discover peace · contemplate the wild

Unique, peaceful luxury in the heart of wild countryside. Explore a stunning part of the Welsh coast from carefully crafted accommodation with an infectious appreciation of local culture, history and art creating a perfect retreat of relaxation.

hide has three romantic snug Cabans, a Bugail (Shepherds) Hut and ‘Walden’ Lodge tucked between trees, bushes and wildflowers offering uninterrupted views of the wild seas. Our wish is for you to see, feel and be immersed in Wales, with visible reminders of myths, history, poetry and art.

Tresilian Wood is the name of hide’s site with its small arboretum occupying seven and a half acres adjacent to Atlantic College and St. Donats Castle. St Donats is a tiny village in the Vale of Glamorgan, just 25 minutes from the Welsh Capital, an area steeped in history, castles, churches and myths. With vast skies, lush grasslands, woods and the dramatic Jurassic Heritage Coastline hide is special.

Book. All aglow. Relax.

The Hide at St Donats was the perfect retreat, we were blown away with the beauty of the Bugail Hut. Paula was the perfect host, a lovely warm and welcoming person. The hut was so warm and cosy and the attention to detail amazing. The area is great, lots of pubs nearby, places to eat and the coastal footpath is stunning and unspoilt. We already starting planning our return during our stay. Cannot recommend this hidden treasure enough
