Old Smock Windmill

Price: £175 per night (£190 at weekends)

Sleeps: Two people

This rustic windmill in the Kent countryside is most romantic for couples looking for a weekend away. This four-storey building has been carefully and lovingly restored, with exposed brick and white weatherboard on the exterior, and the original wooden beams remain inside with a giant spur wheel and sack hoist as the main display. But fear not – despite the rustic interiors, the windmill features a thoroughly modern bathroom with bathtub and shower. Surrounded by the Benenden countryside, this place is perfect for summer rambling and winter cosiness. Plus, a welcome basket includes the owner’s organic chicken eggs – could it get anymore quaint?

Castle Tower, Aberdeenshire

Price: £145 per night

Sleeps: Four people

For a sleep with more than a bit of history, spend a few nights in the tower of this 13th century castle. The accommodation has its original staircase but a slightly more modern bedroom (fear not), and comes complete with a billiard room that houses a snooker table and a selection of board games. And, if you visit in the winter, the owners would happily light you a cosy fire.

The Blue House, UK

Price: £530 per night

Sleeps: Eight people

Who knew you could get a taste of California right here in East Sussex? This modernist House is based on the sandy beaches of Camber, meaning you can literally run from your bed into the seas in approximately five seconds – but if you’re not ready for a dip just yet, you can watch others do it from your bed, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. Perfect for a birthday away or a staycation, stay here with a big group – and bring your pets!
