Remote Luxury Hideaways in Wales

Wales; home of the poets, the rising cut chasm of Snowdonia, the deep arced valleys of green and the wild coast with its furious Atlantic swell. With its mystic druid history, its unfathomable language, its rooted Celtic stories and its unsurpassable beauty Wales is the perfect remedy for the soul. From climbing the craggy hills of the Black Mountains to surfing the wind-swept coast of Abersoch, soaking up old fashioned seaside charm in Llandudno and slipping in and out of the quaint and cozy pubs dotted across Pembrokeshire, for those seeking the ultimate weekend escape seasoned with luxury, these remote luxury hideaways in Wales are sure to steal your heart.

The Laundry, Brecon Beacons

The beautiful Beacons is a countryscape of soft yellow grasses swaying beneath a blue sky, gentle rolling mountains, shimmering blue lakes and tiny cobbled clad villages nestled deep in the valleys. At The Laundry you can immerse yourself in the 14th century feel of pure romance. Wooden beams adorn the high ceilings, arched glass doors deliver sweet garden views, a traditional wood burning stove crackles and a huge soft white bed invites you to sink down. The design is ultimately chic and contemporary heightened by the rustic cottage feel. There is no better way to unwind then to spend days reading beside the fire, walking in the hills and losing yourself in the charm of rural life. Close by you can find the Michelin starred Walnut Tree Inn and the vintage village of Llanfrynach.

Strawberry Wood Barn, Black Mountains

Hunker down for sweet summer nights lost in the shadows of the Black Mountains at Strawberry Wood Barn. Remote, wild and truly beautiful you will adore every second you spend in these two inspired converted barns. Trundling along a dirt track surrounded by scores of farmers’ fields and not a soul in sight you are sure to cozy up away from the crowds. A creamy country kitchen offers dream surroundings for rustling up something special to enjoy on the terrace with majestic sunset views across the hills where lonely sheep stand like statues. Squishy armchairs beside a dancing orange open fire, a huge French style dining table, sink down tubs and elegant beds bedecked in soft wool blankets and pristine sheets are surely the epitome of a luxury hideaway.
