Unusual rural retreats (11)

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.
