The Hayloft

The Hayloft, Plum Guide home in Dorset

The Hayloft, Plum Guide home in Dorset

Click to book The Hayloft now: from £115 per night The original details of this converted hayloft hark back to bygone times, and its farming heritage is still very much evident. But what was home to farming tools and animal feed has been cleverly converted to make what can only be described as a love nest. Step inside the larger barn structure and head up your own staircase to the front door. It's a modest space, perfect for two, with a mix of character features and modern comforts. It's bright, with windows built into the walls at a low level, and skylights in the roof. If you manage to drag yourself away from your well-deserved morning lie-ins, the local pub and village shop are just a short walk away and provide excellent food. Dorchester is only ten minutes away by car, and you'll reach the stunning beaches and coastal walks of the Jurassic Coast in around fifteen. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Spring Stream

Spring Stream, Plum Guide home in Buckinghamshire

Spring Stream, Plum Guide home in Buckinghamshire

Click to book Spring Stream now: from £950 per night This country home is a dream come true, with its beautiful thatched roof, charming lived-in feel, and fabulous grounds (the host specialises in restoring historic gardens). Nestled in a pretty village, its size and excellent facilities make it perfect for a large family gathering, special celebration, or a getaway with friends. The home’s welcoming interior and two acres of land make for a sociable setting, but it's far from the madding crowd if you're here for a serene experience. The hosts here have thought about everything for you. You can play croquet or a bit of football on the lawn, feed the hens, pick herbs and fresh flowers in the cottage garden, have a barbecue on the patio, or pop the cork on something cold and fizzy as you step into the hot tub. There's even a village pub just minutes away on foot. Here you're just a ten-minute drive from Buckingham, or fifteen minutes from Bletchley Park, with loads of great country walks on your doorstep. Sleeps up to 14 | 7 Bedrooms | 8 Bathrooms
