Old Hall, a town house, was acquired by the Edmondes family in the mid eighteenth century. It lies just inside the town walls and faces onto the High Street. During the period of their occupation the family improved the house and developed the gardens.

This shows the formal part of the gardens. The layout of the south east corner, with formal paths and beds, are suggestive of the area being of earlier origin.

When the Edmondes' left Old Hall in the 1920's, the corner site became a kitchen garden for the Grammar School and then a council tree nursery. This in turn became something of a wilderness and so the Physic Garden was created there with this area of formal lawns with a pond being retained.

The house is now a Community College with the local library and the Cowbridge Health Centre contained within the grounds.
