visited Newton House and Dinefwr castle in Late October 2012. Dry day but no hot so great day for visiting attraction. Having got to the site we went to the entrance. the receptionist was incredibly friendly and helpful. my friend with whom I visited in registered disabled so as her carer we had a free place. we visited Newton House first. what a fab place. Really sensitively dressed so you get a sense of the grandeur of living in this house. As we walked around we were encouraged to play the piano and there were no roped off areas so one could handle (sensitively of course) the exhibits. The house displays life in servant and upstairs rooms, in addition as the house was used as a hospital for soldiers during the 2nd world war, we were able to get a sense of the ward.The restaurant food appeared good and was not that expensive. next time i visit will definitely plan to eat there rather than just having a coffee. loved the overall ambiance of the house, friendliness of staff and way that history from the 12th century was portrayed.
as my friend was disabled, we were able to drive down very close to the castle; so glad it was dry as would have been apprehensive driving along the track without a four wheel drive. the castle was well preserved. could only imagine what it would have been like in the 12th centuary when it was built.... what an achievement. great to see the water on 3. out of 4 faces.
UNFORTUNATELY THERE IS NO LIFT FOR WHEEL CHAIR USES OR THOSE THAT HAVE DIFFICULTY IN WALKING UP STAIRS.
the general scenery was great, we were not fortunate enough to see the deer but did see the white cattle.
as you can tell was enamored with the place and will definitely go again
