Monknash, Vale of Glamorgan
Monknash is situated in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales. It derives its name from connections with Neath Abbey, who once had a manor house and farm at Monknash. The village lies between the beautiful Glamorgan Heritage Coast and the rolling countryside of the Vale.
The Millennium Heritage Trail wends its way through Monknash en route from St Brides Major to Marcross and St Donat's, passing the rocky shore and rugged clifftop scenery at Nash Point. Many walkers call in for refreshments at the historic Plough and Harrow Inn.
The old inn has been a hostelry for over 500 years. The Church of St Mary, Monknash, dates back to Norman times and it is believed that the roof was made from Spanish Armada ships that were wrecked on a shore nearby. Near the church is a dovecote, which would have been used to supply meat during the Middle Ages.
The beaches of Traeth Mawr and Traeth Bach are within a two mile walk. The market town of Cowbridge is nearby, with its small independent shops and boutiques. The beaches of Llantwit Major are also 4 miles south of Monknash.
