If you’d rather escape the madding crowd, go for a rural retreat. We’ve got farmhouses and country cottages in areas of outstanding beauty all over Britain. Fill your days exploring the Brecon Beacons, rambling across the Lake District or scaling the peaks of the Scottish Highlands.

Thank you very much for your kind words about Balvattan Farmhouse. I am sorry you didn't find your pillow comfortable. We provide quality spare pillows in the wardrobes and offer various different thicknesses, firmnesses etc. Since there were only 3 of you staying in the house, we would have been delighted for you to have tried any of the pillows from any of the other bed. I'm sorry you didn't contact me during your stay to confirm you could have pinched a pillow off another bed. We all have our own personal sleeping requirements and personally I hate poor quality pillows. I will check all the pillows which are only a year old, this weekend. If you come again, please let me know your pillow preference and which room you want to sleep in and I will ensure your pillow of choice is available.
