A Very Special Venue

Wedding ceremony in the drawing room at Newton House

Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for considering us for your special day.

Newton House is a characterful 17th Century manor house nestled within the rolling hills of the Carmarthenshire countryside on the romantic Dinefwr estate.

Steeped in Welsh history, Dinefwr is dominated by Dinefwr Castle, the ruins of which stand overlooking the 800 acre parkland National Nature Reserve and the Twyi River.   Driving in along the winding and wooded drive creates a sense of drama that is unique to this special place.

We try not to do too many weddings as the house is run by the National Trust for daily visitors, but every year we accept special bookings from couples who appreciate this unique and lovely Welsh manor.  We keep things simple and special as we’re a small team, and we offer you the choice of the following rooms at varying rates.
