Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Cardiff - Superbly Located Bay Apartment

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

A Stunning waterfront apartment overlooking Cardiff Bay and within 2 minutes walk of Mermaid Quay and all the best restaurants in town. This apartment is located directly adjacent to the 5 star St Davids Hotel and Spa, you can even do some star spotting on event weekends from the 15 Metre balcony which directly overlooks the hotel. Alternatively enjoy a meal in the vast array of restaurants or visit the Millennium Stadium, home of Welsh Rugby and host of numerous world class events. Take a boat trip around the Bay into city centre and meander through the multitude of retail outlets. This apartment has it all, superbly fitted kitchen, lounge diner with large balcony leading off, superbly furnished throughout, just fetch your tooth brush and glad rags and enjoy at a fraction of the price of a hotel!! What is more I also offer a chauffeur service from all major UK airports directly to the apartment, for the same price as taking an inter city train ( for 4 people ).

Arround the immediate vicinity: If you fancy venturing outside Cardiff you will find excellent road links and many interesting places to visit and see such as Castell Coch, a romantic fantasy - a piece of Bavaria imported into the Cardiff valley. It clings dramatically to a hillside overlooking the Taff river. It is especially dramatic at night as you drive past Cardiff on the M4 and you see it illuminated above you. Also a must is Caerphilly Castle. This vast, 30-acre fortress is only equalled in size by Windsor Castle and dates back to the 13th Century, the oldest Norman Castle in the UK.

Also just outside Cardiff you can find the Museum of Welsh Life at St. Fagans. This open-air museum traces Wales's journey from rural tradition to industrial powerhouse, from the recreated Celtic village to the 21st century Home for the Future. Over 40 buildings have been transported to the museum, stone-by-stone, from all over Wales. Free admission.

Slightly further afield: If you want to experience our industrial heritage at first hand, warts and all, the valleys north of Cardiff are worth a visit. The valleys were created to house the miners whose coal powered the Industrial Revolution. Once one-third of the world's coal was produced here - it was the Kuwait of its day.

The valleys certainly aren't aesthetically beautiful in the traditional sense, and some areas are terribly deprived, but it is that untouched grittiness which creates the appeal. From the extraordinary Rhondda Valley in the west to Blaenavon in the east you will encounter a post-industrial environment unique in Britain.If you want to go down a real coal mine you'll have to go to Big Pit mining museum in the World Heritage Site of Blaenavon. This is no theme park - this is a real colliery which produced coal for 200 years. Kitted-out in helmet and cap-lamp, you descend in the lift for 300 metres to the real coalface with an ex-miner as your guide.

Merthyr Tydfil (Irontown): The Heads of the Valleys road (the A465) connects the north end of the valleys. The road passes through the unofficial 'capital of the valleys', Merthyr Tydfil. Merthyr played a vital role in Britain's industrial past: once it had the world's largest ironworks at Dowlais (very little remains), and Richard Trevithick created the world's first locomotive railway (all that's left is a tunnel, but there were centenary celebrations in 2004). The destruction of its industries has left Merthyr a depressed town with little to show of its former glory, the exception being Cyfarthfa Castle, another impressive 19th century castle with excellent museum set in pleasant parkland. The castle was built by the steel magnate William Crawshay who lived in luxury while his workers suffered. From here take the short trip to the Brecon Beacons an area of outstanding natural beauty, you may even decide to climb Penyfan, the highest point in Britain South of Snowdon and less than one hour drive away.

Modern homely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful break away in this beautiful apartment. Very homely and has everything you could possibly need including wifi and Sky tv.

Very thoughtful and kind gesture of leaving wine, chocolates, water, milk, croissants and yoghurts. Plenty of toiletries and kitchen utensils available. Great location with lots to do and great that you can park your car in car park. Would highly recommend this apartment and when staying in Cardiff again will choose this lovely homely apartment over a hotel. Thanks so much for letting us stay. The Trevor Family.

Welcoming and a Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Colin and Gaynor have always provided a very warm welcome. Not only is the apartment always clean, the fridge and sometimes freezer is stocked with some tasty treats so you can take a welcome break after your long drive. That is before venturing out to the local selection of restaurants, or a stroll through the nature reserve or along the bay front. Everything you can think of is provided in the way of white goods, seating (indoor and outdoor), and nice bathrooms with a choice of shower or bath, free wi-fi and sky tv. The only thing i could suggest that is missing is a means to play music in the apartment other than on the sky box radio (an aux connector would be good for ipods or smartphones to connect). Other than that the place is perfect and am already making inquiries about our next booking.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by our lovely host Gaynor to a beautiful and excellently located apartment. The apartment was decorated to a very high standard and it was lovely to have a few welcome treats for us to enjoy during our stay. Every aspect was first class and made for a very comfortable stay. We hope to be back soon. Many thanks Reg, Karen, Shirley and Tony.

FIRST CLASS APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent 7 nights in this fabulous apartment to celebrate a special birthday . Such a brilliant location for shops, restaurants and lots of good walks.

The apartment itself is spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and well equipped with everything you would need. Sky sports and wi fi included was a bonus for us. We felt very relaxed and at home there.

Thank you Colin and Gaynor for all the little extras too. We had a lovely time and hope to revisit in the future from Sandra and Bernie.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully clean well equipped 2nd floor apartment which has been decorated very tastefully. Comfortable beds and plenty of towels, soaps etc. in each bathroom. Good location with taxi rank in easy reach. Excellent covered secure parking. Colin and Gaynor were extremely easy to communicate with and made us feel very welcome on arrival. The fridge was stocked with some essentials and wine/chocolates (a lovely touch and much appreciated - thank you).
