Cabins are en-suite (shower, toilet and radiator) and feature a kitchen area with a gas cooker, grill, microwave and fridge and a double bed that converts to a sofa in the day. All linen and towels provided. Each has a deck with a table and chairs plus its own private hot tub. Visitors have full access to 8 fishing lakes, with the stock including carp, bream, tench, barbel and roach and. The fish also attract plenty of birdlife – keep your eyes peeled for herons and kingfishers.

Also super fast fibre broadband in each of the cabins which is free.


If you visit the Moody Sow Farm Shop (01633 680034; see Food & Drink) you might as well explore the Cefn Mably Farm Park (01633 680312) while you’re there – the popular farm has plenty of animals to see. Golfers will love the Cardiff Golf Centre (029 2036 1122), 2 miles away, though The Celtic Manor course (01633 413000; 15-minute drive) is the most famous location nearby. It’s having the city on the doorstep, though, that makes Cefn Mably Lakes such a joy. For those coming out of town, the Lakes is an excellent country spot to kick back and retreat, while those heading into the city will find they’re just 15 minutes from the centre of the action, plus Cardiff Bay and Caerphilly Castle (029 2088 3143) are within very easy reach.

Food & Drink

Breakfast is available from the on-site café between 8am–10am, with coffees and snacks on sale all day. It’s ½ mile to the award winning Moody Sow Farm Shop (01633 680034), which is perfect for stocking up on BBQ meat or picnic grub. There’s also a good walk (around 1 mile) to the The Cefn Maby Arms pub (01633 680347).

Getting There

Cefn Mably Lakes is 5 minutes from junction 28 of the M4. Take the exit signposted Castleton (A48) and follow this road for about 3 miles. Once into Castleton, just past The Coach & Horses pub, there is a brown tourist sign to Cefn Mably Lakes. Follow this through the lanes and it will take you right to the site.

Cardiff and Newport are the main train stations nearby. Cardiff has regular trains from across the country. Once there, catch the number 30 bus to Castleton, then either get a taxi, walk the remainder (2½ miles) or hide in the pub!
