Female Dorm

The inner courtyard flat forms part of the courtyards adjoining Newton House on the estate of Dinefwr Park and Castle. The combined living area and kitchen are homely and sociable. There are fantastic views over the seventeenth-century deer park from the patio which is reached from doors off the living area. The old kitchen for Newton House is situated below and the bunkhouse would once have been used for servant’s accommodation.
