Hire a self catering cottage in Wales and enjoy a walking holiday in this stunning, unspoilt corner of the world. From a farmhouse amongst the ragged peaks of Snowdonia National Park to cosmopolitan Cardiff apartments, a Welsh holiday has something to offer everyone. Stay in a seaside cottage on Anglesey or a log cabin or lodge in the Brecon Beacons, and admire breathtaking coastal views and an array of wildlife in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Welsh accommodation is ideal for all the family, with numerous impressive castles and sandy beaches waiting to be explored. Try rock climbing or pony trekking on Snowdon, or browse handcrafted treasures in a local craft shop. Rent a holiday home in Britain’s smallest city, St David’s, or a cosy cottage on the Gower Peninsula, and discover the fascinating Welsh culture.

Wales has a proud history of story telling and music, with some of the greatest tales known in the English language starting here. There is also an emphasis on keeping the Welsh language alive, and you will hear this ancient language spoken across the country. Most signs will also be displayed in Welsh with an English translation.

Great for family holidays or relaxing getaways, walking in the hills, climbing Snowdonia, or surfing off the coast, Wales is one of the most interesting and varied holiday destinations in the UK.
