Set on Amesbury RD in Penylan, Cardiff, is this charming Victorian family home, which is being offered on the Airbnb platform. It has 3 bedrooms, that will comfortably sleep a family of six /party of six and has some superb facilities.

Upon entering this beautiful house, you’re greeted with a sensational period tiled floor, which is enhanced by the clean white walls. You then have a splendid sitting room, with a heart warming alluring charm to it. Ideal for everyone to have a chat, about what they’ve been up-to, in Cardiff or the rest of Wales.

You then proceed, to a incredible open plan kitchen, that incorporates a comfortable seating area and breakfast bar. It’s a superb space and is fantastic for relaxing with your family or friends, before engaging in some of Cardiff’s, or the rest of Wales’, exciting attractions. You then lead through French doors, to a colourful court-yard, that has two seating areas, for your whole party. It’s ideal for those summer days or evenings, in Cardiff.

Upstairs has a spacious and airy master suite, that has plenty of natural light flooding in. It’s equipped with a roomy wardrobe, for storing your clothes and travel essentials. Furthermore it has two smaller bedrooms, that can accommodate two adults or two children, quite comfortably.

The local Roath area has some superb food and drink offerings and here a a few recommendation’s, which are extremely popular in the area and can’t be faulted, in our opinion. The exquisite ‘Cameo Club’ offers a variety of local and international cuisines and is has a really sophisticated feel to it. The rear courtyard is beautiful and is ideal for dining “Al Fresco” in summer months.

Another recommendation of ours would be the hip cafe/bar ‘Juno Lounge’. It has a more casual menu for diners that want a chilled out experience. Don’t miss their delightful roof terrace, which is a real sun-trap, all year round.

If you’re looking for a coffee and a light bite, then look no further than ‘Coffee# 1’ again situated in the affluent ‘Wellfield RD’.

Another must visit spot is the famous Roath Park.

Roath Park, opened in 1894, is Cardiff’s most popular public park and still retains its classic Victorian atmosphere and layout.
