We’re in the thick of summer and the lure of a relaxing staycation is calling us… especially those that revolve around a good night’s sleep!
Luckily staycations seem to be all the rage this year (thank you covid) so we’ve rounded up the UK’s most luxurious holiday rentals from the best Airbnbs to the most insta-worthy home rentals, so you don’t have to.
The Pigsty, Winchester
Don’t let the name put you off! The Pigsty is a luxury woodland hideaway located in Winchester with beautiful views of the surrounding Vale Farm.
It’s less than 2.5 miles from the historic centre of the city, so there’s plenty to do and see close by.
Inside The Pigsty is a roll top bath, cosy open plan living space and decking area to enjoy dinner with sunset views. Sign us up!
Briar Lodge, Dorking
With over 300 5 star reviews, you can book Briar Lodge in complete confidence!
Located in Dorking, this tranquil yet luxe log cabin is ideal for a weekend getaway, with activities such as cycling, fishing and hiking available at National Trust sites nearby.
There’s also a BBQ available on-site, making for the perfect British summer getaway.
Boutique Houseboat, Cambridge
So we watched Below Deck on Netflix and this was as close as we could get to imitating that here in the UK…..
Luckily without the added drama. This dreamy houseboat has all the necessities for the perfect weekend away. We’re talking a private garden with decking for al fresco dining, no queuing for pubs here!
Thornton Castle Tower, Aberdeenshire
Because why would you not want to live in a castle for a few days? The castle dates from the 13th century and is full of original features but has been extensively improved for modern living. Which makes it an excellent spot for a staycation. We also noticed they have chickens and ducks in the garden – there may well be fresh eggs for breakfast! IRL Disney Princesses rejoice!
AirShip 002, Drimnin Highlands
You read that right: AirShip 002 is yours for the sleepin’.
It’s an insulated aluminum pod with all the standard amenities with the addition of a huge fishbowl type view of the Scottish coastline.
What’s that saying in space? No one can hear you snooze??
