Wales is well known for its mountains, coast and countryside and for being a family self-catering holiday destination. From many parts of England it is quite possible to jump in the car and drive to Wales for a short break or longer stay. The Welsh road signs and distinctive language all help make Wales that bit different and special. Don't worry though, wherever you go you are almost guaranteed that people will speak English to visitors!
Although a traditional family holiday destination and particularly appealing for family breaks, Wales can also be a good choice for romantic breaks and active self-catering holidays. Families may opt for stays by the coast where paddling, beachcombing and sandcastle building can be enjoyed. Spending time by the sea is equally romantic when it comes to breaks for couples. Wales has so very much to offer for active breaks. In the Welsh mountains there are ample opportunities for hiking and mountaineering. Self-catering walking holidays can be a popular option with the many mountain and coastal paths to discover. White water rafting, diving and canoeing are other activities on offer in Wales as well as the more traditional options of fishing and golfing.
