About Downstairs Crow's Nest Barry Island

Downstairs Crow’s Nest holiday apartment is tucked away on a quiet residential street just a stone’s throw from the beach on Barry Island. Sleeping two in one king-sized bedroom it is a lovely spot for a romantic self-catering getaway. Enjoy lazy mornings admiring the sea view from the sitting room, or potter straight from your bedroom into the pretty garden. It is easy to stock up on all your essentials with food shops just a five-minute walk away, or treat yourselves to a meal out at one of the nearby restaurants.

When you are ready to leave the apartment, it is just a short walk to the small beach at Jackson's Bay or around the headland from the wide sandy beach at Whitmore Bay. Catch some rays, go for a dip, or if the weather isn’t on your side take a stroll along the promenade. The brightly coloured beach huts are bound to put a smile on your face and the enticing cafes and restaurants are far too tempting to not stop for a coffee or leisurely lunch. Any adventurous souls can enjoy the thrilling rides at the Pleasure Park, whilst Gavin and Stacey fans can visit the infamous slot machines where Nessa worked! If you are looking for something a bit more relaxing enjoy a round of adventure golf or a picnic in the landscaped gardens.

The Wales Coast Path runs directly past the apartment making it easy to explore the area on two feet. Head west and enjoy a circular walk around Porthkerry Country Park. Make sure you look out for the Roman Villa, the iconic viaduct and the pirate’s treasure which is said to be buried under the Golden Stairs. With 220 acres and miles and miles of trails to explore, it is easy to spend a day here. There are even picnic and barbeque facilities or head to the café to re-fuel. Or if you fancy really stretching your legs you can walk a section of the 55 mile Taff Trail which stretches from Cardiff Bay to Brecon.

If you are looking for your fill of shops, culture and bright lights head to the city of Cardiff for the day. Just half an hour on the train from Barry Island it makes an easy day (or night!) trip. Soak up the atmosphere during a game of rugby at the Millennium Stadium or embrace the history and heritage of this fascinating city by taking a tour of Cardiff Castle.

If you like to go on holiday with friends, whilst also having your own space, you can rent Upstairs Crow’s Nest too.
