Craving big spaces and wild landscapes? Then come to Wales, and stay in one of our beautiful manor houses. Each house is perfectly suited to a holiday with friends or family, or to celebrate a special event. Wales holds a special place in our hearts, redolent with memories of childhood bucket-and-spade holidays, on wide, sandy beaches with barely any other people.
We remember staying in big houses with assorted aunts and uncles and cousins, and playing outside until the sun went down. The lovely thing is we can still do that now (all be it in more luxurious surroundings). In fact, there’s nothing nicer than renting a house for a big family party, where you can all stay together, and do what you want to do, whenever you want to do it. Our properties in Wales are available for exclusive use, and are all in beautiful, private locations.
Our Welsh Collection has some of our loveliest large houses, in gorgeous countryside. The coast is within reach (as is anywhere in Wales), and so are the mountains. Wales offers a tremendous wealth of things to do, and opportunities to try new things. As well as the usual coast-walking or hill-walking Plas Dinam, for example, offers trail-hunting on horse-back, or Llanfendigaid recommends trying the Zip World Titan (if you’re mad enough).
The food in Wales has undergone a transformation in the last decade or so. Although you can still buy fish and chips in practically every large village, you can also eat local produce such as beef from Welsh Black cattle, Welsh lamb, moules and cockles from the Irish Sea.
All of our houses can recommend caterers for use during your stay, or you can cook the food for yourselves in the large, well-equipped kitchens.
Incidentally, if you’re planning on getting married, and are looking for a wedding venue in Wales, then do look through our list. Our houses offer amazing experiences and a very personalised event: well worth considering.
A Word From Edmund
Wales is a great place to hire a big house for a holiday with family or friends: it’s a country to find yourself in, to reconnect with what matters. We’ve all got memories of summer holidays exploring Welsh castles and endless beaches – why not make some more?
