warm welcome on arrival. Well equipped kitchen, everything you need for a busy family. lots of lovely little extras such as shower gel, cotton buds etc. wifi and tv great for teenagers and highchairs/cots avalible for younger guests. spacious living room with plenty of games/books/dvds to keep us amused. park across the street and supermarket and fish and chips less than 5 mins walk away. Cardiff only 30 mins drive away train station 5 mins walk from house, great base to visit Cardiff and the valleys

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Arriving from a 2h-delayed flight, with 2 tired and hungry kids, a Sunday at 4pm and being all the shops closed, it didn't seem as a good holiday start. But suddenly all changed arriving to Valleybreak with the warm welcome we received. Clearly that was just an advance on how kind and nice the people has been there.

The house is cute and cosy, well equipped, smartly "autodocumented", therefore it was easy to feel it as our home from the next day. These holiday weeks have been very enjoyable, some days going to the beach, some days visiting castles and villages, and other days just resting in the backyard while the kids learned English by watching TV, ... :)

We will remember these two weeks for a very long time, thanks very much!
