Rural retreats (70370)

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 very much for your kind words and for coming to La Colle.

It is so nice to have you stay and live in the house the way it was meant to be. A real family home. Seeing you explore and learn about the area over the past four months has been a real pleasure. The way you adapted to the vagaries of the weather this year and the surprises of country living has been fantastic. For you to be able to call The Main House your “home” says everything and justifies the years of continuous work. Thank you, and I will miss the daily football matches in the yard.
