Wales - a perfect last minute destination

Being just over 2 hours from London and an hour from Manchester - Wales is perfect for weekend and mid week breaks. Choose from great destinations such as the Wye Valley, Carmarthenshire countryside, the Pembrokeshire and Cardigan Bay coastlines or Snowdonia and the surrounding countryside.



There's plenty to do whilst on your Welsh break - Walk some of the famous 'All Wales Coast Path' for spectacular coastal views, hike up Snowdonia and experience Wales from the very top or if a more laid back approach is what's required why not just relax on one of our award winning beaches and soak up the sound of the waves breaking onto the shoreline.



Many people that book last minute prefer a short journey especially if only coming to Wales for two or three nights. Pretty much all of our Country is accessible by car within 3 hours if you are based near the Welsh borders, the M4 corridor or along the M5 from Bristol up to Manchester. Even the far reaches of the west coast of Pembrokeshire can be done in just over 3 hours from Swindon.



Our last minute properties offer great value for money and can often beat Bed and Breakfast prices when four or more guests are holidaying together for a few nights or more. Out of season prices can often start at less than£6 per person per night - based on 8 sharing for 7 nights, so even if you only want to stay 3 nights it can cost less than £40 per person per night based on 8 sharing.
