As 2020 comes to an end and the travel restrictions begin to ease, we look forward to brighter days ahead. Here, we share our top five retreats for your 2021 escape, whether that be for a long awaited family reunion, belated birthday celebration or romantic weekend for two. At last, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
The newest addition to our coastal collection, eco-friendly retreat Iraia was designed with summer gatherings in mind. The private decking, complete with a hot tub, outdoor swimming pool and kitchen, overlooks Seaton Beach in Cornwall, and makes for an idyll setting to sip ice-cold cocktails on balmy days.
One for the ultimate family reunion when the time is right, this set of renovated 18th century barns invites up to 18 guests to gather within its exposed Cotswolds stone walls. The dining room steals the show with a giant banquet table adorned with brass candlesticks, waiting to be filled with home-cooked delights, whether that be from a private chef or yourselves.
Lovers of clean, contemporary design will love our Cornish retreat, The Meadows. Whisk your loved one away for a change of scenery; think stargazing from a steaming hot tub, views of wildflower meadows from giant picture windows and long evenings by the outdoor fire. The definition of rural bliss.
Promising guests the best of both worlds, old and new live in perfect synergy at this Cotswolds hideaway that sits within a serene 16-acre wooded valley. This charming cottage sits alongside a contemporary glass extension adorned with natural stone and complete with huge open fires and six luxurious bedrooms.
This picture-perfect white-washed retreat offers a secret place for couples or solo travellers to escape the everyday and embrace life’s simple pleasures. Bird watch from the day bed, sip tea beneath the garden’s glimmering disco ball and sink into the hot tub as scents from the herb garden fill the air.
