Retreat to the country with a rural stay in the West Country

30 September 2009

Farm & Cottage holidays offer the finest selection of hand-picked properties in superb rural and coastal locations throughout Cornwall and the West Country.

Whether seeking a holiday for the whole family or just for the two of you, Farm & Cottage have something to suit everyone – from beautiful barn conversions, luxury apartments, unique log cabins, quaint stylish cottages to funky organic farms.

Choose from one of the many properties close to the beach where the kids can enjoy playing in the sand, or stay on a working farm where they can enjoy a pony ride, feed the animals and collect their very own eggs.

If you want a romantic or relaxing retreat, choose a log cabin by a lake or a cottage with a log fire- many are just a stone’s throw from coastal or rural walks and pubs serving home-cooked food.

For a seasonal or family celebration, you may like to opt for one of the country mansions or large houses, which offer a wide range of accommodation, plus games rooms, satellite and excellent cooking facilities – perfect for entertaining.

For the added bit of luxury browse the company’s collection of properties with swimming pools, hot-tubs, games barns and enclosed gardens with play areas.

With properties sleeping 2-22 and pets welcome at over 50% of properties a true home-from home experience is assured with Farm & Cottage Holidays. For more information visit
