An idyllic rural getaway is the perfect way to unwind and let the stresses of daily life fall away.
Whether it’s an escape in Cornwall or a picture-perfect countryside retreat to Somerset, getting away from the hustle and bustle is the ultimate way to disconnect from it all.
While COVID-19 derailed many travel plans, it has allowed the UK to embrace staycations and explore the beautiful nature that can be found closer to home.
With this in mind, luxury self-catering company Perfect Stays has put together its top three properties for wilderness-seeking in the South West.
Properties for wilderness seeking – Couples retreat
Set in a private pocket of rugged Cornish countryside, The Nook is a couple’s refuge with a difference.
Exuding a spacious yet cosy ambience, The Nook merges scandi interiors with industrial accents creating a bold, modern and utterly on-trend space. Encircled by rolling hills, The Nook allows you to take the opportunity to reconnect and unwind among breathtakingly beautiful surroundings.
Embark on sunny morning walks amongst the wild-flowers or explore the north coast beaches knowing you will be returning to a romantic evening, enjoying the sunset in the hot tub.
Properties for wilderness seeking – Cottage cosiness
Perfectly situated within the picturesque Ruthern Valley of Withiel, The Watermill is the ideal holiday home of choice for those looking to take a moment to recharge.
Peace, quiet and tranquillity are in abundance, while still a short drive away from the bustling town of Wadebridge and popular surfing beach at Polzeath.
Wide, green expanses of lawn and farmland surround the property on the private Whitehay Estate, with nearby tennis courts, croquet lawn and endless woodland trails or valleys to wander through.
This blissful cottage retreat is the ultimate cosy getaway.
Properties for wilderness seeking – Pastoral paradise
Surrounded by acres of luscious green lawns, embrace the light and bright interiors of Rosemain. Spoiled for choice, the beautiful property boasts easy walking routes to Rock Beach or all the space you could need right in your own back garden.
Rosemain is perfect for friends or families, allowing guests to spread across five spacious bedrooms, with the large dining table at the heart of the property – ideal for socialising.
For a quieter night, or to keep the little ones entertained, there is a separate television room to unwind in.
Explore the local area and enjoy the surrounding beaches, bakeries and quaint village touches that this stay has to offer.
