Depending on the length of stay as well as if it’s a couple or a family, there are so many options to choose from in beautiful Wales. Staycations have become a popular choice with foreign travel being restricted. Although Wales is not huge, it may be advisable to choose two or three holiday home bases for your visit. This will ensure you will have enough time to see all that is on offer: the rugged coastline, the mountainous national parks, the lakes, glacial landforms, magnificent castles, and picturesque towns.
The perfect holiday home depends on personal preferences but most tourists agree that they like to choose a destination that feels completely different to where they would normally stay. If you are choosing a beach holiday, make sure your accommodation has great views. If it’s country views you are after, check for the perfect scenic panoramas. There are numerous quirky and interesting places to stay in Wales, including a vintage double-decker bus renovated into luxurious glamping accommodation surrounded by organic farmland, or even a vintage carriage for two. Ideally, choose somewhere conveniently situated for you to be able to partake in all the attractions you would like to see.
Where to Stay In the North
Conwy is a great choice of base for the northern sights you hope to take in. Visit the smallest house in Britain, known as the Quay House but, hopefully, your choice of accommodation will be bigger than this! Conwy Castle dominates the entrance of the town with its historic suspension bridge. Bodnant Garden is one of the most popular gardens in Wales with a multitude of different areas to explore from grand ponds, wooded valleys and expansive lawns.
The centre of excellence for art in Wales is found at The Royal Cambrian Academy of Art. This gallery boasts lively exhibitions and exciting educational programmes. Make sure your holiday home has a good internet connection so that on those rainy days, or on downtime from being a tourist, you can log on and play on some of the best gaming sites available.
From Conwy, you can also visit the Snowdonia National Park, the coastal areas, and the Isle of Anglesey. Take a cable car or tramway up to the Great Orme and enjoy the scenic views of Llandudno Bay and Conwy estuary. Should you be looking for a holiday home with stunning mountain views, look into booking a classic country house on the outskirts of town.
Where to Stay Further South
Tenby is a popular harbour town and resort in southwest Wales and this can serve as an ideal spot to use as a base. From here you can enjoy a boat trip, some fishing, or take in the beauty of the numerous beaches. There are dramatic coastlines to be experienced along with picturesque villages and idyllic fishing harbours. Pembroke Castle and St. David’s Cathedral are two must-see destinations in the area. A great holiday home should come equipped with a bookshelf of holiday reads and board games or, if not, don’t forget to pack your own.
Wales is a country of diversity and has become a popular destination for holidaymakers. Take in a heritage railway excursion that can take you to the most popular landmarks, mountains, seaside towns, and castles. Or hire a car and drive yourself to your chosen destinations. With unique places to stay like old farm cottages, gypsy caravans, or vintage railcars, Wales is an exciting place to visit with so much to see and do.
So, depending on your budget and length of stay, let your imagination run wild as you make some bookings for holiday homes in Wales. Not only will you discover the rolling hills and atmospheric scenery with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but you will also realise that Welsh people are some of the friendliest folk on the planet.
