Wales holiday cottages: your base for an exciting adventure!
Wales has it all: fresh air, glistening lakes, a magical heritage, and modern towns and cities. Rent a holiday cottage here and you’ll find sweeping valleys, mountains, national parks, and many kilometres of coastline that combine to create a unique destination.
Wales' imposing mountains and pristine lakes are where ancient Celtic stories spring to life. It's also full of wildlife - sea creatures, puffins, and other birds all call this tiny country home and are yours to spot if you have the patience.
Along with its scenery, Wales offers sights that are rich in history, such as the many castles of North Wales and Blaenavon, a town that arguably boasts the world’s oldest railway viaduct. Whether it's history you're interested in, outdoor recreation, or some culture and shopping, renting a cottage in Wales makes for a great family holiday.
How to get to Wales
Wales only has one international airport, which is located in Cardiff. If you're coming from other parts of the UK, it should be easy to reach your holiday home by road or rail. It can be useful to bring your own car if you want to see the best that the Welsh countryside has to offer, as some areas can be hard to reach. Otherwise, there are good train and bus links across the country.
What weather to expect on your holiday in Wales
You’ll want to pack your hiking boots, but don’t rely on faultless sunshine during your excursions. It rains a lot in Wales, though spring and summer do bring their fair share of beautiful, blue-skied days. Don’t feel down if it does rain as it’s all part of the fun. If you leave Wales without going on a windswept, rainy hike then you’ve missed a vital experience. Of course, you'll have a warm and cosy Wales holiday cottage to return to at the end of it.
Wales’ best attractions
You’ll find plenty to keep you occupied when you book your Wales holiday letting, especially if you love the outdoors. One of the highlights is Snowdonia, a beautiful national park in the north of the country. This park covers an area of more than 2000 sq. km and hosts the magnificent Mount Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales.
In Snowdonia and the other national parks, such as the mountainous Brecon Beacons and coastal Pembrokeshire, you can engage in many fun outdoor activities, including hiking and cycling, as well as some adventure sports.
Once you’ve had your fill of outdoor pursuits, step back in time by visiting some of the castles that are dotted around the country. The stunningly well-preserved castle in Caernarfon, which dates back to the 11th century, is one of the best in Europe and is a definite must-see. Another good option is Conwy Castle, which is located just 30 minutes from Caernarfon in North Wales. This castle is a World Heritage site and dates back to the 13th century.
Culture in Wales
The National Museum of Cardiff focuses on natural history and interesting artefacts, as well as hosting an art gallery which opened in 2011 and showcases works from international and domestic artists.
