Dare you go on a "live" ghost tour at Wales's "most haunted" National Trust property?

On Halloween, Mark Rees joined Ronnie - Wales' finest spooky tour guide - and a gang of unsuspecting members of the public for a creepy night to remember at Newton House, Dinefwr.

Sitting in the heart of a medieval deer park near Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, the property is said to be not only the NT's "most haunted" Welsh location, but their fourth in all the UK, and the grand manor house has a long and colourful history.

During this tour strange sights are seen and strange sounds are recorded, including bangs, scratches and music from closed-off rooms.

Is this evidence of paranormal activity at the property steeped in Welsh folklore and legend, or could there be a more mundane explanation?

Make up your own mind by joining author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) on a ghost hunt as he spends Nos Calan Gaeaf exploring Newton House's Gothic surrounds on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast... if you dare!
