Wales is a beautiful part of the UK that is home to vast expanses of unspoilt countryside, making it ideal for a walking holiday. Renting self-catering accommodation is the best way to experience the natural delights of Wales, as you can wake up to peace and tranquillity and incredible views just outside your window, and you can relax in the evenings after a challenging walk in the comfort of your private cottage, watching a film or listening to music with your loved one.
There are several beautiful parts of Wales that have brilliant walking trails and mountains to climb, including Snowdonia National Park. Home to the tallest mountain in Wales, Mount Snowdon, there are also countless stunning lakes to walk by, and plenty of wildlife to spot! Within Snowdonia itself there are nearly 1,500 miles of public footpaths to explore, so you can spend hours soaking up the incredible scenery.
Another lovely part of Wales to visit for a walking holiday is the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and is home to some of the most spectacular coastline in the UK.
