Eating Out! 🍴
A few local places we love and hope you will too. Cardiff and the surrounding area has a ton of great eating places, from very informal cafes to lovely restaurants where you would spend your whole evening.
The closest restaurant to the house, it is actually a pub so also serve a great pint! Great pub-grub in this very reasonable local pub. Good portion sizes and cheap as chips!

I only hear good things about this place! NB It's actually now called The Humble Onion but for some reason, Air BnB keeps changing it to the Huntsman (its old name). Home cooked Welsh food. Yum!

This place is about 20 minutes drive away, but it is SO WORTH the drive. Booking is essential, they've got Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide, and are also featured in The Good Food Guide, the Good Pub Guide and the Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide!

This is a really unique restaurant which is run by a charity, from Cardiff prison. Its aim is to rehabilitate offenders through training and giving a career, and what's more the food is fine-dining at a decent price. All the leather upholstery and boardroom tables are made by prisoners at HMP Frankland and poetry is from former Clink trainees. The Clink Restaurant is consistently in the top 10 restaurants in Cardiff on TripAdvisor - well worth a visit if you can get a table booked.

A gorgeous bar and restaurant made in a former Chapel hence it's name. Great place to stop if you're going for dinner whilst in Cardiff. Easiest to get an Uber to here, so you can enjoy one of their delicious cocktails without worrying about driving back.

I've recently added this pub on the recommendation of a guest, who has had great value meals he was raving about! It's a local-style pub and is good for a nice meal and a pint at a very low cost. Apparently they also do a great Sunday roast.

Taste the history of Cardiff Bay at the Exchange Hotel's restaurant, Culleys. Located inside the former Coal Exchange building which was once the hub of the global coal trade. Cardiff was once the largest exporter of coal in the world, and Cardiff Bay was the busiest port in Europe.

Local Walks
The Vale of Glamorgan has so many lovely places if you fancy a walk. As a Coastal area we're never too far from a beach. Our local beach would be Penarth Seafront, a Victorian Promenade with a Pier, some lovely places for a coffee and to eat.
If you walk from Penlan Road, you will be out for hours and hours. But there are buses that go from outside the house. Worth a look if it is a nice day.

This is a good half an hour drive from the house, all the way to Brecon. If you love hill walking you can climb the highest mountain in Wales and reach Pen y Fan. Proceed with caution on poor-weather days and take good walking shoes. In good weather the cafes will be open and car parking will be in demand. A stunning place of beauty.

This place is an old fashioned, typical seaside resort that is a half an hour drive away from the house. On a good weather day, it will be buzzing there. You'll be surrounded by fairground rides, ice creams and donuts and 2 of the best fish and chip shops in the Vale of Glamorgan!

Tintern Abbey is a national icon – still standing in roofless splendour on the banks of the River Wye nearly 500 years since its tragic fall from grace. One of the masterpieces of British Gothic architecture. It's about an hour away, in the car.

You can walk here from the house in around 20 minutes. Our town centre is full of small Independent shops and is good if you want a few gifts to take home. There are 3 small supermarkets here: (Tesco, Sainsbury and Co-Op) if you run out of something late at night, although the larger superstores are actually closer to the house. Penarth Town Centre is a nice visit and you can get a coffee in one of the many cafes. You will find gift shops, lots of charity shops, a Boots (pharmacy and toiletries) and lots more. Its not really the place for clothes shopping, choose St Davids instead but if you love Independent shops and small towns, go and check this place out.

This would be 15-20 minutes walk from the house, right on Penarth Marina. Its a downhill walk there, but warning! An uphill walk back! It's actually a lovely walk and the Galley is situated towards the barrage. Must-try - the Cronuts!

You'll get something truly different at the Sherman Theatre. I myself have been in a production here, so am privileged to have been backstage and to many rehearsals here. You can go and see short productions, comedy, touring productions and much more, often with Welsh artists and actors - and if you get chance, for a special price you can attend their Pie & A Pint evenings where you have a pint of beer, a pie to eat and watch a show.
