The Bear is the bustling heart of the charming town of Cowbridge. Ever since anyone can remember, it’s been a gracious gathering place to meet, talk, celebrate, socialise and stay. It began life in medieval times as the town house to Llanmihangel, a local country house – both still standing today.
Replete with nooks, crannies and tales to make your hair curl, The Bear has a special spot for everyone, from modern glitz to gracious 18th century ballroom. Whether you’re after boutique shopping and chic cocktails, fine dining with friends or a bracing coastal stride* followed by a local pint, The Bear has a corner for you. We often wish the walls could talk. We’d love you to come and add to our stories.
