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

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

The Cartshed

The Cartshed, Plum Guide home in Wales

The Cartshed, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book The Cartshed now: from £117 per night This old cart shed dates back to the 17th century, and though the ancient stone exterior and high wooden beams are a photogenic reminder of its heritage, there’s nothing dated about the cool, lime-plaster walls and stylish interior. Bright and contemporary, with pops of sunny yellows and decorative tiles, this two-bedroom home ensures your stay in the Welsh countryside is filled with comfort. You’re in the middle of some truly excellent rambling routes like Three Castles Walk and the Offa’s Dyke Path, and history buffs will relish a day out to local castles and structures even older than your home. The surrounding area is a mountain bikers paradise with Bike Park Wales and Black Mountain nearby. After spending the day tramping through the wilderness or touring tea rooms, ease into the evening bundled up in the courtyard stargazing or relaxing in front of a good film in the cosy living room. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Nell & The King

Nell & The King, Plum Guide home in Wales

Nell & The King, Plum Guide home in Wales

Click to book Nell & The King now: from £350 per night In the Welsh county of Monmouthshire, this Jacobean farmhouse is steeped in rich history – 1637 is still carved in the timber above the door. Fresh flowers upon arrival are a welcoming touch in the kitchen, while dried blossoms hang from the rafters as they would have back in the 1600s. The 11-seater dining table is tucked into the sunroom, with doors opening out to a beautiful walled garden with views over the rolling countryside. In the evening, stone cherubs appear lit with lanterns creating a magical atmosphere straight out of A Midsummer Night's Dream. There’s a dedicated playroom for kids, and a pool room for grown-ups – equipped with its own wood-burning stove (naturally). The Nell Gwyn suite boasts a lavish four-poster bed with a dramatic portrait behind and a Jacuzzi copper bath. The King Charles suite is full of art and antiques and has a freestanding slipper bath. Nature lovers will be delighted as the home is within walking distance to the beach and in close proximity to the Brecon Beacons – a 15-minute drive away. You won't need to go far for entertainment, as the village pub, across the street, often livens up with live folk music. Return to a cosy living room and snuggle up with a plate of cheese and a glass of wine around the warming glow of the fire. Sleeps up to 11 | 4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
