About the property

Ground floor apartment. Sleeps 5

The apartment is cosy, light and airy, situated in Cardiff Bay Marina. Within walking distance of Cardiff International Swimming pool, White Water rafting centre, and many more sports and recreational centres.

There are numerous shops and restaurants in the vicinity, including a Michelin starred restaurant in Penarth town centre.

IKEA and Cardiff Bay shopping outlet are minutes away, whilst Cardiff city centre is a short 10 minute bus or train ride away, home to the famous Millenium Stadium.

Cardiff Bay and Mermaid Quay are accessible by Water-taxi, or a brisk walk/cycle-ride over the Barrage. Here you will find lots of great restaurants, bars and nightlife, and the iconically designed Welsh National Assembly building.

If you just like to relax, the apartment is in a very quiet location, with lots of areas to walk/cycle or just gaze at the lovely boats!

About Pat Oram

Hi, my name's Pat. I grew up and went to school in Llanelli, S. Wales, UK.

I spent some time studying in Nuneaton, North Warwickshire, but was drawn back to live and work in S. Wales, where I currently live.

I enjoy dog-walking, playing tennis, golf and eating good food with a nice glass of wine.

Pat Oram purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Pat Oram chose Penarth

I fell in love with the apartment at first sight, having viewed many other properties. It is light, airy and modern, but essentially very cosy. The apartment building and surrounding area is very peaceful, but extremely well situated to enjoy all of the sporting, cultural, shopping and culinary delights of the vicinity. Transportation is excellent, with bus, train and water-taxi links to the city and Penarth town. It is 20mins drive to Cardiff International Airport.

My favorite thing to do is just strolling around the Marina, looking at the boats and then a walk over Cardiff Bay Barrage for a nice coffee .... makes me that I'm on holiday!

Lovely flat in a great location with a really helpful and friendly owner!

  • 5 of 5

We found the flat to be so much nicer than it looked in the pictures. It is a well sized one bed flat. The 'put you up beds' were really comfortable. The kitchen/lounge were well sized. The kitchen is well appointed. A good sized bathroom and bedroom.

One small point, the flat is not on the waterfront as I had presumed from the pictures, but it was very close by. Great places to eat, and LOTS to do in Cardiff. Can recommend the Custom's house as a place to eat. Tesco really is just at the bottom of the road if you want to eat in! All in all a great place to stay at a reasonable price for a couple or family.

Good location, simple, clean accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We love Penarth and this was a perfect place for us to have a long weekend. The accommodation had all we needed and was clean and comfortable. If we were staying longer we may have wanted a few more cooking pans and a second pillow would be good (fussy sleeper!). Excellent places to eat nearby in Penarth and the walk in to Cardiff Bay across the barrage is lovely. Lots of safe parking but we didn't use the car, walked in to Penarth and in to Cardiff. We will definitely be back for more.

Nice flat, comfortable and clean and handy to get into the city

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two nights in Pat’s flat with our son. It was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed.

It’s an easy walk to Cogan station to get into town which is much better than driving and trying to find somewhere to park on a busy weekend!

I had a few questions I needed to ask Pat and I got replies quickly.

We’d definitely stay again!

Brilliant location, very clean and comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is in a lovely location, close proximity to the marina and lovely walk to the Barrage. A very short drive to Cardiff Bay and Tesco very close too. Apartment was very clean and well kept. Only negative to note is that there were no cooking pans, no frying pan etc, (we like a cooked breakfast when we are away!) but oven was good and a microwave and toaster. Would recommend the apartment, sofa beds were good too plenty of room for 5 people.
