About the Homestay
I live with my husband in a 4 bedroomed maisonette which has a veranda over looking the old harbour and a beach. The property is 10 minutes, by car, from Cardiff International Airport. It is two minutes walk from a bus stop and five minutes walk from the local railway station. It is 15 minutes by train into central Cardiff.
Barry Island, on which there is an amusement park and another beach, is a 10 minute walk.
We can, by prior arrangement, collect from and drop off, to the airport.

The harbour is tidal, on the edge of the Bristol Channel, and has boat wrecks which can be approached when the tide is out.
Barry Island is ten minutes away with a beach, an amusement park, cafes and restaurants.
The local shopping centre is ten minutes walk away and caters to all tastes. Barry town centre is a further ten minutes away

What a delightful, charming, helpful, genuine and kind couple Agnes and Ian are. We left with large smiles on our faces because we had an amazing weekend in Cardiff and Agnes and Ian were the proverbial cherry on the cake.
I enjoyed my stay with Agnes .A very lovely host.Nothing is too much trouble. We will stay in touch
Very hospitable, clean, convenient, very helpful, great place, great people.
we stayed with agnus and ian for 3 days.. really lovely people very welcoming and couldnt do enough to make us welcome and comfortable.. lovely clean home. had a great time during our stay. we will defo be staying with them again when we down that area again..
The host is very accommodating and good but there should be attached washrooms.
Agnes was very helpful and kind. When we arrived, she offered us tea and a snack. There room was spacious...and the bedside pitcher of water and glasses, very pretty. During breakfast we had a lovely chat. Thank you for making us feel welcome!
Absolutely nice host!! Agnes was so kind and sweet with us. Her house is clean and very tipical of England. It's 2 minutes walk from the stop to Cardiff Centre. I would recommend it.
Agnes and her husband Ian are very friendly hosts. Agnes provides a light breakfast of cereal and toast taken at the table in her family kitchen. She sat and chatted with us at breakfast and really made us feel at home. I understand the double room we rented is due to be decorated and will be a welcome improvement but I must say the bed was amazingly comfortable so we had a great night's sleep. Take a lightweight dressing gown as the loo and separate bathroom are down two flights of stairs. Would definitely stay with her again. Such a lovely lady!
We have never had such a warm and engaging welcome. The customer service was first class and absolutely genuine. Thanks Agnes, it was a real pleasure.
