Whether you’re looking for something quirky, beautiful or just straight up homely, we’ve trawled Airbnb Wales to find some of the best places to stay. And, if you’re looking for something a bit more boutique, check out this post for some of the most amazing places to stay in Wales.

We were genuinely pretty amazed at what we found. No spoilers, but the creativity and imagination that has gone into the listings below is quite incredible. So, if you’re visiting Wales from abroad, or looking for an amazing Welsh staycation — this selection of beautiful getaways below will be sure to help you get back to nature.

The Hobbit House – Pengenffordd, Powys – Sleeps 2

The Hobbit House - Pengenffordd

Yep, an actual hobbit house.

The house sleeps two and comes equipped with a wood-burning cooker and views aplenty. It’s just a stones throw from Hay-on-Wye – and with a pub across the road it’s a pretty dreamy spot. The Brecon Beacons are within easy reach and a spot of canoeing on the River Wye should be high on the agenda.

Just make sure you don’t wander up onto the roof by mistake.

The Jetstar – Redberth, Pembrokeshire – Sleeps 4

The Jetstar - Redberth

No, you’re not seeing things.

Host Toby has converted this ex-luxury jet into an Airbnb for up to four guests. There’s a bedroom in the style of a ships cabin, plus an Xbox with flight simulator games in the cockpit. Quite likely the coolest Airbnb in West Wales!

It’s not far from Tenby, Saundersfoot – and some of the best beaches in Wales. Of all the Airbnbs in Pembrokeshire (if not Wales), this has to be one of the most creative.

Little Pudding Cottage – Cambrian Mountains – Sleeps 4
