Cabans at Hide, Wales
Hide at St Donats boasts three beautiful, uniquely hand-crafted Cabans. Tucked away in secluded spots in a 7.5 acre arboretum; Hide’s Cabans combine luxurious accommodation with sea views and serenity in nature. Situated in a remote location near the quaint village of St Donats in South Wales and only 25 minutes from Cardiff.
The name Caban, is inspired by Welsh meeting rooms historically used at Welsh mines. We couldn’t imagine a nicer place to have a meeting! The three Cabans at Hide are named after three old mines: Merios, Llwynon and Dyllas. Each Caban is quirkily designed and furnished, electricity is provided and 4G available. The three spaces are discreetly positioned at least twenty metres away from one another. Perfectly positioned for couples to enjoy some solitude.
Each Caban is exquisitely decorated and furnished. Calming tones, beautiful rugs, soft bedding along with a glowing woodburner create a relaxing environment. Each Caban has a double bed with luscious cotton sheets, electric blankets, plump pillows and the most gorgeous MelinTregwent’s woollen throws. From the comfort of your warm bed you will be able to soak in those amazing views, what else could you want!
The Cabans each have a separate private bathroom and kitchenette. The kitchenette provides all the essentials including two electric hobs, a mini oven and a small fridge/freezer. Breakfast need not be any hassle when you can order croissants, butter and marmalade for a small fee. The bathroom has a toilet, basin and walk-in shower, luxurious organic soaps and lotions provided.
In the summer months treat yourselves to some alfresco dining by cooking your favourite foods on the charcoal barbecue right on your own terrace. Whilst during the winter you may prefer to ‘cwtch’ up to one another in front of the fire pit with a delicious hot chocolate. Merios, Llwynon and Dyllas are situated in Paula and Tom’s (the owners) private Tresilian wood, which is available to explore!
Despite the Cabans being in a fairly remote location they’re still close to many amenities. The nearest shop for essentials is just over a mile away, perfect for picking up some delicious snacks! And there are various local pubs and restaurants close-by, such as the Hare and Hounds and The Old Swan Inn. If you fancy learning about some local history you can book a tour in St Donats Castle. Or visit The Royal Mint, St Fagans National History Museum or the Big Pit National Coal Museum. The lovely market town of Cowbridge, 7 miles away, is full of independent shops to peruse at your leisure and wonderful cafes and restaurants.
If you have come for some adventure, plenty awaits! Just across from Hide is an access point to the Vale of Glamorgan Heritage Coast. Where a 14 mile coastal path awaits your footprints. If you’re into cycling, The National Cycle Network route 88 runs near the Cabans. Containing a mixture of on and off road routes. The Hide even caters for water babies! Test your balance with some surfing or kite surfing at Southerndown Surf School. Or take to horseback and trek the outstanding beaches of South Wales.
