Location

Ger-y-llyn adjoins the owners property and is situated on an impressive 20 acre estate within a 200 acre working farm. One of two luxury Cardiff holiday apartments set in picturesque, tranquil countryside, within walking distance (approx 750m) of the welcoming village of Peterston-Super-Ely and only 7.5 miles from Cardiff city centre.

Peterston-super-Ely has a shop, post office and 2 friendly, local pubs both serving great food. The village church was made famous as a filming location for the BBC comedy series Gavin & Stacey. There are many enjoyable walks to be found including the Valeways Millennium Heritage Trail that passes through the village, and the quiet country roads provide great cycling.

Cardiff is a city of attractions, sport, culture and entertainment. It has many famous attractions including the The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff Castle, St. Davids' Hall, New Theatre and St. Davids 2 shopping Centre.
