Visit Website


Set amidst over 650 acres of beautiful Welsh countryside, the Vale Resort is now firmly established as one of the UK's most desirable golf destinations. Plus Wales' highest rated 4* Resort.
Once part of the Hensol Castle estate – a 17th century stately home, the Resort is home to a luxuriously appointed 143 bedroom, four star hotel with the majority of the rooms affording superb views of the golf course and surrounding countryside. Every aspect of the Resort has been designed to maximise comfort and convenience for every type of golfer.
The Vale boasts two championship standard golf courses, the highly acclaimed 7,433 yard Wales National and the aptly named Lake course. Golf facilities here include a teaching academy, 16-bay floodlight driving range, putting greens, a well stocked pro-shop plus a fleet of buggies.
In addition to our two championship golf courses, the Vale offers Wales' largest spa with 19 therapy rooms and an extensive range of indulgent treatments, various dining options plus unrivalled leisure facilities including a 20m pool, fitness studios, squash courts, tennis courts and a large state-of-the-art gymnasium.


Always a pleasure to stay, makes being away for business a pleasure. Staff are always attentive with good facilities and rooms better many 4 Star resorts.
