Thornhill Road,

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. New House is 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.
The 37 en suite bedrooms at the New House are distinctively decorated and sumptuously furnished to the highest standard ensuring all modern comforts and facilities are provided. The hotel offers a selection of Four Poster Bedrooms, Suites, family rooms most with superb views.
