My Heart Leaps Up, Cumbria, UK

The outdoor kitchen area at My Heart Leaps Up, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book My Heart Leaps Up now: from £3108 per night This is one of those mammoth homes that has a space for whatever sort of mood you're in. Outside, the huge terrace, outdoor kitchen and shed with a pair of hot tubs inside will see you through summer evening gatherings, while the upper floor library and TV room complete with open fire are ideal if you want a moment to yourself away from the group. Elsewhere, you're sure to appreciate the clawfoot bathtubs for when a little bit of me-time is needed. The kitchen is commercial-sized and will make whipping up feasts for guests sitting in the grand dining area a breeze — although private catering is available if you're not so culinary gifted. The home itself sits between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District, so there's a wide range of walking routes and natural landmarks nearby. Even closer to home, there's an art gallery at Farfield Mill only four minutes away on foot, as well as pubs and cafes in the town of Sedbergh reached in around twenty-five minutes' walk. Sleeps up to 28 | 12 Bedrooms | 12 Bathrooms

The outdoor kitchen area at The Country Pile, Plum Guide home in Cotswolds, UK

Click to book The Country Pile now: from £200 per night Rest and reset at this charming country home located in the quintessential Cotswold village of Upper Oddington, and just a six-minute drive from Stow-on-the-Wold. A house begging for a large group of friends or family to come together, there's ample space to spill out and relax here. After days of adventure, kick off your boots in the downstairs utility, fold back the mighty glass doors in the living space, and pad out into the manicured, enclosed gardens. While kids (and big kids) climb the treehouse or let off steam on the trampoline, come together around the impressive bar and barbecue area – the heat lamps and drinks cooler will help keep the night flowing. On chiller days, sneak off to find a cosy nook beside the log-burning stove in the snug room (complete with SKY TV and DVDs for when it's time to crash out). And as night falls, come together for an evening tipple from the honesty drinks tray before flexing your culinary skills in the made-for-action kitchen. Or skip cooking entirely and mosey down to one of three traditional inns, all within walking distance, or a little further, Daylesford Organic farm shop, spa, and restaurant (twenty minutes on foot). The award-winning local produce and pizzas alone are worth the hike. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms

Click to book Old Manse now: from £200 per night Set on a quiet country lane leading into the sleepy village of Little Tew, you'll find this immaculate period home. Perfectly located to explore the Cotswolds, Chipping Norton is just a five-minute drive away and the hotspots of Soho Farmhouse, Daylesford Farm, and Cornbury Music Festival are all close by. Built in 1869, this handsome Victorian house originally served as the home to the minister of the local Baptist circuit. Its most notorious past resident is Edith Gates – the first ever woman to be recognised to hold the charge of an English Baptist church. Nowadays, this grand house has been thoroughly modernised and transformed into an elegant, stylish retreat where antiques and rich textiles add layers of interest. Spread out over three floors; there's plenty of space for you all to spill out here. But it's over in the orangery kitchen-diner where you'll be spending most of your time. With a kitchen made for action and light-filled dining space, this place makes cooking while entertaining an absolute delight. It looks out onto a manicured one-acre garden where children or furry friends alike can burn off some energy before dinner is served. And with two reception rooms, each with its own fireplace, you can look forward to toasty evenings curled up by the crackling fireside. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms

The outdoor kitchen area at Hockwold Hall, Plum Guide home in Norfolk, UK

Click to book Hockwold Hall now: from £1571 per night Arrive at this palatial and stately home – a former Royal residence of Prince Victor Duleep Singh, the Godson to Queen Victoria – in the east of England’s lush Norfolk countryside and be transported to a bygone era of sophistication, refinement and absolute elegance. Perfect for a large family celebration or just an indulgent rural escape together, the sprawling grounds are glorious and the interiors are renovated with all the desired modern conveniences, without losing the home's rustic regality. Part the velvet drapes enclosing your four-poster bed and wake to views of magical forests. Enjoy breakfasts in the garden, afternoon tea around the light and airy dining area, and evening cocktails down in the cellar – we really loved the traditional pub-style entertainment area and bar here. Active types may opt for a clay pigeon shoot, a game of tennis or a jog around the grounds, following the private trails. While the others gather around the log-burning fire, curling up with a good book and even a sing-along around the grand piano – you'll notice the royal patterned wallpaper, large picture windows and ceiling mouldings. Whatever you choose to do here, ensure you round off a lovely day with a tipple in the private jacuzzi and alfresco dining on your delightful patio area. Grace personified. Sleeps up to 26 | 10 Bedrooms | 10 Bathrooms

The outdoor kitchen area at Come Up For Air, Plum Guide home in Devon, UK

Click to book Come Up For Air now: from £1547 per night From the moment you arrive at this stunning farmhouse bordering Exmoor's beautiful National Park (only a fifteen-minute drive away), you'll feel as if you've been given a comforting and restorative hug. It's a rural retreat surrounded by wildlife – from Exmoor ponies to red deer – there are twenty acres of gardens and fields to explore before even setting off for a stroll through the countryside. Only a thirty-six-minute drive to River Exe and under half an hour to River Barle, try out kayaking immersed in outstanding national beauty. There are also plenty of gastropubs and ever-so-charming teashops dotted around, so you're never far from a soothing scone. When – weary and full of cream, jam and tea – you do eventually return to your stately abode, you'll find a home that conquers indoor and outdoor living in elegant fashion. Put those tired tootsies up and snuggle down for an evening around the warming inglenook fireplaces and wood-burning stoves in one of two cosy living rooms. Come together for a meal in the refined yet rustic dining area, benefitting from exposed beams and a dazzling chandelier, for a special celebration – there's even a grand piano to have a sing-along beside. Last but certainly not least, you'll find a private outdoor garden and patio area – complete with a hot tub and sauna – that makes for the perfect spot to unwind with a bottle of Prosecco in hand, around good company. Bubble away in the tub, before getting ready for an evening of alfresco dining on your leafy terrace, surrounded by oak trees and the idyllic green backdrop of Exmoor – and if you're looking for a post-meal wander, head down to the lake for a romantic stroll by the water. Oh, and you have shared access to a tennis court if you fancy donning your whites come morning. Sleeps up to 21 | 9 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms
