Click to book Dylan's Distraction now: from £200 per night From the cream Aga in the huge flagstone kitchen to the sheep frolicking about in the surrounding fields, this home is filled with bucolic charm. Set in North Wales, the cottage bears all the hallmarks of an old farm building, including sprawling gardens, wood-burning fireplaces and beamed ceilings. The three lounge rooms mean there's an abundance of space to either curl up together or have some alone time – with a smaller TV room for little ones to hide. For something a little more energetic, the games room has a foosball and ping pong table, while walking trails can be found leading in all directions from the home. Bedrooms are simply done, with classic white walls and wooden furniture, though the real draw is the beautiful countryside views from the windows. On warm days, get out into the fields and hike, or bag your space on the picnic table for glasses of wine and barbecue meals. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Shropshire Lad now: from £325 per night If you’re looking for the English rural idyll you just found it. Surrounded by rolling countryside in the most tranquil part of southern Shropshire, this large farmhouse is an ideal place to get away from it all. The views are something to write home about, with vistas south to the heathland hills of the Long Mynd. With en-suites to each of the large bedrooms and a large kitchen-diner, it’s an ideal set up for families or groups of friends holidaying together. Spend your days striking out on some of the superb hiking trails, with regular pit-stops in the local pubs for refreshment. Bishop’s Castle (10 minutes away) is the perfect place to stock up with supplies, with its delicatessen, butcher, and micro-brewery. As evening closes in, draw the curtains, fire up the log burner in the library-style living room and snuggle down. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
Dracup's Railway Cottage
Click to book Dracup's Railway Cottage now: from £500 per night This former railwayman’s cottage was turned into a masterpiece by artist Antony Dracup, who lived here between 1980 and 2000, and has been lovingly restored by the current owners. Stepping into the living room is a trip back to the 1940s where an art nouveau light illuminates the refurbished sofa bed and vintage wall art. Through the ‘Station Master’ door, you’ll find a Great Western Railway inspired kitchen with a handcrafted table and benches beneath a skylight, so it feels as though you’re dining outside. We love the ‘Knight’s Cavern’ – a catacombed room hewn into the rock, now adorned with medieval paraphernalia and providing additional dining space at the solid wood table. Upstairs is the second big surprise – the ‘Art Room’ where Dracup’s mural of Bridgnorth and the surrounding area covers the walls and a single swivel chair lets you admire every inch of it. The bedroom, with its raw wood bed, wouldn’t look out of place in Lord of the Rings and even the bathroom has quirky features – an imitation 1920s boiler, exposed pipes and subway tiles. This cottage is certainly one of a kind. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Pause For Thought
Click to book Pause For Thought now: from £160 per night This home in the heart of Chester is full of thoughtful touches like fresh flowers, a breakfast hamper, books and board games for the children, and even yoga mats and blocks should you feel the urge to ‘om’ while staying here. From the peace and quiet of the street, you’d never guess you were just a two-minute walk from Chester’s historic centre. Almost all of the town's biggest sights are within walking distance in fact – you’re minutes from Grosvenor Park, the River Dee, Chester Racecourse, and the Roman Amphitheatre. Built in the 19th century, the house has been fully renovated and has a bright, fresh feel to it that is instantly welcoming. Decorated in refreshing whites, there are bright splashes of orange, green, and yellow to greet you in the morning. And after a day of sightseeing, the courtyard garden is a suntrap and the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing drink or reviving cup of tea. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
