Cottages by the Sea in Wales

Welcome to our selection of holiday cottages to rent in Wales by the sea. Take in the breathtaking views along the Wales Coast Path, which joins the charming seaside resorts in North and Mid Wales like Llandudno and Aberystwyth (where you may just bump into the future King and Queen, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!). Alternatively, the south of Wales boasts the beautiful sandy beaches of Pembrokeshire and the stunning Gower peninsula where you can sample some of Joe’s famous ice cream, a real hit with the locals!

Or keep going until you hit the cosmopolitan capital city of Cardiff, with its bayside bars and restaurants, bustling nightlife and numerous notable landmarks such as the Castle, the National Museum of Wales and the Millennium Centre, not to mention the Millennium stadium for all those rugby enthusiasts!
