Just show me Rural Cottages

Please find below rural holiday cottages to rent. A holiday in the countryside lifts the spirits whatever the time of year and this portfolio of rural cottages features some absolute gems. Many are traditional in style, with wooden beams and floors, real log fires and farmhouse kitchens; while others are really modern with clean, contemporary lines and the latest fixtures and fittings. Some are big, some are small and all boast idyllic settings amid peace and quiet, away from bustling towns and cities - pure bliss in today's hectic world!

Enjoy the peace & quiet of the countryside with a rural cottage

Rural cottages spring up in all kinds of places across the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland, including the magical Highlands of Scotland, the untamed landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales and the delightful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds.

Enjoy lazy days exploring the region, whether your preferred method is by car, on horseback or bicycle, or by your own two feet - relish that fresh air and feel truly invigorated! Potter around sleepy hamlets and pretty villages, stocking up with provisions from small, independent shops rather than busy supermarkets. Tempted yet? If you're the kind of person who's always rushing here and there, stop a while and savour the laid-back lifestyle of a rural cottage holiday. You'll love it - we promise!
