holiday cottages on the coast in wales

As a Mum myself, I know how much my boys love going to the beach even now they are that bit older. Whenever we are on holiday, we do like to stay near the coast in the UK, regardless of the weather - we invest in shortie wetsuits for the boys so they don't get too cold - and off we go for the day, normally with a picnic. One of our favourite places to holiday in the UK as a family is Pembrokeshire in west Wales. The coast there is simply stunning & the coastal paths are wonderful ways to drink in the amazing sea views. We also found numerous sandy beaches that weren't crowded & some almost felt undiscovered. Before I had kids, I visited both the west Wales coast around Aberystwyth, an incredibly popular destination for visitors & also the north coast with a day trip across to Anglesey, I know why "Wills & Kate" loved living there! But I will let you discover why for yourself.
