The Vale

Welcome to the Vale of Glamorgan

 

Come rain or shine there is always something exhilarating about a visit to the coast and countryside of the Vale of Glamorgan, the most southerly point in Wales. It’s the perfect place for a holiday or short break. Browse through the accommodation pages for a fantastic choice of places to stay from cosy bed and breakfasts to elegant hotels or holiday cottages.

The unspoilt protected Heritage Coastline of the Vale has dramatic plunging cliffs and tiny secluded coves. The picturesque countryside of rolling hills and wooded valleys is steeped in history, beauty and culture and peppered with legendary villages, historic towns, fine gardens, ancient churches and medieval castles.

The Vale of Glamorgan is just a stone’s throw from Cardiff, the vibrant capital city of Wales with an abundance of shops, theatres, restaurants and nightlife.

The Vale boasts one of the longest unbroken Christian presence . Few places in the UK have had such a profound effect on the devlopment of Christianity in the 5th century largely through the monasteries at Llanilltud Fawr, Llancarfan and Llandough.  From these places of learning Saints travelled throughout Europe spreading the Christian message.
