Escape to Wales and stay in a cosy cottage or holiday home this Christmas for a fantastic festive break. Get away from it all or holiday together on a family Christmas break, saving you the hassle of doing the rounds visiting everyone on the big day. Discover the perfect coast or countryside base for you to enjoy the festive events and activities held in Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion in the run up to Christmas, twixmas (the time between Christmas and New Year) and New Year.
FBM have a great selection of cosy retreats for couples and beautiful homes for small families. There is also a great choice of homes and cottages suitable for large gatherings. Not only are there opportunities to holiday within the same town or village, there are even apartments within the same building. Therefore, ensuring everyone has the space they need while still being able to enjoy the break together.
Christmas markets encapsulate the festive season. Not only are they a great place to pick up locally made gifts from start-ups and small businesses, they facilitate spending time with loved ones and are the perfect occasion to catch up with old faces. Of course, they also provide the chance to enjoy delicious food and drink, listen to some merry carols and generally build excitement for the big day itself.
Attending a Yuletide market, festival or fair in West Wales is a must do on your Christmas getaway checklist and there are plenty choose from. Within Pembrokeshire there are markets at Picton Castle, Colby Woodland Garden, Tenby and Saundersfoot as well as Narberth.
There are also lots of festive markets held in Ceredigion including Aberystwyth and Cardigan. Furthermore, Carmarthenshire holds the Festival of the Senses in Llandeilo as well as a market in Carmarthen.
It’s not just the markets you can look forward to visiting during your Christmas break with FBM holidays. There are also carol concerts held throughout Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion.
Carols by Candlelight held in St David’s Cathedral is a particularly special event and the brass band at the Saundersfoot carol service is not to be missed!
Tenby hosts a pre-Christmas day Santa fun run and the Boxing Day swim on North Beach is a very popular fun event with a great atmosphere.
Wrap up in your warm Christmas jumpers (optional) and take a romantic winter stroll along the beach or enjoy a refreshing winter walk in the countryside.
Venture out with the family to visit quaint towns and villages illuminated by magical Christmas lights and displays.
Rest assured there are plenty of events for you to enjoy in the run-up to Christmas, so you won’t miss out whenever you arrive for your Christmas holiday in West Wales.
