Five unique retreats
“To Retreat – withdraw to a quiet or secluded place”. We love that idea and we’ve picked five from the Further Afield collection, perfect for when you need a little space to yourself.
At the end of a long drive through wild meadows, perched at the cliffs edge is this unique styled modern hideaway for two. With floor to ceiling windows designed to take in the views, a wood burner and access to great walks from the front door this one really is the full Monty.
In its rural Welsh setting, this converted barn has a huge amount of space both inside and out. There’s a huge open plan living and kitchen space, but also a separate and incredibly cozy TV room. Head outside and there’s wild flower gardens and the firepit – an ideal spot to sit and contemplate before moving inside to the wood burner if needs be. Bliss.
We’re not entirely sure you could get a more idyllic spot for your retreat than this one. Tucked away in the Scottish mountains on the edge of a barely rippling Loch, the days could simply pass with your taking in the views or borrowing kayaks to float away into the views yourself. Quiet. Secluded. Heavenly.
Okel Tor Mine Cottages, Cornwall
These two cottages are set well apart from one another with beautiful views across Cornish countryside. You can choose to fully retreat here but safe in the knowledge that the village of Calstock is walkable with its array of shops and there are sandy beaches a short drive away. The interiors are calm and restful too.
The Pink Tower, Wiltshire
Bump your way along the farm track to this oasis of calm and although Linda’s close by you feel like you’re up in the trees in the first floor sitting room of this quirky and individual retreat for two. You’re right on the boarders of Wiltshire. Dorset and Hampshire and daily accessible from London and across the south.
