Rural Holiday Cottages

Why enjoy a luxury, rural retreat with Handpicked Cottages?

Nature has a truly restorative power, bringing peace of mind and inspiration to all those who spend time in the great outdoors. The UK is home to some stunning landscapes, from mountains and lakes to sandy coves, which makes a rural retreat the perfect option for couples, families and groups. We have plenty of rural houses to rent. 

Escape for a rural retreat 

Enjoy a refrain from the hustle and bustle of the city with a rural retreat. A holiday in one of our rural houses for rent is a brilliant way to de-stress and relax. Country cottages provide the perfect respite from all the hustle and bustle!  Breathe in the fresh air, go for leisurely strolls through the countryside, or explore ancient history without the crowds and queues during your countryside break.

Connect with nature in a country cottage 

For many of us, day-to-day life involves more time looking at a screen than at the world outside the window. For your next holiday, immerse yourself in the beauty of nature staying in our country accommodation. Fabulous farm cottages or coastal castles, the choice is yours. Located in some of the most naturally stunning parts of the UK, we have everything from farm cottages in the Scottish Highlands to coastal lodges near Dorset's famous Durdle Door.
