Plas Dinam – Llandinam, Powys
You might also like...
An intriguing history – and a mini-museum of its own – gives Plas Dinam a certain stately grandeur if you’re looking to rent an imposing country mansion. Yet it retains a warm and friendly atmosphere thanks to owners Eldrydd and Tyson, who returned from Australia to take over the house from her parents, Lord and Lady Davies, in 2012. The couple are renowned for going the extra mile to make your stay a magical one, though the pizza oven, tennis court, stunning views, numerous sitting rooms and impressive billiard room leave little else to be desired. Not to mention the private lake for wild swimming, wildflower meadow with rare orchids and fire pit for toasting marshmallows. All 15 bedrooms are traditionally decorated and filled with little luxuries like fluffy towels, quality linen and Ren skincare products. A much-loved family home for many years, its 12 acres of woodland set in the picturesque Severn valley are an invitation for children to explore, while the mansion and glass-roofed stables are perfect for large family get-togethers, parties, weddings and weekends away ‘ just because’.
From £4,800 per weekend
