Stay in a beautiful cottage or farmhouse this coming holiday week. Choose a property brimming with a character away from it all in stunning countryside or an historic house in the centre of a bustling market town! Wales Holidays has an excellent selection of cottages and farmhouses still available during the half term week. Here are a few ideas of interesting, character cottages.
For up to 8 the farmhouse near Carmarthen is situated on the yard of a working farm and is a large house with lots of rooms so great for a family or two and the nearest village is only 1/2 mile away. Alternatively, sleeping 6 the detached 4* cottage near Llanerchymedd is reached off a country lane and centrally located for exploring Anglesey with the nearest beaches only 4 miles away.
If you are looking for a town property, consider the former toll house, a semi-detached cottage at Dolgellau. Retaining some original features and sleeping 5 in three bedrooms, the cottage is located near the centre of this historic town which sits within the Snowdonia National Park.
Surrounded by wonderful scenery, the cottage near Rhayader is one half of a C15th grade II listed longhouse, located on a farm alongside the Claerwen River in the Elan Valley. The property can sleep up to 6 and is furnished in keeping with the character of the building. Or how about this 4* cottage near Pumpsaint surrounded by National Trust land with forest walks? The two-bedroomed stone cart house is on the owner’s working farm in beautiful rural West Wales.
Couples should take a look at the 4* cottage near Denbigh & Ruthin, in the grounds of the owners home in an isolated location on the edge of the Clocaenog Forest. This hand crafted restoration of one end of a stone barn offers interesting accommodation for 2 with an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique style.
