If you’re looking for a perfect cottage holiday – Wales has it all: lush green hilltops abundant with fields of flowers that are entwined with gentle streams and rivers that trickle down from the tops of the surrounding mountains. In the south of Wales you’ll encounter some superb beaches that are perfect for younger families and reminiscent of traditional summer holidays for the older generation. Pembrokeshire in particular has long been a favourite destination for holidaymakers due to its unspoilt coastline that is preserved as a national park. Much of Wales’s diverse landscape in the north and central areas of the country is mountainous and provides spectacular views over the countryside and great opportunities for walking and mountain biking. Wales is also home to some magnificent medieval architecture including the stunning Caernarfon castle which is a world heritage site and home to the museum of the Royal Welch Fusiliers. Wales is easily accessible via motorways for UK residents and is a wonderful retreat for those that want to take a short romantic break or enjoy a cottage holiday in the summer.
