Beautiful castle. Stunning valley. Amazing parkland with wild deer. Not to be confused with Newton house which is NT and has a parking charge and entry fee. Dinefwr castle is free and an amazing asset to Carmarthenshire. If you are passing you should visit!

We are so pleased you have enjoyed your visit to Dinefwr. You are quite right the castle is owned by the South Wales Wildlife Trust and managed by Cadw - a beautiful castle with spectacular views. Dinefwr Park including the deer park, boardwalk, meadows and woodlands are owned together with Newton House by the National Trust. We hope you enjoy... More

Set in beautiful grounds, part of which is a Nature Reserve. there are lots of interesting walks - long or short - with a real variety of habitats to see, plus herds of... More

The area includes the Newton House (£4 per person but there is a £10 family deal), a few outlying buildings (that are sadly unavailable for entry), and the castle (free!). Parking costs £6 so I would recommend walking to the site if you're close by. There's an uphill walk to get to the castle but I'd say it's completely worth... More

Our second ruin of the day - and although there were similarities, there were differences which make Dinefwr a really lovely place to spend half a day. A lovely walk across a meadow and then up through a dense beechwood - .especially welcome on a warm sunny, June day - the castle appears out of nowhere. Typical ruined Welsh castle,... More

National trust property which includes a huge park, castle ruins, some outlying buildings and gardens plus the house. It rained on my visit, so the 15 minute walk, mostly uphill, to the Castle ruins was not the best and the views from the castle were then restricted by mist. The day was saved by the House, with its very friendly... More

Didn't expect the park to be a big as it was, initially when we arrived you had to pay £6 to the park the car, which at first I thought was expensive. I collected the brochures from the welcome lodge and then realised the expanse of the park and started on the first walk towards the Castle, oh my goodness... More

We visited with our 2 year old and this place is great. They was fishing nets and kits to identify animals available for free which was great fun. The boardwalk down to the pond is great and we saw deer plus lots of other animals. The castle is fantastic with panoramic views. There is also the great house. Really not... More
