Want to getaway? Need a change of atmosphere? Something relatively cheap and cheerful? How about renting a cottage...Wales perhaps...or maybe the South of France, the option is yours.

These same questions swirled around my mind the summer of 2013, until I decided to do something about it. Instead of the usual searches; where I spend a significant amount of time looking for holiday trips to New York, Seychelles and Istanbul, which are far too expensive for my price range - I opted for a humble cottage abode, where I can lay my head, I gave a try.

Upon researching where I would rent my cottage, I wanted somewhere out of the city, I wanted rolling hills, countryside and fresh air. The South of Wales became my chosen destination, Llanelli to be more specific, on a beautiful farm named Mwdlwscwm Farm.

Inside the Cottage

I decided to drive there, saving more money and creating a new experience for myself. The drive was nice and calm, the beautiful weather, the sun shining fiercely permitted me to wear length shorts and a shirt. A couple of hours later and I was inside of a lovely and warm cottage, ready to relax for the weekend ahead of me.

During my time in South Wales my partner and I visited the sandy shores, coastlines and hillsides, taking in all the beauty and pristine air that Wales has to offer.

The owners of the cottage were very hospitable and informative; kindly writing the directions of popular beach fronts and places to eat on a piece of paper for me to drive to.

Inside the cottage was warm and cosy, humble decorative furniture alongside an electric fireside gave the cottage a welcoming appeal.

All in all my stay in South Wales courtesy of was unforgettable and refreshing, I would certainly return, and will indeed book through the website, which proved to be reliable and efficient.

This sounds great. Definitely the sort of break I'm looking for at the moment.
