What to expect on a rural retreat


Rural retreats offer a relaxing break far from the hustle and bustle of the city and blaring highways.

These unique retreats are typically tucked away in remote towns or villages in the countryside, beside the sea or hidden in the hills – it's as secluded as it gets.

There are a variety of accommodation types to match any budget or preference.

Guests can choose from rustic self-catering cottages and cabins in the countryside with a wood-burning stove and basic amenities. 

For something a bit more luxurious, there are cosy holiday homes with stunning views of the coastline or 5-star lodges complete with a games room, spa centre and an outdoor hot tub.

The itinerary for a rural holiday is also centred around nature. 

Guests will have the opportunity to reconnect with the outdoors and restore balance to their lives through gentle yoga, meditation, wilderness walks, wild swimming and even horseback riding.

With the exception of self-catering holiday cottages, most rural retreats will serve a variety of delicious, organic dishes each day. Meals are usually prepared fresh using locally sourced ingredients bursting with flavour and nutritional value. 

Why choose a rural retreat?


While yoga retreats in bustling tourist towns are an excellent experience, it's not for everyone.

Sometimes, you just want to settle into a comfy chair with a steaming cup of tea and breathe in the fresh aromas of the beautiful countryside in complete peace and quiet.

Whether you need a break from the chaotic city life, or want to deepen your practice in a calm and serene setting, a rural retreat provides the perfect escape.

These rustic holidays are also a fantastic way to reconnect with nature or your loved ones on a romantic couples getaway or family retreat.

With dog-friendly holiday cottages and large family manors, families can cram the kids and pets in the car and enjoy a short family bonding break on a wild walking retreat in mystical woodlands. 

For out-of-tune yogis, there are spiritual retreats in the countryside that offer transformative healing treatments, meditation practice and plenty of quality time in nature.

After a rural retreat, you'll feel more relaxed, revitalised and reconnected with nature and your loved ones. 

Top destinations for a rural retreat


From the lush English countryside to Spain's rolling hills, there are dozens of cosy hideaways nestled in nature.

If you're craving a soul-nourishing recharge far away from the city, then these destinations should be at the top of your list.

England


With quaint farm cottages, historic villages and ancient woodlands, England is a number one choice for travellers wanting a short weekend break or getaway with the family.

Renowned for its winding lakes and majestic mountain ranges, the Lake District in Cumbria is the perfect place to plunge into wild swimming and hiking adventures. 

On the outskirts of Devon and Cornwall, ocean lovers can snuggle into a cosy country cottage and enjoy clifftop walks and surfing, while Kent’s beautiful gardens are the perfect meditation grounds.

Wales


With sheep outnumbering people, it's no wonder why Wales is the ultimate rural holiday destination.

Travellers can run for the rugged mountain ranges of Powys on a meditation retreat or settle into Yoga Nidra beside Pemrbokeshire's seamless coastline.

For those looking for an awe-inspiring getaway in the great Welsh outdoors, Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd boasts outstanding natural beauty and dozens of wild swimming and hiking spots.

The Isle of Anglesey is another secluded sanctuary worth a visit. 

Accessed by the Menai Strait, peace seekers can trade in the daily grind for nourishing beach yoga and private tours of ancient sites.

Scotland


Home to mediaeval castles, sprawling mountain ranges and mysterious lochs, Scotland offers a magical rural getaway.

Dominated by serene mountains, the Scottish Highlands is a haven for the mind. 

Peace seekers can plunge into meditation and Yoga Nidra on a wellness retreat here, or sip detox teas and drink up the natural scenery in a cosy rural cottage.

On the outskirts of Perth and Kinross and Aberdeenshire, travellers can explore unspoilt national parks and historical sites, or wade through a refreshing loch on a wild swimming getaway in the mountains.  

Spain


Although many people travel to the Canary Islands or the Balearic archipelago for a sun-kissed yoga holiday, Spain's sprawling countryside is a must-visit for anyone seeking complete peace and relaxation.

Tucked away in the rolling hills of Andalusia or Catalonia's countryside, travellers can choose from charming cottages, luxurious farmhouses or eco-friendly B&Bs.

In Spain's remote villages, guests will also be treated to delicious traditional dishes made with locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Portugal


Renowned for its stunning natural scenery and slower pace of life, Portugal is the perfect destination for a restorative rural escape.

Whether you're looking for a budget-friendly log cabin in the countryside or newly renovated holiday cottages brimming with charm, Portugal has it all.

In the Algarve region, families and surfers alike can soak up the sun on a surfing holiday or sample culinary delights in white-washed fishing villages.

Escape the city and relax on a rural yoga retreat


Rural retreats are abounding with opportunities to relax, unwind and soak up Mother Nature's breathtaking beauty.

Whether you're yearning for a rejuvenating wellness getaway in the English countryside, or a delectable food and wine holiday in Portugal, Basubu boasts the best rural retreats in the world.

Sort through luxury villas beside the sea, filter tasty vegan getaways, and find a retreat that ticks each and every one of your boxes. 

Browse Basubu's wide range of retreats and embark on the rural holiday of a lifetime.
