Take in the rolling valleys and rugged mountains of Wale’s massive national parks

With a rugged coastline, stunning landscapes and mountainous national parks, Wales is a wonderful staycation destination for families, friends and couples looking to escape everyday life. From the pretty seaside towns and award-winning sandy beaches dotted along the Welsh coast to the five areas of outstanding natural beauty, Cymru could be the spot for a getaway this year. 

While there are many hotels and holiday parks to choose from, why not choose a personal and cosy cottage or try glamping in Wales? If it’s a grand country house amongst gorgeous gardens and sweeping countryside, a rustic lodge or cabin in the woods, or a snug seaside cottage overlooking a fishing port; there’s something for you at Staycation UK.

If you’re looking to get away from it all then Wales is one of the best places to take a break. Explore the rugged mountain ranges and crumbling castles of North Wales or enjoy wandering the pretty villages and towns on the South Wales Coast. Whatever your ideal trip includes, you can be sure that Cymru will tick your boxes.
