A family-friendly National Trust walk around stunning Dinefwr – the first parkland National Nature Reserve in Wales.

This lovely walk starts from Newton House, thought by some to be the most haunted house in Britain!

Dating back to 1660 and given its gothic facelift in the 1850s, Newton was home to the Rhys family, descendants of the rulers of nearby Dinefwr Castle.

Pop into the information centre close to the car park. Then head up to the house and into the woods and follow the ‘Brown’s Walk’ signs – named after landscaper Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown who advised on the park’s beautiful layout.

The track will take you into the medieval deer park. There’s a dragonfly pond with a wide boardwalk that leads to a wildflower meadow. You’ll be able to see Dinefwr castle from here, perched on a hill overlooking the Towy valley.

Circling back to the house why not sample local produce in the café, browse for Welsh souvenirs in the shop, or even taste local wines and beers overlooking the croquet lawn.

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
