About the property

Cottage in Cardiff, Wales - ideally situated, close to Cardiff City

This is a modern cottage with a traditional twist. Perfectly situated for easy access to the M4 motorway. There are many local historic places of interest as well as being very close to the city centre and beaches. Exceptionally well presented, with excellent fixtures and fittings- a real home from home. Lovely private terrace where you can on a good day watch the wildlife. Ample parking for at least two cars right outside the front door. Electric gated entrance to driveway.

Why Wendy 078 66 55 55 89 chose Glamorgan

Although this property is next to our home, you would never know. The surroundings are peaceful, private yet close to city centre as well as many other attractions eg beaches, Cardiff Bay, Dr Who Experience, Dyffryn Gardens, and so much more all within less than ten miles.

What makes this cottage unique

We will provide transport free of charge into Cardiff for special events eg Football, and collect up to 12pm

Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband have just arrived home from our lovely holiday. We stayed near Cardiff which is a brilliant city. The property we stayed in was First Class and the owners Ian and Wendy are also First Class, very welcoming and friendly. All in all we have had a fantastic week with brilliant hot, sunny weather.......we couldn't have asked for more.

A wonderful cottage in beautiful setting. Just right for our mini break, with lovely warm welcome.

We have never stayed in such a well equipped cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Gorgeous cottage, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The owners are lovely and very welcoming and the cottage definitely has the wow factor. It is well equipped with everything we could possibly need and more!

We loved exploring the surrounding areas and having such a gorgeous cottage to come back to at the end of a busy day.

The location is ideal for travelling into Cardiff (20 minutes by car) with a local friendly pub and a restaurant within walking distance.

We were really sad to leave at the end of our holiday - hope to return soon.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best property we have ever stayed at, nothing has been left to chance in this lovely cottage. Wendy is very friendly and helpful and her local knowledge is very welcome. Everywhere is within a few minutes drive. We will without doubt be rebooking this delightful cottage again.

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic and the hospitality and welcome is truly beyond anywhere else I've experienced. I've holidayed in cottages, with the wife and family all over the UK for years, and this must be top of the list.

A very warm welcome from Wendy, and nothing any trouble during our stay. This is out second visit, we're already booked for the next trip, and we'll certainly be back again. A wonderful cottage, peaceful setting, and all the comforts we'd hope for.

Spacious, freshly aired, thoroughly clean, and well-appointed in every respect. I'd recommend it. And what a fantastic place Cardiff is, right on the doorstep with easy access from the cottage, minutes away to numerous attractions, cultural, sporting, historical, and shopping. Tidy.

Thanks Wendy, see you again soon.
