Rural short breaks (14678)

Short on time? Book a mini break in the country! Take your pick from these short breaks at cottages, farmhouses and villas in the countryside. Perfect for long weekends away, short rural breaks let you escape to the great outdoors and recharge your batteries.



Marvel at the breath-taking beauty of the UK’s finest rural areas on your short rural break. Discover the tranquillity of the Lake District, go mountain biking in the Brecon Beacons or climb Snowdon, Wales’s highest peak.



If you have a long weekend to spare, hop over the water to an Irish country cottage or try Scotland for jaw-dropping panoramic views of the mountains and Highlands. Alternatively, you could follow the Spanish sunshine and hide away in a stylish Galician converted barn, or head to sun-baked Cyprus and choose a poolside apartment in Paphos.

Thank you Michael for your comments. We speak to our local fire guys when we have a problem with our alarms and it would have been nice if you had spoken to us about your concerns. Nuisance alarms are a problem for accommodation houses as guests don't like it when it happens and complain. The local fire personal are always happy to help with ideas and solutions, you happen to have stayed during one of these times, we'll continue to work on a solution.B&B's require all guests to treat each other with respect, especially in relation to noise. The guests who stayed the night you were at The Summit B&B had been asked not to work in the area that your talking about, they chose to do so (without our knowledge), which is disrespectful to you, but out of our control.We'll continue to do our best and provide the best experience that we can for those who stay with us. cheers.

When a family manages to get as much out of their holiday as you did, it really is gratifying, especially when there are teenagers involved. By making use of both car and foot, you certainly explored the local area as well as getting to enjoy a selection of the good food on offer in Galicia. We're happy that we could help towards your enjoyment through our local knowledge, although you did find the "chocolate y churros" without our help! It's also very rewarding when guests appreciate the charm of the cottage and its gardens and in our turn we appreciate the care you took of the property. Many thanks - and we trust we'll see you this way again.

Thank you for your recent review and I am pleased you enjoyed the ideal location right in the heart of Castle Douglas. There are indeed two ensuite bathrooms , one with a Spa bath and shower and the second with shower and hand basin . I am sorry you felt the bedrooms sparsely furnished but we decided our guests would prefer hand basins in the rooms rather than built in wardrobes. There is only space for parking one car in the secure driveway but plenty of space for any number of bicycles with free parking on the street outside the property and a seperate barbeque and seating area in thel little courtyard accessed via the glass door from the sittingroom. Kind regards Raewyn
