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 shepherd’s hut.
The furnishings fit perfectly with the feel of the place. You have a double bed dressed with duvet, electric blanket and warm woollen blankets, and a kitchenette takes care of your cooking needs with a mini-oven and hob, and a fridge freezer.
For breakfast you can order Croissants that can be delivered to your accommodation in the morning, can be ordered the night before. They will be delivered at your preferred time in a hide bag including four croissants, butter and marmalade, the cost is £6.50.
The remote location is all part of the beauty of Hide, but you won’t 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 Donat’s 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 Llantwit Major, Dunraven, Porthcawl and the beautiful Bryngarw Country Park in Bridgend. It won’t 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.

Just home from a lovely few days at Hide. Stayed in a Caban and it was absolutely wonderful. It was a first for me to have a separate kitchen and bathroom to the bedroom / living space but it worked. We absolutely loved the place. We couldn't have felt more safe, and the place was immaculate and clean. Paula & Richard were both lovely, couldn't have been more friendly and Paula went out of her way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We will definitely be heading back as soon as we can.

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 isn’t 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 can’t reccomnend this place enough, We will definitely be returning!

Brilliant stay at Hide! The Caban was beautiful and the views were lovely. Paula was a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble. Look forward to going back in the summer x

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

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!
