Check In
We had the perfect stay at Sophie's. The house is easily accessed from Cardiff and there's free parking just outside. It's also well contacted by train and bus. The room is spacious, very comfortable and well equipped. Beautiful views too! Sophie made us a really nice breakfast and even bought us some Portuguese tarts - pasteis de nata <3 Felt just like home

Astonishing bedroom, very bright day time and absolutely dark over night! Private bathroom with an amazing shower and floor heating, cleanliness is impeccable. Sophie is always around if you need help, she also provides you maps, water and breakfast. Neighborhood is quiet and extremely green. If you drive, don't worry there is parking space right in front of the house. All the family is friendly too.
