This venue sprawls majestically across 650 acres of Welsh countryside, just 15 minutes from the centre of Cardiff. Boasting two golf courses, extensive sports and leisure facilities and Wales’ largest Spa, its scale alone is impressive.

At the heart of this venue is the Spa. Journey through a warren of serene, hushed corridors and discover a unique relaxation zone around every corner. Recline in the ‘float’ zone on one of the heated waterbeds, catch up with your glossy mags in the ‘chill’ zone or head to the eastern-themed ‘slumber’ zone, curl up under a duvet and allow calmness to descend.

You will find everything you need to unwind here: a 20m pool, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and 19 treatment rooms, making this the perfect venue for groups, who can enjoy simultaneous pampering. Enjoy afternoon tea together in the Chai café before pottering around in your robes and testing the myriad Clarins products on offer.

The treatments list is extensive and ventures from holistic treatments, to non-surgical cosmetic procedures. For total indulgence try the Vale Spa creation facial, a 55-minute, luxurious aromatherapy treatment that will leave you feeling truly spoilt.
