Wales is a good choice for many for family breaks. There are lots of opportunities in Wales for outdoor activities which both adults and children can enjoy with the added benefit of tiring kids out, leaving you hopefully to have a relaxing evening whilst the kids sleep. Where budgets allow, there are some large country cottages in Wales with games rooms which are always good for keeping the family occupied but there are also cottage complexes which very often have shared family friendly facilities like games rooms or pools. Wales isn’t just for families though, with stunning scenery, Wales is equally suited for romantic cottage breaks.

Wales is home to three national parks. These are Snowdonia which covers both mountainous and coastal areas, the Pembrokeshire Coast and the Brecon Beacons.

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. If ratings are important to you, then look for 5 star assessed cottages or if being green is essential to you, search for a Welsh cottage with a green tourism gold award.
