Great Reasons to Stay in a Great Little Place

If you’re new to Great Little Places, you might be wondering what it is that sets us apart from other holiday providers. It’s simple really! First off, all our properties are located in our beautiful home nation, Wales. Secondly, we specialise in hunting out small, independent holiday properties – great little places that offer the ideal antidote to massive chain hotels.

Since launching in 1994 we have scoured the country searching for the best of the best. Today we have over 50 member properties – a variety of quaint B&Bs, cosy farmhouses, charming guesthouses and boutique hotels that offer fantastic holiday experiences in beautiful locations across Wales. Because membership is only available via invitation, we can ensure that all properties available on our website have the official Great Little Places stamp of approval. But if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, here are a few more reasons to make a booking with us…

Warm Welcomes

One of the key criteria we look for in a potential new member property is warmth and enthusiasm from its hosts. Larger holiday establishments are often impersonal – you turn up and check in at a desk, never setting eyes on the same staff member again. Staying in one of our properties is a different story. We choose B&Bs and hotels where the hosts go the extra mile. From greeting you with a warm smile, to giving you excellent recommendations, and serving up a cracking breakfast tailored to your tastes, these hosts will deliver a truly special stay.

Stunning Settings

When selecting our member properties we look for fantastic locations. We’re inspired by historic buildings oozing with character, and situated in beautiful surroundings. Many of our hotels and B&Bs sit in the middle of sprawling private grounds; others are located right by the sea, or in an area of rolling green countryside. We’ve even got properties for travellers seeking an atmospheric city break in Cardiff.

Fantastic Food

Book into one of our great little places and you’re guaranteed a fantastic breakfast – usually complete with locally sourced eggs, sausage, bacon, and Welsh favourites such as laverbread. What’s more, our member properties often specialise in foodie experiences, from home-cooked meals to fine dining and afternoon tea. Many of our establishments operate their own award-winning restaurants, which means you can turn your Welsh escape into a delicious culinary tour.
