Come Up For Air, 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
Gently Down The Stream, Norfolk, UK
Click to book Gently Down The Stream now: from £200 per night There's a lot to love about this converted barn in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. And its peaceful setting, surrounded by woodlands, water meadows and gardens are just the beginning. How about a tennis court? And, of course, what would a home in the Broads be without water access? This place has it all. On the River Bure, adventurous types can bring a canoe or paddle board, and even paddle along to the nearby riverside pub. You'll have your own fishing spot if that's how you prefer to spend your afternoons, or just bring your binoculars and look out for otters, kingfishers and more. Indoors, it's a bright and modern space, with a sociable living area and stylish kitchen – complete with a huge island. Patio doors open to a private terrace, and we love the vaulted ceilings and stripped-back original beams. There's a bedroom on the ground floor, with direct access outside, and the family bathroom is on that level too, while the master and third bedroom are upstairs (the third having a unique, low level window overlooking the dining room). With fifteen acres of land to explore, there are great walks to be had from your doorstep, and here you'll be about twenty minutes by car from Norwich in one direction, and the stunning Norfolk coast in the other. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
The Coaching House, Wiltshire, UK
Click to book The Coaching House now: from £327 per night Rustic charm meets eclectic taste at this gorgeous countryside retreat. You'll feel a little like Alice in Wonderland as you walk around the rooms - things seem to get more curious as you go (in the best way possible, of course). Out in the garden, things stay very Lewis Carroll - we love the candy-floss wisteria and bluebell woodland for the backdrop of a leisurely stroll. There's also a heated swimming pool and a private tennis court, plus a Par 3 golf hole, an outdoor fire pit, a boules court and a football field, so you really will have everything needed for an endlessly fun-filled stay here. A former coach house, this charming home benefits from high vaulted ceilings with wooden beams and exposed brick walls, as well as a cosy fire in the living room – the perfect spot to gather around on chilly evenings. But it's the owner's personal treasures that make this place truly special, with art objects collected from their travels in Asia, including vintage artwork and a horse's muzzle. The location is fantastic too - Lacock is a picturesque National Trust village and is often used as a filming location – any fans of Downton Abbey or Harry Potter? It has a host of cafes, delis and traditional pubs nearby, while further down the road you’ll find beautiful Bath in less than thirty minutes. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Maisonette On A Whim, Kent, UK
Click to book Maisonette On A Whim now: from £168 per night A holiday home made for two? Yes please. Wind down to this southern gem in the Kent countryside, close to Maidstone, to replenish and reset. A cute and quaint cottage, this home is by no means backward, boasting the ultimate, modern treat of underfloor heating to literally worship you at your feet. Natural stone floors and a neutral colour palette lure the coastline closer with its hints of sea blues, introducing a spa-like luxury to the home under its beamed ceilings. As you wake up in front of the bed's French doors, simply roll out onto the terrace and enjoy your morning coffee in privacy. Outside of the home lies a choice of indoor and outdoor pools, as well as a tennis court for shared use as part of the resort. The Bearsted golf course is also not far away, and countryside and coast lie within easy reach. With museums, gardens, rivers, boat trips, and castles to explore in the region and peace and rest to be found at home, this stay is what you make it – just you and your favourite person. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
The King's Man, Devon, UK
Click to book The King's Man now: from £550 per night This beautiful, eco-friendly home can trace its history all the way back to the year 976, when King Edward gifted the estate to a loyal member of his court. Since then, it has evolved into the country's second-best party and wedding venue (according to The Times), but in our opinion, it really comes into its own when booked as a relaxing rural retreat. Sitting on the edge of Dartmoor, it packs in plenty of rustic charm, making it the perfect place to enjoy a well-deserved break with family and friends. The interior pits modern art, bright throws and eye-catching rugs against original details like oak beams and more farmhouse features, including the Everhot range cooker and wood-burning stove, to create a stylish and welcoming home. Step into the immaculate garden, and the first thing that will catch your eye is the inviting pool with breathtaking views over the surrounding national park – it's seasonally heated to a balmy 28°C, so you can enjoy a dip whatever the weather. In addition to the pool, there's also a tennis court where you can unleash your competitive side. Your host Alistair, who co-owns the farm with his brother, will be there to cater to all your needs. As a former superyacht captain, he's an expert in delivering five-star luxury service. Sleeps up to 14 | 7 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
