Best of Wales
Very much part of Britain, yet exotic and dripping with mystery and legend, Wales is one of the most beautiful playgrounds Britain has to offer. Catch it on a good day, when the sun is beaming and the clouds are sparse, and you might forget you're in the UK at all; indeed, with its impressive range of stunning beaches, valleys, countryside and thriving cities, it's obvious why it's a huge holiday destination. It has a phenomenal 870 miles of coastline, studded with coves and caves, cliff drops and cliff edges, sandy beaches, dunes and roaring waves, seen most impressively in the Pembrokeshire National Park. Moving inland, there are the iconic South Wales Valleys, Brecon's legendary Beacons (recently voted one of the best places in the world to view the night sky), and the idyllic upland pastures of the Borders. There's a definite divide between North and South. Up north, the landscape is rugged and sparsely populated, overlooked by the mighty mountains of Snowdonia, and the vibe more foreign and remote. In contrast, South Wales is a diverse mix of blissful coastal villages and large thriving cities like capital Cardiff and its rival Swansea: it's softer and more accessible, yet still scenically spectacular by the standards of much of the UK. Both regions are home to some of the country's most idyllically located glamping sites and holiday cottages, as well as some fabulous boutique B&Bs and hotels, charming inns and restaurants with rooms, and a selection of amazingly located youth hostels.
