Newton House was originally built during the medieval period for the Rhys family, owners of Dinefwr Castle. It is known to have been later modified in 1595 and 1603, The current Jacobean style Newton House was completed in 1660 under the command of Edward Rice (same family but now anglicised to Rice after Henry the Eighth seized the estate in 1531, but the family were allowed to buy it back from the crown bit by bit later). In 1775 Capability Brown was hired to create one of his famous landscaped gardens, and the Gothic influence was added in Victorian times.
