There's nothing like a good hearty stomp across the fields and a healthy dose of country air to recharge the batteries. Leave behind the hustle and bustle for a world of winding country lanes, fields, woodlands, stepping-stone streams and wild, open moors. Walk, fish, cycle – or just sit back, relax and enjoy the silence from one of our 540 handpicked countryside cottages in the South and West.
