Our Dream Day
We hired Plas Dinas for two whole days, with their experienced team on hand throughout. We were looked after but at the same time left to feel at home in their beautiful country house. Annie created our very own package, which we worried would cost so much more but it doesn't. You get 5 star service and incredible food. Worth every penny. I wish we could do it over and over again.
