Sleeps: 8 plus 2 kids
This historical property is set at the footsteps of the Landgate Arch in the pretty, quaint town of Rye in East Sussex, just an hour from London by train. Landgate House is a 700-year-old five-bedroom Grade II listed property that has been carefully restored by the owners with thoughtful touches and some of the best interiors on this list – think antique furniture, Soho Home accessories and bespoke decorative accents. Numerous original features have been restored, including flagstone floors and wonky doors. You’ll find modern touches, too, like Bluetooth speakers, and toys, games and a bar in the cosy living room. Families or groups can cook meals on the new range cooker, eat in the spacious dining room, and relax in the garden. Bedrooms are spacious and thoughtfully designed, with all the luxury extras you’d expect at a hotel. During a trip to Rye, explore the many independent shop and boutiques, and visit The Fig for brunch.
From £1,050 for two nights.
