House in Penarth, Cardiff, Great Britain

Hello, and welcome to viewing our home. 

We have a lovely 4 bed house perfect for a family or small group. We are looking to home exchange for two weeks in August. We would obviously agree that any exchange would provisional depending on the Covid 19 rules at the time. We would love to hear from you, please contact us if you are interested.

We would also consider doing some mini exchanges over the school half-terms.

Our location
Our house is in Penarth, a very popular and vibrant area just outside Cardiff. We have just moved so will put up better pictures in a few weeks. We are a 15 minute walk from Penarth beach and pier, as well as the local shops and beautiful coastal walks.. Penarth is a lovely local town with lots of local shops, cafes and restaurants. We also have a children's park, the local swimming pool and lots of lovely pubs to choose. There is also a wide range of walks/cycle rides to choose from in the surrounding area.

On the first floor we have 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom, with a bath and shower. We are yet to sort out the details of each bedroom but we will easily be able to accommodate up to a family with 3 children.

The garden is a peaceful area to relax in with table and chairs, slide and you will have access to our children's outside games such as a paddling pool, toy cars, swingball, balls, cricket bat etc..
