Sometimes it’s good to just get away from its all and relax in the peace and quiet of the English countryside – and that’s exactly what you can do when you stay in one of Blue Chip Holidays’ “Rural Retreats”. The rolling hills, steep wooded valleys and wild moorland that characterises the landscape of Devon Cornwall and Somerset make the West Country an ideal destination for a rural getaway. Criss-crossed with myriad paths and walks, the region is great for exploring on foot or bike, and as many of our rural retreats are pet-friendly, you can bring your four legged friend along too!
