“Totally awesome for Cardiff, walking, beer, and hiding from the rain!”

My partner and I greatly enjoyed our stay in the Railway Cottage. Garth is basically on the doorstep, so you've got no excuse not to walk up it, there's a few pubs left and right outside the house (one of which is part of the Campaign for Real Ale, yes!), and the Taffs Well train station makes for an easy, and cheap, trip to Cardiff. The Cottage is fully equipped, warm, and convenient. The bathroom is lovely, and the bath isn't too short either (coming from someone who is 5ft10in).

The weather was atrocious when we stayed, even by the usual standards for wet-Wales (;, and the Cottage was great for drying out in, and cooking up meals waiting for the rain to calm down.

Rob is a total gem, and the Cottage is something to be proud of - you'd be mad not to visit it!
