Great Little Places to stay in Wales

Since 1994 we’ve travelled countless miles the length and breadth of Wales to seek out the very best little hotels, inns, farmhouses, restaurants with rooms and guest houses.

North Wales

Mountains, mines and marine life. Rediscover yourself amongst the highest peaks, breathtaking rugged coastline and life affirming ziplines.

Mid Wales

Mid Wales is an undiscovered gem, where the rolling countryside is dotted with patchwork fields, where the pace of life is slow.

South Wales

From the bright lights of the capital city to the rolling surf of the Gower and rugged Pembrokeshire, the South is ‘beginner’s Wales’.

You're guaranteed a big Welsh welcome

GLPs are the kind of places in which we like to stay. We hope that you get as much pleasure from discovering them as we did.

Great Little Places enjoys a reputation in Britain and worldwide as the collection of small and friendly places to stay in Wales. Small is beautiful – but such places, unlike the best hotels (which are listed in almost every guidebook), are much more difficult to find. Locating small establishments that really stand out from the huge choice is much more of a challenge – but it’s what GLP is all about.

We appreciate attention to detail and those little touches – the fresh flowers, the fluffy towels, the log fires, the well-stocked libraries – that separate the best from the rest. Another great strength of the scheme is its variety, for with Little Places you’ll find quality in farmhouses or restaurants with rooms, country inns or coastal hideaways, B&Bs or guest houses.

This wide choice is reflected in the price. GLPs range from an inexpensive £55 per night for a double room to over £290 at the luxury end of the market. But it’s value for money that counts, and we believe that you won’t find finer accommodation, pound for pound, anywhere else in Wales (or Britain for that matter).
