Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
It is a wonderful place for a family holiday with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground. (more)Michelle Levene
Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma
From €1225 - €1610 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Carmarthenshire self catering cottage in Wales
We had a great time - relaxing, some beautiful experiences (beaches, hills, islands and all the above animals). We were in bed every night by 9.30pm - tired but blissfully comfortable after a day spent exploring. (more)Jayne Obeng
Perfect!....The best thing about the holiday was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a holiday should be. (more)Kirstin Robertson
From £275 - £450 per cottage per week (sleeps 4)

We'll remember the brightness of the stars on clear nights with no light pollution, watching bats flying around our lodge at sunset, waking late because it was so quiet and comfortable and the blackout blinds were so good, the ruby red cows really glowing like rubies at sunset, being content to just potter around the farm in the sunshine without getting bored.

Dordogne self catering cabin sleeping 4
Memorable parts? Just being in such a remote location, no internet, no emails, no phone signal! Totally peace and tranquility! Having the raft was totally fab to play around on too! Also seeing the kingfisher, catching fish (returned safely to their watery home!) having deer as neighbours & listening to the stags rutting. Tips? The cabin can hold 2 adults & 2 children comfortably as the upstairs twin room is very low - if you are a grown up with back problems......ouch! But more than... (more)Sally Cowburn
