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.

    If you’re looking for a romantic retreat with a difference then look no further; Ty Bach (meaning ‘little house’) is a lovingly crafted western red-cedar shepherd’s hut approached by a private pathway leading to its own garden overlooking pretty Powys countryside.


    Inside this cute hut, there’s a comfortable sofa by day that converts into a full-size double bed by night with a sprung mattress. Light the wood burner, relax, and enjoy a glass of wine in cosy comfort all year round. There’s a fold down table and a small kitchen area with sink and single gas burner to make a cuppa or a quick breakfast. In days gone by, a shepherd’s hut wouldn’t have had the luxury of electricity or showers, but Ty Bach has both, and at one end of the hut, you’ll find an en-suite shower room with an eco-toilet. Electricity is provided by means of a battery and solar panels, so there are lights, a double socket and 12-volt power point. With no TV or Wi-Fi, there’s nothing to distract guests from getting back to nature in this most tranquil setting. The owners live adjacent, so help is always at hand. In the nearby shed you’ll find a large insulated cool box that the owner will keep cool with fresh ice blocks, so that your provisions, wine and beer will stay chilled throughout your stay. With a barbecue and garden furniture, guests can enjoy dining al-fresco style, whilst admiring the beautiful surroundings.


    If you can drag yourself away from Ty Bach, guests are advised to explore the beautiful county of Powys. The area is a paradise for outdoorsy types with walking, cycling and mountain biking, canoeing, fishing and horse riding available nearby. Delve into the rich history of Wales’ last prince, Llewellyn, who was killed near Builth in 1282. Today the interesting market town, which is just 8 miles away, hosts Wales’ famous Royal Agricultural Show in July annually, along with other shows and fairs throughout the year. Also nearby are the historic, vibrant towns of Rhayader and Llandrindod Wells, with their independent shops, cafes and restaurants. There’s also the spectacularly stunning Elan Valley Dams, 500² miles of breathtaking scenery in the Brecon Beacons National Park, and Hay-on-Wye, which is cited as the ‘second-hand book capital of the world’.
