Amazing location, beautiful accommodations. Extremely comfortable and welcoming
Beautifully appointed, and extremely clean and welcoming! Close to everything in the town center, excellent off-road parking, very easy to get to.
Thanks for being great guests and looking after the house, and glad you enjoyed the Castle and town.
Comfortable, cozy cottage close to all amenities.
Just returned from a very comfortable stay in this cottage which is so convenient for exploring the area. We were without a car for a couple of days but the town and the station are easily reached on foot. A visit to the Castle is a must.
There is just about everything in the cottage that you could wish for but it would be nice to have somewhere downstairs to hang coats - maybe in the cloakroom so they are hidden away.
A door on the front bedroom would have been a plus as the walk-in shower was much the better of the two and would mean it could be used without disturbing others. However, we were a family so this wasn't really a great problem.
Comfortable beds, fully fitted kitchen and welcome basket was very much appreciated.
Lovely little garden, a proper suntrap and great for drying the clothes. I did water the plants when the weather turned hot.
Great location but...
We loved the location which was walking distance to the Caerphilly Castle and surrounding area. The house is clean and carpets fresh, but had several issues. The vinyl sheeting on the kitchen floor does not lay flat and can be a tripping hazard. There is a leak issue in one of the upstairs showers and the water runs down the wall into the hallway on the entry level (I did report this to David (sent a picture) as we were very concerned and he never responded back so we just didn’t use that shower again). The water pressure in the other shower is extremely low and difficult to use, and also leaks out onto the floor. Currently the home looks very inviting with almost every surface either covered in some form of vinyl or a fresh coat of paint - but we fear there could be issues in the walls in the future if bathroom issues aren’t corrected.
It was a lovely experience for our family. The cottage was in an impeccable state and most welcoming
The cottage is very close to the city centre with MOrrisons only 5 mins away on foot. It was immaculately clean and very welcoming with fresh milk in fridge, tea and fruit. The was our first experience staying in a cottage and my young daughters loved it. It is truly home away from home. We recommend it fully.
We are glad you enjoyed the house and Caerphilly & around. We hope to welcome you again. Best wishes David and Wendy
Very nice, comfortable and spacious house!
We loved this very spacious and comfortable house. Ideal also for a holiday with little kids. Our four-year-old enjoyed running around the place and hiding her toys everywhere. There were even a few books for her to read. There is also a nice backyard which we unfortunately couldn't use because the weather was a little too cold. We also very much appreciated our welcome care package of fruit, milk and cookies :-)) Thank you David and Wendy!
We also found the location of the house ideal - 10 minutes from the train and bus station, around the corner from a big supermarket and five minutes from the town center. The perfect place to explore Caerphilly and its surroundings! (Cardiff is only a 15 minute train ride away.)
We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and your trips to St Fagans, the seaside and lots of other places. Thanks for leaving the house in perfect order. Hope to welcome you again. Best Wishes, David and Wendy
