Plas Dinam has been a family home since 1883. Plas Dinam was home Gwendoline and Margaret Davies who collected a significant impressionist collection in the early 1900's. It now belongs to the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff.
In 1884, David Davies of Llandinam bought Plas Dinam from Captain Offley Crewe-Read, whose family did not ever live in the house and sold when they ran into financial difficulties. Home to the 1st Baron Davies and his sisters, the well known and revered sisters, Margaret and Gwendoline. Also for a short period during the war, Gordonstoun school was relocated from Scotland to ensure the safety of the schoolboys. After the War the house accommodated an Agricultural College
In 2001 a fire devastated the top floor of the house, and over two years parts of the roof and and house were rebuilt and much of the house was redecorated.
Lord and Lady Davies ‘down-sized’ and moved out in 2011. Their daughter Eldrydd and her family returned from Australia to look after Plas Dinam and allow others to enjoy this wonderful house.

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.
