Large 2 bed, boutique self-catering apartment, 15 min walk to centre
Lived and travelled all over the world - we came back to Cardiff in 1999. The property has been lovingly restored back to it's Victorian style - along with many original features
Owner purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Owner chose Pontcanna
Simple - bigger than a B&B, less expensive (and larger) than any hotel suite you can find in Cardiff. Ground floor location - it also has access to it's own small court yard area - as well as garden. Also includes washing facilities, clothes line, ironing board etc - a home from home. The reaction we get from everyone is wow - I didn't think it would be so large. I also know Cardiff - where to go, what to see, how to get there and always happy to advise if you need anything. We are flexible with check in / out times - as long as there are no same day bookings.
What makes this Apartment unique
The location of Pontcanna cant be beaten. It's very close to the city centre - but small enough to feel like a village community. It is also the longest Victorian Road in the United Kingdom. All the houses on Cathedral Road are unique perfect examples of Victorian architecture. This property contains many original features, the high ceilings, the 2ft skirting boards, the opriginal terrazzo flooring - as well as the servants bell system (servants not included)

It was great
Everything was great, even better than expected. Thank you so much.
Lovely flat in a great location
We booked as it was close to the Stadium but as it turned out it was perfect for much more than that. The park is stunning and only a stones throw away. The flat was incredibly comfy and had everything we needed. Peter is a great host, responded to all requests really quickly and was very helpful when we arrived and was always a text/call away, he even arranged for the sunshine while we were there. I would recommend to anyone visiting Cardiff.
Great location and lodging. Friendly hosts with plenty of suggestions.
Good organization, clean house, peaceful to stay and warm welcome. Everything was just fine. We hope to come back next year !
Beautiful Victorian & Great Location
This listing was everything as advertised. It is a very clean and well maintained property withing walking proximity to everything in downtown Cardiff. The facilities were very good and perfect for my son who has severe food allergies- so we cooked all our own meals. The owner and his family were extremely nice, welcoming and helpful when we had questions about the city. I will be back and will highly recommend to friends and family.
Will be back
We are currently still staying at the apartment, waiting on our son to visit us. He is studying in lovely Cardiff , it is April - and the sun is extraordinarily hot.
This place is lovely, large, spacious , old Victorian type style with other more modern things as well.

We will be back the next we stay in Cardiff in the summer time
Some background info - http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/pontcanna-named-30-most-fashionable-8812232
Pontcanna was named in the Sunday Times newspaper they rated Pontcanna as one of the hippest neighbourhoods in the country because it is the “most well-heeled bit of Cardiff.”
The unique Victorian, tree lined, conservation area of Pontcanna set in the heart of Cardiff, is the London equivalent of Chelsea.
Built around 1895 these very large 3 storey houses were originally built for all the various sea captains and coal barons that helped to build Cardiff.
The ‘village’ atmosphere of Pontcanna in unique in that within a 15 minute stroll you can be in the city centre or even in the tranquillity of the beautiful castle grounds or national museum. Pontcanna has a bespoke selection of locally run cafes, bistros, gastro pubs and one or two traditional pubs. It is also home to the famous Le Gallois and Cameo restaurants. Surrounding all of that you have the beautiful Llandaff fields leading up to the Cathedral.
