Click to book Dragonfly Inn now: from £85 per night Come and play at Bournemouth's wonderful beaches, visit the city's award-winning fine-art galleries and try the cutting-edge cuisine. Those are just a few excellent reasons to visit Dorset's largest town. Neatly tucked away at Westcliffe, just a short walk from some of the city's largest attractions, you'll find this recently remodelled home. Thanks to its south-west-facing position and its little balcony, guests staying here can enjoy peekaboo sea views and bask in the glorious sunshine on a bright day. From here, it's also just a two-minute walk to Bournemouth Beach and a wonderful stroll along the shore to Bournemouth Pier. When you're ready to call it a day, head home to the flat's fully fitted kitchen, large double bedroom with crisp linen, Sonos sound system and flatscreen TV. There's even a separate writing desk, in case you need to set up a home office. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
The Manor Stables
Click to book The Manor Stables now: from £170 per night Always fantasized about being Lord or Lady of the Manor? Well, now you can be, sort of. This historic stable building (dating back to 1900) is part of a family estate located in the Dorset village of Hinton St Mary. Along with the estate’s gatehouse (also available on Plum Guide), it's been recently refurbished and is accessible to outsiders for the first time. We loved the balance between period features and brand new additions, like the shiny bathroom and kitchen gadgets. Everything is finished in the best possible taste, with some lovely personal touches. The owners clearly want their new guests to feel at home, as they’re happy to accommodate needs, whims and fancies, from arranging a paid-for chef or babysitter, to offering a choice of seasonal duvets, luggage storage, locally sourced ingredients in the welcome pack and everything you’d need to bring your baby (high chair, cot, dinnerware, pram, potty, etc). The home’s location is another definite selling point. At the end of a small village lane, near a cricket green and traditional pub, it’s picturesque and quaint. The nearest town is Sturminster Newton where there are plenty of shops and cafes, a great deli and butchers. This home makes a great base to explore the famous Dorset coast and countryside or simply settle back and relax by the wood-burning stove and imagine your servants are just out of sight. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Horsing Around now: from £100 per night If there's anything more romantic than this adorable converted horse box with glorious views of the rolling Somerset countryside, we want to hear about it. Lovingly transformed into a cosy home with rustic yet stylish furnishings, quirky but compact Horsing Around brings together the joys of camping (fresh air, barbecue dinners, stargazing till late) with the comfort of a boutique hotel room (think plush bed and sofa, contemporary soft furnishings and vases of freshly cut flowers). But outside is really where the magic happens here. By day, pick fresh herbs from the garden - literally - at your front door to season your picnic sandwiches, best enjoyed down by the tree-dappled pond. And at night we can't think of anything better than reclining on the rattan sofa and admiring those idyllic views with a chilled glass of wine as the sun goes down. Bliss. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Cory's Retreat now: from £1492.26 per night If you’ve ever dreamed of staying in a typical New England mansion, then this modern home is just the ticket. Only you’re not in the Hamptons – this is Hampshire, in good old Blighty. From the panoramic window walls to the contemporary furnishings, this is a super sophisticated escape to the country. There are rustic touches, with plush sand-coloured sofas in the sitting room, and a soft blue country kitchen, creating a homely feel. Large, stylish bedrooms include two playful children’s rooms, and bathrooms feature luxurious walk-in showers and free-standing tubs. Spend fun times in the games room, or outside on the family-sized football pitch and climbing frame. Or head down to the lower ground floor and slip into the luxurious indoor pool or sauna. Outside, a stunning deck wraps around the back of the home, with an alfresco dining area and loungers for sunny days. While beneath is the lower ground floor patio, with a relaxing lounge area accessed directly from the pool. Beyond that, the lush green grounds offer an idyllic setting to unwind and reconnect with friends and family. Sleeps up to 15 | 6 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms
Click to book Hancocks Farm now: from £500 per night A beautiful amalgamation of 500 years of history, this stunning Somerset farmhouse spans the centuries. Stone floors run throughout the home, some old, some more recent, each documenting the evolution of this building over time. It's furnished in a contemporary farmhouse style that's designed to feel like a home to all – offering a combination of cutting-edge modern spaces, and a cosy cottage feel depending on where you are in the house. The large kitchen is the heart of the home, with a beautifully restored AGA offering post-walk warmth on cold winter days. Elsewhere, the rest of the downstairs is split up into several rooms large enough for everyone to come together, with enough options to find a corner to call your own should you wish. The kitchen conservatory is the first of the contemporary spaces – it's perfect for summer living with its floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and dining area looking out over the rolling countryside. While the garden conservatory offers much the same but in a smaller form. Upstairs, the cosy bedrooms are decorated with floral print wallpaper, super-soft throws, and armchairs where space allows. The master bedroom even manages to fit an elegant freestanding bath alongside the dressing table. Outside, a terraced garden is spread over various levels, complete with a croquet lawn and even a mature woodland. The icing on the cake is the newly built pool house, complete with changing and steam rooms, plus an inviting pool with an automatic cover designed to keep the heat in and little ones out. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
