Where to stay in Cardiff

Barry

Barry is the largest town in Wales. It is packed full of maritime and industrial history, but most visitors know it best for the seaside resort of Barry Island that sits at its southern tip. Barry is far from being all beach, beach, beach, but, if its sand, fun and amusements you seek, it can provide it by the bucketful!

Friendly PeopleGolfSmall Town

Porthcawl

Porthcawl is a bustling seaside resort on the South Coast of Wales, with all the best traditions that we know and love — a promenade, safe sandy beaches fringed by rocks, craggy cliffs, waves for surfing and the Coney Beach Amusement Park for all the fun of the fair. There is a nature reserve, a museum and a ruined castle too.

Chepstow

Nestled in an almost signature ‘S’ bend of the River Wye is the attractive market town of Chepstow in the Welsh county of Monmouthshire. With Gloucestershire just over the border, Bristol a short drive away and Newport just down the road Chepstow is ideally located for exploring the southwest of England and the surrounding Welsh countryside but there are plenty of other reasons to plan a break in Chepstow.

Caerphilly

The town of Caerphilly has made a name for itself thanks to the eponymous soft, crumbly white cheese and the fantastical castle that guards the entrance to the Rhymney Valley, looking as if it has just emerged from a fairy tale rather than been built on the lush green ground that surrounds it.

Penarth

Sometimes known as “The Garden by the Sea”, Penarth is a seaside resort in the Vale of Glamorgan just five miles from the Welsh capital of Cardiff.
