Dyffryn House house preparing to open to public

A Victorian house which has been largely hidden from public view will finally reveal some of its secrets to the public in 2013.

Dyffryn House in the Vale of Glamorgan is officially handed over to the care of the National Trust on Friday.

The Grade II-listed house's impressive gardens, the creation of the Cory coal family, have long been an attraction.

But from Easter visitors will be able to tour some of the rooms inside the house itself.

BBC Radio Wales reporter Charlotte Dubenskij has been finding out more about the plans for the house.
