A majestic landmark with a picturesque seafront setting. Lovingly restored and painstakingly rebuilt; oozing period grace and sophistication – Beachcliff is coming alive again, standing proud at the heart of Penarth’s seafront Esplanade.
Stunning heritage is perfectly blended with contemporary luxury and state-of-the-art technology to create the ultimate lifestyle.
Watch sail and row boats from the historic Penarth Yacht Club cutting through waves sparkling in the sun, while on the horizon big ships ply the Bristol Channel. See the MV Balmoral, built in 1949 and now part of the National Historic Fleet, dock at Penarth’s beautifully restored pier to collect passengers for cruises to Lundy Island, Devon and Somerset. Look to the south to see the Flat Holm island SSSI nature reserve as well as Steep Holm and the Somerset coast beyond.
Originally built in 1904 as a block of shops and restaurants (including the Gwalia Café and Govier’s restaurant) with flats above and private hotels at each end, Beachcliff is a central part of Penarth’s historic waterfront. It was designed by architect Frederick Speed.
The Rabaiotti family took over Beachcliff in the 1950s, operating Italian restaurants and cafés until the building was sold in the early 2000s.
Wake in the peace and quiet of your stylish bedroom, get ready in your luxury en-suite bathroom, choose an outfit from the extensive wardrobe space.
Make breakfast in your designer kitchen. Then sip coffee and watch the world go by along Penarth Esplanade or gaze out to sea from your bespoke living and dining area.
What next? Walk along the seafront and out onto the Pier, shopping in Penarth’s boutiques or maybe a long lunch gazing out across the sea at the award-winning Restaurant James Sommerin on the ground floor.
In the evening, entertain at home, make the short trip into Cardiff city centre to enjoy the many cultural events on offer or visit the iconic Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay where the Welsh National Opera has its season.
Or take it easy at home, use your designer kitchen to cook up something tasty, select something lovely from the integrated wine cooler or order “room service” from Restaurant James Sommerin.
