Buckets And Spades, Plum Guide home in Camber

Click to book Buckets And Spades now: from £120 per night A proper British summer holiday deserves a proper seaside cottage - and this white clapboard home is a quiet bolthole on one of the UK's favourite beaches, Camber Sands. A five-minute walk from the surf, the home has been inspired by the sea, from the blue and white furnishings to the cute anchor wall hangings. Evenings are spend cuddled up in front of the electric fire in the living-kitchen area, with the wine fridge a short stroll from the sofa. While it's not the biggest space, the numerous fish and chip shops on the doorstep will mean not much time is spent at the dining table anyway. Bedrooms are bright and cosy, with plush velvet headboards and white shutters to keep the sunlight out, perfect for getting a good night's sleep before another day exploring Camber Sands.

Click to book Spindle Flower now: from £200 per night Sitting high above the Weald, Spindle Flower has breathtaking views over the rolling Kent countryside that will make you feel fully at one with the landscape. Take a picnic down to the table in the orchard at lunchtime, and at sunset relax on the patio with a glass of wine overlooking the sweeping panorama.

Marsh Marigold, Plum Guide home in Kent

Click to book Marsh Marigold now: from £200 per night A classy barn conversion on the wild and magical Romney Marsh, this little place is anything but plain. There's plenty of character in the oak beams, the vaulted ceilings and the log burner in the living room. You'll find touches of luxury throughout the home – a high-end kitchen, handmade bespoke bed, a rain shower and your own hot tub. Rainy day? No problem – enjoy a round of table football or ping pong in the games room. The home even has its eco credentials thanks to a ground source heat pump and solar panels. From the patio you'll have breath-taking views across the vast marsh and the owner's vineyards, and there's a 15th century church just across the road. A short walk on the Saxon Shore Way will take you to a great pub or you can just keep going for miles in this famously flat landscape. But if you fancy a change of scene, Camber Sands is only twenty minutes away by car. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
