5.0

Pulling up outside this gorgeous home, it's clear you're about to stay somewhere special. The mock-Tudor decoration, the red brick walls, and of course that pretty garden overflowing with greenery, means that the first impression of this home is of a stately country house, a feeling that's reflected once you step inside. From the roaring fireplace in the sitting room, the glass conservatory, and the cheerful Aga in the farmhouse style kitchen, this home makes the most of traditional features without sacrificing on modern flourishes – the Sonos music system provides the perfect soundtrack for an evening spent in the spa-style hot tub in the garden. Situated only a thirty-five-minute train ride away from central London, this house is one of the most convenient countryside spots you'll find. The home is in the village of Blackheath, minutes from the heathlands that have made Surrey a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making this an ideal stay for any ramblers, cyclists, hikers – or really, anyone who appreciates beautiful scenery.
