Gwynant is one of Castell Cottages holiday homes that sleeps five guests in two bedrooms and sits just four hundred metres from Caerphilly Castle, one of Europe's largest and most spectacular medieval castles.
Perfect for families, friends and couples, Gwynant has a good range of amenities within walking distance including a Morrisons supermarket, pubs and the Castle Shopping Centre.
An excellent base for exploring the whole of South Wales, Gwynant is just over seven miles from the bustling city centre of Cardiff and twelve miles from the cathedral and university city of Newport. For those travelling by car, the M4 motorway (junction 32) is just ten minutes away providing easy access for exploring South Wales. Caerphilly also offers easy rail connection to and from Cardiff with regular trains taking less than twenty minutes for those looking for a night out in the city or attending an event at Cardiff Principality Stadium (taxis are also affordable for late night returns!).
Cardiff and the surrounding area has lots to offer those who enjoy theatre, films, sports, opera and night life. The area has an abundance of attractions with particular favourites being the romantic 'fairy tale' castle of Castell Coch; St Fagans National Museum of History; White Water Rafting in Cardiff's International Sports Centre; and Techniquest Cardiff, a favourite for younger ones (and older ones!) interested in science imaging. The area also offers good opportunities for golf, climbing and horse riding.
For those who want to explore the wider area, the Brecon Beacons National Park, beaches of Barry (home to Gavin and Stacey), Swansea, the stunning peninsular of Gower and the seaside town of Porthcawl are all within a forty five to seventy five minute drive.
