Rural retreats (78)

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.

Hi Nigel, I'm really sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your trip to Scotland. Thank you for taking the time to get online and write us a review so that we can address the points you have raised. When you stayed at the castle, I agree it was basic self catering. Please be assured we did our research and priced it accordingly. I'm a travel journalist, so spend a lot of time weighing up value for money. Saying that, during your stay at the property, it was fully furnished with beds (one is antique), new mattresses and brand new high quality bedding. The sofas were recovered the month before and the freestanding cast iron 80 year old baths had both been resurfaced. The kitchen came with an integrated fridge, new kettle and toaster and all the usual utensils. The heating worked in every room and the fire in the grand hall was in full working condition. We were still waiting for our rugs to arrive, some additional art and we've just put in a record player. We added some books and lamps too. Admittedly, now that we've added those pieces, it obviously feels fuller. Your review did come as a bit of a surprise though because we've had nothing but positive feedback on Airbnb, from people who loved the area, and having the opportunity to spend time in a 460 year old castle. That's a rare find for 130 pound a night! I hope at least all of our notes on where to hire bikes, walks, eat out, local tips, and detailed directions on how to get there helped to improve your experience slightly. Once again, were sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Stef and Sim
