Wake to crisp duvets and organic croissants in elegant Saint Germain, wander through lush flower gardens and national parks from a sophisticated Spanish hacienda or take a ferry ride to quaint Cornish fishing villages from a boutique hotel overlooking the Fowey estuary.
For an overseas escape:

A beautiful Algarve villa perfect for switching off with a loved one. Tuck into complimentary tea and cake by the pool, sip organic wines from the vineyard and stroll the stunning gardens. Bedrooms are luxurious and organic oils are provided in the bathrooms.
When home is where the heart is:
A romantic rural retreat hidden down a quiet lane near the Lakes. You’re spoilt for picturesque walks from the doorstep, and foodies will love the proximity to Cartmel and its variety of brilliant restaurants. A soak in the candlelit hot tub in the courtyard is a wonderful end to the day.
A contemporary hotel on the Fowey waterfront, with elegant rooms and a dining terrace overlooking the estuary. Dine on fresh seafood while overlooking the sparkling waters, or pack a picnic and head to Lantic Bay for lunch on the beach. Return to your room for a relaxing soak in the free-standing bath.
A stylish, contemporary barn overlooking a peaceful pond and fields of sheep. The courtyard is a real suntrap – perfect for relaxing with a morning coffee, or watching the sunset with a glass of something chilled. Walk or cycle through miles of unspoilt countryside, or take a day trip to the beach.
