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: OY6

    Nestled down a quiet country lane near the charming market town of Narberth, these traditional Welsh barns are situated on a 50-acre working farm in Pembrokeshire’s beautiful rolling countryside, with easy access to the popular coastal resorts of Saundersfoot and Tenby. Brynbank Cottage (ref OY6) is attached to the main house, The Coach House (ref OY7) stands detached, and The Old Shippon (ref OY8) and Brynbank Lodge (ref OY9) are attached to eachother. The owner will unpack and put away guests pre-ordered online shopping prior to arrival on request. Pembrokeshire, home to golden beaches, picturesque coastal villages and majestic sites, is the perfect destination in which to unwind and relax whatever time of year you choose to visit. The unblemished beaches south of the county including Amroth, Broadhaven and Freshwater West, are just a few worthy of a visit and are perfect for water-based activities such as kayaking, surfing or coasteering. The former barns lie peacefully in a secluded courtyard, adjacent to the owner’s farmhouse, dating back to the early 18th century, where the owners have sympathetically converted them into spacious holiday accommodation. Each barn has retained much of its original charm and character, including stone walls and oak beams, and lots of welcoming touches have been added to provide guests with an unforgettable holiday experience. Outside, guests can relax on a secluded enclosed patio, which is perfect for alfresco dining on a sunny day, or stroll the 50 acres of farmland and meet some of the grazing resident animals including sheep, pigs, cows and a horse. The regency market town of Narberth, with its multi-coloured Edwardian and Georgian buildings, is well worth a visit and home to highly acclaimed restaurants and independent shops selling a whole range of exquisite items, from fine art to fine food, rubbing shoulders with vintage and antique shops. For an interesting day out, take a trip to Tenby and indulge in one of the numerous cafés, gift shops or many restaurants tucked away in its historic walls, or wander down to the sandy haven of the award-winning harbour beach, with its sheltered bay, golden sands and crystal blue waters. A trip to the resort would not be complete without taking a boat ride across to the off-shore island of Caldey, home to its Celtic monastery and Cistercian monks who have made it a holy island for hundreds of years. Away from the resort, the gourmet town of Saundersfoot is well worth a visit, as are the numerous historic sites dotted around the county including Manorbier, Carew and Pembroke castles. For family time together, visit the award-winning leisure attractions of Folly Farm, Oakwood and Anna’s Welsh Zoo, famous as the habitat of Wales’ first ever rhinoceros. Beach 6 miles.
