A resident person is someone who is either in their home town or staying somewhere for 15 days without initiating a legal journey (>51 miles).

Thus, you would be a traveller in the first part of your stay in the rural town, as you’re staying there less than 15 days; and also for the second stay there, if also staying less than 15 days.

You are correct that you’re always considered a resident at home.
