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.

    Lovely location

    The woodland location was lovely. We enjoyed walking to the NT gardens next door. It was good to have a dishwasher and washing machine.

    Beautifully clean

    We appreciated the telephone call for your office informing us of the Park Run being held next to our holiday cottage during our stay. I really should have taken part but I had a very nice chat with one of the run marshalls. Booking very easy and plenty of information provided. The house was beautifully clean and and we really did appreciate our beds being made up for us and a welcome tea tray on our arrival. We left a little thank you note and gift for the caretaker/cleaner as they do a grand job especially as we were only able to snatch a weekend break. The location of the house was perfect; so quiet and ideal for woodland walks ( the bluebells were magnificent) and easy access to the beach. We plan to return for a longer break next time.

    Lovely location

    A lovely location, with just the right amount of seclusion. Short walk to local amenities and coastal walks. Ample information available if assistance was required but we were given freedom of access to the Colby Woodland Garden and didn't feel we were being watched or monitored in any way. No wi fi or phone signal, which added to the charm !!

    Really high standards

    Holiday was a prize so cost us nothing but I would gladly have paid when we saw the accommodation. Welcoming flowers, Welsh cakes and milk was really appreciated. Standards were really high and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The little touches such as a laid fire were extremely good.

    Made enjoyable..

    The location, even though the shop and tea room closed for the season on the day we arrived. The friendliness of the staff and rangers we spoke to who kept us informed of local events.
