Destination guide

Roam free on the windswept isles of Wales

Hugging the Cymyran Strait on the Isle of Anglesey in the Irish Sea, Valley is a the perfect embodiment of the traditional Welsh village. Anchored by a small main street with shops and eateries, it's the perfect base for exploring the natural wonders of Anglesey, an island of rolling green hills and coasts dotted with lighthouses. A Valley vacation rental puts you on the doorstep of a world of scenic sights, from windswept beaches to medieval castles. There's also plenty of boating, golfing, and horseback riding on hand to let you take full advantage of the fresh Welsh air.

Things to do

From the cliffs to the castles

The history of Wales is on full display in Anglesey. Top sights include Caernarfon Castle, a medieval fortress, and Beaumaris Castle, dating from 1295. Museum buffs will want to hit the 1829 prison-turned-museum at Beaumaris Gaol, or the elegant Plas Newydd mansion, which houses Rex Whistler paintings and relics from the battle of Waterloo (check out the manicured gardens and woodland walks while you're there). For wildlife encounters, head to Anglesey Sea Zoo, or the Butterfly and Bird Palace at Pili Palas Nature World. The South Stack cliffs feature a picturesque suspension bridge and a 19th-century lighthouse.

Activities

All the fresh air you could ever want

There's no shortage of ways to soak up the cool Welsh breezes at your Valley vacation rental. The hills are just begging to be explored, whether by bike, on foot (bring your hiking boots), or on horseback. There are enough golf courses to keep you busy for days, and anglers will love the two fisheries. For more fishing, head to Llyn Alaw lake, where you'll also find picnic sites and walking paths, alongside rare birds, wildflowers, and butterflies. Head to the coast for some beach walks and surfing. Adventure boat rides let you see the island from the outside.

Weather

Beat the heat in windy Anglesey

While Anglesey rarely sees weather extremes, you'll want a cozy sweater when you venture out from your Valley vacation rental. Even in the warmest months of June to September, the high temperatures are in the 60s (perfect for outdoor activities without the sweating). The winds off the Irish Sea, heavy at times, keep things cool. December to February are the coldest months, when lows can dip down into the upper 30s. Snow is uncommon, but don't be surprised if you wake up to a glittering coat of frost.

Natural features

A little bit of everything on one small island

Given the Isle of Anglesey's small size, you'll be surprised at how many different landscapes you'll encounter in just a short drive. The rolling green hills drop off abruptly into cliffs on one side, and slope down to sandy beaches on the other. Interior lakes and marshlands are home to butterflies and rare birds, plus gorgeous fields of wildflowers. Gazing across the channel to the mainland you'll get stunning views of the rocky Snowdonia mountain range. The vast Irish Sea stirs up pleasant breezes or strong winds, depending on the day.
