Southern Wales is rich in ideas for day visits, weekend breaks and longer holidays - everything from great beaches, to exciting adventure sports, castles and great places to take a walk. Add to this wonderful food options and a warm welcome at all of our hotels, cottages and B&B's, and you have the makings for a great visit.

But don't take our word for it, over the last year of so we've been visited by lots of bloggers, so have a look at what they think about the area.
