You’ll find us in the peaceful village of Radyr. Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, our home is a newly refurbished Victorian house about five miles from Cardiff city centre.

We’re a short walk from a range of local amenities including shops, churches, a local library and a beauty salon. We’re also only a short distance from historic places of interest including Castle Coch and the museum of historic dwelling places.

Dining choices

Enjoy activities

Danybryn resident Tina Adams laughing The home offers a range of activities for residents, including arts and crafts, literacy classes, storytelling, computer studies, calligraphy classes, indoor bowls and bingo.

We organise regular trips out, including to the botanical gardens, museums, rugby and football matches, and to pubs and seaside resorts.

We also like to organise events at the home, such as fun days, musical evenings and fundraisers. You’ll have the chance to be social, get creative or enjoy exercise — you choose. 

Group activities aren’t for everyone and you might just want to do things on your own. If so, we can help. If you need support, one option is to find a volunteer to come along with you. 

Whatever activities you’d like to do, you can always talk to one of our team about the different choices available to you. 

 

Martin’s story

Martin Williams, resident at Danybryn‘My name is Martin and I’ve lived at Danybryn for 16 years. I feel that the staff really know and understand me here, and I definitely have my needs met.

‘I know there are people I can talk to if I ever have any issues.    

‘I love hiking and the outdoors. I’ve been to the summit of Ben Nevis and Snowdon in my wheelchair. I’m hoping to do another challenge soon with my son.

‘I go out a lot — I really like to just get on the train into Cardiff and wander around for the day. I also watch a great deal of football — I’m a Manchester City supporter, and I’d be lost without it!’
