It’s mid-July and most people planned their 2013 summer holidays yonks ago… but even the best laid plans can fall through, and Landed Houses is here to help! Here are my top picks from the houses that are available:
The extended family want to stay somewhere together and the grandparents are coming too. Granny/Grandpa/Nan/Grandad/Grandma are used to their creature comforts and a seaside B&B is not really their style. Solution? Chaffeymoor Grange in Dorset. It is available from 9th August to 12th August for £3,200 and sleeps 20. I have visited the house – it’s very comfortable and has the benefit of a tennis court too.
You are about to turn 30/40/50/60/70/90/100 and realise that a drink in your local pub just isn’t sufficient for this monumental occasion. You also have lots of friends and they’re all very interested in history, old houses and getting a decent night’s kip. Solution? Eardisland Manor in Herefordshire. It’s available from 16th August to 19th August for £2,400 and sleeps 28. A 17th century house with a 42-inch television? Best of both worlds!
You have worked really hard this year (or quite hard anyway), and are ready to celebrate with your friends. You’ve been negelecting them for a while and it’s time to remind your friends and family that (a) you exist and (b) you’re a generous soul. Solution? Treat them to a long weekend at Sparkford Hall in Somerset. It’s avaible from 29th July to 2nd August for £2,500 and sleeps 28. It’s accessible from London and has recently been refurbished to a very high standard.
Note: All these properties are available at the time of writing but may not remain so. There are plenty more houses available on our main site (landedhouses.co.uk) and special offers are listed there too.
