Rent a self catering cottage in Wales
country cottages in wales Rent a country cottage in Weales, perhaps somewhere near the new coastal path that runs from Crofty in north Wales to Mumbles in the south and provides 1,400 km of unbroken sea views along its length. The beaches of Wales are superb seaside holiday destinations and depending on where you go, can be almost empty and good for family breaks. The Gower coast is especially beautiful. There are also dog friendly beaches, especially from October to the end of April, perhaps not the time for sunbathing but still very good for walks on the beach. Stay slightly inland, in the countryside for a sheltered location, a walk or drive away from the coast.
