The term ‘hotel’ is used with abandon in Wales, and may refer to anything from a pub to a castle.Bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodation in private homes is plentiful, and is often the only option in smaller towns and villages. Some of the ﬁnest and most family-friendly B&Bs are in rural farmhouses, used to the muddy boots and large appetites of walkers, cyclists and climbers. Guesthouses, which are often just large converted houses with half a dozen rooms, are an extension of the B&B idea. In general they’re less personal and more like small hotels, but without the same level of service. For longer stays, self-contained weekly rentals are popular. Options include traditional stone farmhouses, tiny quaint cottages, gracious manor houses and seaside hideaways.
