Luxury wilderness cottages

If you go down to the woods today you're in for a big surprise. In places where bleating sheep and burbling hot tubs are the only hubbubs to break the silence, our luxury wilderness cottages are a breath of fresh air.

Evenings in the wilderness: between cups of tea and bites of oatcakes, you'll balance on the sofa’s edge to remove Jenga blocks in the lull of a late-night radio show. Later, you'll dash between the hot tub and sauna, wrapped by the winds of a forested valley, and be glad you escaped from the city. Including one that was dubbed ‘possibly the best log cabin in Britain’, our luxury wilderness cottages pack a paradisiacal punch. These are places that carefully balance the great outdoors with the great indoors; meaning, there's swimming pools in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yoga decks in the Outer Hebrides, and cinema barns among Welsh mountain ranges.
Taking a break from urban living may well calm the mind and soothe the soul, but its greatest accolade is how it helps us return to our most wholesome selves. Hike up high hills with your city-fatigued dogs, take the children blackberry-picking, or gather in the garden to char homemade margheritas in the pizza oven. Now's the time to assemble your coterie and make for the wilds, trying a slice of expeditionary life on home soil. These cosy private homes are made for storytelling by the inglenook fire, morning coffee among 20,000 books, and warm crumble made from backyard apples. Solitude is beckoning; how far will you go for your wilderness escape?
