Escape to the country – book a beautiful rural retreat! Choose from cosy country cottages, exquisitely converted farmhouses and Mediterranean-style fincas bursting with character.
Rural retreats provide the perfect setting for total relaxation. See our holiday cottages in Cornwall, the Cotswolds and the Lake District, or find a cottage with a mesmerising backdrop in Snowdonia or the Scottish Highlands. Further afield, explore the tranquillity and native wildlife in France, Italy or Spain from your own gite or trullo.
Some of our 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.

Although this apartment was advertised as having wheelchair access, the bathroom was totally inadequate for anyone with mobility problems. The bath is very high and impossible for my friend to get int… More
I always discuss with new guests the limitations of the flat with regard to wheelchair users - we are on the ground floor and it is quite easy to access the flat and great for those with limited mobility to watch the passers by and boats etc in the bay - however we are not a disability flat, we have only standard width doors etc. and yes the bathroom is difficult for those who have no ability to walk but we have provided grab rails and the bathroom is large enough for a wheelchair to get into.
The previous guests advised us the microwave was broken and I immediately ordered another one. My caretaker provided one of his own for the guests to use so they would not suffer without one and when my new one arrived he replaced it at the next changeover so as not to disturb them. The keysafe was not known to be broken and when we checked it it was working properly but it has now been replaced for security.
“The Perfect Getaway” We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the apartment had undergone a complete refurbishment between booking and arrival. The Complex is situated right on the beach. It's a low rise gated development, with nice gardens.

I am so pleased that overall you found Puffin provided you with an excellent, clean and comfortable base. The little barbecue picture was taking in Pittenweem at west Braes.

Fresh seafood is available in abundance from the stall in the summer months. Strange this is the first time in over 70 odd guests that have commented about the view from the property. I will however make this more clearer. Thank you for reviewing.
