Escape the crowds and leave the big-city life behind for just a few short nights with a much needed countryside break. From quaint cottages in the Lake District and coastal cabins in Cornwall to country house hotels and family-run inns in the Cotswolds, there’s a little slice of calm for any occasion, and all for under £99 a night.

Not only will this be a retreat for you and your friends, but a well deserved break for your wallet, too. Our country breaks are hand-picked and come with up to 60% off, so you can catch up with close friends in a cottage in the Yorkshire Dales, or live out your
Downton Abbey fantasy in an elegant five-star country manor house for less. So what are you waiting for? Strolls around the rolling countryside and neatly manicured gardens are waiting.

Sometimes less is more - our bargain breaks don’t mean you have to skimp on quality: spa hotels, award-winning dining and afternoon teas can all be found below, and with just a few clicks you can trade your city blues for forest greens and red-brick manors.
