About Plas Dinam

Plas Dinam is a Victorian country manor, sleeping 44 guests in flexible accommodation. It’s very much a family home, and ideal for large family celebrations, or weddings. The main house sleeps 34, with a further 6 possible in the Lodge and 4 in the Chauffeur’s Loft.

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 a 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 a 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 the 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.

Reviews

We chose Plas Dinam for our wedding not only for the gorgeous country house and stunning views but also for the opportunity to truly create an event that was our own. No other venue we viewed was able to give us this flexibility. Whilst it was the grounds of the venue that really sold us, we loved how the house itself manages to be both enormous and also very comfortable/homely. A great place to spend the weekend with our nearest and dearest. Our date rolled around and despite prior stress owing to pandemic-induced uncertainty, our wedding on the Saturday was utterly perfect. We had a beautiful humanist ceremony and a relaxed drinks reception out on the lawns overlooking the mountains. It was the most spectacular setting we could have asked for. The stables for dinner and our evening reception were equally wonderful and made for a great change of scenery for our guests. We kept our decor simple, making the most of our gorgeous florals and some lovely table runners - everything looked spectacular. It wouldn't be fair to write a review without taking a moment to thank the wonderful team at Plas Dinam. Throughout all the uncertainty of the pandemic, Eldrydd reached out and ensured we stayed informed as government guidelines evolved. In the final few months of planning, and over the weekend itself, we had the absolute pleasure of working with Lou who did a wonderful job of coordinating our big day. She was calm, composed and it felt as though she was really invested in our event. Both Eldrydd and Lou paid attention to the things that were important to us for our event and worked hard to make it happen. It was also a lovely touch to receive a gorgeous card and gift from the PD team in amongst our other cards from guests. We truly had the wedding of our dreams, which didn't always feel possible when planning amidst a global pandemic. Our guests repeatedly told us it was one of the best weddings they have attended and now we have so many gorgeous memories to look back on for years to come. For a stunning 'build-your-own' wedding in the heart of the glorious Welsh countryside, look no further!

We had a wedding party on the 1st july 2021 at Plas Dinam. It was incredible. After a number of rescheduled dates we finally had our day. I am originally from the area and new the beauty of mid wales. Plas Dinam is set within this incredible landscape and so we new straight away that it was the perfect setting for us. The team were very supportive throughout the pandemic and we are thankful for all their efforts.
