One thing is for sure, Wales is a country with a proud sense of its identity and heritage. This makes Wales an interesting and appealing country for a break away.

Self catering accommodation in Wales is varied and there are small cottages for couples and large ones for families or big groups. Some have added extras like four poster or king size beds.
