Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Holiday Cottages

Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan can provide you with everything you need while you explore the fascinating villages, country gardens, castles and beaches in the area. There are plenty of exciting tourist activities on offer in this area of Wales as well as well-known tourist... attractions, so if you’re looking for adventure or relaxation the choice is all yours.

Visitors to Wales’ capital city cannot fail to notice the buzz and energy that fills this amazing place. From the incredible Principality Stadium to the awesome museums and attractions, there is so much to see and do in Cardiff and the surrounding area that a city break just isn’t long enough to fit everything in!

The Principality Stadium should be on the sightseeing list for everyone who visits Cardiff, and a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium is a great way to spend an afternoon, perhaps then moving on to take in a show at the Wales Millennium Centre in the evening.

Right in the centre of the city, Cardiff Castle is unmissable, and a tour of this amazing and opulent place will be a highlight of any visit to the city. Other top visitor attractions include the National Museum, with world-class natural history exhibits and a strong programme of arts events, and St Fagans National Museum of History, where visitors can take a step back in time to learn about traditional Welsh ways of life, crafts and pastimes throughout various periods of history. As the most popular visitor attraction in Wales, St Fagans should be on everyone’s must-see list!

You’d be forgiven for thinking that a city-center break couldn’t offer much to the outdoor adventure enthusiast, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Cardiff International White Water (CIWW) is a purpose-built facility in the heart of the city, offering on-demand white water rafting and canoeing, along with rope walking above the Whitewater course, zip wire rides and even body boarding on an indoor wave simulator. With trained instructors on hand, it’s the perfect venue to try out these exciting activities for the first time or to hone your skills and learn new techniques.

The area around Cardiff has plenty to tempt visitors too. Barry Island, made famous, or infamous, by the Gavin and Stacey TV series, and now known locally as Barrybados, actually makes for a fun day out, whilst a little further into the Vale of Glamorgan, Cowbridge is a charming market town filled with independent shops and excellent restaurants. It’s well worth exploring, especially when the thriving farmers’ market is taking place.

When it comes to eating out, Cardiff and the surrounding area is having something of a boom right now, with many local restaurants winning national awards. For an upmarket fine dining experience, head to Bully’s in Cardiff or Restaurant James Sommerin, in nearby Penarth. If you’d prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, The Classroom is an excellent choice, whilst The Clink is an altogether unique experience, located as it is inside Cardiff Prison, and staffed by prisoners who are working towards qualifications in food preparation and hospitality.

We’ve only scratched the surface of what this vibrant city has to offer, and as we said earlier, a short city break in Cardiff holiday cottages or apartments may not be long enough to sample all of Cardiff’s delights. With accommodation options ranging from luxury apartments on the waterfront to country cottages on the outskirts of town, a holiday in Cardiff is likely to be a big hit with the whole family.
