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 lastminute.com 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 www.cottages4you.com 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 ¾ 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 www.cottages4you.com was unforgettable and refreshing, I would certainly return, and will indeed book through the website, which proved to be reliable and efficient.
