Rural retreats (38954)

Escape to the country – book a beautiful rural retreat! Choose from cosy country cottages, exquisitely converted farmhouses and Mediterranean-style fincas bursting with character.



Rural retreats provide the perfect setting for total relaxation. See our holiday cottages in Cornwall, the Cotswolds and the Lake District, or find a cottage with a mesmerising backdrop in Snowdonia or the Scottish Highlands. Further afield, explore the tranquillity and native wildlife in France, Italy or Spain from your own gite or trullo.



Some of our rural retreats come complete with private pools, BBQs, Jacuzzis and real log fires. They make perfect bases for hiking, cycling, fishing, or simply enjoying the peace and fresh air of the great outdoors.

Thank you for your review and we are very sorry you experienced such a problem with flies during your stay. Previous comments in the visitors book mentioned in this review are from a guest who stayed last summer and so thankfully this is not something that happens often. The Barn is in the countryside alongside neighbouring farms and fields etc. We can only apologise for this unfortunate event and do wish you had contacted us about this problem while you were here as we would have tried our utmost to assist in resolving the situation.

Thank you for your kind comments. We agree with you too! The farmhouse is a well designed and many visitors comment on its suitability for three generations too. We often get complimentary comments about The Crown which is always well patronised by the locals too. We shall look forward to seeing you all again next year. Sadly the weather is beyond our control, but we have had a fine autumn and the trees still look lovely in their autumnal shades.
