Head for Wales cottages to visit an authentic Celtic nation

If you're looking to stay on the Welsh side of the Cotswolds, you'll find yourself in one of the most authentic Celtic nations still existing in the modern world. Staying in Monmouth would put you by the Cotswolds and virtually endless well-maintained grassland especially around the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cotswolds cottages can vary quite a bit, so you should have no problem finding affordable options, luxury options and everything in between.

 
Things to do

Attractions near holiday homes in Wales

The museums of Wales promise a journey deep into the heart of this unique Celtic nation. At St Fagans, close to Cardiff, it's all about historic homes and Victorian schoolhouses – beware of the Welsh Not. In the Big Pit National Coal Museum, you'll be transported down to the subterranean tunnels where miners would once have hacked away at the coalface. In the National Waterfront Museum of Swansea, there are old steam locomotives and fascinating relics of the Industrial Revolution.

Activities

Things to do near Welsh holiday homes

Because the major cities in Wales all hug the coast, the heart of the nation is given over to rural landscapes and wicked mountain ranges. The Brecon Beacons kick things off in the south, the shark-fin peak of Pen y Fan soaring over the deep valleys and lakes with its wiggling hiking paths. In the north, riding the narrow-gauge railway from Llanberis to the top of Snowdon will reveal vistas of the rock-ribbed Crib Goch ridge and the trails of Glyder Fawr. Other adventures await on the seas, with dolphin spotting, seal watching, cliff climbing and more in abundance there.

Weather

Climate for your stay in Welsh holiday homes

It's said that Wales is the land of wind and rain. Visit in the winter, between November and March, to see just how true that is; opt for a cosy cottage in the hills or along the coast to crank up the romance. Spring and summer, starting in April and ending in August, bring the sunniest and warmest days for hitting the beaches of Pembrokeshire and the Gower. Autumn is also pleasant, with perfect hiking conditions for those seeking out Wales holiday rentals in parks like Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons.

Natural features

Be inspired by wonderful Wales

There's a reason that William Wordsworth sought out the cloud-gathering summits of Snowdon to write his stirring poetry. There's something primeval and wild about the Welsh countryside that can't really be put into words. You can discover it yourself by opting for Wales holiday rentals in places like Brecon or amid the mountains of the north. The national parks there are carved with deep valleys and bald peaks, where sheep roam the ridges and hidden lakes reside in the clefts. The coast is another story. Running from glorious Gower to Anglesey, it's awash with dolphins, seals, surfer bays and gorgeous sands.

Beaches

Beaches near holiday homes in Wales

Wales offers an array of unspoilt beaches where you can enjoy relaxing days in the sun. Holiday rentals are available near places like Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, an expansive park with coastal walks, wildlife, watersports and historic sites on scenic beaches near coves. You could also enjoy a day by Bala Lake, a calm lake with watersports opportunities and sandy beaches.

Food & drink

Sample Welsh cuisine in Wales

Welsh cuisine is distinctive and reflects the long history of the country. Lamb and mutton, beef and dairy cattle, seafood, cabbage and leeks are popular ingredients for Welsh recipes.
