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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a positive review of your stay at Lavender House and I'm so pleased that you all enjoyed the birthday celebrations.
Thank you also for your feedback on the check out time. We would always try to offer flexibility where guests request a later check out time, particularly when there are no new guests immediately due to check in on the same day. However, as I am sure you can appreciate, Lavender House is a huge house to clean in between bookings, taking a minimum of eight hours and we do need the time to get everything ready and perfect for the next set of guests.
I do hope that we can welcome you back to Sheringham again in the not too distant future.
