Rural Retreats

Verdant open countryside, incredible coastal vistas, plunging valleys and rolling hills – a rural retreat can energise the body and inspire the mind. Here at Handpicked Cottages, we have a wide range of rural retreats, stunning countryside cottages and converted barns to give you a relaxing escape into the peace of the British countryside.

Staying in a farm cottage or rural holiday property, you will find yourself slowing down the pace and appreciating the smaller details in life, from the warmth of the summer breeze to the sound of the morning birdsong. A rural setting is the perfect place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life and what better way to do so in one of our luxury countryside cottages.

Whether you are looking for a couples rural retreat or a family farm cottage to rent, we have a great selection. Whichever of our rural holiday cottages for rent you choose, we know that you will find your perfect holiday home at Handpicked Cottages.
