3 bed cottage in lovely village just minutes from Cardiff, Cowbridge and coast

The Elms is a pretty country cottage, a short distance from Cardiff on the outskirts of Peterston Super Ely. This popular village boasts two good pubs, a post office and shop and a bus service to Cardiff (great for avoiding parking charges and hassle) - all within walking distance.

Located within 10 minutes driving of Cardiff, the cottage is the ideal retreat for visitors - especially cyclists and walkers as we have separate secure outside space to store and dry equipment. Add to that all the culture and shopping the capital city of Cardiff has to offer ( including the Dr Who exhibition) being only a short bus ride away and you can see The Elms is perfectly located to cater for all interests.

The stunning heritage coast is also approx 15 mins away. Some of the beach scenes of Poldark were shot at nearby Southerndown.

For professional business people looking for short term country accommodation within a short distance of the city where they can escape the hustle and bustle, our cottage is ideally located.

The wonderful Brecon Beacons National Park is an easy drive and a must for keen walkers and cyclists.

The Elms has one double and two single bedrooms with family bathroom and all the modern conveniences we have come to accept including unlimited wifi.

It is kept cosy in the winter months with central heating. It also has a fully fitted kitchen with washing machine, small freezer and dishwasher and microwave. Outside there is a small courtyard garden area at the rear with table and chairs for eating alfresco. In the front there is a small pretty flower and shrub garden with a bench seat to catch the evening sun.

There is off road parking for one car.

Cyclists wishing to explore the area will no doubt be pleased to make use of the large lockable garden room for bike storage and golfers will be pleased to have easy access to Cotterel Park and the Vale golf courses. Other attractions include The Dr Who experience, the Welsh Folk Museum and Duffryn House and Gardens
