Tal y Braich is the perfect location for seclusion and Welsh charm, situated in Snowdonia and close to the Carneddau Range, this cosy cottage has a wood burner and charming features such as a Welsh slate floor. This cottage is perfect for summer gatherings, with a patio area for outside meals - you’ll want to spend every minute of your holiday soaking up the beautiful view.

Perfectly situated for exploring the local mountain range, from the cottage you can head straight to Tryfan, this peak is recognisable by its classic pointed shape and rugged crags. If you wish to continue your outdoor adventures then there are lakes for canoeing and kayaking and Plas y Brenin (the national mountain sports centre) is situated locally.

For those wishing to head a little further afield there are fun activities for the whole family including ‘Zip-world Adventure’ with its ‘Bounce Below’ activity, experience the caves in a brand new way! There are several local National Trust properties, including Penrhyn Castle a 19th Century castle which has spectacular surroundings. There is also much to explore at Bodnant Garden, which is a world- famous garden, home to national collections and champion trees.

Things to see and do nearby

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.
