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.

"Caer Beris is a truly beautiful holiday lodge site set in thirty four acres of idyllic Welsh countryside. Set on the banks of the River Irfon, just outside the picturesque town of Builth Wells, the park is surely one of the most peaceful and tranquil in the region. The park does not have the facilities of many holiday parks, but prefers to ensure all visitors can fully relax amongst the lovely flora of the park, a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of normal daily life."
There are no caravans allowed - sorry Rachel you seem to have missed something very beautiful. The 16 travellers before you had glasses half full.... Other children find the bunk an adventure, the patio is immaculate as the photos show , the grass in front is cut fortnightly and the photos also show the wild part of the garden which is deliberately kept as a butterfly haven. Yes the linen was new and fresh and perfect , yes the lounge was well stocked and comfy with free Wifi..
Yes it would be better if you could in the future manage to find something in such a lovely setting at such a tremendously reasonable price for 5 people.!!! I have no explanation for the "smells" just to say they certainly weren't there when I was. The shower works wonderfully too.
The weather was glorious when I was there just before you arrived. I managed to drive up the mountain to the fabulous lavender farm. Not to be missed. It was a real blessing. I hope you had a safe journey home.
