Rural retreats (21961)

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 so much for your kind review! We were at our villa in November 2014 and unfortunately, we also broke down (the battery had gone flat after we had left the head lights on for a full day after forgetting to turn the lights off after driving through some motorway tunnels). We called the car hire firm up, from just outside the house the signal on the Movistar network on Jane's Moto G phone was very good (3 bars)- and gave them our GPS co-ordinates. A man in a large tow truck was with us within the hour (Vas having walked up the road to meet him part of the way, as he had time on his hands). The tow truck man jump started our car and we were up and running without a hitch. We saw that Vas's Google Nexus Phone had a less effective signal. It was trying to roam all the time on the Spanish Orange network, which was not good. When Vas switched his phone manually to Movistar the signal was better(1 bar) and improved to a 2/3 bar signal as he walked 20mts up the lane above our house. We've checked with other people and older Iphones seem to have the poorest signal reception, but even these work OK when you walk up the lane above our house. Also, note that 112 Emergency Call services always work from a mobile phone anywhere around our place. So if you have a dire emergency you can just dial 112.
