South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.

The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David's Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.

In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.

South West Wales has spectacular coastline, unspoilt countryside, thrilling activities and fascinating places to visit, making it one of the UK's most appealing holiday destinations. Pembrokeshire, on the South West tip of Wales, is a spectacular coastal region, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park takes in the entire coastal strip - the only national park in the UK to be wholly coastal in nature and for good reason. The coastline is stunning! Neighbouring Carmarthenshire is known as the 'garden of Wales' and home to the National Botanic Garden. Visitors can explore the rich heritage and culture, myths and legends, with spectacularly sited castles and picturesque market towns and the area is a paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers, with the Red Kite a common sight soaring over the countryside. Cardiganshire in the north boasts dramatic clifftop scenery overlooking Cardigan Bay and a haven for wildlife and pretty traditional Welsh seaside towns such as Aberaeron, the home of the famous Welsh cob and where one house in every four is a listed building. National Trust places to visit include the beautiful Bosherston Lily Ponds, Barafundle Bay, Colby Woodland Garden and the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby. Other attractions include the smallest Cathedral City in the UK, St Davids, many pretty seaside resorts, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail extending 186 miles from north to south and Oakwood theme park.

    Made enjoyable...

    The cottage is in a lovely location and near a cycle/footpath to the coast. Our local NT manager was very helpful - the toaster broke down on our first morning and he delivered a new one that day

    Made enjoyable...

    The location and atmosphere of the cottage was beautiful and rural, yet still accessible and not too far from the town of Aberaeron which had all the provisions we could have needed. The welcome pack personally addressed to myself was very nice, and my tea-drinking friends very much appreciated the ornate crockery set. The ability to step out the door and onto a self-guided walk using the information pack provided was very helpful and simple. I also loved the fact that the garden was informally bounded by two rivers, although during the heavy rain periods the garden did start accumulating large puddles, stretching up towards the house as time went on. Fortunately, once the weather had calmed, the flooding receded quickly. The wood-burning stove was an experience I have not often enjoyed, and I am certain that my city-dwelling friends have never. It was a really nice touch being able to sit in the evenings with the fire on.

    Made enjoyable...

    Sound of the river (though near flood-level!) soothing Kind notes and goodies from the caretaker, Nick Easy access to walks. Would like to have had access to the NT property, too, but we visited over Christmas and it was closed. Woodstove Chance to cook and eat together Accessibility to the ocean and interesting near-by towns for the coldest, wettest days The Welsh people we met were incredibly charming and helpful. My sons (ages 21 and 27) were quite avid about Sion Evans self-serve 24/7 access gym in the local town. Loved the National Botanical Gardens and the castle Cennen. More highlighted suggestions, perhaps?

    Made enjoyable...

    The welcome tray and the fact that the light was on was so lovely when we arrived. The property was exceptionally well restored and clean and comfortable. It was such a wonderful setting too. The NT mansion was local and wonderful to explore. The condition of the building was excellent. The standard of the fittings, design and finish was superb. Everything was of such a high standard but cosey and welcoming like a home from home. Nothing to add as it was excellent.
