Vicar's Sermon, Norfolk, UK

The heated swimming pool at Vicar's Sermon, Plum Guide home in Norfolk, UK

Click to book Vicar's Sermon now: from £200 per night We're willing to bet that there aren't too many vicarage and pool house combos out there, which is more the shame if this wonderful address is anything to go by. Surrounded by six acres of private grounds, these two properties combine to make for a truly unique stay. The main house dates back to the Georgian era and overflows with regency charm, from the chandeliers and antique furnishings to the tapestry on the living room wall and the chequerboard tiling in the hallway as soon as you enter. Just next door is the slightly newer pool house, which holds an impressive games room underneath the twenty foot-high vaulted ceiling. As the name of the second building suggests, there's also a heated swimming pool for guests to splash about in. This looks out over the walled garden, where afternoons can be spent playing croquet or tennis on the fenced-off all-weather court. Come evening time, the only thing for it is to fire up the two barbecues and gather everybody together on the patio. If you ever feel like leaving the address — which we wouldn't blame you if not — you can borrow one of the ten bicycles and explore the nearby Thetford Forest, or drive half an hour over to Oxburgh Hall to see its moat and gardens. Sleeps up to 15 | 8 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms

Hancocks Farm, Somerset, UK

The heated swimming pool at Hancocks Farm, Plum Guide home in Somerset, UK

Click to book Hancocks Farm now: from £500 per night A beautiful amalgamation of 500 years of history, this stunning Somerset farmhouse and converted dairy spans the centuries. Stone floors run throughout the home – some old, some more recent – each documenting the evolution of this building over time. The garden pool is certainly a new addition, along with a dreamy pool house complete with changing rooms and a restorative steam room. On fine days, lounge out by the heated waters and enjoy a lazy alfresco lunch before treating yourself to a steam – plus, an automated cover keeps the pool at the ideal temperature all the time. The home itself is furnished in a contemporary farmhouse style with every detail attended to – offering a combination of cutting-edge modern spaces and a cosy cottage feel. The large kitchen is the heart of the home, with a beautifully restored AGA offering post-walk warmth on cold winter days. Of course, if you’d rather sprawl out on the couch, there’s plenty to choose from with their own wood burners to keep you warm. For spring and summer living, the kitchen conservatory is pretty remarkable – floor-to-ceiling sliding doors in the dining area open out onto the garden and rolling countryside. Upstairs, the impeccably styled bedrooms are decorated with floral print wallpaper, super-soft throws, and armchairs. The master bedroom even manages to fit an elegant freestanding bath alongside the dressing table – sneak away in the afternoons and take a blissfully relaxing soak. Outside, a terraced garden is spread over various levels, complete with a croquet lawn and even a mature woodland. If you’d like a break from country solitude, it’s just a twenty-minute walk to Babington House, perfect for Soho House club members to grab drinks, food and use the facilities. Otherwise, head into Frome, just a ten-minute drive away, with plenty of options for dining, shopping and sipping tea in town. Sleeps up to 8 | 5 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms

The heated swimming pool at Old Rectory, Plum Guide home in East Midlands, UK

Click to book Old Rectory now: from £1500 per night In the middle of the quaint Northamptonshire village of Maidford lies this lovingly renovated Georgian rectory that's ideal for large family getaways. It's a country home where each room tells a different story, with unique finds ranging from antique plates to watchful bird art and even a crocodile in the downstairs loo — a model one, don't be alarmed. In the ten acres of grounds that surround this property, you'll be greeted by a heated swimming pool, a barbecue, a huge alfresco dining area and some manicured gardens where you can escape for a moment's peace. Say hello to the bantam chickens wandering about too, they're sure to be firm friends by the end of your stay. There's even a games room so you can start a table tennis tournament or practise your putting on a mini-green. When you fancy a day out, the stately home and gardens at Canons Abbey are twenty minutes away in the car, while the ears of motorsports fans will prick up when they hear Silverstone Circuit takes about half that time. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms

On The Downs, Dorset, UK

The heated swimming pool at On The Downs, Plum Guide home in Dorset, UK

Click to book On The Downs now: from £1000 per night This beautiful Grade-II listed Georgian farmhouse and two adjoining cottages are surrounded by rolling Dorset downland and sit within an organic cattle farm (you can look forward to fresh eggs, milk and butter). The interiors are as rustic as you'd hope for, with wooden ceiling beams in most rooms, lots of roll-top bathtubs and plenty of comfy furnishings positioned next to log burners. There's so much to do without the address, from taking a stroll around the walled gardens and meeting the bovine residents to taking a dip in the indoor heated swimming pool, which is twelve metres long. After a session in the water, hop into the sauna and leave ten minutes later with a healthy glow on your face. Elsewhere on the grounds, there are hammocks to laze about in and a children's play area. If you're not in the mood to cook at any point, meals can be delivered by the owner and host Sarah, who just so happens to have trained at Le Cordon Bleu. There's a pub ten minutes' walk away in the village of Tarrant Monkton, as well as further options in the nearby town of Blandford Forum, which takes just under a quarter of an hour to reach in the car. Sleeps up to 16 | 8 Bedrooms | 10 Bathrooms

Click to book Woodland Grey now: from £299 per night Watch the herons dive for their breakfast as you sip your morning coffee in this gorgeous waterside home. On the lush green banks of a small private lake in the Norfolk Broads, this home offers a rural escape while still being a stone’s throw from the cultural city of Norwich (a five minute drive if we’re being pedantic). Surrounded by untouched woodlands, this home is a great place to get back in touch with nature and appreciate the beauty of the world around you. And if you’re not an outdoorsy type, the indoor heated pool is sure to tempt you even if the lake doesn’t. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
