Dinas Cross Yr Hen Ysgol, Dinas Cross

Dinas Cross is an extended settlement centred on the A487 As well as the main village it includes Pwllgwaelod where The Sailor’s Safety always kept a light burning to help lost ships, and Cwm yr Eglwys with it’s historic ruined church and an area known locally as ‘Up the mountain’ which extends the village into the Preselies. It is well known for its ‘Captain’s Houses’ which were built by local sea captains when Newport and Cardigan were thriving trading ports.

Y Neuadd


Yr Hen Ysgol, as its name suggests, was once the Village School. The land was given in the 19th Century by the Barony of Kemaes and the school built with local materials by public subscription. Some time after it was closed we were very lucky to be gifted the building by the Barony. It is now a registered charity and the Trustees and Committee are continually working and fund-raising to improve the facilities. We host a number of classes, groups and clubs and also hire our facilities to visitors for parties, meetings and Courses. Hire charges are based on the following: £13.50 per session (am/pm/evening) with some reduction by negotiation for day long or weekend long bookings. Maximum capacity 100 theatre-style, although about 60 when seated at tables is the maximum for comfort in the main hall. We also have an adjacent but separate Meeting Room. Charity No. 1122445 Website Address:
