About the Homestay
I'm Cindy, I live in a lovely home in a part of Cardiff called Penylan.
I'm very near Roath Park Lake where there is a beautiful rose garden, a boating lake and lots of wildlife.
The location is wonderful and central.
There are several bus routes nearby which will take you into the city centre, taking about 10-15 mins or of course you can walk, taking about 30-35 mins.
There is plenty to see in the city centre. Cardiff Castle is certainly worth a visit.
The bay is lovely and full of restaurants for foodies to check out!
The University Hospital of Wales is a 10 - 15 minute walk away or 3 minutes away by car.
The engineering campus on Newport road is 15 minutes away by bus, walkable in 30-40 minutes also.
Cardiff airport is 40 minutes away by car
Bristol airport is 1 hour away by car
Cardiff main Train station is in city centre - about 30 minutes away
The bus stop 5 mins away from the home
I have 4 extra bedrooms that I rent out, 1 being ensuite.
The kitchen is not available for cooking (making tea and coffee is fine)- however we do offer evening meals at an extra charge. light breakfasts is included in the price of the room, upon arrival let me know if you need anymore information.
I look forward to hearing from you!

One of the best homestays in Cardiff, very nice & welcoming. The rooms are very clean and stylish. Will visit again for sure.
Excellent stay and quite close to the ciy centre.
Friendly hosts and delicious cooking.
They were lovely, and helped in every way they could. It was amazing to stay there.
Very quite area of Cardiff. About a two and a half mile walk into town although there is a bus about every half hour. Parking was good and very good hosts. Spotlessly clean. Recommended.
Family very friendly and available for any help. House very clean and comfortable. My bedroom was very clean, aerated, comfortable and well-lit. Good breakfast. Good public service (bus) to go to the centre. House in a very quiet place with Cardiff view.
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Absolutely recommended. Excellent atmosphere, Cindy and David makes you feel at home, Cindy is an extraordinary cook and both are lovely.
A very positive experience, will repeat next year
