The Space

For families of 4, or 2 couples travelling together there is also a spacious double room (listed Double & Twin in Rural Wenvoe')that must be booked in conjunction with this twin-bedded room as it involves sharing the ensuite bathroom.

This listing offers a twin-bedded room with a semi-rural outlook. Ensuite bathroom (with shower above bath) comfortable armchair, TV and Wi-fi. Some wardrobe hanging/drawer space available. Tea/coffee included. Breakfast available if required at a reasonable price. We do not normally allow guests the use of the kitchen.

The City centre and the vibrant Cardiff Bay are a 30 min bus ride away. The Cardiff City stadium is only a 15 minute bus ride away. Bus stop is a less than a minute’s walk and buses run every half hour.

Wenvoe is a quiet village in a rural setting on the outskirts of Cardiff. There is a village shop, a pub and a church, as well as an out of town shopping complex just a mile away with a large Tesco, M&S, TK Max, as well as a McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and a renowned restaurant in the Copthorne Hotel. Wenvoe is also within easy reach of the S Wales coast at Barry and Penarth and is well located to explore the beautiful Vale or Glamorgan. There are many beautiful country walks from the village and further afield. We are close to the National Museum of Wales at St Fagans and Cardiff Wales Airport is approx 7 miles away. Off road car parking available for several cars. For airport users we offer parking for £15 per week or £2.50 per night.

  • Thanks Llinos and Rick for your hospitality! Great hosts and very welcoming. The house was easy to find from the bus stop and the room was clean, quiet and comfortable (including the beds) - nice to have en suite facilities.

  • My friend and I had a great experience staying with Mr. & Mrs. Metcalf. The house was easy to find, clean, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this B&B to someone looking for accommodations close to Cardiff.

  • Airy and clean room and llinos is a friendly host.

    The location is great for Cardiff, although we didnt take them, the bus runs into the centre.

    Great for any events at the Millenium Stadium when the prices in the centre of town go crazy!

  • I had a great stay at Llinos' house when I needed a bed for the night after an evening flight. It's a quick 10 mins bus ride from the airport (buses run every 20 mins every day), and I'd left my car by the house so could continue my journey the next day. Comfortable bed, clean room with ensuite. Friendly and welcoming hosts.

  • Only a very short stopover to catch early flight from Cardiff Airport. Extremely convenient location. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. I was made to feel very welcome.

    Response from Llinos:

    Thank you for your kind words. I'm sorry but I've tried leaving you a review but I seem to have left it too late. Things have been rather hectic since your stay - my 81 yr old mother was admitted to hospital with complications following major spine surgery so a lot of things, including your review ended up on the back burner I'm afraid. As a matter of information we now offer overnight parking for airport users for £15 a week or £2.50 per night. An airport shuttle bus runs from the city centre every 20 mins and will pick up and drop off in Wenvoe. I hope all goes well with the trying to sell your B&B, kind regards Llinos

    Des hôtes très agréables. Facile d'accès par le bus du centre de Cardiff. Jolie maison avec une grande chambre et une salle de bain privative
    Llinos et Rick nous ont donné de très bons conseils pour visiter Cardiff

  • Very welcoming hosts. Golden retriever is respectfully friendly. Room was great; comfy armchair to curl up in, and en-suite was a bonus. Thank you, especially at such short notice. Would like to come back.

  • Great cozy home which isn't too far from the city centre yet far enough to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside.

    Great hosts and accommodation.

  • Accommodation was just the job. Comfortable room with TV and arm chair. En suite bathroom. Very convenient to Cardiff for work of leisure. Welcoming and friendly host. I was staying while on business and they had no issues with me arriving quite late and leaving early.

  • Perfect hosts, as someone wrote here before, natural hosts. Very warm, always happy to help and always with a smile. rick & Llinos Metcalf are simply wonderful people. The house itself was a bit messy but our room and shower were clean and of high standard. Although it was not included in the deal rick offered us a simple breakfast. They have a cute and friendly dog. We did their laundry and the dryer works fine :) On leaving Llinos took us to the city and making sure we get to our bus in time.

We are a semi-retired couple with children away at university. We’re always looking for good value accommodation when we travel and endeavour to provide this with the two rooms available to rent in our home. We have an extremely friendly and very welcoming Golden Retriever dog.
