If you have never been on holiday Wales, book a self catering cottage for two in the border country for a weekend break and enjoy a taste of Wales. Once you have seen the simply lovely countryside and been out on the hills you will want to return to discover what else Wales can offer in Pembrokeshire, Snowdonia or Mid Wales.
The scene on the left is from the Welsh countryside near Presteigne, Knighton and Kington, just over the border with Shropshire in England. The Offa's Dyke footpath in this area, runs through some of the loveliest scenery in Wales, from south to the north coast. Walk perhaps part of the way to appreciate the beauty of rural Wales.
Couples have some of the best opportunities for relaxing holidays because as two adults they can please themselves and are not restricted by children. A rented cottage holiday in Wales allows couples good quality holiday accommodation with a good deal of privacy and freedom to come and go as they wish. The added freedom of being able to explore Wales and return to their self-catering accommodation at their own convenience adds to the pleasure of a holiday. It especially suits people who are happy to prepare their own breakfast, enjoy lunch out wherever they visiting that day and are happy with the flexibility of a pub meal in the evening, a takeaway or just a sandwich.
Yes, there are sheep absolutely everywhere in Wales but also wild flowers galore and stunning views.
