Holidaying in the British countryside is a truly magical way to while away some time. But how do you find the best possible escape for you and your loved ones?
Founded in 1985, Rural Retreats answers this very question! Their aim is to make the UK’s exceptional countryside more accessible for those who want to experience its many joys to their fullest.
This is achieved by conducting painstaking levels of research, combined with in-depth local knowledge and a talent for finding just the right holiday homes in the loveliest locations.
Homes like Temple of Diana: a unique retreat built in the 1760s, boasting refined classical architecture and standing proudly in Shropshire’s vast, beautiful, Capability Brown-landscaped Weston Park.
Or Sham Castle, a Grade II-listed Shropshire folly that’s perfect for a luxuriously dreamy romantic escape-by-the-lake… complete with a goodie-packed welcome hamper for impossibly scenic picnics!
Then there’s the historic Llancayo Windmill, a five-floored, six-bedroomed wonder that looks out over acres of pristine Welsh countryside and golden fields of wheat.
We’re incredibly proud to showcase such an incredible selection of Rural Retreats, and we defy you to come away from this list without earmarking at least one for a memorable future holiday.
