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.

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!

reception in the most amazing venue with the most amazing team who helped make that day so special.

From the moment the girls and i checked in on 7th Sept, to the moment Rich and I checked out on 9th, every single member of staff that we encountered were absolutely exceptional, from yourselves at the events planning team, to front of house, housekeeping, night porters, bar and waiting staff, Greg (DJ), kitchen staff. I am in awe of all of these amazing staff members who really do go the extra mile to ensure we had the most amazing day (even in the blistering heat we had.)

Every single guest member commented on how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the team were and how exceptional the food was.

We are looking forward to our first anniversary so we can come back and re-live it all again, if I can stay away that long!

Please can you pass our sincere thanks to each staff member that worked for the duration that we were here, even the members we didn't meet as I know they still played a part behind the scenes.

Once again, thank you all for the best day we could have dreamt of and hope to see you soon.

even commenting that it was the best wedding food they’d ever had! And what a beautiful venue.
It was also lovely that we were all able to have our breakfast together the next morning and the food was amazing!

Even though you had weddings either side of ours you would never have known, the quick turn around was so smooth everyone was just so impressed.

So again, thank you so much for making our day so lovely. We would definitely recommend anyone to have their wedding with yourselves!
