Rural short breaks (6498)

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.

In this instance, new damage was found by our caretakers on changeover day and there was considerable discussion about this with our guests. Ultimately, to ensure good customer relationship, the deduction made was refunded to them. We and our caretakers are meticulous about preparing our house for rent, including checking before and after for any wear and tear and breakages, to ensure that our guests have a fantastic experience at our house. We of course always welcome constructive guest feedback.

Thank you for the lovely review, you've captured exactly what we love about the house. We have invested in a wood store and our friend on the mountain, Bruno, fills it regularly with wood that's cut to the right size. So you shouldn't now need to chop wood (unless you want to, of course!) The Pizzeria is a wonderful part of the experience. It is staffed by the friendly locals and does great Pizzas and our favourite Calzone anywhere!

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.

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.
