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. 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. Can accommodate a 'transit' type van.

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.

For cultural pursuits Cardiff (home of Welsh National Opera) is hard to beat with international standard performance venues plus Royal College of Music and Drama with their fantastic new performance spaces. The National Museum of Wales has several sites including St Fagin's where entire buildings of historic significance have been relocated from all over Wales to a purpose designed park. There is a major collection of French Impressionist art based in Cardiff at the National Museum.
