Welsh Events


As well as the main events given below, please also take a look at our areas using the left hand menu, where you will find details about more local festivals and events going on throughout Wales.

Wales is a genuine all-year-round destination and we have events both big and small taking place whenever you come to visit us. From well-known events such as The Hay Festival, frequented by a number of celebrities each year and The Royal Welsh Show with well over 200,000 visitors throughout its four days to the traditional county fairs and food festivals with a more local feel there are interesting events taking place each month for people of all interests from your youngest family member to the oldest! Add in concerts, art and craft shows, literary events and many others you are truly spoiled for choice.

Take a look here at some of our favourite festivals taking place in Wales this year – many are an annual event with people coming back time and time again so we would suggest you book up your cottages well in advance!

If you require any more information on the locations and how best to combine the events with the Welsh holiday you had in mind we are more than happy help and information on plenty more festivals and events can be found  on each of our six area guides. Please do send us an email, contact us through Live Chat or give us a call on 01686 628200.
