That might have more weight if there was no such thing as urban horror in British fiction, but I think it's more a case of writers looking around for more things to be scared of and in the 60s-70s the countryside was next, just as the cities were (about the same time). But would you call (for instance) A Warning to the Curious by James folk horror because of its isolated setting? He might have balked at the idea even though the setting is integral to the chills.
