About House

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

It’s also an ideal house forparties 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 isCaersws 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.


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.

Myself and Bridget got married here in September last year, being close to where Bridget grew up it felt like the natural venue to choose for our special day. From visiting and introduction to planning and the wedding day itself, the whole experience was perfect in every way. Plas Dinam is a beautiful house surrounded by some of mid Wales's finest scenery. We have so many fond memories that we will always cherish and remember and we can't thank the team at Plas Dinam enough for making it a day we will never forget.

Such an amazing place with so many facilities and options for special occasions

This wonderful home takes you back in time! A room was devoted to the house and family history, we found it to be very interesting. Our stay was 3 nights and 4 days. We did a shoot on property over 3 thousand acres to explore. Our host was very accommodating!

Plas Dinam is the most magical place for a wedding. Our wedding in August was the most amazing day and the venue definitely made it. We had originally planned for an outdoor wedding, but the weather decided otherwise and the beautiful Drawing Room provided the most wonderful venue for our ceremony! The pictures were fabulous and the Old Stables were the most amazing setting for our reception! If you are looking for a beautiful venue in the heart of Wales with the most friendly, professional hosts, Plas Dinam is definitely the best choice! Thank you so much Eldrydd, Tyson, Julie and all the other staff for making our stay in Plas Dinam so amazing!

Absolutely magical place. Amazing to have all our family and friends together to celebrate.

Fantastic historic, country house with stunning views. Tasteful decor maintained to a high standard. Unbelievably spacious with every comfort to make a wonderful stay.

Fantastic building; great bedrooms; excellent social areas; amazing grounds

We hired Plas Dinam for our wedding weekend in December and it was absolutely incredible! Everything you read in the reviews is true – it really is a magical place, full of grandeur but incredibly homely at the same time. We dealt with Eldrydd and Julie when booking/organising and they were very helpful, approachable and happy to answer our many questions. We used lots of suppliers recommended by Eldrydd and they were all superb. The house itself is so beautiful and the fact it was a family home until recently is really what sets it apart from other venues, it has everything you need and is very well maintained. I loved that the bedrooms all had such a different feeling but were all luxurious – no feeling like someone had drawn the short straw. The little touches like dressing gowns and lovely toiletries added to the luxury. (And wow those beds are comfy!) When we first arrived, just the two of us, it felt such a big grand house that we were a bit overwhelmed but as soon as guests started to arrive the house just came to life and had this amazing energy where everyone instantly feels at home. We had 25 guests and we used each and every space downstairs, it never felt too big but there was always somewhere to escape to if you wanted a few quiet minutes. It was the perfect setting for our wedding weekend and we loved every minute of being there and enjoying such a majestic home.

Gorgeous house. Staff on hand if needed. Beautiful rooms, comfy beds and plenty of bathrooms

Had a fabulous. wkend wedding with family and friends ,. what a amazing beautiful place. plenty big enough for our party of 65 at the wedding venue and plenty of room for the part of over 30 that stayed . beautiful grounds. . would love to return some time and would diffinatly. recommend. Thank you for a beautiful experience.bxx

We stayed at Plas Dinam in April for our wedding weekend. Eldrydd was so helpful in advance, providing contacts for catering, flowers, photographer etc The house is fabulous with a stately home feel and yet also very easy to relax and settle into. We cooked the first night and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our family and friends loved the rooms, the table tennis and billiards and the spaces to sit and chat. Ours was a small wedding and very quickly the house felt like home to us all. We were lucky with the weather and were able to walk in the hills the day before the ceremony. On our wedding day Eldrydd's lovely team of ladies helped make everything completely stress free. The room configurations were excellent - we had the ceremony in the beautiful white room looking over the hills, had speeches in the drawing room, ate the wedding breakfast in the dining hall then used the white room for a wild Ceilidh in the evening. Everything was perfect. Our only regret - that it was all over so soon! Hopefully we will find an excuse to return for another family celebration in the future.

We held a 50th Birthday party/weekend at PD in early July...and WOW! A beautiful house with everything we wanted to cater for our 30 friends. Each bedroom is five star and the downstairs is big enough to have lots of space for a grand party yet intimate enough to find little places to escape. Never too big to be rambling, never too small to be on top of each other. There's lots to do, whether it is gloriously sunny or tipping it down...and we are all looking to book a return visit next year...and on top of everything else our host, Eldrydd, was just lovely and made us feel incredibly welcome...there is nothing not to like

We held our wedding here and Plas Dinam couldn't have been more perfect. We stayed alongside our family and friends for 4 nights, it was totally brilliant to be able to have our most important guests stay with us for a long weekend. The house itself is beautiful, every space is just so well put together. It had everything we needed and everybody was able to do their own thing but come together for group activities. The bedrooms were amazing and nobody had to feel like they were getting stuck with a second rate room! And the beds were fantastically comfy! We also had lots of compliments on the amazing bathrooms. The grounds and gardens were fabulous, and it definitely helped that we had four days of perfect sunny weather. Everybody particularly enjoyed being able to make delicious pizzas in the authentic pizza oven, and we rounded the weekend off with a campfire! It was also a bonus to be able to walk to a fabulous pub for a big group dinner. The setting for a wedding was perfect, with plenty of different spaces for the different parts of the day. Games and drinks on the lawns was super fun, and the stables were beautiful and rustic and we had the best time dancing until late. One of the reasons we picked Plas Dinam was because we would have the ability to DIY many elements of the day. Having the venue for 48 hours before the wedding enabled us to set things up exactly how we wanted things. Eldyrdd, Tyson and Julie were all totally amazing and we couldn't have pulled it off without them. They were present and available at all times without being overbearing or intrusive. Overall we are so glad we selected Plas Dinam for one of the best weekends of our lives!

wow what an amazing place to hold a wedding xx and we were privilaged to stay there all week with my wonderful family and friends it was truly beautiful outside and inside the house xx all the rooms and grounds are amazing xx

I was booked to perform magic at a wedding this weekend. What a stunning venue this is. All the staff I spoke to were lovely ��

Stunning place absolutely gorgeous it's so big you could get lost in it I would recommend this place to anyone you will not be disappointed

What a splendid place. Lots to do and great for a group fun time

What an amazing place. We spent a week there with extended family to celebrate birthdays and a wedding proposal. So relaxing and peaceful. Loved learning all the history behind this amazing home.

What a wedding! Plas dinam as a venue, was incredible. To hire such a wonderful home and be able to have the endless flexibility to make it our own really was something special. To have a large group of our friends and family staying in one house was brilliant. The old stables and it's glass roof filled with sparkling lights was stunning. Eldrydd and Tyson were phenomenal. They honestly couldn't do enough and nothing was an issue. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue. The relaxed yet professional attitude, the well maintained estate, the beautiful old stables - there's nothing more we could have asked for. Thank you, thank you, thank you x

This house is fantastic the grounds are amazing. So much space and so peaceful. Loved it

We had a fantastic family weekend here! Great location, building and facilities, enjoyed by all thoroughly

What a dream house, beautiful, elegant, surprising but above all the best fun ever.

Fabulous place for a family reunion! Would love to come back next year, the house and grounds are mind-blowingly beautiful. Thanks to Eldrydd and Ben for being so friendly and flexible.

Amazing. Magical. Perfect Place for my perfect wedding day . Wish we could do it all again... x x

Love this place! We spent special moments to our friends wedding! X

Great weekend in a lovely house lots to do in the area. Fabulous time

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.

We've photographed several weddings here and every one has been excellent. Great family run Hall that always looks beautiful inside and out. Eldrydd is always a pleasure to deal with and very helpful on the day. :)

What a house!! This place has everything walks,sports,games history. Excellent facilities. An ideal place for people to get together celebrate and spend time together . Eldrydd was very helpful and always on hand to help if needed. Fantastic.

Amazing and magical place. Cracking views, grounds, location, bedrooms, oozing character! Very kind and accommodating owners too. Would love to return. Thanks for a great weekend!

Amazing wedding venue. Such a special place to share with family and friends. Will definitely be back soon!

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.

Wonderful house used for university reunion, great kitchen, pizza oven and dinning room; we'll be back.

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!

The most incredible wedding venue and wonderful hosts (Eldrydd and Tyson). It really was the best week of our lives! Plas Dinam is stunning...we all fell in love with it! Can't wait to return! Many thanks from one very happy bride! X

Just arrived home after using Plas dinam as a venue for my birthday. One word , amazing .

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.
