Lodge holidays in Wales

There’s a persistent myth around that it rains all the time in Wales – and a myth it certainly is. In fact, a recent study showed that Rhyl, up on the north coast, is actually one of the driest seaside towns in the UK. That said, other studies have labelled poor old Cardiff as the country’s wettest city – so perhaps we should settle on saying that the weather can be a little unpredictable.

With that in mind, a lodge break makes an excellent option for a holiday in Wales. Direct access to the outdoors means you can make the most of the open air on a fine day (perhaps taking your morning coffee out onto the deck, or cuddling up by a firepit for an evening of stargazing) but having solid walls creates a cosy atmosphere even if the clouds do open.

Like the idea of your own little lodge for a Welsh break? Read on for our top ideas on how to pick the place for you.

Where you should stay in Wales


  • Lodges and log cabins are great choices for a family holiday – having your own self-contained space can feel like a real luxury in comparison to a cramped hotel room, and even minimal kitchen facilities are most handy if you’ve got picky eaters or don’t want to eat out all the time. Pembrokeshire is a popular pick for family holidays – and with good reason, because it’s packed with attractions like Folly Farm Adventure Park and Oakwood Theme Park (as well as all the lovely beaches, of course).
  • Pembrokeshire draws a lot of attention, but it doesn’t have the monopoly on excellent beaches. If you’d like to stay near the Welsh coast but steer clear of the crowds, try neighbouring Carmarthenshire (including the huge sandy stretch at Pendine) or Ceredigion (home to friendly little Aberporth and the dolphin-spotting hub of Cardigan).

  • Wales is well known as top walking territory – and that also means it’s a great place for taking a dog on holiday. Dog rules vary from site to site, so just make sure you book a dog-friendly lodge before setting off with your pet in tow. In terms of area, you could settle somewhere near the Wales Coast Path or around Snowdonia – or think about Mid Wales spots like Welshpool and Knighton, for exploring our pick of the best Powys walks.

  • Whether you’re looking for somewhere to soothe post-hike muscles or just fancy treating yourself, it has to be said that a lodge with a hot tub is a very fine idea. Look out for luxury lodges if you’re planning a romantic getaway with your beloved, and maybe think about basing yourselves near somewhere like St Davids or Abergavenny for lots of lovely places to eat out while you’re there.

  • Sturdy, weatherproof lodges are splendid options for an outdoor stay outside of the main summer season – and indeed many of our lodges in Wales are open all year round. Autumn, for example, is a wonderful time to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park at its most colourful, and crisp winter days will allow you to head to Gower hotspots like Rhossili without too many other people around.

What you can do in Wales

  • If you’re after a bit of adventure on your Wales holiday it has to be Snowdonia – as well as all sorts of hiking options, the national park has places to go downhill mountain biking, inland surfing, wild swimming, underground trampolining, ziplining across rugged landscapes… Climbing Snowdon/Yr Wyddfa is something of a rite of passage (and it’s accessible for kids too), but there are plenty of other mountains around if you want something a bit less popular – try Carnedd Llewellyn or the Glyderau peaks for a change of scenery.  

  • Wales was the first country in the world to plot a coast path around its entire coastline (all 870 miles of it), and it’s well worth including at least a section of it on your break. From gentle ambles around resorts like Tenby or Llandudno to remote strolls around Anglesey and challenging cliffside scrambles around Fishguard there’s something for everyone along the way. 

  • Castles are everywhere in Wales, and they make great days out, whether you’re into reading up on all the history, taking sunset pictures of atmospheric ruins or letting the kids play at being knights for a while. Caernarfon and Conwy castles in North Wales are a couple of the best preserved; down south, put Caerphilly and Pembroke castles on the agenda.

Here’s how

All of our Wales lodges and log cabins have their own features and character – and Pitchup is designed to make it easy to find one that suits you. You can start by using the filters to choose the features that matter to you (perhaps a play area for the kids, or somewhere you can have a campfire), use the map tool to choose by location, or enter dates into the calendar to find everything with availability.
