I'm always looking for dog friendly places to visit and so this was perfect. Dogs are welcome to most of grounds on lead except the deer fields. Dog's can go into the ground floor of the house. There is also a big open field which is specifically for them to have an off lead run around. It really is a beautiful place to wander around, parking is £5, but if you decide to visit the house, this gets taken off your admission fee. Toilet facilities are close by to the car park. There is a lovely winding walk through countryside upto the castle, sheep are loose so be mindful of keeping your dogs close. Up by the house are some lovely spots to sit out and enjoy a drink or something to eat from the little cafe, or you can bring your own little picnic. The staff are so lovely and are huge dog lovers! I didn't go into see the house as it would have been a shame to miss floors 2 and 3 but it looked simply stunning. I would recommend a visit to this beautiful little trust if you are in the area.

Great location We sat outside for a cuppa & sandwich which was very nice. The house was ok, but only 3 floors to explore - more information would have been better about these rooms. The deer were even out at the rear to see. Credit to the person on the gate on Saturday 06/08 as she was full of excitement and friendly. The castle is a short walk away through the fields and woods, but is steep and not the easiest for some people. But well worth the walk as the view from the castle across the valley is fabulous.

This entire area is gorgeous. The woman who greeted us at the parking station was wonderful and gave us great information. It is 5 pounds of you aren’t a member of the National trust or other orgs but that amount can be used as credit for the Newton House. We parked and walked to the castle then had a cup of coffee at the Newton House. There are so many wonderful walks and things to do here and the views are just stunning. Definitely worth your time.

Lovely grounds and house. We didn't make it around all the walks due to time, so can't comment on pathways or much of the many acres of land around but it was beautiful countryside views and even saw the deer up close to the house too. Inside the house were some lovely portrait art and the staff were very knowledgeable about the history. It is perhaps a little more empty compared to other NT houses, but you were able to sit in some areas around the house which was very nice 😀

National Trust property and grounds with a Cadw castle accessed through the grounds Interesting house with different exhibitions in various rooms including restoration room with wallpapers, moulds, woodwork and paints and the paintings of the castle, grounds and house. The service areas were well set out so we could see life below stairs. The deer park was closed due to the extreme heat but they wandered up to near the gardens under the tree line so we didn't have to miss out. The coffee was good in the cafe along with a good scone. Plenty of places to picnic .
