About Wales

Click here for the best places to stay in Wales

If you're looking for windswept and spectacular Wales is for you. It doesn't matter is it's a dramatically buffeted coastline, rocky mountain ranges, or lush river valleys, Wales offers a myriad of opportunities for getting out into the great outdoors. Of course Wales also has lively cities, charming seaside towns and has had many thousands of years in which to build wonderful castles, historic homes and fascinating structures. And some of these have now been converted into the best places to stay in Wales.

North Wales

North Wales is a great destination for active folk, and active families are especially well catered for. As well as access to Snowdonia National Park and the Wales Coastal Path, there are also several areas classified as Outstanding Natural Beauties. Then there are the stunning beaches along dramatically rugged coastlines and rocky interiors, and also plenty of rainy-day heritage activities.

South and Mid Wales

South and Mid Wales have the main cities, Cardiff and Swansea. But also the vast mecca for walkers and cyclists that is the Brecon Beacons, parts of the Wye Valley, and the Mumbles and the Gower Peninsula - where you can find some of the best beaches, and surfing conditions, in Wales.

West Wales

As you get into West Wales you'll notice road signs changing from English above Welsh to Welsh above English. This is the heartland of traditional Wales and Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion really feel a long way, culturally, from the rest of the mainland. The coastline is tamer, with more sandy stretches, dotted with candy-coloured harbour towns, so this is great place for a unique seaside holiday.

The Best Places to Stay in Wales

For wild windswept views

  • Chateau Rhianfa in Anglesey, North Wales has been beautifully converted inside a Grade II listed, Gothic style property inspired by Loire chateaux. Overlooking the Menai Straits - with it's own private beach, and close to both the Wales Coastal Path and Snowdonia National Park, this property has 22 rooms plus three self catering cottages.
  • Llys Meddyg 'Doctor's Court' is an artistic, family-run restaurant with rooms on the Nevern estuary in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. There are just nine bedrooms. In summer there's a garden restaurant and in winter they put on huge log fires to combat the bracing weather outside.
  • The Bell at Skenfrith is a stylishly converted old coaching inn with lovely rooms and excellent food, set amid the unspoiled countryside of Monmouthshire. Relaxed and family friendly, this is the perfect spot for outdoor adventurers.
  • The Corran Resort & Spa is a converted farmhouse in a magical setting. The closest town is Laugharne, imbued with the spirit of Dylan Thomas, but you're so separated by marches that you feel a world away. There's a spa, cinema and monthly music and literary evenings to keep you inspired. And a vast kitchen garden influencing the excellent food.

For the pleasures of the coast

  • Escape Boutique B&B in Llandudno, North Wales, is a boutique B&B converted from a Victorian villa in a small, seaside town. There are nine rooms and they're all individually decorated with contemporary style.
  • The Harbourmaster Hotel in Aberaeron, West Wales, is a friendly seaside hotel with 13 rooms spread between three historic, harbourside buildings. Bright Klein blue on the outside, there's also plenty of colour inside, and the kind of views a Harbourmaster would need.
  • St Brides Spa Hotel right on the Pembrokeshire Coastal path, is slick but friendly, with all kinds of enticing sounding therapy options, a sea-facing infinity pool, a fine dining restaurant and modern rooms.

For foodies

  • Tyddyn Llan is a small, elegant Georgian country house in the remote and peaceful Vale of Edeyrnion in North Wales. Essentially a Michelin starred restaurant with rooms, this is a romantic escape on the River Dee.
  • Plas Bodegroes is another of North Wales' Michelin starred hotels. Also a Georgian manor house, it's the location, on the Lleyn peninsular, close to the beach, which is the main difference, and this also effects the menu!
  • Llys Meddyg is a family run restaurant with rooms on the Nevern Estuary, in West Wales. There are nine pretty bedrooms and walls are crammed with local art. Food comes in a variety of options (all delicious) from fine dining to family friendly and all focus on locally sourced seasonal produce.
  • Manorhaus in Ruthin, North Wales is an art gallery, meets restaurant meets boutique hotel. It's got just eight rooms, so it's intimate, but the restaurant and gallery lounge attract locals and other visitors so it's got a vibrant atmosphere. And you're in the foodie-friendly market town of Ruthin - the 'gateway to North Wales.
  • Felin Fach Griffin in the Brecon Beacons is an old inn, and now great gastropub, in the Brecon Beacons, not far from Hay-on-Wye. Close to the main road, but in the heart of great walking territory, this is a friendly and welcoming place.

For the ultimate escape

  • Y Meirionnydd is a Hotel Guru favourite. Right in the heart of Snowdonia, this former county gaol is now a smart hotel, serving great food. It's five comfortable rooms start from £75 per night, so it's also a great value option for walkers and mountain bikers who're exploring Snowdonia.
  • Ty Mawr Mansion is a remote Georgian country house close to Wales' Heritage Coastline and the Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron. Surrounded by 12 acres of parkland, inside the hotel's six rooms offer generous proportions and every comfort. Only children over 12 are welcomed.
  • The New White Lion is a wonderfully warm and welcoming retreat with a backdrop of the Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains.
  • Gliffaes Hotel is close by, but deeper in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, right by the Usk River, a fisherman's dream. This is a traditional country retreat with plush trimmings and refined rooms. As well as anglers, this is a great hotel for walkers and cyclists.
