The Vale Resort is a unique destination, set in 650 acres of green natural beauty but reassuringly accessible to the M4 and Cardiff City.
Located in the Vale of Glamorgan, the resort is the result of 20 years' work undertaken by a local businessman who turned this 9-hole golf course into an impressive and much-loved local landmark.

Four star resort with a castle.
This contemporary luxury venue sits comfortably beside the historic Hensol Castle which has been lovingly restored with the addition of 21st century touches. This 4 star resort property has impressive facilities including two 18-hole golf courses, spa with 19 treatment rooms, health club, three restaurants and a castle! With 650 acres of playground the outdoor activity options are endless.

Versatile meeting spaces and outdoor activities.
The resort looks and feels like a rural country estate and is minutes from Wales’ vibrant capital city. The versatile and flexible spaces in both the main building, coupled with stylish accommodation and the endless options for outdoor activities make this ideal for residential and overnight groups. 

This resort perfectly combines modern state-of-the-art spaces with the historical grandeur of Hensol Castle.
With 13 multi-function versatile spaces, this makes it a meeting and event planners dream. Hensol Castle can be hired exclusively with space for up to 240 for a grand gala dinner or take an intimate boardroom for those top-level meetings.

143 bedrooms and 13 meeting and event spaces with the largest holding up to 700 attendees. The resort will appeal to even the most seasoned meeting attendee. The on-site technical team are there to support and can help build bespoke backdrops and exhibition stands.

Built in the basement of Hensol Castle there is also a gin distillery where there is a gin school and visitor experience. Take home a bottle of your very own bespoke bottle of gin.

When Bishop Desmond Tutu stayed at the resort he spontaneously started a sing song in the hotel reception which ended up with a full reception, guests included, all singing!
