Rural short breaks (6561)

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 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.

Thank you for that lovely review of Hillcrest cottage ..it is very true that this is the quieter part of the Cotswolds, known as the "undiscovered Cotswolds". We have beautiful hill and valley scenery ,so that around every corner is something different... perfect for walks with loads to see.... but yes one of the best views around is from Hillcrest cottage! There is so much to do and see locally because we are in between 2 villages and a town with the award winning Farmers Market, that I hope all my info with photos in the cottage, helped you make the most of your stay. Thank you again for your review and we would love to welcome you back one day. Kind regards Tricia

We are so very glad you loved your stay at Hillcrest Cottage-that means I have done my job! We dont ask for reviews ( unlike many cottage owners) so that is even better when you have taken the time and trouble-Thank you. We know we are priviledged to live in such a beautiful & quieter part of the Cotswolds and to share those STUNNING VIEWS with Hillcrest Cottage. I do try to make it home from home beyond the practical things of our "special" cooker, etc, with the finishing touches.This includes make the childrens bedroom feel welcoming too ... happy children means happy parents. Today the beautiful views of autumn trees in the sunshine, beckens for me to tend the cottage garden before winter really sets in ! Thank you once again for your review.
