THINGS TO DO
Our cosy cabins are part of Penllyn Estate. Guests are welcome to walk around the 2,000 acres of farm following the nature trails to the lake or exploring the nearby woods.
If you are happy to travel a little further (just over an hour away), Gower is also a beautiful spot. Relax and enjoy its great beaches. Cardiff Bay is perfect for a spot to eat and drink as you unwind on the tranquil water front .
Cowbridge isn’t called the Bond Street of Wales for nothing – the town is full of independent, boutique shops selling a whole host of wonderful things from Vintage fashion to souvenir bouquets.
There’s also a whole host of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs that cater for every dietary requirement.
Or you can stay in the comfort of your cabin, sit on the verandah, help yourself to a free hot drink and enjoy the scenery. Garden and picnic tables await for fine days, or you can chillout indoors with TV and wifi.
A stay at Cowbrige Cabins isn’t complete without a visit to the Forage Farm Shop & Kitchen. They will be happy to find you a comfy spot to enjoy your favourite beverage and a sweet treat.
There is so much to do in the area, the only problem you’ll have is squeezing it all in!
There’s the chance to sandboard down Europe’s second-highest sand dune 20 minutes away at Merthyr Mawr, or hit the beach at Ogmore, Llantwit Major or Southerndown (all within 20 minutes), for a paddle, coasteering, surf lesson, a round of golf or a horse ride along the sand. The lighthouse at Nash Point is well worth a visit too. Also Go Ape adventures at Margam (25 minutes away).
If you’ve still got some energy left, head into Cardiff (25 minutes away) for museums, rugby, theatre trips and everything else a big city can offer.
This being Wales, there are castles aplenty. St Quentin’s (five minutes), Old Beaupre (10 minutes) and the ruins of Ogmore Castle (15 minutes) are all worth a visit. On the way back to your cabin drop by Glyndwr Vineyard (five minutes) or Llanerch Vineyard (15 minutes) for a tour and sample some of the local wine.
Cowbridge hosts a music festival every year in September which brings world-class performances to the town and a food and drink festival in May which promotes fresh, local produce.
Cardiff, of course, has much to offer including the fab St Fagan’s National Museum of History, passionate rugby matches at the Principality Stadium and stacks of shops. If you’ve still got space on the credit card, there are more chances to give it a workout at Macarthur Glen Designer Outlet (15 minutes).
