The best thing

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE -

Few places in the UK can of­fer to­tal and ut­ter seclu­sion. Cruck­barn is a slice of ru­ral peace with­out the thun­der­ing trac­tors or early morn­ing cock­erels. Time passed de­li­ciously slowly, es­pe­cially in the fire-lit evenings, and many an hour was passed star­ing at the ma­jes­tic vaulted ceil­ing and work­ing out how on earth two plucky blokes man­aged to build such a mag­nif­i­cent space all by them­selves.

Cruck­barn in Wig­more, Here­ford­shire, sleeps five (in two dou­bles and a sin­gle day bed). A long week­end (Fri–Mon) starts at £475; cruck­barn.co.uk. See also lud­low.org.uk and vis­ithere­ford­shire.co.uk.
