Family Holidays in Wales

Keeping the children entertained and occupied is a key requirement of a family holiday. From beaches, to theme parks, castle visits to pony trekking along the beach, Wales has plenty of outdoor and indoor attractions to keep the children engrossed during all weathers.

A staycation in Wales means you and your family can start the holiday without any airport delays, strikes or lost baggage. Wales is only a little over 2 hours away from many of the big U.K cities, so you’ll be there before you know it.

Beaches are always a firm favorite with children and adults alike. With hundreds of clean quiet beaches Wales is the perfect destination for a family holiday.

A record 45 beaches and five marinas in Wales have been awarded a Blue Flag status this year. Best of Wales are glad to announce that 17 of our luxury self catering cottages are within a stone’s throw to some of the beaches featured in the 2010 Blue Flag list. These include a cottage in Amroth, Pembrokeshire; cottages in New Quay, West Wales and in Cricieth, Abersoch and Benllech, North Wales.
