What’s new at Dinefwr this January?
From 7- 31 January 2019, Newton House, Shop, and Billiard Cafe will be closed to visitors as the team work hard to carry out some much needed maintenance and conservation work in some of our special buildings. *The Dinefwr parkland and trails will be open as usual and there are plenty of walks, talks and events to enjoy.
The majority of this conservation work will focus around Newton House and the inner courtyard buildings that adjoin the property. We’re looking forward to showing you the results of our work when the whole site opens again in February.
What are we doing inside Newton House?
As well as making sure Newton House and its collection is properly cared for, our Billiard Cafe will be getting some well-deserved TLC and we’ll be revealing some exciting plans for our inner courtyard too.
What’s new at the inner courtyard?
We want our courtyard to be a space that you, our visitors, feel relaxed and empowered to use as your very own peaceful retreat. February 2019 will see a brand new reading and chill-out area complete with wifi, the daily newspapers and plenty of preloved books to enjoy at your leisure. It’s dog friendly and a warm and comfy place to sit, read and drink a luxury hot beverage from our tea-rooms. Come along and tell us what you think.
Another new introduction to the courtyard will be a brand new gallery space which will host exquisite artwork throughout the year. Our first exhibition is planned for March 2019.
We’ll also be able to give you access to rooms and buildings that have never before been open to the public. Work on these areas will be a continuous process but our January clearance works will surely reveal some fascinating stories for us to share.
