For all manner of reasons people are choosing to holiday at home and why not!? The UK has some of the most stunning destinations in the world. We have selected some of our favourite properties in some of our favourite destinations which have added a slice of luxury into the mix. So why not make your staycation one to remember by, making it that extra bit more indulgent. Read on for some of our very best properties offering style and comfort.


Malthouse Farm, Sleeps 8 - Heacham, Norfolk.
This gorgeous Georgian property on the west Norfolk coast will grab your attention right from the moment you arrive, sitting proud in its extensive grounds and, once inside, the beautiful interior furnishings cannot fail to impress. Enjoy the open fire, the 3 large flat screen TVs, the spacious and exquisite kitchen with an aga range and relax in the lavish hot tub outside. Gardeners Cottage, Sleeps 4 - Whitby, Yorkshire
A delightful, roomy and modern semi-detached cottage situated in the wonderful grounds of Raithwaite Hall estate which means you can take advantage of all the luxurious facilities it has to offer. You may fancy a workout in the fully equipped gym followed by a swim in the heated pool, a sauna, steam, jacuzzi or one of the indulgent spa treatments available. There is even a luxury dog spa where your faithful friend can be pampered too! There is a great choice of dining in the Brace restaurant, located in Raithwaite Hall, offering outstanding cuisine or for more relaxed dining, visit Hunters Lounge at The Keep.


The Perch, Sleeps 4 - Southwold, Suffolk
Clearly a property built to make the most of its fantastic views. This holiday cottage perches (sorry) right on the edge of the Southwold dunes. The crisp clean lines, white interior decor and abundance of natural light pouring in from every window give this property a really fresh feeling. The stunning scenery is complimented by the high standard of design and detail throughout. Splashed with colour and a polished finish it really is the perfect seaside getaway to mix ultimate comfort and luxury with lungs full of fresh seaside air. If rambling about on the beach sounds too energetic then we suggest a gin and tonic is best tasted when sat on the balcony taking in a breathtaking Suffolk sunset.


Reading Room House Sleeps 4 - Newbridge-on-Wye, Wales
This detached house has been furnished with meticulous attention to detail and equipped with no expense spared. It has 2 super king size bedrooms each with their own large TV, one with ensuite wet room and the other with the main bathroom nearby fitted with a jacuzzi bath for a luxury dip! It has its own south west facing deck and patio where you can enjoy the splendid views of the Wye valley and enjoy summer evenings sipping fine wine. If being in the countryside is what you enjoy then this is the place for you with all the benefits that go with it, such as walking, cycling, fishing, bird watching and horse riding.


Spindrift Sleeps 6 - Instow, Devon
It may not scream luxury from the outside, but inside, this property tells a whole different story. With an impressive interior, including leather look wallpaper, slate bathroom, hot tub and climate controlled conservatory, you could quite forget you’re in a Devon coastal village. The generous rooms and contemporary furniture offer a very grown up and stylish living space. A large sprawling lawn to the front of the property is neatly complimented by a secluded patio to the rear, a perfect hiding place to indulge in the warm bubbles of the private hot tub. It offers sea and estuary glimpses all only a minutes walk from the pretty village of Instow, which itself has stunning views towards the picturesque fishing village of Appledore. Given its stunning interior and ideal location, it is a glorious spot to really get back into the holiday pace of life and explore this corner of the north Devon coast.
