UK rural retreats (18)

From the quaint Cotswolds to the tranquil Lake District, we have thousands of rural retreats around the UK that will give you the perfect peaceful break.


Choose a charming holiday cottage in Cornwall, Devon or on the Isle of Wight, or find an exquisitely converted farmhouse in the Peak District or the Lakes. Snowdonia National Park and the Scottish Highlands both provide mesmerising backdrops for your stay.


Some of our UK 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.
