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: CC624013
    Arch Cottage lies in a quiet side street in the centre of pretty Llanidloes, which was once the heart of the ancient medieval kingdom of Arwystli. It is the first town on the River Severn and is an ideal spot to take a short break or longer holiday. Easy to reach, Llanidloes is situated only a 2-hour drive from Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff, with the national rail network running close by. Yet ’Llani’ as it is often referred to locally, is far away from hustle and bustle of modern life and the perfect place to relax amidst some of the most unspoilt and undiscovered scenery Wales has to offer, surrounded by soft mountain scenery which makes it very popular with wildlife enthusiasts and hikers. The Celtic Saint Idloes laid the foundations of a church on table land overlooking the Severn and today the layout of wide streets formed in the shape of a cross form the heart of the town. The Old Market Hall, the only half timbered hall of its kind in Wales and still in its original position, was constructed on the centre of the cross in the early 1600s. Llanidloes has an array of interesting independent shops, cafes and no less than nine pubs, so no shortage of places to eat and drink. There are over 30 separate walking routes and national trails around the town which are clearly marked and signposted. They link Llanidloes with the smaller surrounding villages of Llangurig, Llandinam and Trefeglwys and range from just a few miles to a good day’s walk. Many of the roads and tracks around the town are ideal for cyclists and the Lon Cambrian Sustrans routes pass through the town. In this beautiful Mid Wales region you will find castles, country houses & gardens, wildlife and nature reserves, small market towns, lakes, mountains and the beaches of the Ceredigion coastline are within easy reach. After days out enjoying the area, Arch Cottage is the perfect place to come back to with its cosy living room, wood burner, courtyard terrace, and all that the lovely town of Llanidloes has to offer right on your doorstep!

    "In the peace of Gower’s gentle farmland – with beaches and bays close at hand . . ."

    The Gower Peninsula with its rolling countryside and miles of unspoilt coastline is the setting for these very comfortable holiday cottages which themselves are set on 30 acres of land. The cottages have been furnished and equipped to a very high standard, and are double glazed throughout. Visitors enjoy shared use of a games room with table tennis and a pool table, and may relax in the garden area; bicycles are available for hire in Swansea and facilities for water sports and fishing are close at hand. There is easy access to many beautiful sandy beaches and coves within 10 miles or so, and opportunities nearby for scenic moorland and coastal walks in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gowerton, with its shops and pub, and local trains to west and mid Wales, is only half a mile away.
    A nearby cycle track leads to the Mumbles, which is famous for its lighthouse and lifeboat station and also boasts seaside attractions, a pleasant promenade and lots of sailing dinghies and small boats. At Penclawdd (3 miles), cockle fishermen go out on to the mudflats at low tide with horse-drawn carts to rake out the cockle harvest. Many of the Gower’s sandy beaches are backed by dunes, and some offer excellent wind-surfing; there are sandy coves with rock pools and the coastal path leads to wonderful cliff-top views. Inland, the sheep and sturdy Gower ponies roam moorlands which offer further opportunities for walks, picnics, riding and bird-watching.
    A number of National Nature Reserves are home to rare birds and plants. The glistening Loughor Estuary provides a haven for waders and geese among the rice-grass, sea lavender and marsh mallow of Llanrhidian Marsh, all overlooked by the summit of Cilifor Top, which is crowned with an extensive Iron Age fort; a nearby lane passes the ruin of Weobley Castle, once a fortified manor house; on the Gower, visitors can explore history and natural history side by side at every turn, almost everywhere with the sound of the sea in the background.
    Hang-gliders take off from Rhossili Down, now in the care of the National Trust, and swoop over the bay, whose three-mile sweep of golden sand is one of the most spectacular on the Welsh coast and often offers ideal conditions for surfing. The many facilities of Swansea include restaurants, shops, theatres, leisure centre, concert halls, museums, golf courses, extensive parks and gardens, a marina and the Welsh National Swimming Pool and sandy beaches with bathing (6 miles). A 30-minute drive leads to the National Botanical Gardens in Carmarthenshire, whilst an 18-hole golf course and a wildlife and wetlands sanctuary are both only ten minutes away by car.
    Within an hours’ drive and well worth a visit is the lively capital city of Cardiff with its National Museum of Wales at St Fagans, as well as Cardiff Bay and the new tidal barrage. Nowadays, the Gower is more easily accessible by road, and the warming effect of the Gulf Stream means that the weather for visitors to the cosy cottages of Cefn Gorwydd can be exceptionally pleasant at any time of year. Shops ½ mile.

    This cottage adjoins Ty Gwyn and is equipped to similarly high standards. Open-plan, beamed living/dining room with rugs on quarry-tiled floor and electric fire set in stone fireplace.
