Crisp autumn days and cosy cottage fires – Just 8 weeks until Christmas!

What better time to plan a short break away in Wales, before the start of the Christmas rush. Autumn is a magical time of year and the colours in the Welsh hillsides are amazing – the leaves have turned many shades of yellow, gold and red, the sunshine turns the bracken to burnished bronze, the dark green hedgerows are dotted with red berries … perfect weather for going for a long walk.  After your walk, all you want to do is snuggle up in front of a roaring fire with a steaming bowl of cawl and some freshly baked bread.

Best of Wales has cottages in all over Wales where you can enjoy the glorious colours of autumn and come home afterwards to a real log fire or wood burning stove. For further information visit
