Ewenny Priory, in Ewenny in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, was a Norman monastery within a fortified perimeter wall, of the Benedictine monks of Gloucester Abbey by Maurice de Londres in 1141.

The building was unusual in having military-style defences. Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the priory, like many of its kind, was converted into a private house. However, the priory church is still in use, and restoration work has recently been carried out by Cadw.
