There are many ingredients that go into making a happy, contented family holiday and one that is remembered for all the right reasons. If you want the freedom to explore without being tied to hotel itineraries, make the choice between coast or country and want to go where a warm welcome is assured, then you should be considering a self catering holiday in Wales, or to be more specific, holiday cottages in Wales.
Croeso I Gymru is ‘welcome’ in Welsh, and you will hear it so many times during your stay here that you will be saying it yourself in no time. The Welsh are rightly proud of their beautiful country and are happy to welcome everyone who takes the trip here for their holidays. There is nothing not to like about Wales, and the miles of open space as well as some of the best beaches you will find anywhere are the ideal antidote to energetic children who simply want to be out in the open air having fun.
There are numerous benefits from renting a holiday cottage. These are spacious, comfortable home from homes that are entirely yours from the moment you collect the keys to handing them back. For the duration of your stay you have no worries about people coming in when you aren’t there, the kids clutter doesn’t have to be shifted until you are packing to come home again, and many even let you take your pets along. It is little wonder that self catering in Wales is such a popular internet search term.
There is plenty of organised fun for families in Wales in the form of the Oakwood Theme Park in Pembrokeshire, Anglesey Sea Zoo and many places to visit throughout Wales. Depending on the kind of attractions you and your family are interested in have a look online before you book your holiday cottage to give you the best idea of what is on offer in the area you want to stay in, or if you aren’t sure choose your cottage depending on the surrounding attractions. This won’t be a problem as there are cottages across the length and breadth of Wales.
The only problem you will have when it comes to choosing your cottage is which one to go for as the choice is so vast. There are small and cosy cottages ideal for romantic getaways, family sized cottages with 2 or 3 bedrooms and much larger ones if several families are holidaying together. They all come complete with all mod cons, even down to DVD players to amuse little ones when they are in the cottage.
The freedom to come and go as you please, and eat when you want, can only be achieved by going self catering, but the added bonus of a holiday cottage is that it is more than likely on its own away from others so you aren’t constantly shushing the kids, and can sit outside at night with a bottle of wine without having to worry about disturbing the neighbours. That kind of privacy on any holiday is worth a fortune, when it’s in a holiday cottage in beautiful Wales its priceless.
