  • Kingfisher cabin (hot tub, waterside)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The cabin itself was lovely, clean and comfortable. Had everything you needed. The deck out onto the water was brilliant of an evening, you could see birds, bars and the fish jumping. It's quiet, tranquil and private. The hot tub was great, even in the not so great weather.

    The location is great, right out the way in the quiet countryside yet only a 15 mins drive into Cardiff city centre. There please try of restaurants and bars, (spoilt for choice). There's plenty of places to go shopping and it's not too far of a drive from a decent beach. So you really do get the best of both worlds. Stay in on the quiet lake or head in to the city.

    All in all couldn't fault the place. We had a wonderful stay.

    Disliked: 

    No WiFi....... But that's only if I'm being really really picky.
