“Great location and accommodation”
Reviewed July 2, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Stayed here for 3 nights in June as was attending a concert in Cardiff so made a long weekend of it. Relatively easy to find. Lovely location in a quiet area but easy links into Cardiff (we used the train and bus to get into the city centre). Lovely house, very quiet and with great views as it’s high on a hill. Would definitely return

“Lived up to high expectations”
Reviewed June 15, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We stayed for 4 nights at the foretop with our 2 and 4 year old and it was the perfect base for exploring the Cardiff area. Everything inside was spotless and looking very up to date. It would be a nice touch to beef up the television from aerial connection but not the end of the world!!
Great hosts and attended to any queries very promptly. I strongly recommend and would also say very decent value for money. Thanks again!

“OMG So close but yet so far !!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Have just had the pleasure of staying at the Foretop , We had friends over from Ireland and wanted to stay in Cardiff. I only live 15 miles outside the city and know the Rhiwbina area but never knew such an idyllic place like the Foretop existed . What a fantastic place , the views , the tranquillity , the wildlife (and that's just the outside). The actual accommodation itself is faultless we had 5 staying and each and everyone of us loved it ,the quality and standard of everything exceeded all our expectations !!!
Anybody looking to stay Cardiff area has to put the Foretop at the top of their list and I will recommend wholeheartedly . Foretop was spotlessly clean and fantastic value for money equipped with everything you need for a short break.

House is very combatable, homely and well equipped. Peaceful location with great views over Cardiff. House is near the countryside but also near the town.

“Hidden treasure with a wonderful view”
Reviewed September 29, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Had the opportunity to stay at The Foretops in September 2016. The house is fantastic and well equipped and with such a relaxing vibe enables our family to have the best night sleep of our holiday. The position of Foretops really enables maximum opportunity to see the wonderful view and the tire swing was a hit with kids. Loved this place our favourite accomodation on our holiday.

“Fantastic, beautiful accommodation. ”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautiful place, loved the views from the apartment. The decor & accommodation was beautifully furnished with 1 king bed and 2 twins. One bathroom upstairs with shower/bath and separate toilet on the lower floor. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. Supermarkets are not too far. We will definitely be back. If you love the countryside this is the place for you. It's not far from Cardiff which is great. We only stayed for 2 nights and it felt like a little holiday....didn't want to leave. One more thing the owners were very welcoming!!

“Idyllic”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed here to enable us visit our son who is at Cardiff University. Popping to his accommodation was a 15 minute trip by car.
The vibrant city is extremely close (albeit sometimes hard to navigate by road, especially to the Bay area) yet the accommodation feels so rural.
The Foretop is extremely cosy with, as mentioned by most who stayed here, stunning views. Seeing Cardiff lit up at night is particularly beautiful.
The facilities are like home from home; cooking for a family of 4 was pleasant, not always something that can be said for holiday accommodation!
We didn’t have the pleasure of really meeting James and his wife but the service received was still excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this property and may well be back one day.
