Let My Favourite Holiday Cottages introduce you to a collection of countryside holiday cottages, from rural retreats for couples to large luxury country houses for large family holidays or gatherings of friends surrounded by trees and fields and the occasional country pub. Whatever you are looking for, whether a working farm in Gloucestershire where children can feed the livestock or a get-away-from-it-all Yorkshire Dales cottage in the country surrounded by fields or moorland offering long relaxing walks., it will be on this page of holiday cottages in the countryside. See the night skies as they should be seen, without interference from light pollution, or allow the dawn chorus to be your gentle morning alarm clock. Dip your toes into babbling brooks and teach your children to play Pooh sticks on ancient bridges. In the spring, country lanes and woodlands can be a mass of wildflowers in a profusion of colours, while in the autumn, it can turn many shades of gold and bronze - perfect for autumnal walking holidays. You're more likely to find rural holiday cottages with large picnic-friendly gardens, inglenook fireplaces, oak-beamed ceilings and thatched roofs. Still, with so many barn conversions, a countryside cottage can exude rustic and contemporary charm. For large families or groups of friends, look for old farmhouses converted to holiday homes with rooms (and bathrooms) a-plenty.
