This is a large, light room in a very roomy townhouse in a great part of town. It's on the first floor at the rear of the house with a comfortable double bed, a sofa, a desk, a wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The space

This is a large five bedroomed town house that sits in a cool part of Cardiff, near excellent and extensive parkland, a short walk to cafes, bars and a thriving arts centre with easy access into the city centre, Llandaff village and roads leading out into Wales. It's quiet and safe with easy on road parking.

I'm a pretty social animal so feel free to use the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up the odd meal. There is also a large living room (with a wood burning stove when it's cold) and a quiet rear courtyard garden. There's secure parking for bikes and easy on road parking.

I know the city the hinterland and Wales very well and I'm very happy to advise on the best things to do and how best to do them!

There is a lovely old dog here called Ziggy, a german wire haired pointer. She can be a bit barky when the there's a knock on the door. She thinks that's her job!

Guest access

Jeremy was welcoming, easy to contact, and supportive. The place was fantastic. I wish my time in Cardiff were longer and hope to come back in years to come.

The house is in a great location. Easy explore Llandaff, get to the city center by bus or on foot through the park. Jeremy was an excellent and thoughtful host.

Jeremy's place was wonderful to visit! It is located in a terrific neighborhood with lots of friendly locals. Beautiful parks to meander through as you make your way to the city center. We would stay again if in the area.

Jeremy was so easy - he even left the key out for me due to my late arrival (3 am), and made sure all was set for my self-check in. His kitchen is amazing, there were lots of other interesting people in the house and I'll always remember the wood stacking book! He has an amazing collection of cook books, too. If you get cold feet: remember your slippers!

I was backpacking to Cardiff so was looking for somewhere that could safely store my bike and be near enough to the centre of the city, with a good shower and a big comfy bed. Was very satisfied with the last two, and Jeremy was good enough to let me store my bike in the house. Jeremy is a very friendly and welcoming host and I would recommend staying here to anyone!

OK, about me!

I'm a mostly retired BBC journalist and producer who now finds himself rattling around in an oversized five bedroomed home with the excellent and wise Ziggy, a German wire-haired pointer.

I have three children who visit often, especially my troubadour son, as does my English lecturer partner Lisa, more often than not tugged here by her petite boxer Rosie.

I've lived and worked in Cardiff most of my adult life, though I'm from the coal mining Valleys originally, so I know the city and its hinterland intimately and I’d be happy to advise on what to see, where to eat, drink, be merry. I can also suggest trips and itineraries to a wider Wales.

I've travelled and worked on most continents now, but Cardiff is home. It's a great town, I think, not too big, not too small, with wonderful green space at its heart, not much crime, close to mountains and sea. I find there’s plenty to do when I'm not tramping the hills, walking the hound, tending the dread allotment, reading, listening to music, cooking or, occasionally, just staring into the log fire. Oh, and drinking beer…

… and, I nearly forgot, doing bits and pieces on the house. This place isn’t a show home or a museum (you’ll find two really good ones elsewhere in the city), but it's clean, roomy and comfortable and warm. I should say there's only one bathroom and it's got a great shower, but there is another toilet with a washbasin. There's always stuff to do, but I'm nearly there.
