Really lovely cottage

5 of 5
I love this cottage. We had a wonderful little break in Penarth and the cottage was perfect for our needs. Clean, extremely well equipped and of a high standard. I was so comfortable there. It is also quiet which is something I long for due to having noisy neighbour's at home, but near enough to walk to the sea front and lovely pier. We also walked over the Barrage a couple of times. I have friends in Penarth and so we had several lovely meals, the best being Bar 44, wonderful Tapas and not to be missed. We also took my elderly Mom who has been unwell and this was her first little holiday in 2 years. She loved it. I would definitely return, except as the cottage is so lovely it's booked up well In advance and so I'll have to plan ahead!
