St Donat's Castle gardens

Private Venue Hire

With two unique venues to choose from - both enriched with their own character and charm, we are sure to have the perfect venue for you to hire for your special occasion.

Whether you are celebrating a special birthday, an engagement of love or christening for a new addition to the family our expert team can support you with planning your event in the perfect venue in the Vale of Glamorgan.

In partnership with Town and Country Collective, we can offer popular and tailor-made packages that are unique to your special occasion to ensure what we offer is what you need.

Choose St Donats Arts Centre, a converted 12th-century barn with a modern glass-fronted extension boasting views over the South Wales coast and manicured castle gardens. This venue in the heart of the Vale is ideal for those looking to make it their own – a blank canvas perfect for showcasing individual style and creativity.  The Glassroom can accommodate 120 seated guests, or if you are looking to dance the night away, the additional use of the Tythe Barn as a dancing area with a DJ or band means you can invite up to 300 guests for a standing buffet.

If it is grandeur you dream of, St Donat’s Castle doesn’t disappoint. Just a 40-minute drive from Cardiff and 20-minutes from Bridgend, The Bradenstoke Hall – the main function room of the castle, has been home to many lavish parties throughout its history and remains to be the perfect backdrop to drink fine wine, indulge in excellent cuisine and dance the night away.  Invite up to 140 guests for a seated dinner, or if you are looking for something more informal, the Bradenstoke Hall and Great Hall can accommodate up to 200 guests for a standing buffet and disco.

Your event catering is fully managed by our partners Town and Country Collective who will assist you with your celebrations catering and event logistics on the day.  Town and Country Collective offer a range of catering menus that can be found in the downloads below.
