Cardiff, Southern Wales, Wales
My lovely 100 year old cottage is close to central Cardiff & stadium, available for short term rentals (minimum 3 nights) situated in Llandaff, Cardiff . The cottage is unusual as it is close to the city centre but in a semi rural location, so you get the best of both worlds in this home from home. Prices reduced through spring 2018.

The house is very good value for money. It is fully furnished in a cottage style with modern self catering facilities, two double bedrooms, bathroom with electric shower over bath, comfy lounge with TV+DVD, open plan kitchen and dining room, garden and private offroad parking. [Use of the fold out single bed in the lounge for a fifth guest will incur a small additional nightly charge, pay on arrival. Additional bedding available.] All bedding and towels are provided.

The cottage is close to all ameni...

Cosy cottage in a rural setting but still so close to central Cardiff. We where delighted to arrive to a pretty Christmas tree, decorations around the fireplace, Christmas cards & mince pies Totally unexpected but made our pre-Christmas visit to family and friends in Wales just that little bit more special. Well done Helen a lovely little cottage.

Management response:

Hello Dawn, Thank you for your lovely review of the cottage and hope you come back and stay again. Happy 2018 Best wishes, Helen

4 of us stayed here over new year. The cottage is lovely and well equipped. We didn’t need to take some of the stuff we did as it’s well prepared. It’s very quiet and convenient as we got a short taxi ride into the city which was reasonably priced. The bedrooms are very spacious as was the bathroom. The kitchen...
