Inspiration for Cottages to rent in Wales

There are many great places to explore when visiting Wales, so if you’re looking for inspiration for a specific kind of holiday, we’ve put together some of our top recommendations for different kinds of cottages below.

Top 4 North Wales Holiday Destinations

Snowdonia National Park

Snowdonia’s scenery is raw, rugged and spectacular at any time of year, whether you visit during the daffodil strewn slopes in spring or the snow-capped peaks in winter. Despite its massive size, Snowdonia is home to just over 25,000 people, leaving much of it pristine and uninhabited.

This national park is a hiker's paradise. Not only is there Snowdon to scale (by steam train, if you're not feeling very energetic) but there are also 90 other peaks to climb.

Coed-y-Brenin caters for mountain bikers of all abilities, with trails ranging from beginner's paths to hair-raising black runs. Swap your bike for a saddle of a different kind and get up on horseback for an alternative view.

Ride the rapids, jump and bounce your way through an old slate mine that has been turned into an underground trampoline, or leave your stomach behind as you fly along 8km of a zip line.

Beautiful Castles

While you're in North Wales, make sure you see some of the area's major castles, such as Caernarfon, Beaumaris and Conwy. The locals are so friendly that it's difficult to remember the region was the site of some of the biggest battles in British history.

Wales Coast Path

Wales is surrounded by water on three sides, giving it nearly 900 miles of coastline which range from smooth and sandy to rugged and rocky. It's possible to walk all of this, thanks to the Wales Coast Path.

You can also enjoy a traditional bucket and spade holiday at resorts like Llandudno, Barmouth and Abersoch, as well as Rhyl, Colwyn Bay and Prestatyn.

South and Mid Wales

It's easiest to picture mid-Wales as a triangle that reaches from Welshpool to Aberystwyth and southeast to Brecon. Central Wales is the epitome of rural tranquillity, with villages and towns interspaced with lush green countryside. It's fun to explore on the Heart of Wales train line that runs through it, stopping at pretty villages en route.

The majority of Wales' population is in the south. In the southwest are Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire, with Welsh widely spoken as the main language in the latter.

As you move east you'll come to Swansea. Small but fantastic, it's the birthplace of poet Dylan Thomas and has a respected university and amazing beaches.

Neath Port Talbot and the Rhondda are in between Swansea and Cardiff. Once thriving coal mining regions, the landscape is now being returned to its natural state and enjoyed by walkers, cavers and mountain bikers.
