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.

We were made so welcome by Gigi and Neil and were treated more as friends than visitors, nothing is too much trouble for them.

Thank you so much for your comments. In the Studios we gave priority to the provision of a hob, oven, toaster and fridge. Although a microwave is very convenient, the hob and oven also provide flexible opportunities for heating and cooking food and also for grilling. A larger freezer compartment would be ideal too. When changes become required in the future, we will of course take your comments into account.
