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.

    Ty Coch Cottage is part of the owner’s large traditional farmhouse situated on a 200-acre working Welsh farm. The spacious cottage has exposed stone walls and beams, and faces onto the farmyard with a seating area in front and a garden across the yard. The comfortable accommodation offers three bedrooms with views out over the scenic countryside. The owners will be happy to advise you about available walks across the farmland at different times of the year according to where animals are grazing.
    This countryside location feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and yet you are just a few miles from the coastal towns and villages of the stunning Heritage coastline of Ceredigion. There are beautiful beaches and coastal walks to discover and many of the beaches are dog friendly right through the year. Discover quaint New Quay, where houses, pubs and restaurants cling to the sides of the hills overlooking the sheltered harbour and blue waters of the bay. Bottlenose dolphins are resident in these waters and can often be seen either from the harbour wall or more close up on a boat trip. It’s no wonder poet Dylan Thomas found this place such an inspiration when he lived here.
    The picturesque Georgian town of Aberaeron with its colourful houses is well worth a visit and it offers seafood restaurants and chic shops as well as the famous honey ice cream. The mountainous region of the Cambrians is a great place to explore and offers fantastic views and miles of peaceful walking.
