Our Top 20 Best Rural Welsh Getaways

6 November 2020

For many people, Wales is the epitome of rural heaven.  

After all, this is a country that’s characterised by vast stretches of green, sheep-dotted fields, pretty chocolate-box cottages, winding country lanes, and red kites swooping through huge skies.

(We don’t know about you, but we’re ready to don our wellies and get stuck in!)

To give you a tempting taste of life in rural Wales, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite fresh-air-filled getaways.

As they say in Welsh, “mwynhau!” (enjoy!)
