Acorn Rural living Collection

Idyllic countryside, stretching for miles across hills and wooded valleys. The distant murmur of rural life, with birds crying overhead or cows lowing to their young, occasionally interrupted by a passing car or a tractor, harvesting crops. Rural living enables you to switch off from the hectic pace of modern life and reconnect with nature, in our 'green and pleasant land'.
  • Bookers Edge, Hay-on-WyeLying on the south-east bank of the River Wye and at the northernmost point of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Hay-on-Wye is set in a unique position on the border between England and Wales.

In the wilds of the countryside, the changing seasons are part of the pattern of rural life. The first snowdrops, pushing up through still-frozen grounds. The drifts of wildflowers in the hedgerows, butterflies fluttering in a warm breeze. The fields turning golden, with ripening crops. Then woodlands transforming into a flaming palette of colour as autumn descends and fallen leaves crunch underfoot as winter returns.

The pleasures of country living are luring many people who want to escape the pace of their urban existence and with many popular country towns within easy commuting distances of larger towns and cities, the influx of new blood is helping to revive once-sleepy villages.

Traditionally-themed gastropubs are now popular spots to relax on a sunny summer evening, with boutique galleries and independent shops jostling for space along ancient high streets. Local traditions have seen a surge in popularity with events such as cheese rolling, bale pushing, agricultural shows and harvest festivals bringing in visitors from far and wide.

Rural living is a chance to enjoy all the varied pleasures and peace of the countryside, an opportunity to unwind after a busy day, or just to live life at your own pace.
