Property description

A very comfortable and relaxing 2 bedroom, ground floor apartment near Cardiff Bay. Excellent location, only a 10/15 minute walk to the Wales Millennium Centre, Mermaid Quay and its numerous restaurants and trendy bars. With the city centre only a 15/20 minute walk the apartment is an ideal base to explore the City or for those visiting for events at the Millennium Centre, Millennium Stadium, Arm’s Park, Swalec Stadium,
St David’s Hall, Cardiff’s Theatres and Cardiff Motor Arena (all within walking distance). Cardiff’s Universities and Cardiff Stadium are a short drive away and easily accessible by taxi or public transport.

Cardiff has an amazing array of things to do to keep visitors occupied all year round. Cardiff boasts one of the finest selections of golf courses in the UK, there is a myriad of cultural and sporting events available, from the National Museum and Gallery of Wales, to the Millennium Center, home of the Welsh National Opera and International arts complex, St. Davids Theatre, and of course, the world famous Millennium Stadium, which not only hosts world class rugby and football fixtures, but also major musical events. Sailing, canoeing and kayaking are very popular in Cardiff Bay and the Bristol Channel – and of course, the shopping is fabulous!

Approximately 80% of the UK can be reached by road within 4 hours from Cardiff. London is just 2 hours away by train and European, national and other overseas destinations are well served by Cardiff International Airport.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a retired couple living in our Welsh cottage near Llanelli and Swansea . We have considerable knowledge of Wales should you have any questions. In the photo I am standing by the side of the Millennium Stadium having completed a lovely walk in the nearby Bute Park which is described as countryside in a town.

Why the Owner Chose Mermaid Quay:
Cardiff is such a young and vibrant city . Its many attractions cater for every age group. We have enjoyed the bars and restaurants, theatres and events in Cardiff Centre and Cardiff Bay ( all within walking distance ). Our walks have taken us to Cardiff parks, the Taff Trail, the Barrage ( part of the Coatal Path ), Cosmeston Lakes and Medieval Village, Penarth, Barry Island and the Brecon Beacons.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is warm and cosy with all modern amenities. As a ground floor apartment there are no stairs to climb. The grounds are well kept as are the communal areas. There is a caretaker on site. So convenient for all the attractions that the vibrant city of Cardiff has to offer.To be car free is wonderful. There is secure parking for one car controlled by CCTV. If guests have more than one car there is a little visitor parking, road parking outside the complex and a car park just up the road costing £4 per day.
