Go on a ghost hunt at Dinefwr

Newton House at Dinefwr, Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, Wales

Set in the middle of Dinefwr, an 18th-century landscape park, is Newton House. It is rumoured that it is haunted at night by Lady Elinor Cavendish.

Lady Elinor was betrothed to a man she didn’t love and to escape him she sought refuge with her family at Dinefwr, followed by her enraged suitor who then strangled her to death.

Staff believe that there is a presence still haunting the house. Lights switch themselves on and off, muffled voices reverberate around empty rooms and from time to time there is the unmistakeable aroma of pipe or cigar smoke.
