We travelled from Newport (Gwent) to spend a day at Dinefwr and we were most definitely not disappointed! There is so much history there. Newton House is atmospheric and the exhibitions are fascinating. The grounds are perfect for a walk and the castle is amazing. Not huge but a proper castle and in such a dramatic position. Very significant historically... More

This is a fine building originally constructed in the 1660s but since then has been hidden behind a Victorian 'Ventian Gothic' stone facade. The estate was in the same family Rice / Rhys for a few hundre years before they sold it in 1976. The National Trust purchased it in 1990 and a refurbishment was carried out in 2006. Whilst... More

Hanging finished our walk we wanted to visit the tea rooms for a drink and slice of cake. To do this you have to pay to enter the house! Ok, I know you get to look round the house too, but we weren't interested in that, so as a group of 4 adults it was going to cost us £16... More

A great place for a walk And then a well deserved cream tea. The park is big enough to spend the whole day if you like walking

Discovered Dinefwr whilst holidaying in the Brecon Beacons. It's one of the gems of the National Trust; a ruined castle with stunning views, a fascinating house to wander around, and parkland to explore - we wished that we'd arrived earlier as there was so much to see and do. Excellent cafe in the house too. One of those places that... More

We have visited Newton House and Dinefwr many times before but last night's trip prompted this review as the event on 20th December 2013, exceeded all our expectations. Invitation to a Christmas supper at Newton House, decorated in traditional Edwardian style decked in greenery from across the estate. Towering dressed Christmas trees in both the outer hall and billiard room... More

Dinefwr has it all. Lovely home made food in the cafe. Interesting exhibition in Newton House and the walk to the Welsh Princes castle is worthwhile for the stunning views.
