  The Detail...

Hidden away in its own arboretum, looking out towards the South Wales coast, you will find Hide. Around 25 minutes from Cardiff, this pretty setting is the home of the Hide Cabans a trio of cosy, handmade cabins with both sea views and a touch of serenity.

Each spacious Caban has its own terrace with a barbecue and fire pit for a little camp-style dining. You will be warmed up inside too, with a wood-burner heating the whole place and a lovely hot water shower in the bathroom, situated steps away in a shepherds hut.

The furnishings fit perfectly with the feel of the place. You have a double bed dressed with duvet and warm woollen blankets, and a kitchenette takes care of your cooking needs with a mini-oven and hob, and a fridge freezer.

Its there that you can also enjoy breakfast, with croissants, granola, yoghurt and the like available to order each morning. The pavilion space is also available some evenings for guests to relax, offering a cosy lounge area.

The remote location is all part of the beauty of Hide, but you wont have to drive too far to find some recommended restaurants and bars. The heritage coast of South Wales is a rewarding area to visit, perfect for peaceful, contemplative walks along the rugged cliffs.

The Vale of Glamorgan, of which the hamlet of St Donats is a part, is full of history too. The pretty village of Llantwit Major is nearby, a settlement dating back over 1500 years. At certain times, St Donats Castle opens its doors to the public, and a one-of-a-kind arts centre can be found in the grounds, with regular performances in its inspiring glass room.

Other local attractions include the beaches of Porthcawl and the beautiful Bryngarw Country Park in Bridgend. It wont take long to reach the city life of Cardiff the National Museum, Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay and much more could see you going back for a second visit.

Whatever you choose to do in South Wales, the wonderful Hide Cabans will be an undoubted highlight of your stay.

TDG says...
"You always hear how great and friendly the owner is, but it isn't until you stay here just how true that is. Paula went above and beyond to make sure we had the most amazing stay and even took the time to give us a full back history of the area that we didn't even know existed. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, very eco-friendly yet still incredibly luxurious. It's only when you stay somewhere like this that you realise just how much effort the owners have gone to. The log burner in the cabans are easy to use and incredibly efficient, and the beds are the best I've ever slept on! I also loved waking up to all the wildlife running through the open grounds. There's plenty to do and see nearby with some great hikes and fantastic pub food. I really can't recommend this place enough, thank you Paula!"

"I can honestly say this is one of the few places we have stayed where there isnt a single complaint!
Paula has thought of everything that you could possibly need, the kitchen is fully equipped even with a little milk in the fridge.
We thought we might be a little cold given the time of year, but we were very wrong! As well as the log burner, a fan heater, electric blanket and plenty of spare blankets are provided as well, so we were never cold.
Paula is a great host, very welcoming and even booked us a table at the local pub for a meal after a long drive.
I cant reccomnend this place enough, We will definitely be returning!"

"Luxury! As near to an African safari camp experience I'd had. Minus a hippo sleeping outside my tent.... Superb!"

Ed and Lindsey says...
"Unique, exquisitely appointed peaceful luxury in the heart of wild countryside
Hide is a brand new gem of a place on the stunning Glamorgan coastline, nestled in an area of ancient towns, castles and churches. It brings together beautiful design, innovative buildings (each hand made, from shepherds hut to tiny house to caban) and eco-consciousness with an infectious appreciation of local culture, history and art. It is simply beautiful. We stayed in one of the spacious cabans, with our lovely warm bathroom in a shepherd's hut and our kitchen in a summer house. Over a tasty breakfast in the exquisitely appointed pavillion, I counted 18 different species of bird before going off to explore the area. Heaven. Hosts are delightful, and passionate about the place. We will definitely be back!"
