Large, comfortable house perfect for exploring South Wales and beyond.

Our home, "Trefnant" is a very large and attractive 1920’s house which is tastefully decorated and equipped with all modern facilities. It has recently undergone a complete external refurbishment. We have seven double bedrooms, three of which have en suite shower rooms. There is also a large family bathroom with bath and shower. An annexe to the house contains a home cinema room and a small private bar with toilet and shower which we use for entertaining at home. The house will comfortably accommodate up to 10 people. Trefnant sits in extensive landscaped grounds which slope down to a small river. We have a small outdoor swimming pool which is heated during the summer months and a large gazebo which provides a sunny area for relaxing and outdoor entertaining. Families with small children should be aware that the pool and river banks are unfenced. Trefnant is located in the village of Dinas Powys, and is a short walk from the village square where you can find pubs, a post office, delicatessen a good restaurant and village store. By car or train, we are just over an hour from Bath, the Cotswolds, and one of Wales' National Parks in the Brecon Beacons. The unspoilt beaches of the Gower Peninsula and Pembrokeshire are between one and two hours away by car. Cardiff, which is Wales' capitol city is about 10 minutes away and has great shopping and world class sporting, arts and cultural facilities. As well as offering a wide range of dining and entertainment opportunities, Cardiff Bay includes the International Sports Village which has an Olympic size indoor pool, an ice rink and an artificial white water rafting, canoeing and surfing centre.  Trefnant and its immediate locality will keep you happily entertained if you prefer a relaxing holiday in an interesting and varied part of the world with lots going on. Alternatively, you could use our home as a base for exploring Wales and Southern England more widely. We have previously exchanged with families from the USA who greatly enjoyed the warm Welsh welcome our area offers. We have 2 cars, a BMW X5 and a BMW 6 Series convertible. Both are automatic and have sat-nav. Usually we travel as a couple but occasionally friends or family may join us. We are also happy to offer a bed and breakfast arrangement for up to 4 people, adults only please. This can be provided on a reciprocal basis or for a reasonable charge if it is not part of an exchange arrangement. To find out more about our local area, go to www.visitcardiff.com .

About Our Family

We usually travel as a couple but occasionally friends join us making a party of four. In future we would also like to travel as an extended family group including some of our grandchildren. That would make us a party of 6 or 7.

Lifestyle

We are a retired couple and enjoy the opportunity to travel. Our grown up children and their families live near us and will happily offer advice and assistance to visitors to our home. We are happy to consider a non-simultaneous exchange as well as a swap and will offer bed and breakfast if a non simultaneous exchange is arranged. South Wales offers opportunities for very active pursuits on land and water as well as access to high quality cultural and artistic events.
