A colourful tapestry of history and folklore, Pencoed House Estate’s rich past can be traced back over half a millennium - some traditions would have us believe that it is even older. The stately banqueting hall boasts original stone walls, a striking vaulted ceiling and a roaring log fire to warm up guests on wintery days.

 

The many residents of the house have included a Member of Parliament, Sheriffs of the County, Ministers of the Church, numerous affluent farmers and indeed descendants of a King of Glamorgan.

Legend even dictates that it was once the residence of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere, and that the Black Prince – during turbulent times - once hid his wife for four months in one of the tunnels supposedly linked to Pencoed.

The origins of the estate remain the subject of much debate, but it seems most likely that it was built by Jevan ap David, a Welsh notable, in the early fifteenth century. The inclusion of the pointed Gothic stone arch in the house’s architecture has suggested to some that the house began life as a small monastery, whereas another theory is that the present day building is mainly the result of sixteenth century construction.

Whatever its origins, Pencoed House Estate is one of the oldest properties in the County of Glamorgan still occupied as a private residence, and remains a jewel in the County’s crown.

The stately banqueting hall boasts original stone walls, a striking vaulted ceiling and a roaring log fire to warm wintry days. Capable of holding up to 120 seated with 200 in the evening, the hall can be arranged in theatre, cabaret or boardroom style to suit your needs, and for larger events, we also offer an array of marquees for hire housing upwards of 120 guests to a maximum of 200. Marquees are located within the orchard.

Adjacent to the Old Hall is the Woodland Bar, a wonderfully cosy self contained licensed bar, which serves as the perfect location for pre and post event drinks receptions.
