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.

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.

The cottage is at the back of Camminetto's Italian restaurant. As you would expect, there is an extractor fan but we have never ever heard it in 8 years! We have checked with our neighbours on both sides and they have also said that they have never heard any fan noise. We have only ever received positive feedback regarding the smells produced by the restaurant because there are only ever pleasant smells. Many guests book a table at Camminetto, based on the wonderful aromas which are produced!
