Beyond the sweeping valleys and bustling towns of the south lies North Wales, an area known for its dramatic mountains, towering waterfalls and rocky coast. Stay at one of our North Wales holiday cottages and explore this special place for yourself.

In this wild landscape you’ll stumble across hidden villages, unspoilt beaches and jaw-dropping vistas. From the shores of Anglesey, the mountain of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, to the remote Llŷn Peninsula, North Wales is an inspiring holiday destination.
