August Bank Holiday Cottages in Wales

Enjoy the long August bank holiday weekend with a special break to beautiful Wales. Soak up the last rays of summer and enjoy stunning late sunsets before autumn’s crisp mornings and cool evenings start to steal in.

Stay in one of our self-catering seaside apartments, cosy coastal cottages or countryside loge retreats and explore award winning beaches and breath-taking coastlines. There’s also plenty of late summer adventure to be had, along with an array of country attractions to discover before unwinding with a well earned meal together.

Whether you just want to spend your holiday lying on the beach or you have adventurous plans to visit all of the historic sites you can fit into a single weekend, we have plenty of holiday accommodation to choose from to use as a comfortable base for your summer bank holiday break.

Outdoor Bank Holiday Activities

You can’t beat the gorgeous beach at Barafundle Bay in Pembrokeshire, the UK’s only coastal national park. Likened to beaches in the Caribbean, this destination never disappoints, especially on warm, sunny days when the beautiful blue-green water contrasts with the white sands and gorgeous clear sky.

If you have the kids with you for a family bank holiday break, there’s an array of child friendly beaches to enjoy family favourites like building sandcastles and rockpooling.

For a tour through history, take a stroll around picturesque Carew Castle with its vast mill pond, which powers the tide mill.

Visit seaside Tenby, originally named Dinbych-y-Pysgod in Welsh or “little town of fishes”. Tenby was originally established by The Normans as a fortified town. You can still enjoy the sights of the old town walls enclosing the cobbled streets and medieval houses of this pretty town. Explore Castle Hill, home to the castle that defended Tenby where a small keep tower remains.

These are just a few of the many places where you can see the standing remains of castles and structures built hundreds and even thousands of years ago. Walk where battles have been fought and where kings have lived and died, and you’ll get a greater sense of Pembrokeshire and all of Wales, too.
