Overview

About the property

Cottage in Cardiff, 6 miles from city centre - ideally situated for M4

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.

Beautifully appointed cosy cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two daughters and I stayed for four nights between Christmas and the New Year.

The cottage is in a lovely rural location, but is within quick driving distance of some very good local supermarkets, restaurants and cardiff city centre.

Wendy is very friendly and welcoming and the cottage is very cosy and inviting.

The accommodation is spacious and Wendy has done a lovely job with the fixtures and fittings.

We all throughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

Brilliant - a home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is fantastic - it is in a country setting but also very close to Cardiff with many options for getting to the city centre.

Wendy and Ian have made a beautiful home where you won’t want for anything. Sadly we were only there 3 nights, however would have stayed longer if we could. The cottage is also close to many attractions such as St Fagans, Cardiff city centre, Caerphilly Castle, Penarth, the Vale of Glamorgan to name a few.

The cottage is beautifully furnished, comfortable, has a lovely outlook over fields and our hosts could not have been more hospitable.

Will definitely return if we are ever back in Wales.

Owner's Response: Really pleased you enjoyed your time in Wales, you certainly made the most of all the sights locally. Shame you didn't have much time to relax and enjoy the cottage a little more. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back however, appreciate Australia is not round the corner!!! Thank you for your review.

Superb Property!

Luxury property in a peaceful setting. A short distance by car to Cardiff and Cardiff Bay. Park and Ride to Cardiff City Centre and Tesco and Marks and Spencer superstores only a couple of miles away.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay, love the idea of visiting all 42 Cathedrals. Hope you had a good onward journey, perhaps we will meet again if you decide to visit castles, possibly a challenge too far! Wendy
