The family-run luxury resort also boasts an on-site health club that includes a gym and 15m indoor swimming pool as well as an on-site café, sports hall, personal training studio, beauty and wellness clinic and a spin studio.
The health club has a separate entrance plus parking for non-resident use but only a short distance from the main hotel. The hotel also offers an award-winning restaurant called Portraits, where fine dining can be experienced within the characterful dining rooms inside the historic manor.
As well as the 42 individually interior designed bedrooms, the drawing rooms and function areas popular for weddings and events, a new owner will be buying a site that is steeped in history.
The manor, and many of the features within its walled garden was listed as Grade II by Cadw in 1976, amended in 2000, for having ‘architectural interest as a large 19th century Tudor-Gothic country house retaining original character and detail’.
But there has been a house at this location since at least the early medieval period, as the listing states that in the late 11th century there was an earlier manor on the site that was the home of Nest, daughter of the Prince of Glamorgan, while from around 1610 to 1857 the house was owned by a branch of the Bassett family of Old Beaupre.

The present house is said to have been built in 1864, designed by David Vaughan of Bridgend for David Williams. It was extended plus improved by his son Judge Gwilym Williams, whose wife just happened to be descended from Nest.
The house passed down the family to Sir Rhys Williams, when it played host to society, including the Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VIII.
During its lifetime the house has been restored after fires in 1922 and 1952, used by the Red Cross as a convalescent home and was sold in 1985, and then again in 1996 to current owners Leah and Colin Rosenberg who have restored the building to the enchanting, historic and popular hotel guests enjoy today.
