Mermaid Quay house description

Derwen Cottages is an extremely large yet cosy property, perfectly suited for family and friends to visit south wales for a holiday or special event. Whilst it is close to cardiff it is located in a rural village next to the village pub perfect for a quiet night after a busy day exploring the area.

With one smaller annexe, ideal for a couple or small family up to four and one perfect for a larger group up to eight, this cardiff property can also be booked as one to accommodate up to twelve people in total. It has the added advantage of a private gate to the excellent village pub next door.

For visiting groups of 8 or fewer please ask us for a quote as smaller group discounts apply. If you are enquiring for a small group please contact us even if the calendar indicates the property is let as we might only have rented a small part of the house.

The total property comprises 3 double bedrooms (2 upstairs and one en suite downstairs), one twin bedroom upstairs, four sofabeds two further family bathrooms, two living/dining rooms and a snug each with a tv and dvd player, one fully fitted kitchen and a kitchenette.

This property is perfect for the larger family or travelling group. If you don't believe us then take a look at our reviews!

Please note that we do not accept bookings for hen and stag groups for the period from 1st June to the end of September.

Please contact us for a quote. It would be useful if you could provide as much detail regarding the visit as possible especially where larger groups are involved.
