The Barn At Nant Llwyd – Carmarthenshire
The beautifully converted barn, situated just half a mile from the Brechfa Forest trails, has been carefully designed with dog walkers, cyclists and nature lovers in mind.
The spacious accommodation sleeps four, with two en-suite bathrooms, and a bright, open kitchen/dining and sitting room where you (and your dogs) can relax with the wood burner blazing after a day's exploring. There is easy access to several beautiful beaches, tourist attractions, and miles of stunning footpaths with panoramic views.
Eagle Brae – Inverness-shire
Using the finest Western Red Cedar logs, each log cabin has been hand-built by master craftsmen using authentic Norwegian techniques. Specially sourced from sustainably managed forests in British Columbia, Canada, the wood has an exceptional thermal performance, a beautiful grain and natural insect deterrent qualities.
Eagle Brae is set among the grandeur of some of the wildest glens, highest mountains and largest lochs of the northern Scottish Highlands. Several Munros – Scottish mountains over 3,000ft high – lie at the head of nearby Glen Affric and Glen Strathfarrar, offering the perfect challenge for energetic Eagle Brae adventurers.
Chapel Outon Farmhouse – Wigtownshire
Kath and Tim Annison extend a warm welcome to you at their recently refurbished farmhouse situated in rolling countryside on the outskirts of the Royal Burgh of Whithorn in Galloway, South West Scotland.
Warmed by the Gulf Stream, this is the ideal location for a relaxing and peaceful holiday, whatever the time of year or whatever the weather with easy access to both coast and countryside.
Exton Park – Rutland
The rural hideaway has solid deck floors throughout a spacious interior, extending to the terrace at the front and a practical porch entrance, shower room and separate WC at the rear. The tent has an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room with a log burner at the heart. Each of the three bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin and a bunk bed room) have solid wooden beds with comfy mattresses and warm duvets.
The Exton Estate is a large rural estate located in the heart of picturesque Rutland, the smallest historic county in England. The Estate is within easy reach of Oakham, Stamford, Leicester, Peterborough and Nottingham.
Burnhopeside Hall – Durham
Burnhopeside Hall is a GradeII* listed building of Historical interest, having been the home of William Hedley, Engineer. A working model of his "Puffing Billy" railway engine is at Beamish Museum (5 miles North). The original can be seen in the Science Museum in London.
The Country House provides a beautiful setting for a peaceful and relaxing stay for business or holiday travellers. It is surrounded by 18 acres of gardens and woodland, which merge with the Estate's farmland and woodland, providing 475 acres of private areas for walking and cycling and 3/4 mile of river.
This is somewhere to stay when you want to escape to the country but not be too far from the town.
