This place has such a great atmosphere and is so close to everything, if you loved Gavin and Stacey you'll love it here as you can see the popular places where it filmed. Totally worth the trip from Cardiff.

I dont think so, there are some a bit of a distance away but not very close to the island that I know of. I will check and get back to you but it wont be until after Easter.
