In the Land of Song, ‘mush’ is a term of endearment; rugby is more of a culture than a sport; and there are more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world – there is plenty to see beyond the Three Peaks. Shaped by sea-salt breezes and inland snowfall, Wales has coastal paths leading to country hikes and mountain summits overlooking sandy beaches. The wild, windswept landscape inspires poets such as Gillian Clarke, who writes of ‘the white trees and the flash of sea’, and haikuist Paul Chambers (‘moorland path/the sun mining/foxglove scent’). It’s no surprise that the great outdoors is such a source of pride for locals, especially those who invite guests to experience it through a stay at their property. Many of the country’s loveliest homesteads are close to National Parks and well-mapped nature routes, and more often than not you’re welcomed with homemade Welsh cakes (but likely no Wi-Fi). These are the most wonderful Airbnbs in Wales to book when adventure is back on the cards.
