Wales is a beautiful country with so much to see and do with many natural delights on offer. One natural wonder is the tallest waterfall in England and Wales, Pistyll Rhaeadr, which falls 240 feet in three stages. Pistyll Rhaeadr is named in “the Seven Wonders of Wales” which is a poem created by English visitors to Wales to chronicle some of there favourite Welsh attractions during their short break in Wales.

If you have already been lucky enough to have seen Pistyll Rhaeadr or just don’t fancy a trip to see the waterfall then perhaps St. Winefride’s Well will be more appealing. St. Winefride’s Well, known as the Lourdes of Wales, is a holy site and is the oldest pilgrimage site still in operation in the whole of the UK. Legend has it that the waters can achieve miraculous cures for those who have drunk the water.

The most famous of all the natural wonders in Wales has to be Mt Snowdon. The mountain is the highest in England and Wales and has been popular with climbers and tourists for centuries. Even if mountain climbing isn’t your idea of a holiday the beauty of the mountain and the Snowdonia National Park is well worth a trip to see.

The Pembrokeshire coastline is one of the most beautiful coasts not only in Wales but in the whole of the British Isles. The picturesque coastline is made up of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, tranquil islands and quite coves. The area has become increasingly popular in recent times thanks to the creation of the Pembrokeshire National Park and many Pembrokeshire cottages providing accommodation for holiday makers.
