We have everything from Luxury Spa’s to Romantic Ruins. And if you’re looking for somewhere special to pop the question, here are some epic locations that we think would be perfect!

Castell Coch 

Castel Coch

Castel Coch, South Wales

A really magical place to propose is a fairy-tale castle only a few miles outside Cardiff.  This small intimate 19th century Gothic Revival castle, with its colourful interior and beautiful woodland setting provides the perfect place for that special prince and princess.

Ystradfellte Waterfall

Brecon Beacons

Ystradfallte Waterfall, Brecon Beacons

Ystradfellte is the home of BBC’s Merlin, chosen for its caves, walk-behind waterfalls, cascades, and even a river that disappears into a deep cave and magically re-appears in the crystal clear ‘Blue Pool’. The beauty of this area is renowned and perfect for a special and memorable proposal.

Llanddwyn Island, Anglesey

Anglesey

Llanddwyn Island, Anglesey

Named after the Welsh patron saint of lovers, St Dwynwen, Llanddwyn Island can be reached via a Blue Flag beach and a sand dune system.  Once you’re on the island there’s plenty in the way of Celtic romance: church ruins, a lighthouse, grazing Welsh mountain ponies and the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance, over the water.

The island can be cut off for an hour or two at very high tides, adding to the feeling of being marooned in your own patch of paradise. And an hour should be just enough time to pluck up your courage.
