The house was easy to find and we parked 4 cars on the drive for the weekend. We were met by Christine, who showed us around the house and explained how everything worked before leaving us. The house was easily big enough for us all to move around, get ready, cook breakfast etc. without tripping over each other and the front room is an excellent size for large families / groups. A taxi into Cardiff is about £20 and this arrangement is better that 4 separate hotel rooms. It's a lovely house in a lovey area with a great pub - The Cefn Mably Arms - lovely owners who we may have visited on one or two occasions while staying..... Great weekend, thoroughly enjoyed and will defiantly be looking to book again for next year.

Perfect for a long weekend for a group of "girls". Easy 20 minute walk through a lovely park to town & quick, cheap taxi ride back if needed (when lots of shopping done!). Good places to eat close by as well as in town, check out Trip Advisor for the places over the road. Cardiff a lovely place to visit, don't be put off if there is rugby on as the atmosphere was great, although we watched the game from the comfort of the apartment & the friendly pub opposite! Recommend to look for tucked away parking in the streets behind the property as not all permit spaces. A safe, friendly feel to the location. Few shops opposite for essentials, not far from a big Tescos on the drive in; good bike shop opposite too!! If you are considering this property...do it, it's great. Enjoy
