UK getaways on nature's doorstep

Time to get away, at home in the UK for an escape on nature's doorstep...
We've rounded up some UK getaways in nature - so whether it's a weekend away for a special occasion or simply because you need an escape - on your own, with family or the best of friends, here's our list to book, or bookmark for your next quick getaway…

Glebe House Devon
A guest house and award-winning restaurant nestled in the hills in East Devon provides an escape that will awaken all the senses. Inspired by agrotourismos in Italy after spending time there, Hugo & Olive have set up Glebe as an experience-based guest house and restaurant - a new take on the bed and breakfast Hugo's parents had run for many years. It's all in the name - a house for the guest as a home away from home. Thoughtfully created to provide the kind of deep comfort a weary traveller or just the weary will lap up and never want to leave. With incredible views, walks on the doorstep, and the seaside (and antique shops) a short drive away, this is a perfect base from which to explore Devon - if you can ever leave the farm-to-table restaurant of the heavenly bedrooms with interiors designed by Studio Alexandra.

Banchory Farm
Discover three boutique cottages and a farmhouse nestled in the heart of Fife, Scotland. Situated on Banchory Farm the cottages have been lovingly restored along with a Farmhouse, welcoming local and international travellers the opportunity to rest and relax and take time to connect with nature. With far-reaching rural views by the sea with incredible sunsets and beautifully appointed accommodation, Banchory Farm has the rural escape sorted and it's also a short drive to Edinburgh.

Wylder Somerset
With far-reaching views across the Somerset countryside, Wylder is a gorgeous 10-bedroom home set in 100 acres of farmland, with all the home comforts plus an indoor pool and cinema. It's an ideal spot to decamp for special celebrations with family & friends.

Aller Dorset
These very popular, and very beautiful shepherd's huts have captured the feeling of escape with all of the home comforts and breathtaking views over the Dorset countryside. With Alice Palmer lampshades and Ottoline fabrics, a mini escape to Aller is like a visit to your petite home of dreams.
