Holiday cottages in North Wales

Beyond the sweeping valleys and quaint villages of the south lies North Wales, an area typified by dramatic mountains, towering waterfalls and the cobalt shimmer of the Irish Sea.

In this wild landscape you’ll stumble across hidden, slate grey villages, built from the stone that sustained the region for so many generations. The remarkable Isle of Anglesey is fringed with secluded coves, while the picturesque town of Llanberis lies at the foot of Snowdon, the country’s tallest mountain. Stunning beaches, jaw-dropping vistas and thriving local traditions, North Wales is a truly inspiring destination.
