Wales

Holiday cottages in Wales offer a fantastic mix of beautiful landscapes and vibrant cities. One day you could be enjoying the unrivalled tranquillity and expansive views of Snowdonia, and the next you could be joining the throng at Cardiff’s majestic Millennium Stadium. To borrow a well-worn phrase, Wales truly is a destination with something for everyone. The only problem with so much choice is finding the right thing for you and your fellow holidaymakers to enjoy, so we’re going to make a few recommendations for an unforgettable holiday in Wales.

Wales really is a country of highlights, with an incredible array of fantastic attractions, both natural and man-made. One of the best ways to get your bearings is to head upwards, so we’re going to recommend a trip to Snowdonia National Park first. If you’d like a bird’s eye view of your stunning surroundings there really is no place like it. The circular Precipice Walk offers a slightly challenging two-hour trek but the pay off is expansive views as far as the eye can see. Mount Snowdon is easily accessible thanks to a train ride, or a climb for more intrepid visitors. However you choose to reach it, the views from the surrounding landscape are breathtaking. Less taxing, but no less beautiful, is the Pembrokeshire Coast. The UK's only truly coastal national park offers stunning limestone cliffs, soft golden sands and cool blue waters as far as the eye can see. Wales’ industrial heritage is celebrated at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns. One of the country’s premier tourist attractions, it offers both a fascinating insight into the lives of the miners and a truly unique landscape to explore and admire. If you fancy a more vibrant holiday experience then there are few better locations than Cardiff. Like Wales itself, the capital city offers a wonderful celebration of history and a wealth of contemporary attractions, so it’s perhaps unsurprising to find out that it’s also one of the most popular destinations for those with Welsh holiday cottages.

A beautifully varied landscape makes Welsh cottages perennially popular with outdoor enthusiasts and those who fancy enjoying the fresh air and stunning spectacle of some of the UK’s most celebrated natural locations. Hikers, climbers, cyclists and boaters will all find much to enjoy in the ‘Land of Song’. Pet owners will be equally satisfied with their choice of holiday destination and there are plenty of places to stretch the legs and give the dog a welcome run-around. If you fancy a more cosmopolitan experience then you’ll find more than enough cities offering great shopping opportunities, vibrant nightlife and a packed calendar of cultural events.

If you’re ready to begin your exploration, take a look at our featured Wales holiday cottages.

    Nestled among lush countryside in an idyllic location, Glan Wye is a homely barn conversion offering an ideal base to explore the delights on offer in the surrounding area. Rhayader lies in the very heart of Wales, situated 700ft above sea level in the beautiful Upper Wye Valley, and is sheltered by the Cambrian Mountains and cupped by hills rising to over 1500ft. Rhyader is also the first town of the River Wye, and the river is renowned as being the canoeing capital of Europe. Water has always played an important role in the town, and today it is known for the spectacular beauty of the flooded Elan Valley, where Victorian engineers created a series of magnificent dams and reservoirs as a water supply for the city of Birmingham, some 70 miles away. It’s truly a walker’s haven with The Wye Valley Trail running alongside the property and splendid cycling opportunities are available. The area is home to the majestic red kite, and with a bird feeding station within walking distance, it can be a popular sight. Guests are welcome to roam the owner’s 270-acre farm. Excellent fishing, riding and golfing can all be found locally. Today, the population of the local villages and countryside surrounding Rhayader is only a fraction of what it used to be a couple of hundred years ago, but the village communities are still very strong, with a variety of rural shows and events throughout the year. The larger spa town of Llandrindodd Wells is within an easy drive. Shops ½ mile.

    Just a few minutes walk from the beach, guests of all ages will be delighted at this well-equipped, detached holiday property, which is well placed for exploring the north Wales coast. Located on a quiet residential cul-de-sac and enjoying a corner plot with plenty of parking, Smitten Cottage offers spacious and comfortable accommodation close to one of north Wales’ most popular beach resorts. Just half a mile from Rhyl town centre and a short walk to the lovely sandy beach, this contemporary property has been thoughtfully renovated to provide many comforts that one expects from a holiday home. The ground floor benefits from a fantastic open plan living area which really lets in the light, making this a very bright and airy space. There is a spacious living area with large flat screen TV, and a well-equipped kitchen/dining room with French doors leading to the enclosed patio. Upstairs, there are four good sized bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and a family bathroom. Rhyl has plenty of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Younger children will enjoy the funfair and amusements on Rhyl promenade, as well as the SeaQuarium, Drift Park and Marine Lake with miniature railway.

    The equally popular resort of Prestatyn is connected to Rhyl by miles of sandy beach and lies just 3 miles away. It offers some great retail and leisure facilities including cinema, bowling, golf club and a leisure centre with swimming, gym, café and children’s play area. Another of Prestatyn’s most popular attractions is Offa’s Dyke footpath, a famous 176 mile national footpath which follows the border between Wales and England. If 176 miles is too long, why not try the shorter North Wales Path which connects Prestatyn to the city of Bangor in the west? Apart from being a great area for walking and cycling, other activities available locally include golf, sailing, kite surfing and water sports. Rhyl’s Marine Lake is the only salt water lake in north Wales and here the more adventurous can try their hand at canoeing, water skiing, wake boarding and knee boarding.

    Smitten Cottage has the best of both worlds making it the ideal choice for singles, couples and families. Come and enjoy a relaxing and comfortable break by the sea, or venture out and explore many attractions. Places of interest include Bodelwyddan Castle, 6 miles, Bodnant Garden, Colwyn Bay, Conwy, the charming Victorian seaside town of Llandudno and the Great Orme, which are all under 20 miles away. Betws-y-Coed and the Snowdonia National Park are 30 miles away and provide a stark contrast against the coastal landscape. Over the border, the historic city of Chester is only a 45-minute drive with its famous racecourse, city walls, excellent shopping and of course Chester Zoo. Beach ¼ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
