Welcome to Wales

Great mountain ranges, lush valleys and ancient castles

Farming communities are the very heartland of Wales, where old traditions live on and Welsh is still spoken in many homes. From the gentle greenery of mid Wales to the distinctive landscapes of the National Parks, the Welsh countryside brings a choice of scenery - and outdoor activities - and right to the farmhouse door.

Escape the ‘rat race' for a break in the Welsh countryside. Escape to the country and stay on a Welsh farm.

Farm Stay Wales' members open their homes to provide top quality B&B and self catering holidays. With superb traditional Welsh farmhouse breakfasts, unforgettable experiences and equipped to the highest standards.

All Farm Stay Wales farms are inspected and quality assessed under Visit Wales's grading scheme, or those operated by the AA.

Popular towns here include picturesque Fishguard, walled Tenby and St David's, whose 12th-century cathedral lies concealed in a hollow to hide it from predatory eyes.

To the south, the Brecon Beacons National Park brings variety and there are attractive little towns like nearby Hay-on-Wye, a world-famous centre for second-hand books.
