Newton House in Dinefwr has long been the scene of inexplicable paranormal activity – in fact, the National Trust call it their "most haunted" location in all of Wales, and their fourth "most haunted place" in all the UK.

The estate in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, has a long and colourful history steeped in Welsh folklore, from the castle on the estate to the mythical white cattle which roam its lands.

But the manor house itself has a more Gothic past, with tales of ghostly cigar smoking, tragic white ladies, servants who continue to work after shuffling off this mortal coil, and children who play games from the "other side."

On this episode, join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he explores Newton House's eerie supernatural history on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.
