About us

Rural Retreats was founded in 1985 with the aim of making the countryside more accessible for holidaymakers and giving them the best possible choice of holiday homes across the UK.

Rural Retreats’ continuing success is based on excellent local knowledge and painstaking research, together with a flair for finding delightful and unusual properties. All of this has enabled us to build a portfolio of over 600 exceptionally fine holiday homes in stunningly beautiful locations, all available for you to rent.

When you are looking for your own perfect holiday home, our experienced and helpful staff can help to point you to the property of your dreams. Whatever you want to ask about any of our properties, there will be someone on our staff who knows the cottage or apartment at first hand.

Not only that, but our customer service is second to none. From the time you book your property, we are there for you at every stage to make sure your stay is problem-free. That’s why thousands of families trust Rural Retreats with their holidays every year – and why so many return to our properties year after year. Rural Retreats is part of Quality Holidays Assured, a group of companies with 35 years’ experience in the holiday business. Variety and originality are at the heart of the QHA offer, and so too are consistently high standards of comfort, service and value for money. That’s one more reason why Rural Retreats is a team you can trust.
