Cottages in South Wales

Home to Wales' capital, Cardiff, and second city, Swansea, South Wales is great for those seeking a cosmopolitan holiday destination. Both cities boast excellent museums, great shopping and of course, fantastic sporting events.

The atmosphere and deafening cheers from the crowd in the Millennium Stadium is a truly thrilling experience. And for the Whovians among us, the Dr Who Experience is the perfect day out! But this area also has far more to offer than just city centre attractions.

The Glamorgan Heritage Coast and the Gower Peninsula, Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, are right on the doorstep of each city, with breathtaking sandy beaches and coastal walks. Head into the valleys and enjoy a day at one of South Wales' two purpose-built mountain biking centres – Afan Forest Park and Bike Park Wales. Each centre has something for everyone with trails for families and advanced bikers.

With bike hire available at Bike Park Wales, even complete novices can give this a go! And let's not forget, no area of Wales would be complete without a castle and South Wales has plenty for you to explore, from Caerphilly to Loughor.

Gower was Britain's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – and it's easy to see why! From the Mumbles, Swansea Bay and Wales's Waterfront City itself, head east along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, boasts excellent museums and great shopping, and is the venue for most of Wales's greatest sporting and artistic events.

Lesser known Carmarthenshire will surprise you with must-see places such as the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Dylan Thomas's boathouse at Laugharne, horse racing, country parks and a sandy southern coastline. Choose one of our cottages in South Wales for your holiday and you'll have all this, and more, to look forward to.
