- Hensol Castle
The 400-year old Hensol Castle, located within the grounds of the Vale Resort, has undergone a £10 million revamp, the first phase of which introduces conference facilities in the new purpose-built Courtyard Hall, capable of hosting 320 delegates theatre-style and 200 delegates banquet-style.
The facilities at Courtyard Hall are complemented by five smaller meeting rooms in the castle itself that can host between 10-100 delegates per room theatre-style. The Courtyard Hall has been designed to be energy efficient with heat-retaining and heat-reflective glass, low energy lighting and a natural grass and wildflower roof.
Meanwhile, the 17th-century castle has original architecture, turrets, gothic towers and feature staircases, and its restoration is being completed in close association with the Vale of Glamorgan Council and CADW, the Welsh Government’s body responsible for preserving Welsh heritage.
The former stately home, situated six miles outside of Cardiff city centre and three minutes off junction 34 of the M4, is set within landscaped gardens and has a 15-acre lake and serpentine pond.
The real selling point for Hensol Castle is that it can be hired exclusively, which makes it highly attractive for organisations who want to conduct their meeting or event in complete privacy.
