De Courceys Manor: AN AWARD WINNING Family-Run Legacy

At De Courceys Manor, everything is family-owned and family-run with a passion for delivering unrivalled personal and bespoke service to match the needs of our guests. This dedication to a superior quality of service matched with your specific needs has won us not only the multiple awards but also a reputation for delivering the finest venue and accommodation in Cardiff.

Built in the 1890's by Frederick De Courcey Hamilton to placate his homesick wife, the manor was initially a gorgeous wooden lodge and an instant local. After burning down in the late 1980's, the then-owners rebuilt the lodge, faithfully recreating elements as it was adapted to the historic family home that stands today. In 2010, it was passed to the current owners and now serves to welcome all who would come stay with us. 

Now, the manor is run with a passion for perfection that has made it the perfect venue fit for all styles of events as well as offering it's own take on luxurious country style accommodation. This enchanting manor, located in one of the most beautiful areas of South Wales, has been refurbished and re-positioned as a key destination for luxury weddings, bespoke venue hire for events of all sizes. At De Courceys Manor, award-winning modern services meets historic beauty.
