“A unique stay in the heart of a Welsh vineyard, relax and unwind” - AA Inspector
HENSOL, VALE OF GLAMORGAN
Our Inspector's view
Llanerch Vineyard is delightfully set on a working vineyard with views over the vines to the countryside beyond. Bedrooms and bathrooms come in a range of shapes and sizes including sumptuously appointed suites in the main building. The Cariad Restaurant & Bistro is open for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, with outdoor seating on the terrace in the warmer months. The vineyard's own wines are available to purchase in the small shop area and also appear on the wine list at dinner.

About the area
Discover Vale of Glamorgan
Stretching 14 miles on the coastline of south Wales, Glamorgan Heritage Coast was one of Britain’s first designated heritage coastlines. The project, launched in 1973, covers a 14-mile stretch of coastline incorporating Porthcawl (in neighbouring Bridgend), Dunraven Park, Monknash Coast, St Donats, Summerhouse Point and the cheerful beach holiday resort of Barry Island.
Featuring striking coastal countryside and lush green hills, the aim is to conserve the ‘unique character of its landscape and habitats’ for future generations.
Inland from here, tucked beneath the M4 and with Cardiff looming to the east, is the Vale of Glamorgan county borough – mostly known as The Vale. It’s a primarily rural and agricultural area and in 2003 – perhaps partly helped by its proximity to Cardiff – was determined to be the wealthiest area in Wales. Its main town is Barry, most famously the setting for the TV sitcom Gavin & Stacey. It’s still a popular seaside town, as is the Victorian resort of Penarth, further up the coast.
