There is a private shower (with towels) and toilet with underfloor heating on the ground floor. Free parking and excellent bus/train services to the city centre.
We live in a beautiful semi-detached house, which is located in a green suburb of the city with parks nearby and the Taff Trail, which runs alongside the River Taff, easily accessible. There are good local shops, including a Tesco Extra, chemist and hair-dressers around the corner. Cardiff city centre can be accessed easily by frequent buses (bus stop two minutes walk away) or by train. Llandaf train station is a ten minute walk from our house. You can walk to the city centre along the River Taff and through beautiful park land in about one hour and twenty minutes from our house.
There is free off-road parking outside the house, and we are minutes away from the M4 and seconds away from the A470.
