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

Coast Wanted

Coast Wanted, Plum Guide home in Pembrokeshire, Wales

Coast Wanted, Plum Guide home in Pembrokeshire, Wales

Click to book Coast Wanted now: from £300 per night This home close to the Pembrokeshire coastline is part beach hut, part cabin, but wholly luxurious. Inside, the huge windows and French doors let plenty of Welsh sunshine into the space, but once nighttime swings around, the dark blue walls, underfloor heating and inbuilt fireplace lend a sense of cosiness. There's a modern kitchen complete with a sleek island, while outside, a hot tub and barbecue are the perfect marriage during the summer months — or the winter if you're feeling hardy. When you want to explore all that this corner of the UK has to offer, you couldn't be better positioned. Tenby's South Beach can be reached in ten minutes on foot, while the seaside village of Saundersfoot takes the same amount of time in the car. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Sea Sleep

Sea Sleep, Plum Guide home in Wales

Sea Sleep, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Sea Sleep now: from £200 per night Set in the south of Wales’ picturesque Gower, Oxwich Bay is known for its two-and-a-half mile stretch of beach peppered with salt marshes, woodlands and sand dunes. Sea Sleep is just a short trip from this sandy haven and both the beach and the apartment are dog friendly – perfect if you're looking to escape with their furry friends. There’s plenty to keep even the busiest of bees occupied with coastal walks, trips to Oxwich Castle and delicious local foodie spots to seek out such as Beach House Restaurant (think lobster and salt marsh lamb). Those staying a little longer have plenty of time to check out this magical stretch of coast or even take a trip to nearby Swansea (also handy for picking up any of those little bits you might have forgotten). The apartment offers an ideal spot to unwind after you’ve finished exploring – whip up a delicious dinner in the fully equipped kitchen or curl up in front of the fire and get cosy. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Salt-Kissed Tides

Salt-Kissed Tides, Plum Guide home in Wales

Salt-Kissed Tides, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Salt-Kissed Tides now: from £200 per night Known for its sandy beach and seaside charm, Saundersfoot is a lively holiday destination full of cheery pubs, charming eateries and quaint boutiques. Just up the hill, only a twenty-minute walk from the harbour, you'll find this breezy bungalow. Cool and contemporary, it's an excellent spot to call home during your stay on the Pembrokeshire coast. The whole household can hang out in the open living area, watching TV in front of the fire or playing a game around the dining table. When the weather is nice, throw open the bi-fold doors to flood the room in sunlight. Home chefs will love preparing meals in the glossy kitchen and hosting barbecues in the garden, and as the evening draws in, why not grab a glass of bubbly and head to the deck out front to watch the sun set over the bay? Tenby, with its pastel cottages, historic town walls and kilometres of sandy shores, is only a short drive away and well worth exploring, or simply wander down to Saundersfoot and spend your days relaxing by the sea. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
