An Introduction to Wales

Home of three national parks, world-class male voice choirs, rugby champions, castles, and Cardiff. Considering Wales’ compact size, it's crammed full of wonderful things to experience! In fact, our Cottages in Wales are some of our most sought after.

Let's start at the coast, where winding paths overlook miles of award-winning, sandy beaches, water sports abound, and dolphins frolic offshore. Head inland to rugged countryside and sheep-strewn pastures, dotted with historic landmarks and villages with the most tongue-twisting of names. The National Parks of Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons are host to every outdoor pursuit imaginable, while whistling steam trains allow you to take in the scenery at a gentler pace. Coalmining is woven deeply and proudly into the historic identity of Wales, and it was within its humble mining communities that its now legendary male voice choirs first formed.

Wales is believed to have more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world! Explore Edward I's ‘Iron Ring’ of imposing stone fortresses—Beaumaris, Harlech, Caernarfon and Conwy— originally built to keep the unruly Welsh in check.

Fancy a taste of city life? Be sure to head to the capital to sample all the delights of its celebrated round-the-clock entertainment. And when you're feeling peckish, tuck in to some famous Welsh Black beef, tender salt marsh lamb, sensational seafood, or perfectly matured cheeses. Plenty of mouth-watering reasons to rent a cottage in Wales!

Wales is a wonderful choice for a self-catering holiday, and we’ve an outstanding selection of personally inspected Welsh holiday cottages on offer. From charming farmhouses in the hills to stone-built cottages deep in the valleys, picturesque retreats near a beach to stylish townhouses, our holiday lets in Wales have something for everyone. For a little luxury, take an indulgent dip at one of our cottages with hot tubs, cuddle up in a lordly four-poster bed, or dive into family fun at one of our swimming pool properties.

Anglesey for beaches, Snowdonia for mountains, the Brecons for adventure, Cardiff for culture. There’s so much to choose from! Whatever it is you’re looking for, book today for a truly unforgettable holiday in Wales.
