Hidden away in the vaulted cellar of the former dairy on the estate, it’s peaceful, cosy and exquisitely styled. Overflowing with character, original 18th century features include the striking walls and vaulted ceiling that are completely made up of exposed stoneIt’s a true escape. Outside you can enjoy romantic strolls in the estate’s gardens and admire views of Glamorgan’s Heritage Coast. Meanwhile, days out can be enjoyed at local beaches, the Wales Coastal Path and the historic town of Cowbridge.


Take the original stone steps down to the basement level of the former dairy of the estate to this wonderful, luxury guest room. Brimming with history and character, original 18th century details include the stone vaulted ceiling and the window which was once the old coal shoot.

The room is very atmospheric with soft lighting, plus luxurious furniture and furnishings. The king-size bed is dressed with fine linens, while a stylish, bespoke glass screen opens to the en-suite shower room that has a walk-in, rainfall shower.

Whilst there aren’t kitchen facilities or a dining area, there are tea and coffee making facilities with complimentary tea, coffee and milk provided.
