Welcome to Pencoed House Estate

As you sweep down the grand tree lined driveway and arrive at Pencoed House’s majestic arched entranceway, you know you have arrived somewhere rather special. A residence with a rather regal air - unsurprising since the estate was once home to descendants of a King of Glamorgan.

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. Whatever its origins, Pencoed House Estate is one of the oldest properties in Glamorgan.

Offering an idyllic and serene setting in the heart of the South Wales countryside, Pencoed House Estate provides the perfect fairytale wedding venue for the most important occasion of your lives. If planning your big day is something you’ve dreamed of all your life, then we firmly believe in bespoke.

A Colourful Tapestry Of History And Folklore

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 descendents 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 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 100 seated and 160 standing, 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.

Thirty six acres of breathtaking grounds with immaculately manicured lawns, orchards, flower gardens, shrubbery, babbling brooks and woodland make the perfect photographic backdrop, whatever the event. From a Pimms reception or croquet match on the lawns, to a romantic photo shoot by the stream, the flexibility of our extensive outdoor space will greatly complement your event.
