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
Click to book Rectory Loft now: from £240 per night Don’t let the low-key name throw you - this slick conversion is a luxury country life experience. Part of the Rectory Farm estate, the Grand Designs’ worthy loft is sleek and minimal with lots of oak, steel-framed windows and Scandi meets English country furnishings. Throughout you’ll find intimate nooks of space for quiet contemplation, from the family bath with views of the sky through the Dorma, to the double workspace in the eaves. While the whole place is top drawer, the highlight has to be the glass-fronted balcony, looking out over the pond. Sitting here as dragonflies dance over the water, you’ll fancy yourself a million miles away from civilisation. In fact, you’re just ten minutes from the hustle and bustle of Market Harborough and five minutes from the all-important local pub. As an added bonus, you’ve got the run of the estate’s verdant 14 acres, complete with a lakeside picnic area. You won’t want to leave. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Jewellery Box now: from £180 per night An ode to its past, this converted warehouse near the heart of Birmingham's trendy Jewellery Quarter rocked the industrial look long before it was fashionable.

The home comes with all the modern comforts you need for a relaxing stay, with everything from a big wall-mounted TV and bookshelves, to comfy beds and houseplants. The sleek white kitchen comes with high spec appliances so you can dish up a delicious dinner if you’re spending the evening in.
