General

  • Shepherd's hut in pretty gardens close to the village of Pendoylan
  • A 20-minute drive from Cardiff and the coast
  • Ensuite bathroom and kitchenette; firepits and barbecues to hire

A cosy place to stay, in a chilled-out country setting? Cardiff, castles and the coast within a 20-minute drive? Country pubs a couple of miles away... just how many top-holiday boxes does Duffryn Mawr tick? (A lot.)

What a splendid south Wales spot this is – home to a smart shepherd’s hut in equally smartly dressed gardens (pretty by day and festooned with fairy lights by night). There’s village life in Pendoylan, a mile away, and Peterston-super-Ely, two miles away (and home to a couple of fab pubs), but you’d also do well to swing over to Cowbridge (15 minutes' drive) for supermarket supplies before settling in for an evening by the barbecue or firepit, both of which can be hired on site.

Coast walks, horse riding, beaches and woodland bike rides are all on the menu for folk who fancy a slice of the quiet life, and the cracking city of Cardiff is a 20-minute drive away for dipping a toe back into urban life (or hitting museums, shops, bars, theatres, rugby matches…) Even the ins and outs are easily sorted here, as it’s a simple five-minute journey from the M4 by car and there’s bike storage for two-wheeled travellers (subject to availability).

Local attractions

Coming for countryside? Head out for walks all around the site, detour to Dyffryn Gardens (15 minutes’ drive) or take trips to the area’s castles – Castell Coch (15 minutes) and Caerphilly Castle (20 minutes) are among some of the finest in all the land. Golfing types will be well sorted here too – you could easily play a different course every day for a week, before tackling the famed Celtic Manor course (half an hour) at the end.

Coast caught your eye? A 20-minute drive will get you to the dunes around Merthyr Mawr, or to Ogmore-by-Sea to ride horses through the shallows or play on the sands (or take in a couple more castles…) Surf types can hit the waves at Southerndown with a drive of around 25 minutes; there’s a surf school here too for those who haven't yet mastered the art.

Time for city life? Cardiff’s about a 20-minute drive away, and packed with things to do. The excellent St Fagans National Museum of History is a popular pick (and not just because it’s free…), as is the Doctor Who Experience. There's also a go-kart track, a whitewater rafting centre, top-class shows at the Wales Millennium Centre… and another castle (but of course).

Must see

  • St Fagans: National History Museum (3.4 miles)
  • Castell Coch (5.3 miles)
