From the sandy beaches of the Gower Peninsula to the mountains of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park, there's so much to explore on a holiday in South Wales. Why not book a break at one of our South Wales holiday cottages?

With pretty seaside towns, dramatic cliff-top walking routes and miles of sandy beaches, South Wales offers everything you could wish for on a holiday by the sea. Or you could head inland for a stay at a country farmhouse.

We have a wide range of places to stay, from coastal cottages in the Gower, to rural hideaways close to the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons).
