Cardiff is commonly known by locals and beyond as the land of Castles. Many moons ago, it was also known as the Land of King Arthur, who was known to be welsh, so that’s probably where that one came from.
Today, the land of Cardiff has many rolling fields surrounding the city; a city that is great for bikers. The outskirts of the city contain views that will simply leave you breathless. The city itself on the other hand, also has views that will leave you breathless; especially on the coast!

Nestled within the beautiful forest within the grounds of the historic Castell Coch, this café is the side business of a Stove and Fire manufacturer.

There isn’t much information online for this café in particular. However, we had to include it due to the location! It is situated on the banks of the Cosmeston Lake, which is a must have if you’re on a ride in or out of Cardiff heading towards the village of Sully.
The historic Radyr Court dates all the way back to 1469. Although the original complex of the ‘court’ was burnt down, rumour has it that you can still see evidence of the dungeons! Nowadays, the Danescourt local is a thriving pub within the community, offering delicious lunch options with a large community car park out front too!

- Aside from Cardiff, Wales is home to the place with the largest name, and the meaning is even stranger! Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is located in Anglesy. Translated it means, ‘The Church of St Mary in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio near a red cave’. We’re no experts at naming places. Regardless, try say that when you’ve had a few drinks… or none!
- Why hop overseas for a tan when you’ve got Cardiff? Rumour has it that the welsh capital gets more hours of sunlight than Milan!
