Anyone hiring a rental property in Wales will be amazed and delighted by the spectacular natural beauty which awaits them there. The scenery is incredibly diverse, ranging from pretty fields and meandering rivers in the east, through to the spectacular peaks of Snowdonia (including Mt. Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales and second highest in the UK) and the rugged moorland of the Brecons. With stunning coastline bordering three sides of Wales, it’s little wonder that many well-known seaside towns, including Rhyl, Prestatyn and Aberyswyth are located there. Tranquil lakes, thundering waterfalls and rocky passes are all dramatic features of this landscape.
As you would expect, many visitors to Wales are avid walkers, climbers or cyclists who want to explore the inviting landscape more. Self-catering accommodation is a popular option for active types, who enjoy the flexibility a cottage of their own can give them. Water sports enthusiasts benefit from opportunities for sailing, surfing, kayaking or swimming on the Blue Flag beaches which are plentiful along the shoreline. Appropriate equipment and instruction can be easily obtained locally, so if you’ve never tried canoeing or have always wanted to give rock climbing a try, Wales is an ideal location in which to do so.
For those who prefer a more relaxing break, Wales offers plenty of opportunities for photography, bird watching and studying the local wildlife. Cottages to rent are often located in remote areas, making them an ideal base from which to see the animals in their natural environment. UK cottages allow you the opportunity to see creatures at dawn and dusk, when they are at their most animated. Coastal boat trips to see dolphins, porpoises and other exciting marine species are readily available. These are appreciated by people of all ages and often remembered with pleasure long after the holiday is over.
The rich history of Wales is reflected in the wealth of castles, churches and other monuments to the past which form a key part of the landscape. From the castles of Conwy and Caernarfon, built by Edward I as part of his campaign to secure Wales for himself, to the poignant reminders of a once flourishing mining industry, history enthusiasts will be overwhelmed by the rich treasures of a bygone age which are readily on show.
Wales isn’t just a land of the past. A walk down the high street of one of the thriving towns will reveal a superb blend of independent shops, original craft outlets and inviting restaurants. Visitors will be impressed by the cosmopolitan ambience found in Cardiff, Bangor, Swansea and Aberyswth as well as the superb theatres, clubs and other entertainment to be found there. Many people find cottages to rent are a superb solution to their accommodation needs if they are attending one of the numerous events held in one of these locations.
Cottages for rent in Wales provide access to some of the most diverse and inviting parts of the UK. This part of the country incorporates a rich selection of activities and pastimes which enable everyone in a holiday group to pass time pleasurably. Many people find they go back to Wales year after year, as there are always fresh attractions waiting to be discovered.
