About Cosmeston Medieval Village

Cosmeston Medieval Village, sited within the boundaries of Cosmeston Lakes Country Park, is one of the Vale of Glamorgan's leading tourist attractions. The Village is set in the year 1350, a turbulent period in the history of the Welsh and English.

The remains of the community were discovered and excavated during the 1980's by a team of archaeologists, and the local authority decided that this was a unique opportunity to bring to life part of the history of Wales.

A programme of reconstruction allows visitors to see excavated buildings and gardens recreated, while livestock of the middle ages are cared for by "villagers" in authentic costume.

There is an opportunity to experience medieval life by taking a tour of the village with a costumed guide or you can take a self guided tour using the portable audio system.
