About Upstairs Crow's Nest Barry Island

Upstairs Crow's Nest is a spacious holiday apartment located on the popular seaside resort of Barry Island. The contemporary kitchen and spacious living room makes this an ideal apartment for a relaxing self-catering holiday. While away a morning reading a book on the window seat, or simply enjoy the fantastic harbour views with your morning coffee.

Located a short walk from the small beach at Jackson’s Bay and around the headland from the huge stretch of sand at Whitmore Bay beach, there are plenty of sunbathing and swimming opportunities. Or if you don't fancy dipping your toes in the sea, take a stroll along the recently refurbished promenade which stretches the entire length of the beach. Admire the brightly coloured beach huts and enjoy the mouthwatering eateries before visiting the famous Pleasure Park. During the summer months there is often a busy programme of free events taking place along the seafront, or simply enjoy an ice cream in the landscaped gardens.

Any keen walkers will be pleased to know that the Wales Coast Path runs directly past the apartment. Lace up your walking boots and be prepared to get your fill of fresh sea air. Or just a few miles away you can explore the beautiful Porthkerry Country Park. With 220 acres of meadowland, woods, a pebble beach and magnificent cliffs there are plenty of nature trails to explore. Make a day of it and take a picnic or hire a barbeque for a lunch time feast. Alternatively, walk a section of the popular Taff Trail which stretches 55 miles from Cardiff Bay to Brecon. If you fancy a day of shopping and culture, the vibrant capital city of Cardiff is only half an hour away on the train. Rugby fans should try and get tickets for a match at the Millennium Stadium or if you are looking to soak up some history and heritage you shouldn't miss the fantastic Cardiff Castle.

The Upstairs apartment at Crow's Nest is ideal for a couple, or if you like to holiday with friends whilst also having your own space, Downstairs Crow's Nest is available to rent too.
