Cut the Commute: Stay in Taffs Well

House - Private room · Glan y Ffordd, Cardiff, Cardiff CF15 7SP, United Kingdom

The Space

I am only 2.5miles from Junction 32 (Coryton) M4 and even closer to the A470. Need a short break from the daily commute? OR travelling a long distance for a meeting? Get rested the night before in Taffs Well. I'm on a direct road/rail link into Cardiff Centre.

The house is situated in a cul de sac with no passing traffic, double glazing and considerate neighbours; a good nights sleep is the norm around here.

The room has a single bed and hygienically protected mattress. A simple laptop is provided linked to a printer and WIRELESS INTERNET PROVIDED FREE. The area has 3G coverage. The bathroom is shared and there is a shower available. Laundry facilities are available; no tumble dryer but I can normally dry off clothing over night using a dehumidifier.

I am happy to provide a simple breakfast of cereals/porridge/toast/tea/coffee at no extra cost. If you are happy to join me for other meals we can agree on cost as appropriate.

I can advise you on a sightseeing itinerary, but you will need to be clear about your interests. I may be able to drive you to see specific sights, but you would have to contribute to fuel costs.

Otherwise I am happy to leave you to your own plans.

As I am working I will usually require people to be out of the house by the time I leave for work (0830hrs). I can then collect you you from a prearranged meeting place around 1630hrs.

Taffs Well is a small village with a good grocery store and an atmospheric pub serving food and real ales. Nearby there is an entertainment park featuring some well known eateries as well as a multiplex cinema.

There is parking for two cars on a hardstanding at the front of the house.

There is a commuter railway line which runs north to Merthyr and south to Cardiff Central; for all connections. this is a 'park and ride' railway station.

Buses run regularly to Cardiff and north to Merthyr and Brecon Beacons.

Attractions
Great centre for history; Caerphilly Castle (2nd largest castle in Europe), National Museum of Wales at St Fagan's. Cardiff Bay; Dr Who Experience. Wales Millenium Centre.

Outdoor Activities
Mountain biking; Parc Afon near Neath/Port Talbot is a purpose designed mountain bike area with colour coded trails. The Forest of Dean is only 30 odd miles away for a great day out for walking or biking.

Brecon Beacons; a great walking area with spectacular views, some challenging terrain or easier walks. I am happy to take you on guided walks in the Brecon Beacons.

The Taff Trail runs within 50 yards of the house and offers a scenic walk into Cardiff (approx. 8 miles) or north all the way to Brecon (approx. 20 miles).

Water Sports; Cardiff Bay boasts water sport activities organised by private companies as well as Cardiff Council.

The Bristol Channel boasts the second highest tidal range in the World. So check on tide times if you wish enjoy a visit to the sea shore. I am a member of a local sailing club, so I may be able to offer some dinghy sailing; weather/tide dependant. The Wales Coast Path also offers beautiful walks.

  • A great place to stay, very comfortable with all the facilities you need. Easy to find and driveway parking makes it hassle free.
    Nick is a great host and made me feel very welcome in his home, not to mention Amy the cat, who plays a mean game of chase the laser dot, if you're up to the challenge!
    Highly recommend, many thanks.

About
I am a single guy working in the National Health Service as a specialist nurse. I am a keen allotment gardner growing veg with a work colleague on our allotment, which is a 10 minute walk away from the house. I am an avid sailor and tend to spend most weekends on my 11 foot dinghy cruising the Bristol Channel. I also enjoy skiing and have visited the USA, Canada and Europe to ski. I do not eat meat but fish is great, which I believe makes me a pescatarian. I am prettty relaxed and open minded enjoying an eclectic taste in music and film.
