Holly Cottage, Plum Guide home in The Cotswolds

Click to book Holly Cottage now: from £200 per night Framed by climbing roses and jasmine, Holly Cottage, sits down a quiet country lane. If you're looking for traditional, picture-postcard England, it's the place to be. Wandering through the village of Coln St Aldwyns is like stepping back in time. There isn't a single modern development nearby, with most of the cottages built in the 17th and 18th Century. Close to the shop is the old bakery and bathhouse – the baths were heated by the bakery’s ovens! When you're not investigating the local history, the beautiful countryside makes for wonderful walking. Return in the evening for a bubble bath and a glass of wine by the fire. The covered barbecue makes for a great spot to enjoy an alfresco dinner, come rain or shine. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Gloucester Old Spot

Gloucester Old Spot, Plum Guide home in The Cotswolds

Click to book Gloucester Old Spot now: from £200 per night This quaint Cotswold cottage is located in the heart of the thriving market town, Moreton-in-Marsh. Just one look at the sandstone facade is all you need to get a feeling for exactly what this home will be like on the inside, and it doesn't disappoint. It boasts beautiful original timber beams, flagstone flooring, exposed stone walls and a wood burner in the cosy living room. The stunning farmhouse kitchen leads to a charming courtyard garden with plenty of seating and a barbecue to make the most of long summer evenings. The town is located within an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, which definitely merits further exploration. However, due to the direct train links to London, this North Cotswold town makes for a perfect countryside escape without necessarily needing a car. You can find everything you need along the half-mile span of the town, with a choice of restaurants, shops and pubs right on your doorstep. Check out The Manor House Hotel for an eight-course tasting menu or sophisticated à la carte options. Alternatively, enjoy the lunchtime kick-off over a pint at The Black Bear Inn on the High Street. Take your pick from a couple of small supermarkets where you can stock up on essentials, while The Cotswold Cheese Company offers up a mouthwatering taste of the town. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Rectory Barn

Rectory Barn, Plum Guide home in England, UK

Rectory Barn, Plum Guide home in England, UK

Click to book Rectory Barn now: from £339 per night Part of Rectory Farm in the East Midlands (fifteen minutes from the lovely Market Harborough), this slick barn conversion is the epitome of luxury country living. Outside, you're surrounded by fourteen acres of rolling countryside, while inside, soft furnishings, mood lighting and striking original artwork create a cosy and relaxing atmosphere. We loved the folding glass wall in particular – it overlooks the landscaped garden, and on warm days, you can open the doors and bring the outdoors inside. Spend days roaming the grounds and finish the evenings with a board game or family movie night in the lounge. Your hosts have considered every single detail, and the list of mod-cons feels endless – we're talking a popcorn maker, electric blackout blinds, power showers, no less than four Amazon echos, two smart TVs with Netflix, an Xbox One (complete with games) and a super high-spec kitchen that has everything you'll need to rustle up a delicious dinner. During the winter, the underfloor heating protects toes from getting chilly, and there's a full summer kitchen with a gas barbecue and seating for eight on those long summer nights. And if you're worried about the strain all the gadgets might put on the environment? Don't be – the hosts have even considered that, and the whole home runs on solar power and air-source heating. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Rollright Retreat

Rollright Retreat, Plum Guide home in the Cotswolds, UK

Click to book Rollright Retreat now: from £164 per night Timeless, cosy and quintessentially British, this rustic limestone home is everything you’ve ever wanted from a chocolate box cottage in the country. The interiors are warm and homespun, with a farmhouse style dining table that calls for lively breakfasts of doorstep toast with lashings of jam and milky cups of tea. Pour out onto the terrace to soak up the sunshine in your lush surroundings or don your wellies and take your pooch for a long yomp through miles upon miles of local fields. When hunger strikes, come home to a barbecue in the balmy sunshine. If the weather’s not on your side, jump in the car for a ten-minute drive to the Swan Inn – your foodie host personally recommends their Gourmet Burger Thursdays. For a culture-packed day trip, Oxford is a thirty-minute drive away. And you'll find plenty to do within the Cotswolds too – from manicured gardens brimming with wildlife to quaint tearooms, traditional pubs and historic buildings in charming villages.
