About Rural Retreats

Rural Retreats* focuses on quality rural properties in order to offer its customers a home-from-home in a country setting.

So, if you are looking for a luxury holiday home, whether it's a castle in Ireland* or a lighthouse on the coast of Cornwall*, Rural Retreats probably has just what you are after.

The company has been operating since the mid-1980s and has systematically searched the length and breadth of the UK to find the best luxury holiday homes out there.

It now has over 600 beautiful properties on its books, many of which are dog-friendly. There is also a special selection of holiday homes that cater specifically for families with young children, while for those that are less mobile, ones with no staircases.

And, if you are after something for a special occasion that will accommodate your extended family or friends, it has that too, with manor houses, halls and stately homes that can sleep more than 20 people.

The holiday homes come in all shapes and sizes from those of historical interest including one Grade I and several Grade II listed properties, through to modern barn conversions, no fewer than 14 lighthouses and even one converted water tower.

The majority of homes are on or not far from the sea, notably along the south and east coasts of England*, but if your preference is for something in a more pastoral setting there are over 80 properties in the Cotswolds* and over 35 in Norfolk*.

Why book with Rural Retreats?

The key feature that distinguishes Rural Retreats' from most other holiday home and cottage providers is that all the properties are appointed to the highest standards of comfort with high-quality furniture and fittings, and bathroom and kitchen facilities on a par with those that you might be familiar with at home, some even with saunas, Jacuzzis or hot tubs.

Each home has also been professionally photographed and meticulously documented to enable you to make an informed choice about which one is right for you.

In addition to a fine set of photographs, some property details even show floorplans, so you can see the exact layout. There is a map to see its precise location plus details of attractions and nearby amenities. Plus, you can read reviews from previous visitors.
