Llantwit Major Accommodations

Historically Llanwit Major was once a significant centre of Welsh Christianity. The first monastery was built by St Illtud in the 5th century. Guests visiting the parish church will notice traces of wall paintings and an incredible collection of Celtic crosses. Parts of the church date back to the 13th century.

The town also boasts the ruins of a manor house, a medieval town hall, a medieval gatehouse and the foundations of a Roman villa. On the Northern edge of the town is Ty Mawr, a fine example of Tudor architecture. The history of the town is told in a series of blue plaques. Visitors are encouraged to take the Blue Plaque walk where the history of the town unfolds as you walk through the winding narrow streets.

Just two miles west lies the 13th century fortress of St Donat's Castle which been lived in ever since it was built. The castle was bought in the 1920s by the newspaper tycoon, Randolph Hearst, whom renovated the building into a palatial pleasure dome. Later the castle was commandeered for training of army officers during the war and then in 1960 was taken over by an international sixth form school called Atlantic College, which is still thriving there.

The town has grown considerably in recent years, but the town centre with its winding narrow and high-walled streets still maintain its ancient character. Llantwit has a number of independent shop, restaurants, cafes and pubs such as The Old Swan Inn which dates back to the 16th century.
