This really is a very nice holiday cottage in lovely surroundings and very quiet and peaceful. The owners need to address some minor issues but none of these would not deter us from going again. Crickhowell is a great little town, but to walk in, you must take the footpath by the river, turn right on the main road and the entrance is about 100m on Read morethe left. All the pubs have very nice real ale. We did a very enjoyable walk from the 'Cracking Walks' book in the cottage. The weather was very kind! Hide

Not as totally private as you may hope as the caretaker as nice has he may be kept walking around the edge of the garden. No umbrella for shade as a south facing garden. If you are a dog owner there is no walks from the property. It always involves a drive. Although fantastic walks out of Crickhowell in every direction.

We simply loved our week at Hollyfield Cottage and have already booked to go for the same week next year! It was so comfortable, quiet, peaceful and the garden ideal for a dog.

This is without doubt the best cottage we have stayed in the area. The housekeeper and his wife are lovely. The location is stunning with mountains all round.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Be warned however, that you cannot go for a walk anywhere from the property and especially not into town. The website describes the cottage as Crickhowell Town. This is very misleading. It is a mile into Crickhowell, half of which is along the A40 with no footpath so not safe to walk. You will have to driveRead more everywhere. Area is beautiful and perfect for walking and hiking. Caretaker and wife are lovely and most helpful. Bring a corkscrew! Hide

Home to three national parks, three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Britain's smallest city, Wales is a wonderful destination for a staycation in the UK. Bordered by golden sands and surf-battered cliffs, and filled with dramatic peaks and valleys, this beautiful country is a real magnet for those who love the outdoors.

Climbing, hiking, mountain biking and wildlife watching are just a few of the activities on offer during holidays in Wales. And then there are the castles, over 600 to be exact, so you could visit a different one every day for a year and still not see them all! Add to this a string of award-winning beaches, cosmopolitan shopping cities like Cardiff and Swansea, as well as a host of thrilling attractions, and it's easy to see why Wales is so special.

North Wales

Surrounded on three sides by water, with the enchanting Isle of Anglesey at its rugged tip, North Wales offers an incredible base for your break. Head to the Llyn Peninsula to reveal sandy shorelines and secluded surf breaks, or enjoy a bucket and spade day out at a traditional seaside resort, such as Llandudno, Barmouth or Abersoch.

Further inland, you’ll find the Snowdonia National Park, home to one of the biggest reasons to visit North Wales, if not the highest, Mount Snowdon - easily accessible thanks to a train ride. North Wales is packed full of rich heritage too, with the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Harlech, Caernarfon and Conwy Castles, and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal.

South Wales

From the lakes, waterfalls and mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park through to the winding rivers of the Wye Valley and the breathtaking beaches of the Gower Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, South Wales is a feast for the eyes. Tread the Wales Coast Path for epic views over turquoise seas, explore the Glamorgan Heritage Coast which includes the pristine sands of Rhossili Bay, or try some water sports at Mumbles on Swansea Bay.

If you fancy a challenge, see if you can reach the summit of mighty Pen y Fan, or delve deep underground and uncover the secrets of Dan yr Ogof cave. And that’s before we even mention the beauty spots of Llangorse Lake, the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark and Llanthony Valley.

West Wales

Encompassing the counties of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, as well as the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, West Wales is a spectacular peninsula. If you’re looking to spot dolphins, seals and puffins, and experience some of the cleanest waters in the country, then this is the place.

Wander the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, hop aboard a boat trip to the wildlife sanctuaries of Ramsey, Skomer or Skokholm Islands, or visit the Cistercian monks of Caldey Island. For a beach day, lounge on the soft sands of Barafundle Bay or stroll through the charming streets of Tenby, Laugharne or St Davids. And after all that sea air, venture inland for a hike in the Cambrian Mountains, the Brechfa Forest, or the Towy Valley.
