Why enjoy a 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.

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. 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 

Get closer to nature staying in some of the most secluded and beautiful parts of the UK. Whether you're spotting birds of prey in the Highlands of Scotland or feeling the sea breeze in your hair in Cornwall, spending some time in the great outdoors is truly rejuvenating - and our farm cottages and country accommodation is perfectly located in the heart of these stunning landscapes.
