Rural retreats (10873)

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.

Delighted that adults and children all had lots of fun on site whether it was in the house, in the games room, on the tennis court or up on the hill. We are particularly pleased that you discovered the local walks - many of which start from the farm. All the roads in our area are now limited to 40mph so that cyclists and walkers can make the most of our landscape. Perthshire core paths have a wonderful interactive on line map detailing the local walks - try the squirrel hut walk at Redmyre next time!
