About the neighbourhood
Taffs Well is an excellent base for your holiday with great facilities and places of interest both locally and further afield. The beautiful, romantic fairytale castle Castell Coch is practically on the doorstep and we're just a few miles away from Cardiff City centre which offers excellent shopping, theatres, museum, vibrant night-life, Wales Millennium Stadium and of course the historic Cardiff Castle and impressive Civic Centre.

Just a few miles drive or a short train ride away are the seaside towns of Barry (of Gavin & Stacey fame!), Penarth and Porthcawl with beaches, amusements and restaurants and Cardiff Bay which boasts a diverse range of excellent waterside restaurants, Multiplex cinema and bowling and the Millennium Centre, home to the world class Welsh National Opera....
Getting around
Trains - run from Taff's Well every 10 minutes or so at peak times into Cardiff, and take about 15 minutes. Last train back is about 23.25 (Mon-Sat).

Buses - two buses pass the house into Cardiff the 26 and 132. It takes about half an hour to get into town.

Road - we are close (7 minutes drive), but far enough away, from the M4, which gives you access for routes to and from London and West Wales.
