Rural retreats (10920)

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 that lovely review of Hillcrest cottage ..it is very true that this is the quieter part of the Cotswolds, known as the "undiscovered Cotswolds". We have beautiful hill and valley scenery ,so that around every corner is something different... perfect for walks with loads to see.... but yes one of the best views around is from Hillcrest cottage! There is so much to do and see locally because we are in between 2 villages and a town with the award winning Farmers Market, that I hope all my info with photos in the cottage, helped you make the most of your stay. Thank you again for your review and we would love to welcome you back one day. Kind regards Tricia

We are so very glad you loved your stay at Hillcrest Cottage-that means I have done my job! We dont ask for reviews ( unlike many cottage owners) so that is even better when you have taken the time and trouble-Thank you. We know we are priviledged to live in such a beautiful & quieter part of the Cotswolds and to share those STUNNING VIEWS with Hillcrest Cottage. I do try to make it home from home beyond the practical things of our "special" cooker, etc, with the finishing touches.This includes make the childrens bedroom feel welcoming too ... happy children means happy parents. Today the beautiful views of autumn trees in the sunshine, beckens for me to tend the cottage garden before winter really sets in ! Thank you once again for your review.
