About The Owner

Our family have lived at the property since 1986 and the main farmhouse was built in 1826. There is a coach house built in 1840 and the cabin was added in 2010 for family accommodation. We have rented the cabin since June 2017 with family having moved further afield.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose Cardiff

In a beautiful location in the country yet really close to beaches and City Centre shopping. Set in 3.5 acres of land laid mainly to gardens and orchard with views over surrounding countryside and further out over the Bristol Channel. This area gives you everything a city, beautiful coastline and beaches, marinas and waterside dining and the Welsh countryside.

What makes this cabin unique

The views from the deck are breath taking, bringing the country indoors.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have wished for a more enjoyable stay. Children (7 and 5) didn't want to leave, with lots of space for them to play and ride their bikes safely where we can see them. Accommodation had absolutely everything we needed and stunning view. Nigel and Linda were wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble and very welcoming. Location is brilliant, close to Cardiff but quiet and peaceful to relax. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic base

  • 4 of 5

The Woodland Retreat was perfect for our visit to Cardiff being beautifully quiet and relaxing whilst close to the city. The cabin was comfortable and Linda and Nigel welcomed us and looked after us very well.Their two pet/guard dogs were quite noisy at times but that didn't really bother us as we are all dog lovers.

Some more local information in the cabin would have been useful, e.g.bus and train timetable, park and ride info., local takeaway menus.

We would definetely recommend the property to anyone else.

Excellent accommodation just a 10 minute drive from Cardiff. Secluded, quite rural location. Wonderful views from the decking area. The cabin has everything you need. Excellent communication from the owners before and during our visit. Highly recommended.
