Dylan's Distraction

Dylan's Distraction, Plum Guide home in Wales

Dylan's Distraction, Plum Guide home in Wales

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

Pause For Thought, Plum Guide home in Chester

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


Cottonseed, Plum Guide home in Manchester

Cottonseed, Plum Guide home in Manchester

Click to book Cottonseed now: from £500 per night Once a powerhouse of industry, Manchester was well known for its trade which is why you can’t get any more authentic than staying in a former 19th century cotton factory. These days, the industrial interiors have been given a softer touch with a pallet of subtle pinks and greens by New York design team Gryzwinski+Pons. The intelligent use of space combines functionality with style, giving you everything you need for a comfortable stay. Experience true Northern hospitality when you’re welcomed with Kinsey Apothecary toiletries and a bag full of tasty treats. Head downstairs for a drink in the Conservatory Bar or cosy up in the king size bed and make the most of the Apple TV for a relaxing night in or take a short stroll to the city’s famous Northern Quarter full of independent bars and eateries for a great evening out. Should you need to get some work done while here, the seriously cool co-working lounge is the place to be. The reception desk staff are on hand 24/7 if you need anything during your stay, and you can also get involved in a variety of events, pop ups and fitness classes in the building so it really is everything you need, and more. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Peaches & Dream

Peaches & Dream, Plum Guide home in Manchester

Peaches & Dream, Plum Guide home in Manchester

Click to book Peaches & Dream now: from £1000 per night Whether you've come to Manchester for a city break, for work or just for a good time, this stylish place has you covered. With all the independence of a self-contained flat, but the added convenience of hotel-like facilities, it represents the best of both worlds. Your space is tastefully designed with eye-catching colours and ultra-modern furnishings, and the big windows make for glorious mornings reading the papers in bed or afternoons snuggled up on the sofa. In the building’s communal areas, there’s a cafe and restaurant where you can sit down for a cup of coffee or a chilled-out evening meal. You also have access to a co-working space for those days when you need to finish up some last-minute tasks and a gym is available, so you can stay fit while you're away. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Hey Jude

Hey Jude, Plum Guide home in Liverpool

Hey Jude, Plum Guide home in Liverpool

Click to book Hey Jude now: from £100 per night Buzz — some cities have got it and some just haven’t. And Liverpool has it in spades. We love how Merseyside has transformed itself in recent years into a top-notch destination for shopping, eating and hopping between art galleries. You can place yourself in the epicentre of events thanks to this deftly designed urban pad. Blush pink, terracotta and an array of house plants subtly introduce a natural world theme to the home, making it a soul-soothing spot to recharge after an electrifying time out in the city. Throw together a quick breakfast in the kitchen area and join your fellow guests for a morning planning session around the wooden dining table. The Liverpool ONE shopping district is right on your doorstep, but we recommend the independent eateries of the Baltic Triangle and dinner one night in the UK's oldest Chinatown. Art lovers should make a visit to the Tate a priority and consider a day trip to the unique Lady Lever Gallery over the water at Port Sunlight. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
