What to expect

Two floors of Newton House will be dedicated to handmade crafts and gift ideas that have been lovingly made by our local suppliers. 

There'll be lots of festive hustle and bustle in the inner courtyard with the buildings packed with tasty treats to buy and a feast of hot food stalls to fill your belly.

Choirs and bands will perform in the entertainment marquee. *Please note that due to the charity's budgetary restraints there will be no free refreshments at this year's event. The money saved will go towards National Trust conservation work at Dinefwr.

Families with prams and buggies

The Dinefwr Christmas Fair is our busiest time of the year. Whilst we will assess the event environment throughout the day, for the safty of your child and others we must implement a "no buggy" policy inside Newton House during busy periods. An under cover buggy park is provided outside Newton House.  

Quieter times to visit

This year the Dinefwr Christmas Fair will run for 3 days from Friday, 22 November to Sunday, 24 November. We recommend Friday as a quieter time to visit though please be aware that Father Christmas will only be in attendance on Saturday and Sunday. 

To enjoy all the fun of the fair, including festive entertainment and a visit to Santa's Grotto, you must come along on the Saturday or Sunday. To avoid the initial crowds we recommend you plan to visit us from 1pm onwards.


There is a free park and ride service at Home Farm. Disabled parking can be found at the Visitor Information Centre. 

Normal admission applies.
