home and away

Fancy nosing around some amazing holiday rentals? Yep, thought so… and I’ve got some absolute corkers for you. The company Luxury Country Rentals has six properties on its books and each one has been tastefully and sympathetically decorated according to their environment. They consist of two beach houses in West Sussex (this is how I got lured onto their website in the first place, quelle surprise), a Cotswolds townhouse, a thatched cottage in Marlborough, then overseas they have a ski lodge in Wyoming and a “beach castle” in Uruguay. That’s quite a collection! I picked my four favourites – although I’d quite happily stay in them all – and the elements I like about each…
Buttoned chairs, an outside kitchen, sequined cushions and distressed shutters. Oh and a giant bathtub with a view directly out onto the beach. That is what you call perfection, my friends.

I love the patriotic touches and the cosy farmhouse feel of this place. Check out the uh-may-zing candlelit terrace. Sold. And nice how they’ve put out a bottle of red waiting for me.

Beaten up leather armchairs? Check. Bright and light-filled open plan living? Check. Big squashy sofas suitable for napping? Abso-chuffing-lutely.

I mean, really? That covered deck area? Seriously? I die. And then they throw an infinity pool and obscenely beautiful views into the mix, and my head just about explodes.
