Venue Overview

Thornhill, Cardiff
The Grade 2 listed New House is a serene and romantic country pile, originally built by a wealthy Welsh industrialist, Thomas Lewis in the 1730s. A country hotel located in the stunning Thornhill, just outside of Cardiff.


We love its extraordinary natural brightness, all year round, whatever the weather. The picture windows perfectly frame the secluded rural idyll and sweeping views out beyond the Cardiff cityscape across the sea to Devon. It quietly takes your breath away. It’s a little oasis, just outside Cardiff, that country feel with the city views, the best of both worlds… and you certainly feel like you are on top of the World.

For complete jaw dropping wow, our view, our backdrop, our grounds have everything to make your day unforgettable from start to finish.

For the modern couple, our Wyndham Suite provides the perfect blank canvas with large windows and a secluded patio.

Our Garden Marquee is simply exquisite with its beautiful drapes and woodland backdrop.

Looking for something outdoors with the security of an indoor feel? Standing proud with the city backdrop is our glistening Glass Pergola, a wow factor like no other. The rolling hills, tree lined driveway, rustic bandstand and secluded swing make the perfect secret spots for those romantic album shots too.

We dealt with both Emily & Kath in the wedding planning. They had timing and questions prepared- almost like a wedding planner- no stress for us! They were both absolutely fantastic & answered any questions we had. The wedding menu-tasting evening was fabulous & the waitress was so helpful! On our

wedding day, Kath was amazing & calmed my nerves completely in the morning. Everything was done to perfection, and I did not have to do or worry about anything on the day- they dealt with all our suppliers & had everything sorted. The whole team was highly professional and accommodated us & our guests. We had the most magical day! The venue is stunning, & the views wow’ed all our guests. We can’t thank you all enough for a perfect day :)

We had such a magical wedding at the New House Hotel. The staff were amazing, making the whole day stress-free. Also, the resident DJ was brilliant in playing all the good songs.

Anthony and I can’t thank each and every member of the staff at the New House Country Hotel enough. From the moment we made enquiries about holding our wedding there to the day itself, everyone went out of their way to make our day so incredible. Nothing was too much trouble and they thought of

everything from the small details to the large. We had our ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening party all in the marquee. The transition from one to the other was seamless. The marquee is out of this world, the venue is stunning, and the views are breathtaking. A huge thank you also to the chef and kitchen staff. Every guest couldn’t praise the food enough, from the wedding breakfast to the hog roast we had in the evening. If you have never been to the New House, you must pay them a visit as words just aren’t enough to praise this hotel and its staff enough. Anthony and I would like to thank each and every person from the bottom of our hearts who helped make our wedding day so amazing

The New House Country Hotel has been amazing from start to finish. From the initial meeting with Emily (wedding coordinator), the staff at the venue have made us feel welcome at and ease. As well as the stunning views, the venue offers excellent wedding packages with a variety of food options and

room availability. The taster evening allowed us to taste all the fantastic food with staff asking for feedback after each course, showing us that they truly cared that our experience would be everything we dreamt of.

In the lead-up to the big day, we met with Cath who chatted to us about the logistics of the day, and no questions were left unanswered, Cath took care of everything relating to suppliers for the day which was a huge help. The venue offers several rooms and buffet options for the evening before which allowed us to have a lovely chilled evening with family. The new boutique room for the bride-to-be is stunning and allows the bridal party to get ready in style at the venue. Bedrooms are very spacious and kept to a high standard. The new marquee is quite simply breathtaking.

The updated, modern look alongside its secret positioning wowed everybody. The food, the staff, and everything relating to the venue were amazing.

We wish we could do it all over again. Thank you everyone!
