Magic magic magic.

Harry and I can't stop smiling and crying and laughing about all that has been magic over the past week. All of which was only made more magical by the Plas Dinam team. Their care, kindness and "nothing is too much" attitude led to us all having such fun. They took care of us the minute we first got in contact. We got to make our wedding our own. The interior and exterior of the house is incredible, but the to be able to also experience the woodland, the stables and every nook and cranny this wonderful venue has to offer was just spectacular.
A special mention to Katie, our wedding Coordinator. I haven't got enough words to express my gratitude for this beautiful human. She feels like an angel gift that was given to us upon booking Plas Dinam. She was like a fairy god mother in the background that made everything so seamless and easy and made us feel we were constantly safe in her hands! I
Owe her a lot more than an espresso martini... but I simply wish I could have her as part of my team always. Thank you.

Everyone has said what an incredible experience it was staying in Plas Dinam, making it home for a few days and those big beautiful walls sharing their history of love with us.

The most magical weekend

We had our wedding weekend here! I cant even begin to explain our experience. The house and grounds itself are absolutely stunning, it all went so perfectly. We had a pizza party on the Friday night using their pizza oven, Saturday the morning of the wedding was unreal, we went for a walk to the swimming lake and went for a swim, it was glorious. Such a chilled and magical experience. It’s your house for the weekend so everyone genuinely felt at home and when we needed help Louise was on the other end of the phone, she was brilliant throughout the whole process and guided us to the perfect weekend and wedding. We got most of our suppliers from a list they provided with trusted suppliers of everything and there was not one disappointment. Worth every penny, if only we could take everyone back there for our first anniversary 🤗 highly highly recommended!!

Exceptional experience and beautiful country house

The best of the best from start to finish. We had our wedding at Plas Dinam and it was fantastic from start to finish. Eldrydd, Tyson, Louise and team are FANTASTIC. They were amazing to deal with. Plas Dinam is beautiful surrounded by rolling Welsh hills. It’s an idyllic setting. Plas Dinam has so much history and beautiful items in the house. Incredibly, Eldrydd and Tyson are the most accommodating, approachable, flexible and relaxed owners we have ever worked with! Nothing was ever too much trouble. What we loved about Plas Dinam was it was not ostentatious. For example we used the stables for our wedding breakfast. However, during the winter it is used as a stable for the horses. It’s not called the “stables” to stick to a theme or make it sound more authentic. I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you so much for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. Lastly and most importantly, there are NO hidden charges. They are fully transparent. What a place. what a team.

Just Fabulous

We got married at Plas Dinam this September and just wow, it was everything we could have dreamed of and more. It was the perfect venue and without a doubt the best weekend of our lives.

All of our guests were blown away by the house, the beautiful gardens and the surrounding scenery. Being able to have so many of our guests stay with us on site was so special and meant we were really able to cherish every second of the weekend.

The Plas Dinam owners and staff were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. Lou was particularly brilliant on the wedding day, making sure everything ran smoothly so all we had to focus on was enjoying ourselves.

We absolutely loved the beautiful wedding barn and being able to add so many of our own personal touches. The atmosphere in the evening really was magical.

We could not recommend this venue more highly, we have certainly made memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Plas Dinam!

Best Wedding Ever!


We got engaged during the second lockdown of 2020 just before New Year. We decided to plan a wedding that would be full of optimism family and friends for 2022 as we knew how much that was needed.

When we first visited Plas Dinam we instantly knew this was where we would get married. We had already fallen for the glass roofed stables from the pictures we had seen online but the house and gardens cemented that this was the place for us.

Planning the wedding was a daunting task but with Plas Dinam’s recommended suppliers we were able to combine our own suppliers to create a day that was 100% ours. This wouldn’t have been possible without the very wonderful Louise, their wedding coordinator, who was on call to answer any questions no matter how silly throughout!

When booking your wedding at Plas Dinam, you get the whole place for two nights. This meant that we were able to make full use of the old bread oven which has now been converted to a wood fired pizza oven. With the help of Tyson and recommended supplier, David Rowles, friends and family chipped in to create their own pizzas. What was lovely about the first night was that close family and friends who were staying either in the house or glamping in the bell tents were able to settle in and have a lovely relaxing evening before the big day. It felt like we were on holiday and all of our favourite people were there.

The morning of the wedding was beautifully sunny which meant our guests could explore the area, lots went on walks, others played tennis on Plas Dinam’s tennis courts. Getting ready was a relaxed and wonderful experience; there was no need to worry about getting to a venue on time because we were already there! It was amazing looking out of the window and seeing the chairs had been set up on the lawn ready for the ceremony and later our guests as they arrived.

After a reception on the lawn we had our wedding breakfast at the stunning glass roofed stables. Our caterers were exceptional and the whole evening flowed seamlessly. We used one of the small stables to create a ball pit for the kids which went down a treat. As the evening got a bit chillier, suddenly out of nowhere a fully lit fire pit arrived on a fork lift! It truly was the most magical day and so many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

The house itself is steeped in history and so tastefully decorated. There are prints of the paintings that the Davies sisters bought and donated to the National Museum of Wales throughout the house. There’s also a museum room itself where you can learn more about David Davies. What a delight to find the perfect wedding venue with a positive history that contributed to the cultural heritage of Wales.

The only downside was that we didn’t get to swim in the secret lake and so we have every hope that we can return next summer for a dip! We can’t thank owners Eldrydd & Tyson enough!

Picturesque venue with a stunning team to match!

Janna and I booked out Plas Dinam for the bank holiday weekend in August and we couldn’t be happier with how our weekend was managed. Everything from the support we had in the months leading up to the event, to the service we experienced from the team from our arrival to our departure was exceptional. They simply did not miss a beat when following our requests for set up of the reception venue, arrangements with external suppliers and our programme for the day.

The picturesque house and grounds are kept in amazing condition and were provided fully equipped for us to manage our own self catering arrangements for the weekend. We opted for use of the Pizza oven on Friday night with Tyson (who was always available when needed) giving us a quick run down of how to use it. We managed to serve all of our guests on-site in no time at all and was so much fun - highly recommend this.

The stables where our reception was held is brilliant both from of a functional stand point and looks stunning too! It easily accommodated our circa 120 guests with space for lounge furniture, cake table, gift table etc and even had some spare rooms on the side. One of the greatest aspects of this venue is that the place is essentially yours for the weekend so you can reasonably customise your whole event and make it completely your own.

Katie, Louise and Eldrydd were obviously of great support prior to the wedding but what really surprised Janna and I is how far the team went to ensure that everything was perfect. We ran out of decorative material for our table runners on Friday whilst we were setting the reception venue, Katie noticing this, went out to Newtown of her own accord to go and find some more for us and brought it back the same evening for us to finish setting the stables. This gesture simply speaks volumes about the kind of service that we experienced and we both are ecstatic with how the weekend went.

Dream venue and location

My partner and I were looking for a venue that we could make our own (no packages, strict guidelines or standard decor) and came across Plas Dinam shortly after getting engaged. The house/venue is even more beautiful in person and I lost count of how many guests fell in love with the place, I can highly recommend it for a wedding or even just a group getaway. We also loved that the house had family history and was more relaxed than some other places we visited, which comes through when meeting Eldrydd and Tyson.

Eldrydd and the team were accommodating and patient with us as we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID, despite having a weekday wedding it was more than we could have ever imagined! All our vendors did the most amazing job and only enhanced the already beautiful space.

I have to give a special shout out to Katie, our coordinator who went above and beyond the usual venue coordinator duties not only on the day but in the weeks and months leading up to it. She was a calm and organised voice on the day, helping make decisions I didn't have the headspace or time to think about.

We spent three full days at Plas Dinam exploring the grounds and making use of the facilities - I highly recommend using the pizza oven, it was great fun for our us and our guests!

The most SPECTACULAR venue and incredible wedding team!

If you are looking for a magical wedding venue with amazing scenery, beautifully kept grounds, accommodation for all of your friends and family, the perfect party space and the most helpful team then please look no further – Plas Dinam literally has it ALL!

When we got engaged we were looking for a venue with relaxed vibes that we could put our own stamp on and came across a picture of the incredible glass-roofed stables at Plas Dinam which immediately caught our eye. Following a little further investigation we discovered that there was so much more on offer – an incredible 19th century house, glamping for your guests, the option to have the entire place to yourselves for as many nights as you like, wildflower meadow, lakes, tennis courts... We could go on and on.

As soon as we spoke with Eldrydd we knew it was the venue for us as she was immediately so open and accommodating when we launched into our ideas of celebrating across four days with additional events around our main wedding day. Nothing was too difficult.

When the weekend finally arrived (after a covid-related year-change) it was everything we had dreamed of and more. Eldrydd, Tyson, Katie and Louise were so incredibly helpful across our time there – an absolute dream team and always on hand if we needed anything. Not to mention the amazing bar staff (shout out to Shona), groundsmen and all of the team who made the house look so pristine before and after our time there.

So many of our guests said it was one of the most spectacular venues they had been to and I have to say dancing on the lawn to a silent disco at sunset with the rolling hills as a backdrop will forever be a hard moment to top!!

We are SO glad we booked Plas Dinam as our wedding venue and look forward to revisiting for a reunion in the years to come!

The perfect wedding venue

This really is the ideal wedding venue. We rented the whole house from Wednesday to Sunday, which was the perfect way to extend the celebrations. Our guests filled every bedroom and raved about their stay. Each room has its own look and feel, and the views of the grounds are breathtaking. We also rented out the lodge and glamping tents, which were amazing and meant that we could have lots of our family and friends on site with us, too. The entire team at Plas Dinam were incredibly helpful from start to finish and made the entire planning process stress-free. The house is filled with everything you could possibly need for your stay - including a pizza oven! The stables, where we had our reception, is a blank canvas, so you can be as creative with the space as you like, which we loved. The location is stunning, with beautiful walks nearby. We can't recommend it enough!

Wonderful wedding venue

As soon as we saw Plas Dinam we knew this was where we wanted to get married in front of our family and friends. It is such a beautiful venue surrounded by the hills. Unfortunately due to COVID we have had to postpone our wedding twice but this period has been made so much easier with the team at Plas Dinam. They have been really accommodating to work with us to plan the wedding we want. They have such a personal touch which has made organising a wedding with the uncertainties of a pandemic a much smoother experience. They even sent us a care package with Welsh treats to celebrate our would be wedding day. It is those thoughtful gestures which really do make all the difference. We really cannot wait until we say I do here.

A Dream Venue

We got married here just over a month ago and could not be happier we chose Plas Dinam! It is so relaxed, you really can make your wedding exactly whatever you want it to be!

Our ceremony was in the drawing room looking out onto the welsh countryside, it fit our 80 guests perfectly with the sun shining through the windows and our friend playing the grand piano in the room.

The house is huge, by the time we left we were still getting lost! Every room is beautiful!

The glass roofed stables for the reception is such a different but perfect space. Other than our wedding day we were unlucky with the weather, but the indoor spaces meant that we still had a brilliant time for the four days we were there.

One of the things that really makes Plas Dinam stand out is the people, we had some bad luck with other venues, but from the second we spoke to Eldrydd and Louise we knew they would look after us, and they certainly did. I can’t tell you how important this was.

I have added a few pictures, but once you see this place you won’t look any where else!

We can't wait!

We are so pleased that we chose to get married at Plas Dinam. Eldrydd and the PD family have been fantastic, especially throughout the pandemic, keeping us informed and managing our postponements with ease. They even sent us a little gift to mark our original wedding date! Not once have we felt under pressure or concerned, which has been very appreciated during these challenging times.

As soon as we visited Plas Dinam we knew it was the only place we wanted to get married, it is the most beautiful house and setting. Our wedding will now be later this year and we can’t wait!! I know that it is going to be the best few days with all of our family and friends!

The perfect wedding weekend!

Plas Dinam Country House soon became our favourite place. From the moment we drove up the the winding path to the house, we knew it was the place for us. Not only could we enjoy the beautiful surroundings that Plas Dinam sits in, but we got to extend our wedding to enjoy a whole weekend at the house for our wedding. We arrived on Thursday to crisp sheets, enjoyed pizza facilitated by Tyson on Friday, our wedding on Saturday in the Stables and a BBQ on Sunday. We feel absolutely blessed!

Eldrydd allowed us to make the house our home for the weekend and no request was too big or none negotiable. They were kind throughout and determined to make sure that, despite to pandemic, we were to have the wedding we had planned at Plas Dinam.

On the day Louise was never far to check how things were going and to organise the various suppliers who were a part of our day. Everything was so smooth and we trusted that Louise was in control.

We will forever be grateful for their kindness, support and consideration throughout! Thank you!

Organised from abroad, everything perfect!

I can’t imagine a more perfect blend of professionalism and hands-off management for a wedding venue. They were flexible enough to let us (the couple) arrive a day before the official first night, and aside from a short planning meeting early the next day, the house was ours to entertain with. All the guests could get comfortable and feel totally at ease and we were free to host as we liked . On the day of the wedding, everything for the ceremony, reception, and party was completely organised without any input from us and we could simply get ready for the day. Katie was so helpful and kind on the day that I felt like I had an extra bridesmaid.

This is of course just on the day - but the whole lead up was equally as wonderful! We wanted an outdoors style wedding in winter and they made everything possible, even to the point of doing things in a way they’d not done before! My partner was always contacting them with questions and requests and they gave him great answers, went above and beyond, and gave us both a lot of reassurance and advice.
Our recommendations:
- book the fire pit for an outdoor wedding!
- book the pizza oven for the night before the wedding and order the dough from the recommended supplier (Andy, I think?)
- Wild Garlic are awesome caterers and have a lot of experience at Plas Dinam - i think they even designed the stables kitchen - plus they’re as kind and flexible as Katie, Eldrydd and Tyson (i.e. very)
- The Lodge is great for families with little kids to get away from the main house. We managed to comfortably fit a lot of people in the Lodge.
- if you’re self catering for breakfast or providing drinks, do a big Morrisons order to the house
- make sure you get some time to wander round the gardens!
I’m sure there’s loads more to say that I’ve forgotten, but we honestly had a fantastic time and i doubt it would’ve have been so perfect anywhere else. A lot of our guests said it was the best wedding venue they’d ever experienced and even our dog didn’t want to leave.

Truly Stunning

This is a beautiful house that balances space and style with a homeliness. The grounds and countryside are stunning and enable walks, swimming and fun. The morning of our wedding friends were rolling out of bed and going for runs, or swimming in the wild lakes. Others were just clustered around the kitchen table. We married in the woodland which was perfect for us but there are lots of options.
Throughout the planning Louise and Eldrydd were helpful and responsive. Lots of advice on timing and set up. We used lots of wonderful local suppliers I would also recommend from pastries from Andy's bread ("these are better than in France" was one comment!!) to local chocolate! Our flowers were also done by a lady from the village (Jane).
