After something a bit different for your next rural retreat?Take a break from the norm with our range of quirky holiday accommodation. We’ve got the lot: rustic shepherd huts, cute caravans, glorious converted chapels, unique cottages and more.
Whether you want to lose yourself deep in the countryside in a cosy log cabin, bed down in a peaceful poolside windmill or take in the sea views from one of our off-beat coastal lets, we can help make your escape to the country truly extraordinary.
For UK stays, try the grandeur of a castle in the Scottish Highlands or vertical living in a West Country treehouse. Or, to keep your feet firmly on the ground, consider a luxury yurt in the Peak District. Your search for unusual holidays in the countryside could also take you further afield: try troglodyte life in a warren-like Spanish cave house or check in to a charming stone trullo in Italy.
“Secret escape” Have stayed here many many times over the years. Its a magical spot full of peace and quiet. The mobile home is warm and draft free. Has everything you need for holiday getaway. At the end of the garden path you can take a beach stroll
“Perfect for a quiet break” Just returned after a 3 day break with friends over New Year. Well kitted out kitchen with everything you need. Comfortable lounge area. Good sized bedrooms. Good location 5 minutes from A9, with easy access to forest walks,
