Thank you to those who have already shown interest in our upcoming painting course.
This 2 day course will start on Sunday 18th September and is run by a professional artist.
If you’ve ever fancied having a go at painting but never had either the time or known where to start, this short course could be for you. All painting materials are supplied.
We’ve created an exclusive package including lunches and an evening meal on one night.
You can find full information at plasdinas.co.uk/painting
Book up quickly though – there are limited places.
Christmas & New Year
Plas Dinas is a fantastic place to have to yourselves over Christmas or New Year.
We’re doing a great price on self-catering and don’t forget the whole place looks magical when it’s decorated for Christmas and the open fire is lovely and cosy in the winter. You may even get snow again like last year.
The best thing is it’s less that £69 per person per night! We’ve also made it more flexible this year as it’s a four night break as most people prefer not to make a whole week of it.
If you book this month and mention the newsletter we’ll even reduce the price by £1000! This makes it even better value at just £55 per person per night!
Contact us soon if you’re interested.
Dine for Free!
This month we are offering you the chance to enjoy our award winning dinner for free!
Just book a mid-week break before the end of August and you'll enjoy a FREE dinner for 2 people on one night of your stay.
Book using the date box on our website and enter DINE4FREE in the Promotional Code box.
Min. 2 night stay between Sun-Thu in July or August required. Note that dinner is not available Sun & Mon. If dinner is required on first night of your stay please choose option when booking. Drinks not included.
See plasdinas.co.uk/food for more details on evening meals.
Newsletter | Issue 22 | July 2011
The summer season is upon us and for once the weather is very summery this week - clear blue skies, and nice and warm. We are busy most nights so it’s full on at the moment. In any spare moments, Andy is trying to keep the grounds under control and catch up with the strimming – the strimmer was out of action for a couple of weeks being repaired – over use caused it to snap in the middle!
We’ve welcomed back both Alys and her sister Elin recently – both helped us last year in our busy period during their academic holidays. We've also a new lad called Rhys start this week who lives down in the village so Andy has been training him up to our exacting standards!
We hope you all managed to catch Four in a Bed – more about that below...
Best go and finish making those beds, bake those biscuits, finish the strimming and lay up the dining room, oh and dinner prep and ….!!
We hope you can take advantage of some of the exclusive deals and discounts we are offering this month and hope you see you at Plas Dinas very soon...
Channel 4 Fame
1.9 million viewers tuned in to see our episode of Four in a Bed – more than Alan Carr's new show that week! – and the most viewers of any other episode for this series so far.
We were inundated with hundreds of emails and phone calls saying we “were robbed” and how well we’d done. The general consensus was that everyone loved the look of Plas Dinas and would like to visit us and that we were very fair in our judgements.
Unanimously the Liverpool couple were struck down for their lack of respect by sliding down our Grade II listed stair banister! We didn’t know about that until the show aired!
Thanks to everyone who sent us lovely messages and we hope you manage to book up soon. We’ve already had several people visit as a result as well as a wedding booking.
Check out our special "Four in a Bed" page on our website, which includes the links to the Channel 4 website where you can watch the show if you missed it.
For those of you that don’t follow us on Facebook or Twitter and so don’t see our regular news updates, you may be interested to know that following the feedback we received during the filming of "Four in a Bed", we changed the way we do things and got rid of the sauce and sugar sachets on the breakfast tables.
If you require red or brown sauce, we now serve it in a small square dish with a spoon on request and sugar is now in a lovely sugar bowl. We have always actively encouraged guest feedback and are happy to receive constructive criticism so we can constantly improve the service we offer so never be afraid to let us know if you have comments to make.
We can’t promise we’ll always be able to change something or make everyone happy but we will do our best!
Welcome to all our new Guest List subscribers – we’ve had lots since the show went out. As a special thank you, we thought we’d offer a great newsletter exclusive deal this month.
We’re keen to increase our out of season business, and welcome as many of our new subscribers as possible to Plas Dinas. So book a room with us for two nights in October or November and we’ll give you two for the price of one! That’s a massive saving of anywhere from £125 to £250!
Booking conditions – must be booked on our website mentioning “Newsletter 22 Offer” in the “Comments” box. Only available to "Guest List" sign-ups made between 13/6/11 & 15/7/11. Your booking email address must match the one used to sign-up. We will reduce the cost by the price of the cheapest night. Your credit card will be charged in full at the time of booking. Non-cancellable or refundable.

Don’t forget that Plas Dinas is a great place to get married or to get together for a special celebration like a significant birthday.
Plas Dinas comes alive when it’s full of people and it’s great to have the whole place to yourselves exclusively for a weekend. If you’ve got the place to yourselves then we’ll accept children too.
If you’re a smaller group, you can experience dining in the Gun Room as Prince William did and there’s loads to do locally during the day. Your friends and family will be very impressed with the surroundings and 5 star service.
We’re already starting to fill up for key weekends in 2012 but if you’d like to discuss holding your wedding or a special event here at Plas Dinas Country House then give us a call or email us.
