About the Area
My house is located in the town centre conveniently close to the train/bus station and within a short walk to the many shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and the castle. Caerphilly castle built in the late 13 century, is situated in the town centre and is one of the great medieval castle of western Europe and the 2nd largest in Britain
after Windsor castle. The town is just 9 miles outside Cardiff, the capital of Wales,
and 15 mins on the train. Caerphilly is a lovely friendly town and the house so conveniently based to explore further afield the history and natural beauty of
South Wales. Parking is not a problem as there is a large car park just over the road next to train station and street parking at the house.

We arrived and was met by Cheryl, she is very friendly and welcoming. We were shown around and left to our own devices. The room was lovely really nice size and was a welcome break after the 4 hour drive and a rest before the concert. Fantastic location 2 min walk to Caerphilly castle. We will be back and would definitely stay with Cheryl again. We throughly recommend Cheryl.
Very friendly people
