DESCRIPTION

Plas Dinam is a Victorian country manor, sleeping 32 guests in flexible accommodation. It’s very much a family home, and ideal for large family celebrations, or weddings. 

It’s also an ideal house for parties of walkers, cyclists and sport enthusiasts – Wales is renown for its outdoor pursuits, and Plas Dinam makes an ideal base.

The house has 15 bedrooms with 10 bathrooms, some of which are en-suite. The bedrooms including a family suite, which has a double bedroom and two further bedrooms leading from it (and with its own bathroom). Most of the (king-size) double beds can be converted to singles, if necessary.

Downstairs, there is the dining hall, which is double-height and seats up to 60 (or 34 on one long table, if you prefer). There is also a small dining table (seating 8) in the bay window of the wood-panelled sitting room, or you can eat in the large, airy kitchen, which sits up to 10. 

For relaxing after a vigorous day, there is the drawing room and the library, both with gorgeous views over the garden. Should you wish to be distracted (or your children distracted), there is a TV Room with large television, XBox and Blue Ray Player; a playroom, stuffed with toys (and an outstanding dressing-up box), and a sunroom (with another dining table).

For any guests that feel competitive, there is a panelled billiard room, with huge fireplace and billiard table. If you’d like to play something a bit more frenetic, there’s a table-tennis room, ideal for day-long leagues and competitions. 

The gardens as Plas Dinam are well-kept and brilliant to explore. There are terraces and lawns to the rear of the house that catch the sun, and you can fire up the huge gas barbeque, or use the under-cover pizza oven. There are lots of outdoor games to play: giant versions of Jenga, Noughts and Crosses and a normal-sized (happily) version of croquet. 

There is a kennel for your dogs, and stabling for up 5 horses.  

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

The whole of Plas Dinam was built with guests in mind, but my favourite room is the majestic, double-height dining hall, without a doubt. It holds the sort of atmosphere in which to feast like a king after a tremendous day of sport and fresh air. 

About The Location

Plas Dinam is in the Llandinam hills, in mid-Wales, and can be reached by the A470, about 36 miles from Shrewsbury. The nearest train station is Caersws Station, which is 2 miles from Plas Dinam. Caersws has direct trains from Birmingham and Shrewsbury.  

Things To Do

There is a great choice of things to do in the area; walking, horse riding, fishing, game shooting, clay shooting, trail hunting, mountain biking (free-riding), sailing, kite surfing and golf. The owners can arrange any activity you choose, plus transport if necessary.

Weddings

Plas Dinam might have been built with a big family country wedding in mind. The house holds two licenses, one for drawing room (sitting up to 60), or the Hall, which seats up to 100. Alternatively, you can have an outdoor ceremony, in front of the house.

There is both a church (St. Llonio’s) and a chapel in the nearby village.

For the reception, there is the newly-renovated Victorian Stables (which is fully covered and seats 150), or a marquee on the lawn.

Richard and I chose Plas Dinam as the venue for our wedding on 25 March and I'm so glad we did. I loved the house and didn't want to leave! Eldrydd, Tyson and Julie were really friendly and helpful. Our weekend there has given us some beautiful photos and wonderful memories that we will treasure.

Incredible long weekend spent at Plas Dinam 20th May 2016, celebrating my other halves 50th birthday with wonderful friends. Everything about our stay was perfect from our Friday night dining in the very grand dining room, to our Motown live band party night on the Saturday, basking in the sunshine all day Sunday and finishing off watching the sun go down by the fire pit - we even made Pizza's, using Andy's Artisan Bakery for the dough (plus gorgeous pastries and fresh bread delivered on Saturday morning). Eldrydd and Tyson and impeccable hosts and I would recommend this stunning, relaxing and comfortable "house" to everyone. Wonderful memories to last a lifetime - THANK YOU x

Having had a fantastic time last year, staying with friends, we went back to Plas Dinam with extended family in tow. Aged between 2 and 84, we had a wonderful week. PD is so huge we could all spread out (in January) inside with teenagers, toddlers and parents and grandparents finding a space to relax or play. Having said that it was always warm and cosy, with never ending hot water and the best baths I have ever found, which I escaped to with G+T from afore mentioned toddlers. We spent lots of time walking, cycling and riding in the hills, rain or shine they are beautiful. With excellent food delivered to the door from Llanedloes, we had good fun creating feasts in the kitchen, but also had a great time creating pizzas and cooking them in the outdoor pizza oven. Thank you so much Eldrydd, Tyson and family.

We had our wedding here in the late summer of 2015 and the whole experience of being in the house was fantastic. We couldn't have had a better experience; Eldrydd was so helpful and attentive to all our needs in the run-in to the wedding and on the day itself. Eldrydd was able to give so much advice and was willing to help us arrange everything in advance so we were able to have a stress-free day. The house and gardens speak for themselves; the quality and finish throughout ... is brilliant and keeps the period detail so well. The surrounding grounds allowed us to have some amazing scenery for our photos. We loved the venue as it allowed us to have close family, friends and children to stay with us over a couple of days. Each room is spacious with it's own unique character which our guests loved. Having the opportunity of 30+ guests staying with us allowed everyone to get to know each other in advance and fostered a relaxed atmosphere. We couldn't recommend the whole Plays Dinam experience highly enough! Thanks Eldrydd and Tyson for such a memorable, wonderful wedding!

A phenomenal wedding venue! We truly could not ask for anything more. 3 fabulous nights and a stunning setting for our wedding weekend! Thanks Eldrydd and Tyson for making it all run so smoothly! Amy & Chris x

Brilliant weekend for the wedding of my daughter and son-in-law on 21st November. I would thoroughly recommend the venue and also the concept of a wedding 'weekend' with close family and friends staying at the venue, you can get to know each other better than on just the one day. Thanks to Eldrydd and Tyson for 'being there' in the background and letting us loose in your beautiful house. Looking for a reason to do it all again soon!

The perfect setting for our wedding. We had 33 guests (and 3 dogs!) staying for 3 nights from Friday to Monday, it felt relaxed which is exactly what we wanted. All the bedrooms are wonderful so when allocating rooms for guests no one felt that they were relegated to a bad room and everyone felt comfortable. We kept the living room and drawing room shut off from guests until the big day which helped give it the wow factor. For us the drawing room was the perfect place for the... ceremony with beautiful big windows, stunning views and so much light. It meant even though we had a small wedding, it felt intimate not like having a few people gathered in an empty room! Also perfect for the disco later at night. Eldrydd and Tyson (owners) were flexible, supportive and helpful without fault and gave us so many ideas or tips that we hadn't thought of which made big differences (such as having a cleaner pop in on the morning of the big day to spruce up and to help guests feel more relaxed because less onus on them to clean up after themselves and more time to relax). Overall we would whole heartedly recommend this house for any event big or small. We would love to come back in the future. Ben and Hannah

Unbelievably beautiful venue. For a week we lived a dream life in the huge house. The views were stunning. Incredibly peaceful yet never dull. The owners were so nice and relaxed. I loved the house history room. Everything is authentic and well maintained. This was a once in a lifetime great experience!

We held our wedding here in August. We definitely chose the right venue for us. From my initial enquiry Eldrydd was incredibly friendly and helpful. Eldrydd has very high standards and close attention to detail which is exactly what you want from someone helping you organise a wedding, however, she is completely approachable and relaxed at the same time. The house itself is huge - I don't think I managed to see it all during the four days we were there! There were enough bed... rooms to comfortably fit our immediate family and all the bridal party and not once did we feel on top of each other. Eldrydd & Tyson have done a stunning job with the restoration of the place. Everything felt luxurious without being pretentious or stuffy. The ground are beautiful and the views from every window are stunning. I didn't leave the grounds for four days and was really sad to say goodbye! We were fortunate enough for the rain to hold off long enough to hold our ceremony outside (legally!) the front of the house. We had our reception in the old stables in the grounds - a really interesting space with beautiful old tiles, industrial beams and a concrete floor. Tyson was a tremendous help in the stables - he somehow managed to remain constantly present but never in the way while we were setting up. Nothing was too big an ask for him and the day after the wedding he got stuck right in with the cleaning up! I can't thank Eldrydd & Tyson enough for all their help and for making sure we had the best wedding day possible. Looking forward to revisiting for an anniversary!

Fabulous location and a peaceful setting. Great venue to celebrate a special couple's Golden Year! 50 years of marriage... Beautiful memories made here, with 25 or so, immediate family members. This place is a gem, and I would certainly recommend Plas Dinam to anyone, wanting a special venue to spend time with family, friends or both, to celebrate a special event! smile emoticon

We would have put more stars if possible! Our stay at Plas Dinam was the stuff of fairy tales. It was truly magical, perfect in every way. We got married in this wonderful house and 29 of us stayed for three nights. We could not have hoped for anything more: everything we had planned worked perfectly, we could do things how we wanted and everything was available for us to use and enjoy. Eldrydd, the owner, was magnificent and such a friendly, helpful face when we arrived and thought the wedding. The backdrop for a wedding is perfect, facilities are excellent and the atmosphere is magical. Thank you for everything. We would love to return for anniversaries and reunions!

Plas Dinam - the house that just keeps on giving!!! I stayed here about a year ago with 34 friends - adults and children. We had a blast! The children had a fab adventure and the parents had not too shabby a time either! PD literally wraps you up in her warm glow. The type of stay you want is up to you but trust me photos don't do it justice. You've got to get there and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed. This year other friends are there with their circle of friends. ... And if you are looking for somewhere for your do! You've just found the place! Enjoy.

House History

Plas Dinam was designed and built in 1873 by London-based architect, W.E. Nesfield for his client, Captain Offley Crewe-Read. The house was sold in 1884 to David Davies, an admirable Victorian entrepreneur, who made his fortune in the railway and mining industries. Two of his descendants - Gwendoline and Margaret Davies - went on to become great art patrons, establishing collections of Welsh, and national, importance. The property remains in the Davies' family.
