Holiday Cottages for Engagements


There are few moments more pivotal in a person's life than a wedding proposal; you'll remember the moment for the rest of your life, and such a romantic situation requires a suitable level of planning and forethought. Over the years, many have begun their engagement in exotic climes or circumstances, but when it comes to natural beauty and rustic tranquillity the British countryside cannot be beat! Here at Rural Retreats we have cottages situated all over the nation, in some of the most exceptional, romantic locations possible.

A wide range of romantic retreats

In most cases those looking to pop the question are looking for a quiet, secluded couple's holiday, but others may find it easier to surprise their prospective spouse by organising a retreat for family or friends as a cover for their amorous intentions. Regardless of your ideal location, and the numbers in your party, we're confident that we'll have the right holiday cottage for your engagement at Rural Retreats!

Whether you think that the mysterious wilds of the West Country, or the lush meadowlands of the South Coast would best suit your proposal or your celebration, we have a perfect cottage available. Perhaps retracing the footsteps of the Romantic Poets in the Lake District would better suit your designs, or a bolthole in the Scottish Lowlands would allow for a better degree of intimacy with your significant other.

Beyond the selection of locations we provide, the variety of properties that we are able to offer couples is also particularly diverse. We cater to parties big and small and a wide variety of tastes. A small cottage with superb views may provide everything necessary for a romantic break for some couples; others may prefer the novelty of holidaying in a lighthouse, or the luxury of a stay in a country house!


Pop the question in luxurious surrounds

For an occasion as important as the beginning of your nuptials, you'll want to ensure that you and your significant other, as well as any other guests in attendance, will be holidaying as comfortably and luxuriously as possible.

Such concerns need not cross your mind when selecting an engagement cottage from Rural Retreats; the cottages we offer have superb facilities, some evoking the traditional rustic values and traditions of their location, while others are decked out in the latest modern appliances and furnishings. From hot tubs to tennis courts, games rooms to private gardens, we have a breadth of choice that ensures we can cater ably to all tastes.

Book your engagement holiday cottage today, to ensure that everything goes as planned!
