Just outside the vibrant city of Cardiff alongside the Severn Estuary lies the pretty Welsh seaside resort of Penarth, and, once popular with the Victorian holidaymaker, was once otherwise known as `The Garden by the Sea'.

The late nineteenth-century brought to the area the advent of limestone quarrying there, and remained a practice which continued right up until the 1970s. The area was then landscaped, and this renovation formed over 100 hectares of grassland, wetland, woods and lakes. Penarth's Cosmeston Country Park is well worth a trip, and as well as the verdant plant life and delightfully varied wildlife population, within it also lies a medieval village, which is incredibly popular with visitors both young and old.

Another spectacular feature of this charming seaside town is the Victorian pier - a beautiful structure built in the nineteenth-century, today lies dormant, but is being considered for renovation with lots of exciting plans having already been drawn up.

This Victorian seaside town's proximity to Cardiff means that it's a great place from which visitors can enjoy the pace of life in a small Welsh coastal town whilst being close enough to the bright lights of Cardiff city to enjoy a night out or two on their travels.

Why not enjoy a classic Welsh seaside town on your stay in the Vale of Glamorgan? With all the convenience of being close to a major city, but all the quaint tranquility of a British seaside town and ease of access to the nearby outdoor and watersporting facilities, this is a great little place to enjoy a self-catering cottage holiday in Wales
