Boutique Retreats

With luxury cottages in the Cotwolds, Hampshire, Scotland and the West Country, this company holds the key to your next staycation.

Bridging the gap between traditional holiday properties and boutique hotels, Boutique Retreats is a lettings company with a difference.

In addition to a tip-top roster of over 100 beautiful boltholes, clients can enjoy a truly personalised service. The team is always on hand to arrange no end of treats, including a private dining experience with a Michelin-starred chef, foraging with an expert, one-to-one surfing lessons, a dog-sitter and much more.

The website is as pretty as it’s properties, too. With gorgeous photography and a clean, modern design, it makes choosing your next break a breeze.

Whether you are after Farrow and Ball interiors, seaside elegance or a woodland escape, Boutique Retreats has the property for you. Here, we pick some of our favourites.
