A Better Class of Property

At Coast and Country Holidays, we have carefully built up a portfolio of cottages across Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Gwynedd and the Wye Valley to reflect our high standards. We have taken great time and trouble to identify exactly what type of cottages and in which locations, what standards and equipment and most importantly what prices make our customers want to holiday with us year after year.

When you book a cottage (either online or on the telephone with us), you can pretty much rest assured that you have booked that particular cottage and will not have to wait for a reply from the cottage's owner/s - as you do on many of the 'Book direct with the Owner' websites. Our system saves you time and in most cases our prices are comparable.

Many of our guests return several times a year, sometimes for their main Summer holidays and again for out of season breaks. Our philosophy is driven by the desire for our customers to enjoy comfortable holidays, returning frequently and recommending us to their friends and family.

Highest Quality

With Coast and Country Holidays you don't need to worry about standards - all our properties are inspected by our local team.

You can book with confidence safe in the knowledge that we are just as anxious, if not more so, that nothing should upset that well deserved break.

Our aim is to make you feel at home as soon as you enter our cottages. All properties are thoroughly cleaned and checked before occupation. The owner or caretaker may call on you after your arrival to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your property.

All year round bookings and enjoyment

In Wales the time of peak demand and prices are July and August, therefore we suggest booking early whenever possible.

During the winter months and early spring you will find amazing offers helping make a second or third holiday an attractive proposition.

Many of our properties have log fires and central heating (included in the rental) which means that they are just as comfortable whatever the time of year you choose for your break or holiday.

Value for Money

Our competitive rates encourage high repeat bookings and attract many new holidaymaker's. We are able to do this by achieving a much longer booking season on our properties.

It's very easy to make bold statements about quality and a lot harder to live up to them! However our high percentage of holidaymaker's who return year after year can't be wrong! We believe that our high standards and sensible value for money prices deliver an unbeatable combination for an enjoyable holiday.

Personal Contact

We consider personal contact with the owners of cottages and our holidaymaker's as essential as actually taking the booking calls. We are always delighted to help with any queries and pride ourselves on having all the information you might ever need about each and every property.

You can call our experienced local team for additional information - they have personally visited many of our cottages. We continually add information to this website - new cottages, new articles about the area and new photographs.

We have also been heavily involved in the campaign to enable our local telephone exchange to supply Broadband to the local community.

Supporting Charities

During 2012 we supported 'Save the Children' at the Hay Festival by sponsoring a stand.

From a Save the Children representative..

Thank you again for your sponsorship and support of the 'Secret Garden' pop-up tea party at Hay Festival, run by South Hereford group.

In summary the event was a great success:

  • Net profit to Save the Children is over £1,700
  • Save the Children Trustee, Alex Duncan popped by while he was at the festival. He was thrilled to learn of your company's generous support and popped in after seeing advertising at the front of the venue. He stayed for food and had long chats with the volunteers, commenting on how professional it all looked and how delighted he was that Save the Children had such high visibility and presence at the Festival.
  • The volunteers estimated that in three days, the team served approx 500 people and that approx. 10-20,000 passersby would have seen our front of venue advertising (over 80,000 people visit the festival over 10 days and we were on the only throughfare to the festival site).
Info about Save the Children fund in the Chittagong Hills

We support a variety of charities and have supported Save the Children for over 20 years and have also been highly involved with the Women in Wales Luncheon - an annual event organised with the sole purpose of raising money for Save the Children. The work of Save the Children began over 90 years ago, helping families living in poor mining areas of South Wales.

The organization has grown and is now internationally recognized as one of the leading aid agencies across the world. Today people often imagine that poverty only affects developing countries, sadly this is not true. In Wales and the UK many children still live in poverty with children growing up in families unable to afford the basics, like heating and decent meals.

Save the Children works around the world as well as at home, protecting the rights of children, working in emergency situations, providing education and a safer environment for children.

Recently one of our team was invited to go to Bangladesh to see first hand some of the work taking place there.

Over the last two years many of our guests have kindly made a donation to Save the Children when booking a holiday (unfortunately something many children will never experience).

Thanks to your generosity we have already raised and sent £35,000 to Save the Children to help with projects.

We are also active supporters of the Women in Wales lunch which has been running and supporting Save the Children for over 20 years. The Luncheon continues to grow and is now regularly attended by over 450 women every year. You can find out more here...

We have also supported the following local charities:
