Top 5 Holiday Cottages on the Wales Coast PathPublished on 16 Jan 2022 by Gwion Llwyd
The call of the sea, stunning coastal landscapes, and beautiful beaches on the doorstep. Check out our Top Five Holiday Cottages on the Wales Coast Path.
Winding its way around Eryri (Snowdonia), Pen Llŷn (Llyn Peninsula), and Ynys Mon(Anglesey), the Wales Coast Path is the first footpath in the world to follow a country’s coastline in its entirety.
Walking this path in North Wales – exploring the edge of the land as it jags, sweeps, rises and falls – is one of our greatest pleasures. From the taste of the sea on our lips to the pull of the breeze in our hair, it ticks all our ‘stimulating-the-senses’ boxes.
The calls of gulls, waders, and waves is the soundtrack of freedom, relaxation, and fun. And as if that weren’t good enough already, it’s often the soundtrack of fish and chips, and ice cream, too.
From its official start and finish points – Chester in the north, and Chepstow in the south – the Wales Coast Path covers a distance of 870 miles. In North Wales it is a showcase for some truly outstanding landscapes, from wooded estuaries and sandy coves to rugged cliffs and stacks.
Thanks to our unique mountains-meets-coast geography, you’ll be accompanied along the path by a spectacular mountain backdrop. Expect soaring views of Eryri as you wend your way around.
If you’re looking for a great place to base yourself for a brilliant walking holiday in North Wales, or just fancy a room with a spectacular ocean view, our Top 5 Holiday Cottages on the Wales Coast Path is a great place to start.
