Useful information to find places to stay along the path
There’s lots of different types of accommodation along the Wales Coast Path to suit all tastes and budgets.
What we can’t offer
We don’t have a list of all the accommodation along the entire length of the Wales Coast Path. This is due to the changing nature of accommodation provision throughout the year.
We do not endorse or recommend any individual businesses listed on this page.
We are unable to provide help with organising a visit to the path.
What we can offer
We have instead, compiled a list of useful websites where you can find accommodation along the coast. It is not intended to be a complete list, more of a place to start looking for accommodation. The list is based on the sections of the path. It has information on websites aimed at visitors and locals about where to stay, eat and drink in the area.
There’s also an option to get a company to book your accommodation and arrange baggage transfer – got to our Help with Carrying page for a list of providers.
You can use the interactive map to see where the path goes to help you plan your stay.
