No matter how much you adore where you currently live, taking a break in a remote and quiet destination — and getting as far away from other people as possible — is always tempting. Some people's escapist fantasy involves a secret cabin in the woods. For others, a wind-beaten seaside hideaway or a thatched cottage is the ultimate idea of relaxation.
It's never too late to make your off-grid fantasy a reality. Thanks to a Pinterest board's worth of inspiration and plenty of late nights trawling the internet, we have sorted a list of the best remote Airbnbs in the UK. From the Scottish Highlands to St Ives, you can find them all on Airbnb. Whether you’re looking for a cosy farmhouse or a glamping spot, read on to find the most remote staycations for a little slice of tranquil heaven. All you’ll need to pack is a stack of good books and a pair of wellies.
