The White Cabin

The White Cabin, Winchelsea

What better way to spend your getaway week or weekend than right beside the beach, with a beautiful home from home behind you and nothing but the clear expanse of a new sense of freedom before you? Slip straight from those fresh cotton sheets and out into the sea air to rejuvenate in one of the most perfectly primitive of settings.

 

The-Cartshed

 

The Cartshed, Sibton

The Wilderness Reserve is home to many special houses. With a fine and fitting balance of the rustic and the new, all finished to a stunning standard of attention to detail, The Cartshed makes effortless statements all of its own, despite being part of a larger and no less impressive collection.

 

Aldourie-2.2.16-222

 

Aldourie Castle, Loch Ness

Not for the faint-hearted is something quite spectacular beside Loch Ness in Inverness. Aldourie Castle speaks of privilege and a thousand other things that dreams are made of; memories that will stay with your for the rest of your life. If you ever find yourself in this neck of the woods, the woods are your oyster. Think the Highlands, archery, a private marina and 500 acres of gardens and grounds.

 

The Moult

The Moult, Salcombe

Demonstrating that our humble, fair green isle can stand with the big boys when it comes to cracking views, The Moult has a veritable arsenal of polished edges and bold statements, all the while sitting calm and collected in Devon. Boasting a pool to die for, four acres of gardens and private steps down to the beach, this is one more to add to the long list of reasons to go south.

 

Taikoo

Taikoo, Okehampton

Just over an hour from The Moult, by way of the wonderful Dartmoor National Park, is a house with something different to say, and from a different angle. Taikoo oozes a rich gleaning of history. Views across the Park and minutes from Okehampton, where the horses hang out beside the road. The juxtaposition of the oriental and the English will make a deep impression the house is now renowned for.

 

Mangerton House

 

Mangerton House, Bridport

Remaining in the south for now, we have another house that boasts not only a showstopping view, but also a showstopping pool, tucked away within a house that holds new marvels round every corner. Complimenting the quality of the interior design, The South Coast is on your doorstep. What more do you need? Okay, try Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens and Abbotsbury Children’s Farm for the little ones. For yourselves, maybe outdoor concerts and theatre performances.

The Lakes by Yoo, Lechlade

If the Cotswolds as a whole isn’t a good enough reason to come to the South West, you’d do well to learn what all the fuss is about around the Lechlade Lakes right now. I’m talking of course about the Lakes by Yoo complex, a collection of stunningly unique houses set on the lakes and designed by some of the best names in interior design: Kate Moss, Kelly Hoppen, Jade Jagger – the list goes on. With spa treatments, pools, hot tubs, fitness trainers, kids clubs, private catering and more, you’ll forget all else that lies beyond.

 

Polpier-Nick-19 (1)

 

Polpier, Mevagissey

Luxury, comfort, leisure and the fresh sea air. These are just some of the things that you’ll find at the Cornish wonder, Polpier. With the Lost Gardens of Heligan being a short drive away and the port below being a short walk away, this house comes with the promise of time well spent. There’s a buzz down by the water as the boats bob calmly surrounded by a host of locals and seagulls alike. Pubs, independent gift shops, antique shops, cafes, spots for stillness and silence – this little gem has it all.

 

The Slate Beach House

 

The Slate Beach House, Wadebridge

There’s a raw quality to the slate in the house and in the sky, depending on the time. What prevails at all times is the potential of a holiday to be cherished. In North Cornwall, The Slate Beach House has intrigue laid on thick throughout – from the gardens to the panoramic views in the living spaces; from the sculptures to the surrounding hills.

 

Derwentwater-10

Derwentwater House, Lake District

We finish with a flourish, something special in tribute of our Lakes week. Introducing Derwentwater House, a statement in Northern charm and luxury in a district famous for its history, literature and timeless unspoilt beauty. This house is wrapped in extensive grounds and is within 100 metres of the shore of the lake it takes its name from. Perfectly equipped to welcome children, this is the perfect base for a stay in the Lakes.
