The space

Bright and airy room, with a double bed and space in wardrobe. Next to shared guest shower room inc lavatory and bidet.

Free Wifi

Downstairs: use of front lounge with huge sofa and (on chilly evenings) wood burning stove. We provide a simple 'serve yourself' breakfast of fresh coffee, toast & cereal in large open plan kitchen. We do not allow guests to cook for themselves - there are plenty of gorgeous cafes and restaurants in the area. Kitchen for breakfast only.

The neighbourhood is surburban with many small shops and restaurants located within a few minutes' walk of the house, including Chapter Art Centre. It is also close to Llandaff Fields, a park which has the Taff Trail cycle route enabling easy access to the city, the Bay and in the other direction…the hills. It is possible to hire bikes from The Bike Shed, a few minutes walk away, so if you're up for cycling, no dragging your bike with you....

The road is mainly residential parking. We have a guest parking permit, so if you are bringing your car, make sure you grab the permit....

It is a fantastic and easy place to stay if you plan to visit Cardiff.

Major local attractions include Cardiff Castle, Cardiff Museum, St Fagan's Museum of Welsh Life and of course the Millennium Stadium and the Millennium Centre Opera House.

Local transport is excellent, with buses to and from the city centre every 10 minutes. Central train station and national coach station approx 10 minutes away by taxi.

The house offers a unique opportunity to enjoy all Cardiff has to offer, combined with a more laid-back lifestyle in a beautiful and quirky Victorian house.

This is a lovely house, we regularly book Ali's rooms for our visiting artists at Chapter Arts Centre, and they always have a wonderful time. This time was no exception- Ali is so friendly and hospitable, and always has great tips of this to see and do in the area. We couldn't recommend her place highly enough!

Even before getting to Cardiff, Ali has been already taking care of every little detail to make sure our weekend was perfect. She provided tips about transport, places and directions to get there. Ali and Tim waited and welcomed us with a glass of wine once we arrived. Great host and company. Very considerate and thoughtful. Highly recommend if you are looking for a warm, authentic and relaxed stay. House very clean with superb design and excellent facilities. Delicious breakfast.

We had a great stay. The place is just a short walk from the town center and there are several shops close by. Ali and Tim are great. They made us feel really welcome, it was nice talking to them and they had some great suggestions of things to do in Cardiff. The room is really nice and comfortable. All in all we had a lovely time and recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Cardiff.

Ali and Tim were exceptional hosts from the moment I knocked on their front door. They are warm, genuine and lovely people who are extremely knowledgeable about their local area and willing to help in anyway possible. The room was large. spacious and light-filled. I loved being able to make a cup of tea in the morning in my room and the breakfast that was included was delicious. Nothing was an imposition and Ali and Tim were always fun to have a chat with. The location is also wonderful whether you are going sightseeing in Cardiff or going to the rugby as I did. Compared to the centre of town it is delightfully peaceful and relaxing yet incredibly close to the centre. It's a short walk into town (approx 10-15 minutes) but the public transport is also frequent and quite affordable. There are some great local coffee shops and restaurants too. Additionally. Ali was really helpful in providing hints and tips for exploring Cardiff if you need the help, like I did. I'll definitely be heading back to Ali's place the next time I go to Cardiff. It was great!
