Rural retreats (10858)

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 coming and taking the time to write a review. I am so very pleased that you have had such a great time and plan to return. In this case, I can offer you a 10% discount if you book 6 months or more ahead to time. It is helpful that you share how clean and child friendly it is. We are working on continually improving these things and we are adding a collection of items as well as toys for children. Many guests do walk to the beach and the town and find those lovely estuary walks to enjoy on the way.Thanks for mentioning the distance is short. However, it is also nice being out of the town to enjoy the privacy and quiet as well.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review.

We look forward to your return in the future.
