Trip The Light Fantastic, London, UK
Click to book Trip The Light Fantastic now: from £330 per night Concealed behind one of Kensington’s emblematic Victorian red-brick buildings, a world of funky designer comfort waits to ease you into blissful city living. From its living room’s huge bay windows giving way to garden views to its hot pink armchairs, colourful abstract art and jazzy pendant lighting, you’ll feel transported into a retro-modern world of fun and relaxation. Spend quiet mornings playing board games in this light-filled space or catch up on work at the bedrooms’ respective mezzanine studies. We’re not strictly suggesting you stay in bed all day, but you could very easily do so with the rooms’ high-spec TVs boasting DVD players and X Box game consoles, not to mention their show-stopping decor that will have your eyes pinballing in every direction. With a fire-engine red kitchen that has everything from a blender to a rice maker to whip of a feast, as well as the master en-suite's Jacuzzi tub to retreat to in the evenings with a glass of bubbly, there’s no end to the enjoyment to be had here. That said, when you are ready to venture outside, you’ll find countless cultural sights of interest right on your front door. Take an afternoon to explore South Kensington’s world-class museums (the Natural History Museum is a four-minute walk away), stroll through leafy Hyde Park (fourteen minutes away on foot) and indulge in some retail therapy at Knightsbridge’s famous Harrods department store (a fifteen-minute walk). With myriad cafes, restaurants and shops in your neighbourhood to discover too, you couldn’t be better placed to experience London in style. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Rectory Loft, East Midlands, UK
Click to book Rectory Loft now: from £257 per night Don’t let the low-key name throw you - this slick conversion is a luxury country life experience. Part of the Rectory Farm estate, the Grand Designs’ worthy loft is sleek and minimal with lots of oak, steel-framed windows and Scandi meets English country furnishings. Throughout you’ll find intimate nooks of space for quiet contemplation, from the family bath with views of the sky through the Dorma, to the double workspace in the eaves. While the whole place is top drawer, the highlight has to be the glass-fronted balcony, looking out over the pond. Sitting here as dragonflies dance over the water, you’ll fancy yourself a million miles away from civilisation. In fact, you’re just ten minutes from the hustle and bustle of Market Harborough and five minutes from the all-important local pub. As an added bonus, you’ve got the run of the estate’s verdant 14 acres, complete with a lakeside picnic area. You won’t want to leave. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
33 Percy Street, Warwickshire, UK
Click to book 33 Percy Street now: from £300 per night You'll find this 1930s home nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, just a mile away from Stratford-upon-Avon's bustling town centre. Though this place has plenty of period charm, the modern upgrades are what steal the show – think underfloor heating in the kitchen, an electric fireplace with mood lighting and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead straight into the suntrap of a garden. Perfect for afternoon barbecues and alfresco evening cocktails, the garden's south-facing outlook means you'll always have the light. Inside, the glossy kitchen is sure to excite home chefs. Rustle up a mouthwatering meal to share around the dining table, followed by a family board game or two. End the evening in the lounge, listening to music on the Bluetooth speaker or playing on the Xbox while the fire crackles. To make your stay even more special, your host can help you arrange extras like at-home massages, cooking classes and cider tastings. This town is famous for being the birthplace of the Bard, and The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, The Shakespeare Museum and the namesake river are all reachable on foot. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs to tickle your fancy in the centre, but for a change of scenery, hop in the car and visit Warwick's famous castle – it's only a twenty-minute drive. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Click to book Blue Skies Cottage now: from £360 per night Send the blues packing with a stay at this picturesque home at the tip of Bamburgh village.

The four lofty bedrooms feature plush carpet and sloped ceilings and there’s a warming log burner in the lounge for the dogs to doze off in front of. The garden is surrounded by leafy foliage, and although that might trick you into thinking that you’re miles inland, you’re actually only a few hundred yards from the sea. Go for a stroll along Budle Bay and you’ll find stretches of sandy beach and mudflats for a quiet morning of birdwatching. The impressive Bamburgh Castle is less than a five-minute drive away and is also home to a golf course with mighty impressive views overlooking the coast. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
