Retiring to Wales

Thinking of retiring to Wales – or Cymru (in Welsh)? Who can blame you! The physical features of Wales make this a uniquely gorgeous part of the world. It has 2,700km of glorious coastline, five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including the first to be designated in the UK – the Gower Peninsula, and three National Parks – Bannau Brycheiniog (Formerly the Brecon Beacons), Snowdonia and the Pembrokeshire Coast – that’s 20% of the country! As well as buzzing cities like Cardiff and Swansea and a legendary history, including 600 castles. This is all on your doorstep with our retirement villages and retirement properties for sale in Wales.

Why choose a retirement home in Wales?

Things to do in Wales

Whether you choose a retirement village in North Wales or South Wales, you’ll always find plenty to explore. Wales has a long, proud history, from ancient castles and ruined abbeys to industrial canals and coal mines. Visit Caerphilly Castle, the second-largest in Britain; be awed by the imposing 13th century Conwy Castle, or go deep underground at the Big Pit National Coal Museum. Learn more about local history at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, and archaeology, botany and geology at the National Museum, Cardiff.

You’ll be seriously spoilt for natural beauty too. Famed for its walking routes and hidden gems, including Cathedral Cavern in Cumbria, Wales provides the perfect place to enjoy some of the top days out in the UK. Explore the great outdoors of Snowdonia National Park, with its mile upon mile of hiking routes, steam trains and scenery that varies from rugged windswept mountainsides to soft sandy coves. The Pembrokeshire Coast also offers world-class beaches, nature reserves and quaint seaside towns. Visit puffins at pretty St David’s – the UK’s smallest city.
