Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our selection of places to stay in Wales showcases the best owner-managed bed-and-breakfasts, guesthouses, inns and small hotels.

From mountainous Snowdonia in the North to the old mining valleys in the south, Wales offers an extraordinary range of scenery. Central Wales tends to get overlooked, which is a shame, as it contains much unspoilt landscape such as the Berwyn mountain range, its wind rugged scenery appealing mainly to walkers and upland birds.

The Brecon Beacons in the south are one of the most beautiful parts of Wales, with traditional market towns, bare hills (superb walking) and many family attractions. At their foot lies The Felin Fach Griffin, Wales' original gastropub, which has a homely atmosphere as well as great food. On the Pembrokeshire coast, Penally Abbey has views from Tenby to Giltar Point.  St Tudno on the north coast at Llandudno is a popular seaside hotel with beautiful views over the Irish Sea.

Wales also boasts some lovely coastline, not least the Gower Peninsula, which juts out from the south coast into the Bristol Channel.
