Newton House is in Dinefwr Park, Wales and contains the remains of Dinefwr Castle. The building is currently owned by the National Trust but historically was the residence of Earl Cawdor. The title ‘Earl Cawdor’ was created in 1827 for John Campbell, one of the Clan Campbell.
The castle was constructed by Rhodri the Great in the 9th century.
The House is haunted by a White Lady. Elinir Cavendish is believed to have been murdered by her spurned lover in the House. Reports differ whether Elinir Cavendish was the sister or the cousin of the lady of the house but it is believed she was forced into a loveless marriage and fled to Dinefwr to escape.
In 1980 the house was occupied by a television production company. Many of the film crew fell ill during this time and there are reports of strange atmospheric reactions during film. The director and an editor from the company also reported witnessing an extremely beautiful girl appear, drift across the room before apparently vanishing into a cupboard.
