This characterful cottage was designed by Hungarian artist-architect Andras Kaldor and owner Richard Johnston. Situated next to a stream in the heart of prime Devonshire countryside, this beautiful cottage is the stuff of fairytales. 

The Folly is a romantic and cleverly designed little hideaway; it’s cosy but somehow open and airy. Delight greets the eye in every corner of this home - From the hallway built-in Buddha to the array of sailing boats on the upstairs beams, it oozes character. 

The cosy sitting room has a woodburning stove, a comfy sofa, and a sleigh bed (if you need to squeeze in an extra). The bedroom has a large bed, with a bathroom and separate shower room. Above the bedroom is a stylish but compact kitchen/dining area with lovely views over the stream and beyond.  

There’s a gorgeous decked terrace overlooking the stream; and a balcony where you can enjoy the evening sun with an excellent view of the grass tennis court. Unwind in a boat seat where you have otters and kingfishers for company. Or lounge upstairs in the sitting room, listening to music while the wood burner keeps you warm.

The cottage is part of Fingals, a collection of self-catering properties with shared facilities; a heated indoor swimming pool, gym, tennis court, and sauna. This cottage is full of character — in the paintings, books, ornaments, art, and furnishings. 

What the guests say: “The folly is completely magical. We were expecting it to be beautiful but it surpassed our expectations. The sound of the stream was delightful and we loved being able to see it from the bed! Every touch was full of unique charm.”

Described as Brighton’s best-kept secret, The Chapel Townhouse is a gorgeous one-bedroom property hidden in the heart of central Brighton. The property combines privacy and seclusion with the romance, style, and grandeur of the finest luxury hotels.

Dating back to the Victorian era of 1876, this gorgeous converted Chapel turned townhouse is hidden along a private and picture-perfect Victorian mews. The chapel townhouse is outrageously cool - perfectly located and really delivers the wow factor.

The space takes full advantage of it’s past with dramatic decor throughout. Wind your way up a grand staircase, beneath an antique glass chandelier, to the lofty studio apartment: You'll find antique furniture and rustic accents placed throughout the space. Stunning stained glass windows take centre stage, and the roll top bathtub is the piece-de-resistance.  

What the guests say: “Amazing quirky space that made our trip very memorable. Well located close to bars and independent shops but it felt surprisingly quiet and very safe with gated access to the mews. Would definitely recommend it for couples looking for a romantic but fun location.”

This romantic royal suite in a picturesque castle would make a historic staycation sure to live long in the memory. Dating back to around 1190, Neidpath Castle is full of original features, which means you'll be vacating in history. That's where Airbnb comes into its own: you can stay in an actual castle.

Set in the unspoiled Scottish Borders countryside on the banks of the River Tweed, Neidpath Castle has hosted an array of distinguished visitors over the years. While not an official review on their website, back in the sixteenth century, Mary Queen of Scots, loved staying in this regal residence with her husband. 

You can follow in her footsteps by booking the sumptuous Queen Mary’s Chamber – an exclusive suite of rooms that blends historic elements with modern luxury. It’s one of the most romantic places to stay in the Scottish Borders. You’ll have your own suite as well as the opportunity to privately explore the whole castle.

There’s a classic antique four-poster bed, a roomy roll-top bath, and an original open-log fire: A combo that guarantees an appropriate royal night’s sleep. An elegant table is set for breakfast. Peebles is a ten-minute walk away, with a host of shops and restaurants, as well as a museum and award-winning chocolatier. 

You're also just a ten minute walk to Peebles, a medium-sized town in the Scottish Borders, which has plenty of shops and restaurants, along with a museum and an award-winning chocolatier. 

What the guests say: “A truly incredible stay. Having an entire castle to explore all to yourself is a surreal but fantastic experience, and the castle has the perfect blend of historic feel and modern touches.

 

SECLUDED TREEHOUSE, KENT

Treehouses have and will always stand out among their counterparts when finding an extraordinary address in the UK. They’re secluded and off-grid – taking over a structure set high in the trees is a fantastic way to truly switch off.

Hovering at 20ft in a trio of oak trees, this is a hangout with uninterrupted views across the glorious Kent’s North Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty. It’s a cosy and private setting on the edge of a barley field, with the only sounds being the wind through the trees and birdsong.

​​This treehouse might appeal to the inner child, but rest assured the interiors are made for grown-ups. The structure is made from recycled timber, with one oak trunk winding right through the tiny living space. The circular cedarwood den is warmed by a wood-burning stove, making it ideal for both a winter and summer stay. 

What the guests say: “This place is really something special. I don’t remember the last time I saw the stars so clearly. The hosts were extremely accommodating and the breakfast was a really nice touch. On our way out we even got to pick pears and apples from the garden. The perfect little getaway.”
