Looking for a luxury holiday break in Wales?

Keylet have available two luxury state-of-the-art Barns, perfect for those looking to holiday in the tranquillity of the countryside. Nestled in the Vale of Glamorgan and with only a 10 minute drive to Cardiff city centre, the Cwrt Yr Ala Barns are the perfect way to relax and unwind.  The Barns can sleep groups of 6 or 4, but can also be rented together to accommodate larger parties, up to 10.


The History

The Barns are situated in the grounds of the country house, fittingly named Cwrt Yr Ala, set in 42 acres of land and formal gardens which were built in 1939 by renowned architect Percy Thomas, although Cwrt-Yr-Ala’s history can be traced as far back as 1166 when Adam de Sumeri owned the manors of Dinas Powys and Wrinstone, which included the site of Cwrt Yr Ala. Other notable families who previously lived on the estate were the De Reigni family, Simon de Raleigh (The Sheriff of Glamorgan), Sir Charles Somerset (Earl of Worcester) and let to WH Brain (The Cardiff Brewer). According to local legend, a downed Messerschmitt landed in the house’s vast grounds during World War II.

If you decide to holiday here, you will have plenty of activities to choose from, aside from exploring the 42 acres of land. There are tennis courts, an outdoor heated pool, formal gardens, BBQ area, play area and hot tub.
