One of South Wales' most fashionable places, rural Cowbridge is full of sophisticated shops and plays host to a fantastic food festival each autumn. If you like to shop in style then you'll love Cowbridge High Street. The town has numerous unique, family-owned shops selling up-market clothes for men and women as well as jewellery, leather goods, shoes, antiques and crafts. Eating out in Cowbridge is always a treat too, whether you're looking for a lunchtime bite or a three-course meal.

Cowbridge has a wealth of history dating back to Roman times, with a Roman Road going to the west right through the town. Cowbridge's historic past is reflected in its present day buildings, which add to the interest and character of the town.

Discreetly hidden just off the High Street is Cowbridge Physic Garden, a haven of peace and tranquillity and creates awareness of the curative properties of plants. Close to Cowbridge are the Grade One listed gardens of Dyffryn House which show off the best in Edwardian garden design.
