Beach Cottages

South Wales is possibly the most vibrant and varied part of the Welsh coast and perhaps best encompasses the core of the Welsh culture. Its coastal region includes the vibrant cities of Cardiff and Swansea, as well as the historic counties of Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, all caressed by the ever changing Atlantic swell making it the ideal place for beach holidays in Wales. Whether you're a surfer, sailor, hiker, intrepid traveller or part time tourist, you will find inspiration in this dramatic coastline. There are championship quality surfing beaches, spectacular coastal paths, quiet bays rich with wildlife, bustling traditional resorts, plus you're never far away from a scenic mountain or cliff top. The Glamorgan Heritage Coast is perfect for family holidays, Swansea makes for an excellent city break, while the Gower, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire offer the most wonderful beaches rich with marine life where you'll see anything from porpoises or seals to a basking shark or leatherback turtle! If you’ve decided to rent self-catering accommodation as opposed to staying in B&B’s or hotels you’ve made a wise choice as the benefits including price and privacy far outweigh anything else. The South Wales cottages by the sea listed below include pet friendly cottages, close enough to the seafront that your hounds will be scampering about the sandy shores in no time, and family friendly cottages some of which sleep up to 8, suitable for group accommodation or two families sharing. Bookings can be made online direct with the advertiser, so check out the holiday cottages in South Wales below and start planning that coastal break in Wales today.
