Almsbury Farmhouse, Gloucestershire, UK
Click to book Almsbury Farmhouse now: from £200 per night Nestled into the Sudeley Castle Estate, fringing the charming village of Winchcombe, you'll find this Cotswold stone 18th Century farmhouse. Spread out over three floors, with a separate annex to spill into, this home is the perfect country escape for an extended family or group of friends. Climb the flight of stairs to discover luxurious bedrooms to sleep all fourteen of you, with crisp, white linens and many with en-suites. Back downstairs, the layout is set up for easy socialising with a spacious kitchen made for action and two dining spaces. But there are also cosy nooks to retreat to, with a separate playroom and snug complete with a crackling fire. Outside, kids and furry friends alike can roam free on the immaculate lawns, all under the watchful gaze of the grown-ups from the raised deck terrace as you fire up the barbecue. And when it's time to get out and about, you're right on the edge of Winchcombe, with restaurants, shops, and bars just a stroll away, as well as easy access to the area's many breathtaking walking trails. Or call in on your neighbourhoods at Sudeley Castle (ten minutes on foot) – guests have complimentary entrance during the open season, don't you know. Sleeps up to 14 | 7 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms
Farmhouse Modern, Tuscany, Italy
Click to book Farmhouse Modern now: from £1235 per night Built in the eighteenth century, this former farmhouse combines rural living with the best of the modern world. Boasting sweeping views of the Val D’Orcia from the infinity pool, we can’t imagine a more perfect place to hang out as the hot Italian sun makes its way across the horizon. Enjoy alfresco dining on the lush patio, fire up the pizza oven for an authentic Italian experience or prepare wonderful meals with ultra-fresh fruit and veg straight from the garden and the famous Chianti wine in the contemporary kitchen inside. Several living areas allow the group to spread out, and have all been immaculately styled and designed – think sleek fireplaces and dazzling modern art against white-wash wooden ceilings and exposed stone walls. Bedrooms are just as stylish and some come with direct garden access and luxurious free-standing tubs. If you want to keep on top of your fitness game, there’s a gym on the first floor with a glorious picture-frame window showing off the view of the rolling Tuscan hills. In terms of location, you’re a ten-minute drive from the beautiful Tuscan town of Sarteano with its red-roofed ancient buildings and crumbling castle. Chuisi with its local museums, winding streets and train station is just a twenty-minute drive too. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms
Shropshire Lad, Shropshire, UK
Click to book Shropshire Lad now: from £339 per night If you’re looking for the ultimate English rural idyll, you just found it. Sitting in the middle of fifty acres of farmland in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this large farmhouse is an ideal place to get away from it all. The views are truly something to write home about, with panoramas of the Long Mynd's heathland hillsides to be enjoyed from almost every room in the house, as well as from the alfresco dining area on the terrace. Back inside, don't expect pared-back rusticness — there are en-suites in each of the large bedrooms, a country-style kitchen-diner, and a cosy living room complete with a log-burner for getting nice and toasty next to after bracing walks. You're certainly not short of hiking trails that start nearby, nor local pubs for refreshments. The pretty market town of Bishop’s Castle is only ten minutes away in the car and is the perfect place to stock up with supplies, with its delicatessen, butcher, and microbrewery. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
Old English Farmhouse, Shropshire, UK
Click to book Old English Farmhouse now: from £110 per night And breathe. Surrounded by open fields, enjoy the blissful Shropshire countryside from a quintessentially English cottage farmyard. Amidst rural nature, it's hard to believe you'll actually only be a ninety-minute drive away from Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham in this secluded spot – situated a five-minute drive from the village of Maesbury. Not far away from the Welsh borders, when here it's time to restore your energy and escape the mundane for a luxury cottage retreat. Boasting characterful traditional features and bags of rustic charm – rather surprisingly the home does not compromise modern home comforts. Welcoming and cosy, the interiors reflect the countryside setting from the moment you walk through the stable-like door. With original oak beams and reclaimed wooden panelling, the open plan ground floor centres around the kitchen and lounge area. Think handcrafted redwood, a wood-burning stove as well as antique trinkets and furniture throughout. Alongside the traditional log burner, an eco-friendly, wood-pellet underfloor heating system provides constant hot water. From the kitchen, head out to the private patio area for a cup of tea in the fresh country air. Guests can also access a larger, less private, courtyard which offers a perfect sun trap from which to enjoy the summer's sun. All around the farm, you'll find peaceful places to relax and explore – over by The Orchard there's a spot for children to play freely and there's even a barbecue area in an adjacent field. Between the cottage space, additional accommodation, expansive farm grounds and surrounding fields, this dreamy location is a suitable address for group retreats or workshop weekends amongst other things. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
Adagio in C Minor, Vaucluse, France
Click to book Adagio in C Minor now: from £791 per night Nestled on a hillside with quaint villages nearby, this beautiful 18th-century farmhouse with its vast grounds offers unspoilt views of Mont Ventoux. Thoughtfully renovated, the house retains plenty of character and charm while boasting high-end amenities. Stepping into the living room, you will feel a true sense of comfort - the combination of antique pieces and original features with a touch of modernity makes for a warm and inviting space. Authentic wooden beams and exposed stone walls decorate the interior and exterior of the home. Arrange to have a private chef prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the fully-equipped kitchen or host a wine-tasting event in the rustic garden. Dine alfresco next to the beautiful pool while admiring the rich greenery of the courtyard. You can spend days walking the grounds with stunning views of the Provencal countryside. A short drive away from the house is the charming medieval town of Carpentras, where every Friday morning, you can discover the liveliest market in the area. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
