Pembrokeshire crowned Wales’ most desirable luxury staycation spot


Contributing to the win, Pembrokeshire boasts a modest population of 123,360, notably featuring 7 five-star hotels, 5 Michelin Guide restaurants, two five-star golf clubs, and 14 luxury spa and wellness centres.

Setting a precedent for other destinations, Pembrokeshire provides three hiking trails and 13 National Trust locations. These include the Colby Woodland Garden and the stunning St David’s Peninsula, hailed as ideal places to soak in local heritage and natural beauty.

An added historical gem is the Tudor’s Merchant House, where one can journey back to life in the 1500s. Following in second place is Ceredigion, notorious for being one of Europe’s prime cheese-producing regions.

This region is an excellent spot for outdoor adventurers prioritising luxury during their travel escapades.

Anglesey earned the third spot, particularly shining for its outstanding number of five-star hotels, fusing comfort and luxury with breath-taking Welsh landscapes.

Notably, four Welsh staycation spots make it to the list when considering all British locations. These rank joint sixth, ninth, thirteenth and fourteenth in the index.

Wales flaunts its allure across Britain twice in the top ten for the highest density of luxury spa and wellness centres per population, with Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion leading the pack.

The Defender Destinations Index rightfully identifies the Lake District as the finest British upmarket staycation location for its intriguing mix of tranquil population, top-tier amenities and unparalleled natural beauty.

A critical analysis of these indices provides vital information to travellers and locals alike.

Packaged within quaint populations, these locations house a mix of Michelin-rated restaurants, top-tier golf clubs, wellness retreats, scenic trails and historical National Trust sites.

Taking you off the beaten track, this comprehensive index is a tool for travellers seeking luxury in a setting of serene natural beauty, with Pembrokeshire earning its crowning glory as Wales’ ultimate upmarket staycation destination.
