Your guide to Christmas at Dinefwr

The festive period is always a magical time of year. With frost on the ground, a crisp chill in the air and sparkling lights dancing in the dark skies. It is hard not to be swept up in the magic and here at Dinefwr we try to give our visitors a little of that magic.

Dinefwr Christmas Fair

We kick off the festive season with our ever popular Christmas fair, this year spread across three days, from Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th November. The house and courtyard will be full of stalls, ranging from art and craft to local food and drink. There is something for all the family as Santa will be in his grotto on Saturday and Sunday and there will be entertainment throughout the three days.

Christmas at Newton House

Once in December Newton House will be decorated in a traditional way with a majestic tree greeting visitors as they come in from the cold into our entrance hall. The house will be open the two weeks of school holidays for all to enjoy the Christmassy atmosphere.  

Community Carols

On the 19th December we invite the community to join us for Community Carols. It’s an evening of carol signing around the piano; a perfect way to build up to Christmas.

Boxing Day Ranger Walk

Once you’ve had your fill of turkey on the big day, it’s time for a nice stroll. Join one of our rangers on Boxing Day for a walk around the estate. Burn off those calories whilst enjoying the beauty of a wintery Dinefwr.

Planning for the new year

Newton House will remain decorated into the New Year, but the house will be put to bed on the 7th January for the rest of the month to ensure it is ready for the New Year ahead. Newton House will reopen on the 1st February to welcome visitors in 2019.
