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.

    Ref: CC624021
    Situated on a beautiful stretch of the Upper Wye Valley, Middleton is one of five properties which have been created by the imaginative conversion of a 19th century inn, although the original stone cottages have a history going back to the 18th century when they were occupied by an agricultural worker, a blacksmith and a coffin maker. The “Middleton Arms” as it became, was owned by landowners whose seat was at Llyn Parriad and later it changed its name to the “Vulcan Arms” in homage to the Vulcan God of Fire, god of the blacksmiths. It sits on the old Cambrian railway line and was an important hostelry for those using Doldowlod Halt station until the line was closed in the 1960’s. Today the holiday cottage offers every modern comfort whilst still retaining the best features of the old inn. Middleton is a terraced cottage which is spacious and characterful. It offers easy access to the A470 via a slip road; Sustrans cycle routes, the River Wye which is right on the doorstep, Wye Valley Walks and the Red Kite Centre. A very short walk from the property will bring you to a shop, post office and café. A stop for buses to Llandrindod Wells and Rhayader is nearby.

    The town of Rhayader is 7 minutes drive away and the area is home to the spectacular dams and reservoirs of the Elan and Claerwen Valleys. There are events on throughout the year and this is the perfect base for the whole family to experience stunning outdoor attractions including fishing, and discover rich and rare wildlife in the rolling Cambrian Mountains.

    Middleton has use of a large garden, shared with the other cottages, with plenty of outdoor furniture including tables, benches and umbrellas, and there is storage for cycles as well as a jet wash and repair kits, or you can even arrange to hire a bike. Middleton can be booked with Woodman (CC624017), Faulkner (CC624018), Tudor (CC624019) and Searle (CC624020) to accommodate up to 21 / 23 guests.

    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.

    The cottage originates from the 18th century when it was two gamekeepers cottages. It has now been converted into a stylish, warm and cosy property with old beams. The name Cyplau (pronounced Cup-lie) is Welsh for coupled.
    Within the acre garden are meandering paths giving access to several seating areas, many rare plants, topiary, culinary beds, hillside terraces and a green house tended by the owner who lives in the grounds. In the winter it is full of designed shapes whilst in the summer it is a mass of colour and scent. To make life easy there are ready prepared meals using ingredients from the garden in the freezer which can be purchased on an honesty basis.

Outdoor activities are numerous with easy or challenging walks straight from the cottage along rushing rivers into the mountains or along the sandy coastline. Within a 5 minute drive the shoreline provides beautiful and uncrowded beaches at Llandanwg and Harlech. There are regular guided beach walks, rock pools, a small harbour, an activity centre and a beach cafe all providing days of fun and freedom for all the family.
    The Rhinog Mountains provide a stunning backdrop to the village which lies within the Snowdonia National Park. It is a perfect base to discover hidden places by foot or in the car. Renowned for its mountains such as Tryfan and Cader Idris, lakes, panoramic views, shoreline, historic castles and remoteness there is also an abundance of wildlife to identify. Snowdon, the second highest peak in the UK can be walked or ascended using the famous mountain train.
