Overview
More
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 which is managed by Cadw. 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. There is a whole site admission charge which includes: * Access to 800 acre parkland * Parking * Newton House * Billiard Tearooms * Castle Walk Cafe * Hidden House Tours * Childrens activites and tours * Estate Walks * Access t

Loved badger watch and photographing the deer/white cattle. Well worth the wait for the badgers to come out ;-) Mike the guide was very friendly and helpful...recommend it to anyone!

This review is for the Dinefwr castle and Newton House, which are combined into one admissions price. They're both very interesting and provide a nice bit of history, a small hike to the castle and then the castle itself - a nice excursion.

Lovely house and gardens and walks. Enthusiastic staff. Lovely to have the 'hands on' approach to the house - you can even play the grand piano. Gives a good idea of a former life and also the influence of its former residents on community and...More

If you're visiting this National Trust property, try to find time for the walk up to Dinefwr Castle, managed by Cadw. It takes about 20 minutes from Newton House, and is a bit of a climb, but the views across the Tywi valley are incredible...More

We first went to Carreg Cennen castle. Which was not bad, but we were finshed rather quickly there. So we decided to drive on to Dinfwr. This castle proved to be much more interesting! The combination with Newton house and a very nice walking area...More

We had a really great time at Dinefwr last Sunday. Do not miss the downstairs and upstairs tours with the most informative guides, which added to the understanding of how this estate worked. Scenic walk up to the Castle is also a must, which could...More

Yes it is dog friendly and no stiles to climb over but a gate to open on the way to the castle. The cafe on the way up to the castle was dog friendly. We saw a few dogs there during our visit too. I believe the only place... More

Yes, at the house on the ground floor but would be almost impossible to reach the Castle.
