Rural retreats (21921)

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, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for your suggestions - when I installed the wifi the 20GB data was sufficient for the usage of my guests. However the increase in the use of on-line devices is placing a strain on that limit so I will be migrating to an unlimited data package this winter in time for the new season. As the internet is provided via satellite, data is much more expensive than telephone line systems, however I recognise that more of my guests do need to keep in touch with family and their businesses so the additional investment is necessary. We do have a maintenance plan for the road and this takes place in the spring. During late summer it shows the signs of wear so needs extra care. I do appreciate that you recognised that it's a shared road but I am very active is ensuring the maintenance is not neglected. I'm pleased to hear so many positive comments about your stay so I'm grateful that you have taken a few moments to share your experience. Many Thanks. Steve
