Click to book Damask Rose now: from £1151 per night This stunning historic home captures the beauty and rustic charm of an estate dating back hundreds of years. From the ornate wooden furnishing to the impressionist artwork on the walls, this Grade II listed house sparks delight and curiosity. With comfortable sitting rooms, a library, and a cosy TV room, there is plenty of space for family and friends to relax. It’s the kind of house that sets imaginations buzzing. Just imagine the stories it could tell. Children in particular will love exploring – especially the rooms in the attic. The estate is surrounded by a lovely garden for you to enjoy. There are restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance, and you can even gather up the troops and stride out for a day at Portishead Beach. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
Click to book The Brunel now: from £699 per night Set on one of the most delightful Georgian squares in Bristol (and that’s saying something), this elegant period townhouse is a dream come true. The location is unbeatable – it's sandwiched between leafy Berkeley Square and Brandon Hill Park, which offers fabulous views of the city and is a great place for a picnic as the sun starts to set. From this spot, you can walk to all the best restaurants and attractions in Bristol, including Clifton Village – home to independent shops, cosy pubs and gorgeous terraced houses – as well as the city centre. With its ample rooms, grand ceilings and antique-style furniture, the interior radiates traditional character. Keen cooks can flex their culinary muscles in the charming kitchen, or better yet, you can arrange a catered feast with the on-site hosts, one of whom is a trained chef. There are seven cosy bedrooms to choose from (some even offer glimpses of Cabot Tower), while a comfortable living/dining room is perfect for when you want a relaxed evening in. Sleeps up to 14 | 7 Bedrooms | 9 Bathrooms
Click to book Evening Primrose now: from £800 per night Escape the city in style at this idyllic estate surrounded by the rolling green landscape of the Gloucestershire countryside. Stay in a Grade-II listed home rich with history, featuring Georgian stone walls, fireplaces, big beautiful windows, and unbelievable grounds. Entertain yourself and your guests in the music and library rooms - a refreshing break from the TV. Elegant bedrooms, beautiful bedframes, and freestanding bathtubs will ensure a restful and indulgent country retreat. The home's grounds share the same beauty as the Grade-II listed Dyrham Park - a National Trust site a walk or 5-minute drive away. Historic cities Bristol and Bath are both very close if you want day trips spent shopping, eating and drinking, and evenings filled with dreamy country living. Sleeps up to 11 | 6 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Apple Orchard now: from £1260 per night Tucked in a quiet valley outside of Bath is this luxurious, Grade II-listed Georgian manor house. Built in 1742, this honey-coloured home has been beautifully maintained and restored to its former glory - with a few modern updates, of course. There is an abundance of natural light flowing throughout the home, which the owner's have made the most of thanks to stylish decor choices. White walls only add to the calming feel, beautiful mirrors create an airy feel, and skylights/expansive windows create an indoor/outdoor feel. But there are plenty of splashes of colour here to add a punch of personality - we love the purple furniture in one of the living rooms, and the bright blue walls in the luxurious bar. If the weather is fine, we think you'll be outside enjoying this home's immaculate country garden. There's a barbecue, large table for entertaining, sun loungers for snoozing and private seated nooks overlooking the apple orchard for when you need some time to yourself. And if you're looking for art, culture and gourmet excitement away from the home, the splendid city of Bath is only a fifteen-minute drive away. Sleeps up to 14 | 7 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms
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
