Sker House, Porthcawl, originally uploaded by Tourism Bridgend.

The Great House at Sker began its origins as a monastic grange over 900 years ago and was farmed by members of the Cistercian order. The oldest part of Sker house dates back to this medieval period.  Today Sker House is Privately owned but there are public footpaths surrounding the house.
