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.

If escaping the urbanity and returning to your most wholesome self is high on your to do list, for those seeking an authentic wilderness experience on home soil, we’ve partnered with survival specialists RVIVAL to create bespoke breaks at your chosen home. Bridging the gap between luxury and back-to-nature philosophies and under the guidance of wellness gurus, wild cooking connoisseurs, and even SAS operators, experience a hand-crafted stay that puts connectivity at the fore. Alternatively, enjoy a solo experiential escape with like-minded folk with our limited edition Return to the Wilds, A Survival Anthology and Modern-Day Hunter-Gatherer retreats.
