Rural Retreats in the UK - Rural Accommodation in the UK

We're all familiar with the term 'rural retreats', but not quite so savvy when it comes to the UK. Friends can suggest no end of idyllic destinations: a cottage in the South of France; a villa in Italy's Lake Garda; a sleepy Spanish fishing village. Yet our daily routines bely the beautiful country we live in, and familiarity doesn't breed contempt with diverse landscapes on your doorstep. Of course, we aren't suggesting you relive the nightmares of your grandparents' caravan. Rather, set out on a new adventure at one of our top five rural retreats instead. There's no need to spend astronomical amounts on a holiday, whether you want a romantic and secluded getaway or a beachside break with the kids. Discover the majestic mountains of Scotland, or laze away on the stunning beaches of Cornwall. After all, taking a break in the UK is about creating new memories for the whole family. It may evoke bygone days when exotic holidays were reserved for the elite, but searching rock-pools is a timeless activity, and the British sunshine continues to struggle on.
