Overview

Plas Dinam has a warm and welcoming feel whilst being grand enough to create that big wow factor.

Plas Dinam Country House's history and features

Plas Dinam was built for Captain Offley Crewe-Read, deputy lieutenant of the county and JP, and a descendant of the ancient Crewe family of Flintshire and Cheshire. The family did not ever actually live at Plas Dinam, and sold it when they ran into financial difficulty.

In 1884 Plas Dinam was bought by David Davies of Llandinam. Despite having been born into a humble family and starting work as a sawyer, David Davies went on to make a considerable fortune building the new railway line across Wales. He played a major role in the construction of the Newtown to Aberystwyth railway, and then turned his attention to the rapidly expanding coal industry.
