Dog Friendly Cottages in Wales

With its majestic landscapes and often-turbulent history, Wales is truly a land of beauty. The weather-beaten Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is a walker’s paradise. The 186-mile-long coastal path, that follows the very edge of the cliffs, affords spectacular views across the sea. Wales also has a wealth of cultural treasures to explore; from the many well preserved castles, to the museums and other delights to be found in the bustling cities of Cardiff and Swansea.

To the north of the country, the Snowdonia National Park boasts spectacular walking and climbing.
