Unusual rural retreats (328)

After something a bit different for your next rural retreat?Take a break from the norm with our range of quirky holiday accommodation. We’ve got the lot: rustic shepherd huts, cute caravans, glorious converted chapels, unique cottages and more.



Whether you want to lose yourself deep in the countryside in a cosy log cabin, bed down in a peaceful poolside windmill or take in the sea views from one of our off-beat coastal lets, we can help make your escape to the country truly extraordinary.



For UK stays, try the grandeur of a castle in the Scottish Highlands or vertical living in a West Country treehouse. Or, to keep your feet firmly on the ground, consider a luxury yurt in the Peak District. Your search for unusual holidays in the countryside could also take you further afield: try troglodyte life in a warren-like Spanish cave house or check in to a charming stone trullo in Italy.

The place was lovely,couldn't fault it-the only problem was it was very near the main road and not very good for dogs. The owner was very obliging and helpful,couldn't have asked for more!!!… More

Glad you enjoyed your stay and apologies that the small garden is detached at the rear of the property meaning that dog owners have to walk their dogs in the open countryside, many seem to find this satisfactory but indeed some do not, depends on the type and age of dog and the enthusiasm of the dog walker i guess.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit so much, and recognised the excellent value for money. Thanks for taking the time to post a review. I'm sorry that the bedrom heater was not working, it cuts out when covered by wet clothing but is easy to reset so its a shame that you didn't phone, I would have quickly sorted it. I'm sorry too if there was a mouldy smell, this must be very recent as two of the last three visitors have requested repeat bookings, unlikely if the lodge smells bad. I'll look into it and sort it. What you saw as mould on the ceiling is discoloured varnish, not mould, and is on my list of jobs. A timber lodge in the Argyll woods keeps me busy, and I hope you appreciated the new double-glazed windows and doors, and the new doors on the kitchen units. Looking forward to seeing you again, Mike
