Our Properties

At Coast and Country Holidays, we have carefully built up a portfolio of Welsh holiday homes across Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and mid Wales to reflect our high standards. We have taken great time and trouble to identify exactly what type of cottages and in which locations, what standards and equipment and most importantly what prices make our customers want to holiday with us year after year.

When you book a holiday cottage (either online or on the telephone with us), you can pretty much rest assured that you have booked that particular cottage and will not have to wait for a reply from the cottage's owner/s - as you do on many of the 'Book direct with the Owner' web sites. Our system will save you time and in many cases money.

Owners of properties on this website have been verified

Unlike Airbnb, HolidayLettings, TripAdvisor, etc... We know and also communicate with our property owners on a regular basis, thus ensuring that your booking is safe and secured.

This also helps us to organise for any little extra's or details and information which can help make your holiday more enjoyable.

Our pricing and offers are unique, and although we do list properties on other web sites they cannot match us for price and will often add extra's such as service fee's, cleaning fee's and additional booking fee's to the cost of your holiday.

Many of our guests return several times a year, sometimes for their main Summer holidays and again for out of season breaks. Our philosophy is driven by the desire for our customers to enjoy comfortable holidays, returning frequently and recommending us to their friends and family.

Highest Quality

With Coast and Country Holidays you don't need to worry about standards - all our properties are inspected by our local team.

You can book with confidence safe in the knowledge that we are just as anxious, if not more so, that nothing should upset that well deserved break.

Our aim is to make you feel at home as soon as you enter our cottages. All properties are thoroughly cleaned and checked before occupation. The owner or caretaker may call on you after your arrival to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your property.

All year round bookings and enjoyment

In Wales the time of peak demand and prices are summertime, particularly July and August, therefore we suggest booking early whenever possible.

During the winter months and early spring you will find amazing offers helping make a second or third holiday an attractive proposition.

Many of our properties have log fires and central heating (included in the rental) which means that they are just as comfortable whatever the time of year you choose for your break or holiday.

Value for Money

Our competitive rates encourage high repeat bookings and attract many new holidaymaker's. We are able to do this by achieving a much longer booking season on our properties.

It's very easy to make bold statements about quality and a lot harder to live up to them! However our high percentage of holidaymaker's who return year after year can't be wrong! We believe that our high standards and sensible value for money prices deliver an unbeatable combination for an enjoyable holiday.

Personal Contact

We consider personal contact with the owners of cottages and our holidaymaker's as essential as actually taking the booking calls. We are always delighted to help with any queries and pride ourselves on having all the information you might ever need about each and every property. Remember - we all live locally and know the properties and where they are.

You can call our experienced local team for additional information - they have personally visited many of our cottages. We continually add information to this web site - new cottages, new articles about the area and new photographs.

Community Involvement

Since Coast and Country Holidays started in 1990, we have participated in many community initiatives, as well as being active members of all the main tourism associations:

We have also been heavily involved in the campaign to enable our local telephone exchange to supply Broadband to the local community.

Supporting Charities

As a company we have supported many local charities, our particular focus has been children's charities in Wales.

We are also active supporters of the Women in Wales lunch which has been running and supporting Save the Children for over 20 years. The Luncheon continues to grow and is now regularly attended by over 450 women every year. You can find out more here...

Through Women in Wales we have donated over £40,000 to Welsh Save the Children projects eg. Eat, Sleep, Learn & Play.
In 2018 again through Women in Wales we were able to contribute to the purchase of a Baby Pod for Wales Air Ambulance.

Your kind donations when booking your holiday mean that over £40,000 has been donated to these two charities.

We have also supported the following local charities:
