Beaupre Castle
St Hilary, Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales

Beaupre is a medieval manor house, heavily modified in Tudor times. Much of the building is now ruined, though the gatehouse and porch have survived.

Admission: Free, open between 10:00am and 4:00pm

How to get here:

»

Road: A48 - Follow the A48 to between Cowbridge and Bonviston. Take the road south towards St. Hilary; bear left as you enter the village, then at the end, turn left and then right again. Continue as this bears left and then follow it to the junction with St Athans Road; the layby is on the left-hand side. (Note: you will pass a private road to the castle/farm, you can't go that way!) (~1.6 miles, ~4m) +

Parking Details

There is no parking at the castle itself, the nearest place to park is a layby on the St Athan Road opposite Howe Mill Farm.

Where to walk

Walk northeast along St Athan Road until you reach the bridge crossing the stream. There is a footpath that leads to the castle just to the other side.
