Pant y Bas sits in landscaped grounds with the River Myddfai flowing spectacularly through the garden. The clear waters of the Myddfai are a haven for Otters, Dippers, Trout and Kingfishers whilst the once persecuted Red Kite now soar overhead.
The name "Pant y Bas" translated into English from Welsh means "shallow hollow". The ancient history of this area is immense and instantly visible with its castles, monuments and remains.
Pant y Bas should be proud with the historical links to Dinefwr because Dinefwr has one of the most resonant names in the story of Wales. A deeply historic site in a magnificent landscape setting, Dinefwr has been at the heart of culture and politics in Wales for over one thousand years. After the war, properties and land (including Pant y Bas) were sold off or fragmented with the exception of Dinefwr Park and Castle.
Unfortunately Dinefwr Park and Castle went into decline until the latter part of the century, when The National Trust took over its restoration and management.
The imposing ruins of Dinefwr Castle in the grounds of the park enjoy wonderful views of the Tywi Valley. The castle was linked to the princes of the ancient Kingdom of Deheubarth and was teh 12th century court of the great warrior and statesman Lord Rhys. An exciting and informative 'hands on' exhibition, revealing the stories of Dinefwr Park and Castle is available in Newton House. Built in the 17th century and now wrapped inside a gothic shell, Newton House was home to the powerful Rhys family. White Park Cattle have been at Dinefwr for a thousand years and are an emblem of the power of the Welsh Princes. Over one hundred fallow deer graze in teh Deep Park, helping to sustain the rich variety of wildlife at Dinefwr. Some of the trees are believed to be 700 years old Two other dramatic castles in the area are Dryslwyn and Carreg Cennen
