Description: Dinefwr is a wonderful 800 acre estate with parkland walks, a Mill Pond...
Dinefwr is a wonderful 800 acre estate with parkland walks, a Mill Pond, Bog Wood Boardwalk, Childrens Play Area, Newton House with Tea rooms and courtyard shopping area and a Medieval Castle. The estate and Newton hosue are owned and managed by the National Trust. Castle Woods and Dinefwr Castle are owned by the South Wales Wildlife Trust and managed by Cadw. Dinefwr is a beautiful place to escape the rush of modern life and enoy the scents and sounds of nature. Whether you are marvelling at the wonderful panoramic views of the Towyi river from the castle parapets or getting up close to the dragonflies on the Mill Pond, you cant help but fall in love with Dinefwr's Parkland. There are walks to suit all abilities and childrens tracker packs to help families discover and have fun together. Newton House is not a noral National Trust dressed house but instead acts as an exhibition telling the history of times gone by. The charm of Newton House is truely expereinced on the free Hidden House Tour. It is a house with no ropes and very much a space for families to enjoy. Fancy playing a steinway piano ? You can in Newton House. Inside the house there is also the Billiard Room, a licenced restaurant, the China Passage Art Gallery; and the Inner Courtyard Gift Shop show casing local products and plants. Car Parking charges apply to those who are not members of the National Trust but allow free access to the parkland walks, play area and boardwalk as well as the access to the Castle. Admission to Newton House is charged separately but is free to National Trust members.

We visit the park at least weekly for dog walking and it is a favourite of ours to take visitors to. Unless you are a NT member, you will need to pay for parking. Over the past few years NT have increased their restaurant facilities and I can recommend the cream tea after a good walk. There are several walks... More

My husband and I arrived just in time to participate in the house tour, well worth it and very enjoyable. The tour, of about an hour, was extended to an hour and at halftime! The guide did well for a new stafff member and she was very knowledgeable considering. She was enthusiastic and we enjoyed her commentary. She did, however,... More

Don't expect a short visit to Dinefwr. We parked just in time for a 'Behind the Scenes' tour and it was excellent. Our guide was Marianne and she was full of enthusiasm and information about the house ........ plus a sense of humour. The tour took over an hour and as we then had a light lunch at the restaurant...

On arrival go to the Welcome Centre to book the behind the scenes tour. Numbers are limited to about 20 per tour They do one at 12.30pm and 2.30pm This lasts for about 11/2 hours and our guide Marianne was extremely good. The highlight of the tour are the views from the roof of the house. If you want a... More

The park has fabulous mature trees and an abundance of bird life and wild flowers. We stayed in the National Trust farmhouse (which is for rent) as a group of friends and everyone enjoyed their individual or group strolls and walks around the grounds. The views from the castle ruins are fabulous and of course there are the long horned... More

We arrived on a Sunday and only had a few hours to view the house as we were on our way travelling home. We booked in for the tour and were so glad we did. At first we viewed the rooms of the house and the gardens, and then the tour took us to places that we would never have... More

Had a fantastic time in the park, then around Newton House, what a stunning property. From the house we walked through the park and stopped at the tea rooms for refreshment. True to what is expected from NT, the location and ambience are fantastic, the staff are well informed and explained the history of the building, Food was top quality... More

We often visit this property and enjoy breaking the walks with a meal in the cafe. But something must have changed since our last visit! The staff were clueless and running around like headless chickens. The food that we ordered was obviously re-heated and was frankly inedible. My own choice - a simple baked potato- was like an old boot... More
