Holiday cottages in Wales

Rustic Cottages in the North of Wales

In the north of Wales you can find a vacation rental directly in the Snowdonia National Park. You will stay in cottages that combine the rustic charm of a Welsh country house with modern comforts. Two to three bedrooms, spacious kitchens and at least one bathroom are concealed behind natural stone and half-timbered facades. Almost all houses have a fireplace. Four to six people have sufficient space.

Modern apartments in the centre of town

If you would like to get to know the cities in the south of Wales, a vacation rental in the capital Cardiff is the ideal starting point. Townhouses accommodate modern apartments for two to four people or comfortable rooms for a couple. In Swansea you will discover holiday apartments for two to four people with a view over Swansea Bay.

Holidays in Wales

Location and orientation

The smallest part of Great Britain

Wales is part of the United Kingdom and lies in the southwest of the British Isles, west of England. With just over 20,000 square kilometres, Wales is the smallest part of Great Britain. The capital is Cardiff. Wales borders the Bristol Canal in the south, the Irish Sea in the north and the St Georgs Canal in the west.

Impressive mountains and extensive meadows

Along the 1,200 kilometre coastline, rocky cliffs alternate with long beaches. The Cambrian Mountains run through almost the entire interior of the country. The highest mountain is the Snowdon with 1.085 meters. Between the mountains there are extensive meadows and moors.

Travelers and Activities

Wales for cyclists

Wales has more than 1,200 miles of cycling and mountain biking trails. Mountain bikers, for example, explore the Afan Forest Park in the south. There are challenges to overcome in the Snowdonia National Park on Mount Snowdon, such as the Llechwedd quarry. There are also cycle routes for a leisurely excursion. The Celtic Trail West for example leads from Swansea to Fishguard, the Celtic Trail East from the Severn Bridge to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Wales for anglers

If you want to go fishing in Wales, you can either take a vacation rental on the coast or at one of the many lakes. Popular fishing lakes include Llyn Trawsfyndd and Llyn Brenig in Snowdonia National Park. At Llyn y Gors in Anglesey anglers can expect a rich stock of carp and catfish.

A town in Wales is called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch and thus bears the longest place name in Europe.

1st Cardiff Castle

The castle of Cardiff can look back on 2000 years of history. Located in the heart of the Welsh capital, it is one of its main attractions. Under the castle there is a network of tunnels that served as hiding places during the Second World War. Both the castle and the tunnel can be visited.

2. The tomb of Llywelyn the Great

In the city of Cowny, at St. Mary's and All Saint's Church, once stood a large monastery complex. Here is the tomb of Llywelyn the Great, actually Llywelyn ab Iorwerth. From the prince of North Wales, he became ruler of almost all of Wales and ruled for 40 years.

3. Tartlets in the colourful café

During your holiday in Wales you can of course take care of yourself in the apartment. If, however, you are looking for a sweet dessert, take a look at Plum Vanilla in Narbeth in Pembrokeshire. In the colourfully decorated café, two sisters serve Welsh specialities as well as a wide variety of cakes and desserts.
