The Vale Resort has a close association with sport being home to the Wales national rugby and football teams and training venue for Cardiff City and Cardiff Blues. The Vale Resort was also a proud team bases for the Rugby World Cup 2015.

Situated on the grounds of the Vale Resort is the 17th century Hensol Castle. This magnificent Grade I listed venue is steeped in history yet delivers the latest technology through state-of-the-art multimedia facilities. Few event and conference venues make a grander first impression than those at Hensol Castle. Set in 650 acres of picture perfect countryside in the Vale of Glamorgan, Hensol Castle has retained its breath-taking 17th century features – including turrets, gothic towers and feature staircases. Don’t be fooled by its historical appearance though. During the £10 million restoration project, plenty of warmth was injected and a few 21st century touches were added to bring it bang up-to-date – we’re talking state-of-the-art multimedia systems for conferences and events. Hensol Castle now hosts a new Courtyard Hall which accommodates up to 200 guests for a dinner and 300 for a theatre style conference. This is complimented by five smaller conference rooms in the castle itself that can host between 10-90 delegates per room theatre-style. The Castle is available for exclusive hire to ensure your event is private and dedicated entirely to you and your guests.

The Vale Resort offers a warm Welsh welcome and a willingness to pull out all the stops to ensure you feel right at home. Whether you visit the Vale Resort for work or pleasure you’ll find all you’d expect from a top four-star resort but in a relaxed and friendly environment with attentive and courteous staff. Situated just 3 minutes off junction 34 of the M4 and 15 minutes from Cardiff city centre, the Vale Resort is ideally located to offer something for everyone, making it one of the UK’s most desirable destinations.
