Click to book Green Fortunes now: from £200 per night Totally alone in the countryside, this charming cottage dates back to the eighteenth century – and you really feel it, like you're living in a gorgeous slice of history. The living room and bedrooms are decked out with wooden furniture and subtle colour accents, making for a warm, inviting atmosphere to come back to after a day spent wandering the countryside. When the weather is fine, make the most of your quaint surroundings by throwing open the windows and letting in the fresh country air. The location is remote, but you won’t be cut off from the world – you can drive to Machynlleth in just a few minutes, and there's several golf courses an easy drive away – and further afield lies the rugged beauty of Snowdonia, a hiker's dream. History and hikes, a stunning combination in this secluded North Wales hideaway. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Salt-Kissed Tides now: from £200 per night Known for its sandy beach and seaside charm, Saundersfoot is a lively holiday destination full of cheery pubs, charming eateries and quaint boutiques. Just up the hill, only a twenty-minute walk from the harbour, you'll find this breezy bungalow. Cool and contemporary, it's an excellent spot to call home during your stay on the Pembrokeshire coast. The whole household can hang out in the open living area, watching TV in front of the fire or playing a game around the dining table. When the weather is nice, throw open the bi-fold doors to flood the room in sunlight. Home chefs will love preparing meals in the glossy kitchen and hosting barbecues in the garden, and as the evening draws in, why not grab a glass of bubbly and head to the deck out front to watch the sun set over the bay? Tenby, with its pastel cottages, historic town walls and kilometres of sandy shores, is only a short drive away and well worth exploring, or simply wander down to Saundersfoot and spend your days relaxing by the sea. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book The Cartshed now: from £117 per night This old cart shed dates back to the 17th century, and though the ancient stone exterior and high wooden beams are a photogenic reminder of its heritage, there’s nothing dated about the cool, lime-plaster walls and stylish interior. Bright and contemporary, with pops of sunny yellows and decorative tiles, this two-bedroom home ensures your stay in the Welsh countryside is filled with comfort. You’re in the middle of some truly excellent rambling routes like Three Castles Walk and the Offa’s Dyke Path, and history buffs will relish a day out to local castles and structures even older than your home. The surrounding area is a mountain bikers paradise with Bike Park Wales and Black Mountain nearby. After spending the day tramping through the wilderness or touring tea rooms, ease into the evening bundled up in the courtyard stargazing or relaxing in front of a good film in the cosy living room. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
Red Kite Perch
Click to book Red Kite Perch now: from £200 per night This home on a west Wales working farm is the perfect getaway for those seeking fresh air, activities, and plenty of open space. Start your day off with a warm cup of coffee in hand while you take in the coastal views from the raised garden, before heading off to explore nearby Aberystwyth. The Cambrian Mountains are close by and offer plenty of outdoor leisure pursuits, including hiking, cycling, and fishing. Maybe you’ll spot a kite on your adventures as they swoop and skirt overhead. After a day out in the fresh air, come home and spend some time in the garden’s wooden barrel sauna, bound to reinvigorate and refresh. Finish the day off with some family time indoors, catching up in the vibrantly tiled kitchen or lounging on the corner sofa in front of the french doors. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Bala Bolthole now: from £200 per night This cosy bolthole-for-two near Bala will have you forgetting about the outside world in seconds. Though with rural walks, national parks, lakes, castles, rivers, waterfalls, market towns and heritage railways nearby, we expect you’ll be spending most of your time outdoors exploring this adventurous region of North Wales. Bala’s lake (Llyn Tegid) is 10 minutes away by road, and at four miles long, it’s the largest freshwater lake in Wales. Pack your swimmers (and a picnic) as this is an excellent spot for a dip. Other activities in and around Bala include fishing, kayaking and white water rafting. Footpaths and cycling routes also take you high into the lesser visited Penllyn mountains within Snowdonia National Park. The cottage is the perfect antidote to activity packed days. Head into the garden and the views over meadows and farmland will instantly calm your busy mind. Local pubs and shops are a five minute drive away so although it might feel remote it’s not at all isolated. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
