About this listing
Our attic, which can easily accommodate two adults, is located in a tastefully decorated house in a quiet yet very close area to Cardiff centre, ideal to explore the city. Pol & Gwenno speak six languages between them.
The attic room is a really bright and light filled space, it is quite large with ample room to relax. It has a comfortable bed which has an additional single bed below which can then accommodate a couple. You can see the Millenium Stadium out of the window as well as the trees of Pontcanna. The stairs to the attic are slightly on the steep side, and there is no separate door to close off the room, however there is a curtain and because it is an attic, it feels very much like a private room.
Guests will be sharing the new shower room which also contains the toilet. We have a separate sitting room which they may wish to use in the evening. We do have private areas in the house which will be pointed out to guests. Guests can use the kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
We love to travel and meet other travelers and Gwenno especially likes to communicate and practice her languages (Welsh, English, Flemish, French and a little bit of Spanish) Pol also speaks Flemish, English, French and a little bit of German. We can also arrange either cycle tours or bike hires through Pol's company Cardiff Bike Tours.
Yes we will be interacting with the guests who will be staying in our home. We intend to be there most of the time as we both have offices in our home.
It's very convenient to the center of town. We have Chapter Arts Center around the corner which has a huge range of cultural activities. There are some cute shops in the vicinity and a truly cosmopolitan selection of places to eat within half a mile walking distance. We have fabulous neighbours and there is a real sense of community in our street. I love living there. I can get out on to the river for a run within five minutes and the park is truly lovely and again within walking distance.
You can catch a bus into the center to town at the end of the road for £1 or you can walk into town along the river Taff and through the beautiful castle grounds. Parking directly outside the house can sometimes be problematic but we have a visitors parking permit. We are a five minute taxi ride from Cardiff train and bus station.
Other Things to Note
We both love music. Pol plays the saxophone and Gwenno sings with a choir and also as a soloist. She does a one woman Tribute show about Edith Piaf. Book a bike from Pol and you will be able to get out and about with no problem. (website hidden)
It is a smoke free house but you are welcome to smoke outside in the garden should you need to. We do not allow pets. We like to have a chat with our guest and make them feel welcome.
Great 2nd stay here. It's a lovely house in a nice area. Pol was very accommodating and generous.
This was a fine place to stay, and Gwenno and Pol were extremely helpful and friendly as I spent my first days in Cardiff. I would recommend them to anyone. The room was spacious for one person and being alone on the top floor gave a good feeling of privacy.
The attic room is clean and spacious with cozy atmosphere and has a comfortable bed and a sofa. Breakfast was decent. Gwenno's family made me feel comfortable in the house, and it's always good to feel healthy, happy vibes in the house you visit.
It is close to Chapter art center (which I really enjoyed visiting) and easy to approach from Sophia garden/Bute park. I strongly recommend Gwenno and Pol's attic room if you are visiting Cardiff.
Vi havde et dejligt ophold hos Gwenno og Pol på deres loft, Pol gav os gode råd angående vores tur til Brecon Beacons Nationalpark.
Just so nice, in fact the photo does not do justice. Tasteful imaginative room, just what you want from Airbnb, easy to find though wet dark nights make house numbering interesting! Kind hospitable, interesting people. Thanks our stay was great.
Are host were very welcoming and very helpful. The room was nice and cosy. Location was great as only a 20min walk to the town center. Would recommend to stay here as host very nice and were really helpful.
We spent a pleasant two nights here while attending a wedding in Cardiff. Pol was very welcoming and helpful. The room itself is lovely and very private.
A short walk into town - would stay here again! Thank you!
