Rural retreats (1190)

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.

In this instance, new damage was found by our caretakers on changeover day and there was considerable discussion about this with our guests. Ultimately, to ensure good customer relationship, the deduction made was refunded to them. We and our caretakers are meticulous about preparing our house for rent, including checking before and after for any wear and tear and breakages, to ensure that our guests have a fantastic experience at our house. We of course always welcome constructive guest feedback.
