Top 5 holiday cottages to enjoy a town stay this WinterPublished on 27 Nov 2023 by Amy Greenwood
Looking to book a town stay this Winter? Somewhere you can enjoy a bit of history, culture, local food and a spot of retail therapy? Then look no further. Wales is known for its beautiful countryside and miles of stunning coastline, but it also has some lovely, often overlooked, towns just waiting to be explored.
Winter is the perfect time to book a town stay, with less visitors than in the summer months, restaurant reservations are much easier, shops and cafes quieter, and town centre parking restrictions are often relaxed. And if you’re planning to bring your four legged friends with you, you’ll also find that dogs have unrestricted access to most beaches, unlike during the summer season.
Here at Dioni we’ve selected our top five town centre properties for the perfect winter break…
For a stay in the heart of a medieval town, this boutique three bedroom holiday cottage in Conwy is the ideal accommodation option to explore this fantastic area of North Wales.

A real gem of a property, this stunning house overlooking the river in Llangollen is deceptively spacious and makes the ideal base for a family holiday.
