Rural retreats (41190)

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 returning to Briar Steading for a second week with your friends and for entering in to the spirit of Briar Cottages. Fantastic to hear that you engaged with locals in Lochearnhead.

"Home from Home"

We stayed at Tauranga for a couple of days in December to escape the pre Christmas madness, and it was just what we needed.

There was a lovely welcome pack of cakes and goodies when we arrive… More

Thank you for your lovely review of Tauranga, we are glad you enjoyed your pre-Christmas escape.

We are glad you felt that the kitchen was well equipped, it is something we aim at as we know that guests want to feel as at home as possible when they come to stay.

The beach is glorious all year round but we do hope you come back to stay again in the Spring/Summer as you get a different perspective on the area in the sunshine, as stunning as it still is in the winter months.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
