Rural retreats (10928)

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.

Hello, Thank you for leaving a review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The sauna appears to be leading to some confusion recently so thanks to your feedback we've now put a note on the wall. You have to press the start button and wait shortly for it to heat up that is why it feels cold to start. With regards to the someone meeting you with a key we feel that the key safety boxes work just as well, as some people don't wish to be greeted at the end of a long journey. We do have an onsite manager there in case any problems arise and we are at the end of the phone too. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back soon! Country View Cottages

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review our property we are sorry you didn't enjoy the first few days of your stay. We've since gone and addressed the issues you raised. We never market our 2 sleepers to families as they are geared up for couples. We do however supply cots if guests need them. Regarding the Wifi the signal isn't great in the cottages which is why we advertise it as being in the games room only. During your visit we changed the description of the woodland walk too. We are glad you enjoyed our 4 sleeper and hopefully will welcome you back one day. Kind Regards Country View Cottages
