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.

Wanted to take my two littles for a walk with an adventurous feel so thought this would be a perfect location. I expected to pay a parking charge but shocked to discover that they actually charge 'admission' per person. £20 for me to walk about for an hour with the littles is way out of my pocket! Such a shame... More

First off the Castle is lovely and presents fantastic views when you get up there. For this we would recommend going but unfortunately what I believe was someone from the National Trust drove at speed down the track in a truck looking like they were on a mission which wasn't great. If you don't park in the grounds then visiting... More

I live locally to Dinefwr and have NT membership so it was not my first visit. However, with guests over Christmas looking to walk off the turkey, this was one of the few places we could find open on Boxing Day. A crsip bright day, we had a lovely time walking round the grounds, starting by going up to the... More

Been here three times with my boyfriend. Its his place that made us want to become members of The National Trust! There's so much to do and see. Many paths to walk, an incredible house, a castle and wildlife. We had a tour of the house during one of our trips and it's well worth it. The staff are lovely... More

I was there with my husband and mum. We went there for a few hours to look around in the castle and share tea&scones in the cafe.The price was ok-6.50 per person if ypu are not a member. There is a nice cafe- really clean but very slow. The place was well kept and very informative. The view outside is... More

We took a trip to Llandeilo for the Christmas Market and had a great afternoon out. We parked using the park and ride where we were minbussed up to the house. The journey up was great. We had a lovely lady who made the short ride extremely enjoyable by getting the people on the bus in the festive mood and... More

Just love it here. Lots of footpath options. Castle is in good enough condition for a good explore and the view is wonderful. I haven't tried the house or cafes yet.
