Getting There

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.

Weather & Climate

Weather 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.

Attractions

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.

Art & Culture

Culture in Wales

With a Wales holiday cottage, you'll have a great base from which to explore this beautiful, green nation. This is also a modern country with much culture to be enjoyed, especially in the capital city Cardiff and the second largest city, Swansea.

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. In Cardiff, you will also find St. Fagans National History Museum, one of the most popular attractions in Wales, in which old Welsh ways of life are presented in an open-air setting.

Local Events

Best events in Wales

Wales has a number of unique, often quirky annual events that you may enjoy visiting during your stay in a Wales holiday letting. The Dylan Thomas Festival takes place in the Dylan Thomas Centre each October and November and hosts events related to the famous Welsh poet.

In March, celebrate the Welsh patron saint on St. David’s Day. Don your Welsh flag and enjoy the day with the locals to commemorate all that is great about Wales. In June, listen to the world’s best classical singers as they try to win the prestigious Cardiff Singer of the Year competition. Note that this event takes place only every two years. At Christmas, towns and cities across the country are transformed into winter wonderlands, with ice-rinks and fairs.

Self-Catering Options

Self-catering in your Wales holiday home

Booking a fully-equipped Wales holiday letting allows you to explore the best of Wales while also having your own cosy space to relax in. If you’re near a big city such as Cardiff and Swansea, then you’ll have many options for buying food. Those in more rural areas will have the pleasure of buying groceries in quaint, traditional stores as well as larger supermarkets in nearby towns. What better way to round-off an exciting day of exploring, then by sharing a hearty meal with your loved ones in your cosy cottage, and planning the next day's adventure?
