The most beautiful villages in Wales

We are happy to present our top ten of beautiful villages to visit in Wales . We consider these villages amongst the most beautiful to be found anywhere in Wales. It might be a small country, but the landscapes are matchless.

Meifod, Powys

Great fishing in the river, a smashing old pub, a lovely church. Meifod isn't chocolate box pretty, but has a beauty more ingrained than that. An honest sort of beauty that is to my mind more captivating than many of England's "thatched cottages and BMWs" erzats villages.

 

Conwy, Gwynedd,

Ok, Conwy gets a lot of visitors but the castle is staggeringly beautiful. A true gem of a place and one that does Wales real credit. Undoubtedly, Conwy is on of the most beautiful villages in the whole British Isles.

 

 

Bosherston, Pembrokeshire

Bosherston is a lovely little village in the Pembroke Coast national park. There is so much peace and natural beauty to enjoy here. Not spoilt, just perfect.

 

Aberdovey (Aberdyfi) Gwynedd

As villages go, it rarely gets cuter than Aberdovey. Immaculate houses painted in bright beachside colours attract lots of visitors who enjoy the simple pleasures of the town and the many watersports options available to those who want a bit of excitement too.

 

Portmeirion, Gwynedd

The village was the work of one man, an eccentric artist who wanted to bring all the world's beauty to one spot. The result is an entire village of italianate architecture that is simply breathtaking. The cult TV series 'The Prisoner' was filmed here in the late 1960s and the delightfully odd vibe of the place is still beguiling. Come and stay at the hotel and see for yourself why a derangement of the senses can be the perfect tonic.

 

Criccieth, Gwynedd

The delightful 18th century high street is kept spic and span, with great displays of flowers throughout most of the year. The romantic castle ruins are just up the road and wild walks in the surrounding countryside add up to a first rate package of delights.

 

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Isle of Anglesey

Ok, sorry about that. We all love LLanfair PG round here. Not only is it the longest place name, but it also means "quiet and beautiful village" so it deserves its place. Anglesey as a whole is definitely a place that should be on your list of places to visit in Wales. It is also a great place to hear Welsh being spoken (or if you are really lucky, being sung). The Welsh language is a treat to the ear as the island is a treat for the eye.

 

Horton, Gower

The village itself is small and pretty, but the real delight is the bay at the bttom of the hill. Oxwhich Bay is wonderful. Soft sand at one end, great rockpools at the other and clifftop walks leading round to three cliffs bay, one of the (official) most beautiful views in Britain.
