The outdoor herb garden at Hideaway Thatch, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Hideaway Thatch now: from £100 per night Straight out of a fairytale, this cosy home is perfect for a romantic getaway with your beloved. The quaint thatched cottage in the Cumbrian village of Laversdale is surrounded by colourful gardens bursting with roses and kniphofia, where you can dine out on the patio and watch the sun go down over the distant Pennines. It’s surprisingly modern inside, with a fully equipped kitchen and a stylish bathroom with a walk-in shower and illuminated mirror. Head upstairs and you’ll find a relaxing space for just the two of you, where a leather seating area (complete with flat-screen TV) leads into an intimate sleeping area with an inviting king-size bed and an ornate bureau.

Easy Living, Somerset, UK

The outdoor herb garden at Easy Living, Plum Guide home in Somerset, UK

Click to book Easy Living now: from £573 per night This huge Somerset estate has been passed down the same family tree for more than four hundred years. As you can imagine, there are a few heirlooms dotted about, from antique furniture, paintings and an impressive leather-bound book collection. Comprised of two different, but equally comfortable properties, it's the perfect setting for a large reunion. Both inside and out, the home feels at once elegant and relaxed. There's a playground for the little ones, a badminton court, a croquet lawn, and plenty of green spaces for all to enjoy. Those who love cooking will enjoy going to the walled garden that's often full of ready-to-eat veggies. Inside the houses, you'll find interiors inspired by different eras, such as the cosy, wooden-beamed living room, a lavish dining hall and the welcomingly modern conservatory. The surrounding county has a wealth of attractions. We recommend you start by visiting Glastonbury — about twenty-five minutes away by car — and going to see the Tor, if only for the panoramic views when you reach the top. However, if you see a lot of sun in the weather forecast, head to Burnham-on-Sea in under twenty minutes for a glorious beach day with the family. Sleeps up to 18 | 9 Bedrooms | 8 Bathrooms

The Beech Nut, Kent, UK

The outdoor herb garden at The Beech Nut, Plum Guide home in Kent, UK

Click to book The Beech Nut now: from £139 per night This thatched studio cottage is a stunning find. Set in the grounds of the owners’ 15th century Yeoman’s Hall house, everything from the wet room to the cast concrete worktops in the kitchen shouts luxury. The parquet flooring was salvaged from the main house, and there’s a clever space-saving dining solution. The screened garden is perfect to sit out with your morning coffee, and best of all, guests are welcome to use the owners’ superb outdoor pool, games room, gym and fire pit. You can walk around the grounds and even help yourself to produce from the vegetable patch in season. If you can drag yourselves away, it’s just a short stroll to one of the village pubs in Smarden or a fifteeen-minute drive to the many shops and restaurants of Tenterden. Keen walkers will have the whole of the Weald of Kent to explore and you’re welcome to bring your dog - there’s even a warm tap outside specifically for washing off those muddy paws. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Sit pretty in the living room with your morning coffee while enjoying the fresh air that comes through the French doors to the patio that leads out to a stunning communal garden. Take a stroll here, bring a blanket to lie on as you soak up the sun, then venture out to see the surrounding sights. You’re just a ten-minute walk from South Kensington and its world-famous museums while leafy Hyde Park is less than thirty minutes away. After a day of exploring, you’ll relish coming home for a long soak in the marble-framed bath, followed by a glass of wine and a meal in the serene dining area. Alternatively, throw on your glad rags for a meal out at one of the city's fine dining spots – you have countless options when it comes to restaurants and bars nearby. When it’s time to turn in, you’ll find two comfortable bedrooms waiting to offer you a dreamy night’s rest. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
