Endless Ether

Endless Ether, Plum Guide home in Gloucestershire, UK

Endless Ether, Plum Guide home in Gloucestershire, UK

Click to book Endless Ether now: from £349 per night For a deep delve of an escape into nature, this ecological retreat is a total marvel on the Welsh borders. It's a little off the beaten track, but that's what makes it so blissful; settle in for a feeling of total seclusion. We adore just how well the home disappears into nature, almost camouflage-like, and its eco-credentials. It embraces its natural surroundings at every opportunity, with exposed brick, wooden beams and natural light prioritised – not to mention the stone fireplace and surprising upcycled moments, such as in the window frames and a handrail made from pruned branches. There's an outdoor sauna, perfect for unwinding in nature and surrounded by miles of greenery. And a barbecue and firepit means you can enjoy the great outdoors long into the evening. Host Joe has really infused this pad with warmth and meaning; you can tell this home is a passion project. Having seen it for ourselves, we're wildly passionate about it too. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Cheddar Gorge, Plum Guide home in Somerset

Click to book Cheddar Gorge now: from £200 per night For the perfect Somerset escape, we invite you to a cottage set perfectly against the countryside landscape. On sunny days, step out onto the decked terrace for family meals. Lounge in the spacious gardens while you plan your day ahead. The cottage is surrounded by layers of rolling hills perfect for exploring. You have a plethora of trails to choose from, like Strawberry Line and Cheddar Gorge. After long hikes, settle down for a romantic picnic. If you’d like to go a bit further afield, hop in the car and head to Bath for some retail therapy. Slip into the hot tub as dusk sets in and the stars come out. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Big Blue

Big Blue, Plum Guide home in Somerset, UK

Big Blue, Plum Guide home in Somerset, UK

Click to book Big Blue now: from £1344 per night Walking into this mansion is like the beginning of a magical children’s story. There are hanging basket chairs filled with fake furs to snuggle in; freestanding baths surrounded by hand-painted clouds; beds with curtains; porthole windows; doors that lead straight out onto a sandy beach. You half expect to be able to walk into Narnia through one of the antique cupboards. Its location is magical too: right on Portishead Beach, it’s the flat sand and shallows that family holidays are made for. When you're done with your daily sandcastles, walk along the beach to the lighthouse or take in the landmark views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, or for more life and soul Bristol is only minutes' drive away. Apart from sightseeing and playing, it’s possible not to lift a finger while you’re here. Hosts can arrange for private chefs, maid service, babysitting, you name it. All the ingredients for a truly magical trip. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms

Mariner's View

Mariner's View, Plum Guide home in Wales

Mariner's View, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Mariner's View now: from £800 per night This bright apartment makes the most of its position in the tallest building in Wales, with floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with light. The kitchen-diner has been cleverly separated and is found on the mezzanine, from where you can catch the incredible views through the empty loft space. While the furniture is a little simple, the views over the Mumbles and Swansea Peninsula are unbeatable, and provide a beautiful backdrop for breakfast or dinner. The home is equally close to the beach and Swansea town centre - a short five minute walk - meaning it's a toss up between dips in the sea or wandering around the shops. For meals out, restaurants, bars and pubs are within stumbling distance, though it's also worth having a car to explore this beautiful stretch of the South Wales coast. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
