Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Cardiff

The capital city of Wales is a fascinating place to explore by foot, with incredible history and culture to discover. On the doorstep of your holiday cottage in Cardiff, the city centre is packed with many of the country’s best places to eat and drink and an exceptional variety of independent shops to peruse. Wandering through the ancient streets, you will notice the magnificent architecture, such as the castle located right in the city centre, with extravagantly restored interiors. Next to Cathays Park, the city’s museum houses remarkable collections of natural history and art. Look out for the woolly mammoth and the dinosaur skeletons. Self-catering holidays in Cardiff would be incomplete without visiting the Millennium Centre, one of the city’s newer landmarks, with loads of events and exhibitions. Castell Goch is another must-see, a fairytale-like castle outside the city centre. The countryside surrounding the city is spectacular, with many footpaths to explore, including the Taff Trail, which leads into the wild scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
