Old Beaupré Castle in the Vale of Glamorgan will re-open following its closure due to essential structural and conservation works on its magnificently carved Renaissance porch. The medieval manor house castle will open its doors again on Friday 18th March ready to welcome visitors. Access to the property is via the layby located off the main St Athan-Cowbridge Road.
Located near St Hilary in south east Wales, this beautiful retreat which dates from the 14th century and was modified during the Tudor period. Old Beaupre is a fine example of a gentry house in Cadw’s care, alongside other properties such as Plas Mawr in Conwy and Tretower Court near Brecon.
Jayne Rowlands, Cadw’s Head of Presentation, said, “Essential works on the inner porch have been required to keep this magnificent manor house in a good state of repair. I’m delighted that the work has now finished and I’d like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while the work has been carried out.”
