During the day, you can even promenade along the lake that sits within the grounds. One of our stylish birdcage umbrellas – a firm favourite of the royal family – is a must-have for keeping you dry if the heavens open while you’re out and about.

In the winter months, you’ll also be able to cosy around roaring fires after a day in the chilly countryside air. You may find the resident cat, named Tink, curled up beside you as the owners kindly ask that you look after her during your stay.


A manor modelled after Buckingham Palace 

Could you get any closer to living like royalty than this luxury villa in Hinwick modelled after Buckingham Palace itself?

Built in 1710, this Grade I listed home truly lives up to its description of having an air of historic grandeur. Filled with priceless antiques and luxury furnishings, including crystal chandeliers, Persian rugs and furniture from Princess Diana’s family home.

Surrounding this truly impressive country manor is 38 acres of wonderful parkland. Here, you can take up a spot of croquet, tennis, clay pigeon shooting, or even go for a leisurely trip in a rowboat on one of the two lakes.


The historical Jacobean castle

Bring the whole royal court to share the 11 bedrooms that this Grade II listed Jacobean castle in Durham boasts. The large, lavish dining room can seat up to 32, perfect for an evening soiree with your friends and family.

As well as this, you can keep the party going in the not-so-secret dungeon that spans the whole footprint of the house. With many rooms, including a private bar and games room, there’s plenty to discover. Or, if you want to step outside, a hot tub and sauna are just waiting for you to get in and relax.

Pets are allowed here too, free to roam around the 14 acres of grounds. When you need time to truly enjoy the peace and quiet, the surrounding nature reserve is a great place to get away from it all and truly makes this castle feel tucked away.

A Riverside Cornish castle

As you drive past the statue of original owner Sir John Tillie, you’ll find that this castle packs quite the first, second and third impressions. Indoors, you’ll find nothing but elegance and grandeur with many priceless antiques, as well as all the mod cons – including a games room and well-equipped kitchen.

Outdoors, the house backs onto the banks of the river Tamar, which you’ll have a beautiful view of from the three large terraces. Surrounding this, Cornish Castle is set within 55 acres of woodland gardens to explore. And, if you visit in the spring, a blooming wisteria tunnel makes a beautiful, fragrant backdrop. Or you can always dive into the solar-heated swimming pool for a refreshing dip.

We’re getting our swimming costumes ready, just thinking about staying at one of these luxurious homes (and, of course, our birdcage umbrellas should the heavens open) – how about you?
