Rural short breaks (11)

Short on time? Book a mini break in the country! Take your pick from these short breaks at cottages, farmhouses and villas in the countryside. Perfect for long weekends away, short rural breaks let you escape to the great outdoors and recharge your batteries.



Marvel at the breath-taking beauty of the UK’s finest rural areas on your short rural break. Discover the tranquillity of the Lake District, go mountain biking in the Brecon Beacons or climb Snowdon, Wales’s highest peak.



If you have a long weekend to spare, hop over the water to an Irish country cottage or try Scotland for jaw-dropping panoramic views of the mountains and Highlands. Alternatively, you could follow the Spanish sunshine and hide away in a stylish Galician converted barn, or head to sun-baked Cyprus and choose a poolside apartment in Paphos.
