Your guide to Christmas

We've got a jam packed Christmas for the whole family to enjoy

The story of Christmas in Newton House
Ever wondered what it would’ve been like to be an Edwardian at Christmas? At Newton House, the Lord of the manor would have given his servants the gift of long johns for Christmas. Wouldn’t it be strange if your boss bought you underwear this festive season?  
  
Come in from the cold as we welcome you to Newton House’ Christmas past. Discover how the servant staff would prepare for the Christmas festivities in the basement and what Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day looked like for those upstairs. 
Guided House tours are running throughout the day during opening times.


Traditional Christmas Fair at Dinefwr
25 and 26 November. It’s our biggest event of the year and this time it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before. A mansion and courtyard filled with tasty treats and gift ideas. Enjoy choirs and bands in the music marquee and eat your fill in the bustling courtyard and don’t miss the festive entertainment in Newton House.
Santa himself will be in his grotto on both days and there's free mulled wine and mince pies for all.
Pick up something beautifully handmade or locally sourced at our Christmas Fair. It’s a great day out for everyone. 
Free park and ride from Home Farm. Normal admission prices to enter the Fair.

National Trust Members' preview evening will be held on 24 November. Also open to Blue Badge holders 
 
Community Carols 22 December 6pm.
We love being part of the local community of Llandeilo and this is our way of saying thanks for all of your support over the past year. Our Community Carols event is a day of festive fun for everyone, a chance to gather around the grand piano and sing some of our best loved Christmas songs. We do this every year and everyone is invited.  
  
Write a letter to Santa
Did you know that Father Christmas is a big big fan of Dinefwr and Newton House? In fact he always comes along to our Traditional Christmas Fair to talk to all of the little boys and girls who come to enjoy the fun. This December we’re giving children (and their adults) a chance to write directly to Santa, we’ll make sure he gets your letter.
