There are many benefits to living in the city. One is the vibrant atmosphere that epitomises city life, the constant buzz of events is perfect for those social butterflies out there. City life provides great opportunities for work, and you can guarantee that no one day is the same as the next.

As great as city life can be, it sure can be draining! Plus, the air pollution is something that is really noticeable once you leave the city and make your way to the countryside. And not to dampen readers thoughts of city life, there are limited areas of green space where wildlife plays and true peace and quiet can be appreciated! It is, therefore, no surprise that many urban-dwellers are seeking rural retreats for some well-needed R+R. If this sounds like you, our helpful guide will highlight the type of rural retreats Quality Unearthed have to offer, their benefits and the type of traveller and group they suit.

Log Cabins

If you’re looking to escape the world this autumn or winter, look no further than our UK cabin holidays. Log cabins, with their roaring fires and cosy interiors, are perfect for travellers who want to get back to nature but are not ready to dismiss luxurious home comforts and additions, like hot tubs!

We have a great selection of log cabins, including the fabulous Pip’s Place, The Challoners and Mrs Higg’s Lodge which have upcoming availability for last-minute breaks.

If you want to read more about what it’s like to stay in a log cabin for a couple of days, read our interview with blogger, Sian Lewis, who stayed in Mrs Higgs Lodge to detox from technology.


Admire nature from a new perspective when you stay at one of our treehouses. Up here you can truly appreciate the fresh air, whilst staying in a truly unique glamping abode. Our adorable treehouses home parties of two to four, and are an ideal option for nature and adventure-lovers. From your treehouse base, you can witness all the wildlife that scurry or fly past your balcony or use it as a base to explore the woods.

Current treehouses available over the autumn and winter breaks include Hoots Treehouse and Bensfield Treehouse.

Gypsy Wagons and Shepherd Huts

Our gypsy wagons and shepherd huts are quaint accommodation options for couples looking for a super cosy, love nest. You will find that many of our wagons and huts are located in spectacular areas, where nature is literally on your doorstep.

We still have a few wagons available for the off-season if you are looking to get away this autumn or winter for some well-deserved R+R. The current gypsy wagons and huts available all year-round are Lynher, Tamar and Ninks Wagon.

If you’re an urban dweller, why not let us know the reasons why you love going on a rural retreat via our social media? We love to the hear the reasons why people love to escape city-life to one of our glamping abodes.
