Rich Pastures, Suffolk, UK
Click to book Rich Pastures now: from £322 per night This Grade II-listed Elizabethan farmhouse in St Nicholas South Elmham fuses period features with modern furnishings. Channelling the heroines of novels past, you can stroll through the bloom-filled garden before settling under a tree with a book of poetry. Those English maidens, however, didn’t have a hot tub to relax in, but you do – a Scandi-style wood-fired one, to be exact. There’s also an external “games barn” with table tennis, table football, darts and a pool table. Indoors, you’ve got a gorgeous farmhouse kitchen equipped with a Rangemaster oven, and an open fire in the living room to snuggle up around after a hectic day of activities. And if you decide to venture out and explore, there’s plenty to do in the surrounding area as well - from unique market towns, to traditional pubs, to fishing spots, to ample countryside to walk in. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Molton Tudor, Devon, UK
Click to book Molton Tudor now: from £110 per night Between the undulating green hills of Devon lies this large Tudor-esque manor, equipped with plush, comfy furniture and a traditional kitchen, very fitting for the countryside. Converted from a thatched 17th-century farmhouse, the cottage lies in the heart of a working farm, so your kids will love hanging out with the cattle and sheep. If you can peel them away from the animals, you can explore the quaint villages around Exmoor and browse the boutiques of South Molton. Back in the home, admire the exposed wood floor and make use of the AGA to feel like you're in yesteryear (breaking the illusion is the games console that'll keep the little ones entertained). Velvet curtains, a woodburner and an antique rocking horse add those grand yet homely touches. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Hearthside, Somerset, UK
Click to book Hearthside now: from £656 per night An old hearth, flagstone floors and cast-iron roll-top baths; this is the farmhouse idyll in the heart of Somerset. The honey-brown stone farmhouse and cottage is surrounded by a sprawling woodland estate on all sides, and is two miles from Ilminster where you’ll find plenty of cosy pubs, restaurants, shops and cafés. There’s a restaurant on the estate itself if you don’t feel like getting in the car. Though the farmhouse kitchen is a delight to cook in and there’s a long dining table to serve the whole group. Or, opt for a barbecue outside in the summer months and keep an eye on the kids running free on the lawn and ducking between trees. At the end of the day, it’s a choice between cuddling up by the wood-burner in the snug lounge or heading out to the wood-fired hot tub for an evening under the stars. There are plenty of books and board games to keep the group happy too. If you’re lucky enough to bag the master bedroom there’s a claw-footed tub and your own wood-burner waiting for you at bedtime. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms
Beneath the Beech Tree, Cotswolds, UK
Click to book Beneath the Beech Tree now: from £400 per night This charming farmhouse beckons many a guest seeking time away from the daily nine to five. Set in the quintessentially English village of Bladon, on the edge of the Cotswolds, you’re in a beautiful part of the world to down tools and set off exploring. Take a stroll around the village to seek out the parish's links to Sir Winston Churchill. Enjoy a brisk walk over to Blenheim Palace (thirty minutes on foot) to marvel at the monumental baroque architecture. Or jump in the car to visit the chocolate box villages of Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford, both just 30 minutes drive away. When thoughts turn to food, you’ll find plenty of pubs and restaurants in the pretty neighbouring town of Woodstock (a two-minute drive away). However, we wouldn’t blame you if you’d rather just cosy up at home. There’s a traditional kitchen made for action, with a large farmhouse dining table at its heart. We hear the welcome basket hamper of eggs, bread, milk, teabags, and other goodies has all you need to whip up a hearty breakfast. And when it’s finally time to lay your sleepy head, climb the winding staircase to discover serene bedrooms (each with en-suites) with soft, muted tones and beautiful antique furniture. Just like a traditional English cottage should be. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Yorkshire Cliffs, East Yorkshire, UK
Click to book Yorkshire Cliffs now: from £200 per night This charming East Yorkshire farmhouse has been fully renovated and provides the ideal place to bring family or friends for a coastal stay. There are some traditional touches, like the exposed wooden beams – but slick modern style takes centre-stage, with statement lighting and colourful sofas adorning the two reception rooms. If you're lucky enough to stay in the master bedroom, you'll sleep in an impressive wooden four-poster bed - though each of the bedrooms has its own charms, whether that's an antique dresser or a piece of modern art. On sunny days, enjoy your meals outside in the garden, soaking up the quiet country surroundings, then take a dip in the hot tub. This home is just a short walk from the centre of Flamborough, a charming Yorkshire village where you can enjoy a pint in one of the traditional local pubs. Or, put your hiking boots on and wander to Flamborough Head, an impressive set of chalk cliffs. Sleeps up to 15 | 7 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
