Luxury 5* country estate house near Cardiff

Cwrt Yr Ala house is nestled away in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, just past the quaint village of Michaelston Le Pit. This large estate is surrounded by beautiful landscape set for an idyllic getaway.

The country house set in 42 acres of land and formal gardens was built in 1939 by renowned architect Percy Thomas, although Cwrt-yr-Ala's history can be traced as far back as 1166.

It is reached via a long, tree-lined avenue and that's where the real fun begins.

A quick inventory of the property would include a large living area, drawing room with a bar, large downstairs toilet room, entertainment room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, conservatory & utility rooms, and that's just the downstairs.
Upstairs reveals a galleried landing, leading on to six en suite bedrooms, all of which boast king-size beds. And, in case that sounds like a recipe for a world of housework, a house keeper will be provided for your stay. Breakfast will be laid out in the morning in the conservatory and fresh cream tea in the afternoon as well as providing fresh linen and towels.

Grounds consist of woodland, pastureland - said to be ideal for equestrian enthusiasts - formal gardens, an orchard/kitchen garden, private Jacuzzi, barbecue station, an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, and a series of lakes and weirs with cascading waterfalls. But, quite apart from the specs' talk of the marble and terrazzo fireplaces, the cream oil-fired Aga and Chinese slate floor.

A brief history of Cwrt Yr Ala

In 1166 Adam de Sumeri held the manors of Dinas Powys and Wrinstone, which included the site of Cwrt Yr Ala.

Later, it was owned by other notable families such as the de Reigni family, Simon de Raleigh (Sheriff of Glamorgan from 1299 to 1304), and Sir Charles Somerset, Earl of Worcester.

A new Cwrt Yr Ala house was built in 1820 and was owned for a period by Richard Hill, son of the Merthyr ironmaster.

In 1908 the property was let to W H Brain, the Cardiff brewer, who remained there until 1935.

A suggestion was then made that the house should become a part of the National Museum of Wales, but it was turned down.

In 1939 the house was demolished and the present house was built to a design by Sir Percy Thomas.

According to local legend, a downed Messerschmitt landed in the house's vast grounds during World War II.
