Booking a Holiday Cottages in North Wales

There has never been a better time to book a holiday cottage in North Wales, with the euro and dollar so strong it makes sense for UK residents to look for holidays closer to home and North Wales has everything you could wish for.

Many will say that you can’t guarantee the weather but actually the weather here has a good record for being bright and sunny and even if you do get a spell of rain or clouds then there are many attractions and places to visit.

Wales’ north coast has been popular with tourists since the 19th century when all the famous seaside resorts sprung up alongside the small fishing villages that were already here. The resorts of North Wales stretch all along the coast from Prestatyn in the east to Bangor and Anglesey in the West.

You will find plenty of amusement parks and attractions in Colwyn Bay, Rhyl and Prestatyn being probably the most commercialised towns in North Wales. Rhyl and Prestatyn are linked by a fabulous 6 mile beach with Prestatyn being a little less brash, surrounded by fantastic walking country throughout the heather clad mountains and hills of the Clwydian Range.

If you are looking for more Victorian charm then Llandudno is very appealing and is close by to the medieval walled town of Conwy. Both back onto the impressive mountains of Snowdonia and the Conwy Valley where you will find such treasures as the beautiful and famous Bodnant Gardens.

Bangor and Anglesey are more westerly and provide for a more serene holiday full of wildlife and natural beauty.

One of the best ways to experience all of this variety is by booking a Welsh holiday cottages which is ideal for families with young or older children. This self catering holiday takes away any worries about food and set times. As we all know, if the kids are relaxed and happy then it is always much more relaxing for their parents.

Self catering cottages make a great place for family and old friends to get together for a short break or longer holiday. You can be sure that a maid will not knock on your door early in the morning after an evening of merriment and you are free to come and go as you wish. You can have your evening meal when you are ready and breakfast be taken without the rush and turmoil of set times.

When it comes to holiday cottages, Wales offers a multitude of options; have a think about what is important to you before you book. Think about the size and the style of house you like be it apartment, cottage or farm house. Pick a location to suit you and the rest of your party and peruse the facilities on offer. Do you need a swimming pool or barbeque, if you don’t and you are booking a cottage that has these then you may be paying more than you have to. Does it need to be dog friendly? Check whether the accommodation allows this.

So if you are looking for a good value break in a location that can offer you everything you could want then self catering in North Wales is the answer. Go to for information on accommodation, local attractions and more.
