Insole Court

Attraction in Cardiff

Insole Court

Nestled in the leafy Cardiff suburb of Llandaff, Insole Court is a mansion house with a rich history and an even brighter future. Saved by the community, the 160-year-old house has undergone essential refurbishments and the ground floor is now open to visitors. Alongside this, the Court has the brand new, Stable Yard room hire facilities for community, business and private functions and the Potting Shed Café, serving freshly baked cakes, brunch and lunch 7 days a week. Upstairs in the mansion, visitors can experience a permanent heritage exhibition, “This House is a Stage”.The experiential walk-through audio drama brings local history to life in the form of a dramatic rendition of the rise and the fall of the Insole Family who built and inhabited the mansion, spanning an entire century from their arrival in Cardiff in the 19th century.

Author's Review

Having visited many stately homes and mansions throughout the British Isles and Ireland, I was convinced that I had seen everything, but I was wrong! On the day I visited Insole Court, I was completely taken by surprise! Surprised and shocked that I thought I’d seen all of what Cardiff has to offer and then here it was, hidden within a leafy suburb of Cardiff, was this great house with over 160 years of pure history and upstairs in this mansion house, plays host to various exhibitions, details of which can be found on their website, which you can find the address also on this page. The restoration project that saw this house brought back to its former glory has taken a lot of hard work and it just shows you what can be achieved when you have local support behind you! I really like this house and I’m sure you will too, the staff are all really pleasant and all really do go out of their way to ensure your visit here is one not to be forgotten.
