Dylan's Distraction

Dylan's Distraction, Plum Guide home in Wales

Dylan's Distraction, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Dylan's Distraction now: from £200 per night From the cream Aga in the huge flagstone kitchen to the sheep frolicking about in the surrounding fields, this home is filled with bucolic charm. Set in North Wales, the cottage bears all the hallmarks of an old farm building, including sprawling gardens, wood-burning fireplaces and beamed ceilings. The three lounge rooms mean there's an abundance of space to either curl up together or have some alone time – with a smaller TV room for little ones to hide. For something a little more energetic, the games room has a foosball and ping pong table, while walking trails can be found leading in all directions from the home. Bedrooms are simply done, with classic white walls and wooden furniture, though the real draw is the beautiful countryside views from the windows. On warm days, get out into the fields and hike, or bag your space on the picnic table for glasses of wine and barbecue meals. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Silver Fish

Silver Fish, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Silver Fish now: from £200 per night You could describe Conwy as a cute cluster of cobbles and cottages, quite the tongue twister but there's no description more apt. And this home personifies that – opposite the heritage building Plas Mawr, and down a quiet one way street just round the corner from the bustling high street. Everything within town is within a ten-minute walk, whether you're heading for sunbathing at the beach or nipping out for a chippy tea (the fish here is fresh from the marina). Conwy is right on the edge of Snowdonia national park which is full of outdoor activities. But you might just want to spend your nights indoors, relaxing in pristine and stylish surroundings. Whether you're throwing wood on the fire or enjoying the night sky in your courtyard, it's impossible not to feel at home in this coastal abode. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Charm Of Conwy

Charm Of Conwy, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Charm Of Conwy now: from £200 per night Set within the walls of historic Conwy, this cottage is a gem for couples wishing to explore the wonders of North Wales. Of course you can’t miss the iconic castle with its towers and moat, but the World Heritage town has plenty more to offer. From fine dining and boutiques to cosy pubs and independent cafes, there are hundreds of ways to enjoy this unique corner of Wales. Around the coast, you’ll find sandy beaches and windswept cliffs – a boat trip will give you a dose of sea air and the best view. Conwy is on the edge of Snowdonia national park where you can enjoy hiking, cycling and white water rafting through the dramatic landscapes. Afterwards, warm up in front of the stove with some complimentary prosecco before you retreat to your king size bed for a great night’s sleep. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Welsh Cakes

Welsh Cakes, Plum Guide home in Wales

Welsh Cakes, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Welsh Cakes now: from £200 per night With five bedrooms, a long sycamore dining table and luscious green lawns, there’s no excuse for not inviting the whole family for a trip to this Welsh farmhouse. The 16th-century building is full of historical details – look out for the old baking oven, chapel benches and even a coat of arms on the ceiling. Kids and teenagers will be glad to know they can escape to the den, complete with toys, bean bags and flat screen TV. There’s even a games room, where young and old alike can get competitive playing table tennis and table football. A short drive will take you to Denbigh, with its ancient castle walls and bustling art scene. You can also head to the long sandy beaches of North Wales, or pull on your hiking boots and enjoy a stunning walk through the Vale of Clwyd – it is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, after all. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Bala Bolthole

Bala Bolthole, Plum Guide home in Wales

Bala Bolthole, Plum Guide home in Wales

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
