Cottage clean, comfortable and well equipped. Travel links by train and bus within 5 minutes walk of cottage. Recommend walking to Cardiff Bay via the barrage, an interesting walk.

Modern, clean, comfortable and easily accessible for going in and out of Cardiff.

5 of 5
We were going to our son's graduation in Cardiff and wanted somewhere to stay near the city and with hotels pushing up their prices for special events this was exceptional value. The house was perfect for us, well equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting room and bedrooms, and the large bathroom had a super powerful shower. There was plenty of wardrobe space so much so that we left 2 coats behind when we left! Chris the owner couldn't have been more helpful and was kind enough to pack them up and send them on to us. Very many thanks, we definitely recommend this property.
