Rural Retreats portfolio represents the cream of luxury holiday cottages throughout the UK and Ireland. With over 450 stylishly presented country houses and cottages to choose from, each carefully selected to meet our high standards of comfort, Rural Retreats makes it easy to find just the holiday home you are looking for. Many are buildings of historical importance, beautifully and imaginatively restored and refurbished to meet modern standards. All of them are close to the coast or nestle deep within some of this country’s most beautiful countryside. Notable among the properties in the Rural Retreats portfolio are 26 former lighthouse keeper’s cottages in spectacular coastal locations.
Our guiding philosophy is that our holidays are all about the guest. Our guests deserve a relaxing break and a quality experience. We strive to make it that way by helping our guests to choose the right property and giving the guest the very best of service before and during their holiday.
You only have to open the door of your chosen holiday hideaway and you will immediately see what’s so special about Rural Retreats. The good quality furnishings, an exceptionally high standard of cleanliness, a hamper on the kitchen table waiting to welcome you, a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge, a log fire waiting to be lit and an ample supply of fresh towels and quality toiletries – these are some of the ingredients of a perfect, well earned break.
Guests can start a Rural Retreats holiday on any day of the week, a service offered at most of our properties throughout most of the year. When guests arrive at thier chosen property they will receive a courtesy call from our housekeeper to ensure that everything is as it should be.
We offer 5% commission on sales you make for Rural Retreats. With our average booking value of £1,000, but properties with booking values of over £3,000 there is excellent opportunity to increase earnings.
