The balcony at Royal Correspondent, Plum Guide home in Windsor, UK

Click to book Royal Correspondent now: from £176 per night The town of Windsor is perhaps most famous for its castle and it's possible to see this illustrious landmark — one of the British Royal Family's residences — from the balcony of this third-floor apartment. During the warmer months, it's a lovely spot on which to sit out and watch the sky change colour as day turns into night — or just to people-watch on the street below. Inside, guests will find a well-appointed home with lots of chic touches, from the glass dining table and the minimalist white kitchen to the gold lighting fixtures dotted about. When you're ready to head into town, you're surrounded by restaurants and cafes, while the castle can be reached in five minutes on foot. London takes about an hour to reach on the train or by car too, which makes it great for both day trips or commuting. Sleeps up to 4 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

The home itself has beautiful sash windows, which flood the space with light. Wooden floors, mustard velvet upholstery and a modern kitchen make the open-plan living area a comfortable and stylish place to relax after a day exploring the area. But the highlight of this home has to be its sea views, which you can also enjoy from the balcony, perhaps with a drink during sunset. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Whitewashed buildings with charming Juliet balconies pave the street on which this home resides, while the fresh sea air fills your lungs with a breath of serenity as you step out onto the balcony each morning. Set in the centre of the city, this beachfront apartment also boasts close proximity and easy walking distance from all of the shops, restaurants bars and attractions yet on a peaceful street away from the buzz of the business. The apartment itself is in keeping with its surroundings and presents a soothing space to relax. It is decorated with tasteful designs and accessories alongside comfortable modern furnishings – it truly is an easy place to feel at home. We love the high ceilings and large east and west-facing windows that tenure the sun floods in through the home all day long. Enjoy a pleasant aperitif or two on the balcony come evening time as the sun sets over the balmy seascape in the distance. Then as the night falls, you'll have the choice of serving up a home-cooked dinner at the dining area (with a view) or heading out to experience the local food scene along the beachfront or in the town centre just a ten-minute stroll away.

The balcony at Dragonfly Inn, Plum Guide home in Dorset, UK

Click to book Dragonfly Inn now: from £85 per night Just a short walk from some of Bournemouth's best bits, you'll find this recently remodelled apartment. Thanks to its southwest-facing position and its private balcony, guests staying here can enjoy peekaboo sea views and bask in the glorious sunshine on a bright day. Back inside, the colour palette is dominated by earthy neutrals, with occasional bursts of bold pattern coming from the feature wall and the curtains. Considering the flat's only intended for a pair of guests, the minimalist kitchen is welcomingly large and will allow you to go over the top when it comes to cooking romantic dinners. There's even some cocktail-making equipment for knocking up an aperitif. From the address, it's possible to get to Durley Chine Beach via the West Cliff zigzag path in under ten minutes and another eight minutes' walk from that point will get you to the town's pier.
