Rural retreats (49)

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.

"A luxurious tranquil hideaway in a spectacular setting."

My only reservation is that if yours is a short break as ours was, you do feel rather short changed by the late check-in and early checkout times, meaning you spend very little of your first day actua… More

Firstly thank you so much for your review and rating of your stay at The Far Boathouse. Your rating of 5/5 about your stay was very much appreciated by myself and the maintenance and cleaning staff who keep the Boathouse in tip-top condition. The days are so short and we are not too far off the shortest day of the year, so I completely understand your point that a 3pm check in on a dull day must have felt like you were checking in at twilight and missed one of the loveliest views from the boathouse of watching a beautiful sunset! On a bright sunny day you would have seen this spectacular sight. I also note that the 10 am check out felt too early. At the moment our maintenance and cleaning team ask that we provide them these hours between guests to conduct maintenance and thoroughly clean the entire boathouse to make sure that it is as perfect as possible for arriving guests. I will investigate further to see how it might be possible to reduce the time for maintenance and cleaning and still guarantee to uphold the quality of the boathouse for arriving guests. Thank you so much for staying at Ullswater Far Boathouse and for your kind rating and your very helpful feedback Kindest Regards Jayne
