Coed Cae Farm

While it’s the garden you come to view, your first instinct will be to stop and admire the panoramic views over the countryside. The gardens are laid out for all seasons, bulbs and herbaceous in shrub borders. Water features with cascades down to a pond, surrounded by mixed borders and trees, offering shade. A native woodland with a large pond offers alternative areas in the gardens.

About Coed Cae Farm

Take the single stone-based track though the parkland, and as you approach the courtyard, sharp right up a concrete ramp. Stay on the track for1m through woodland, fields and plantation. Once arrived at the farm you will have panoramic views over the Vale of Glamorgan/ Cardiff, Bristol Channel and beyond (weather dependent).
Coed Cae is approx. 750ft above sea level and its gardens have developed over 30 years with recent areas created during lockdown, all with the aim of providing a family garden with areas to view the surrounding countryside. The gardens are on a cut into a sloping landscape, the various gradients/level, all have a south facing aspect to the front elevation of the farmhouse. The garden is served by a natural spring/well which is piped to form a water cascade through part of garden down to a pond, it flows out into the woodlands. The pond feature is shaded by several specimen trees and shrubs, one side open for viewing. The garden is predominantly lawn with mix borders offering all year-round interest. There are several sitting areas/patios that provide dedicated entertaining areas or just somewhere to chill out. In recent years the gardens have been extended with hard landscape areas using period features with seating areas around shrub borders with perennials. Near the main garden is a small orchard with several fruit trees and an area of soft fruit, further grass areas are sown with wildflower mixes.
Leading from the garden and down a green avenue edged with native hedgerow is a native woodland extending to over 2.5 acres and contains a large pond. The pond has extensive water lilies, along with native flora at edge, which attract nesting birds during the breeding season. There are paths regularly cut within the woodland and open areas for ease for looking at the mixed habitats, great at bluebell time, best bring your walking boots for this experience.
In the wider farmyard/ barns, there are also mixed shrub borders with spring bulbs and perennials against traditional stone buildings, the parking areas at the farm and new borders create an interest all year round. Wherever you walk and look on the farm, you will discover antique / architectural features.
Family friendly, with some farm animals and vintage machinery on view during the day.
