Secluded cottages - where you can hide from the world

family holidays ukLess than half a mile out from an old medieval market town, you turn off the steep main road onto a winding dirt track, slightly obscured at road level by bush and forest. You bump along for 10 minutes before arriving at your destination. As you park the car you're greeted by the cheerful owners of the cattle farm and invited to share an afternoon tea complete with home baked cake. Suitably refreshed, they guide you over to the far side of the farmyard. There hidden partly by birches and a great old oak is a path leading up to a beautiful pale stone barn conversion.

You consciously note the big open fire and the stylish comfortable quality furnishings that create such a relaxed atmosphere. At the far end is a door leading to a large dreamy bedroom with a superb inviting king-sized bed, covered in a lovely fluffy duvet dotted with small colourful decorative cushions. The en-suite bathroom flaunts a double shower and a jacuzzi.

Having stopped off, on your way in, at the farmers market in the nearby town, you're all set to try out the BBQ that is set on a pretty raised ocean blue slate private patio at the back of the cottage. It looks over the town and countryside beyond. As you lounge on the comfortable wooden seats with brightly coloured padded cushions, surveying the stunning panoramic view for interesting locations to explore over forthcoming days, the scent from the herb garden alongside imbues you with a feeling of contentment. As the sun sets turning the sky a bright red, you raise a toast to your good fortune in finding such an idyllically secluded cottage, perfect in every way and sited near so many diverse local attractions.
