Self catering holiday cottages Wales

A self-catering cottage holiday in Wales brings independence and a sense of place. Over a warm mug of tea you might watch the morning ebb and flow of village life as the postman drops off the day’s mail, the harrowing of the farmer’s plough as he climbs the hillside, or the dawn circling of calling seagulls above a returning trawler.

From week to week cottage owners welcome families, groups of friends and romantic couples looking for a little privacy. Whether it's a seaside cottage or a cottage in one of Wales' historic villages, tucked away in an idyllic valley: with plenty of space to make your own, you have the freedom to burn your own dinner, uncork your own wine, or dine out in the local restaurants.

Cottage, converted barn or farm

Tourism has preserved Welsh heritage, with traditional rural cottages, farms and barns available alongside converted historic buildings. A Welsh cottage could give you a budget break, where the pennies look after the pounds, or a luxury holiday experience complete with swimming pool and sauna.

For many a wise traveller, Welsh cottages are a haven from home. The sound of centuries of peace can be found in the respectful silence of the local village church, its walls a postboard of local history. Step outside and the ring of daily life continues as visitors join locals to explore the crafts and antique shops on a Saturday morning.

For others, it’s the family days out with children that bring people back year after year, for horse riding, adventure parks, or just a quiet afternoon’s fishing. But you’ll be safe in the knowledge that tired adults and kids will be embraced within the privacy of your cottage’s four walls as the evening light fades.

Pet friendly accommodation

There’s often a place by the fire for animals, with plenty of pet-friendly cottage holidays in Wales; what with all the country walks you’ll be taking, you might as well bring the dog to charge ahead in front.

Most folk get a taste for the life here and stay for at least a seven-day week holiday, though long weekend breaks are available too. Prices start to climb in spring and tend to be highest in summer and around Christmas and New Year. Bargains may be found in the autumn and winter months in-between.
