Time to dim the lights, reach for a few candles or perhaps light a cosy fire or barbecue, with two obligatory champagne flutes teasingly sitting on standby. Our latest trio of newly added properties are all perfectly suited to couples and each offers its own unique setting, style and inimitable charm. Choose from a hot-tub equipped and extraordinary roundhouse in Cornwall, a serene and bespoke-crafted treetop escape in Sussex or a beachfront nautical-themed chalet with just the horizon – or each other – to gaze at.
A couples escape with glamping at its heart yet fused with an added dose of luxury and hospitality from its friendly owners, East Thorne Roundhouse (above and main picture) is the perfect alternative Cornish getaway. Once you enter your stylish larch-clad Roundhouse you will be convinced that opulence and nature are a match made in paradise. An indulgent new addition to the popular yurt accommodation already offered by East Thorne, the added privacy and modern, fun interior decor will complement your natural countryside setting near Bude beautifully. Did we mention the private wood-fired hot tub yet? Imagine enjoying an evening barbecue before dipping your toes in the perfectly warm waters with a glass of your favourite tipple. With the added option of luxury hampers and chef-cooked meals, this is decadence that is designed to thrill.
Located in the peaceful East Sussex village of Ticehurst – Tinkers Lane, to be exact! – Tinkers Treehouse is privately set within five gloriously secluded acres of leafy woodland, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This luxurious and romantic treetop hideaway is surrounded by nature (including resident deer) on the outside and plenty of hotel-style luxury inside, from underfloor heating to a soothing rainfall shower, along with cosy rugs and feathered lampshades to add a touch of rustic class. Your glorious open-plan space features everything from a 32″ TV and a squashy leather sofa, to a fully fitted kitchen and log burning stove for that relaxing evening atmosphere for two. At the end of a long day exploring the area, curl up in the downy king-sized bed and awake to the joyous sounds of birdsong as you prepare a hearty breakfast. Bliss!
Seasalter is an easy beach escape when busy London life starts to take its toll and Beach Retreat could well be your ticket to a perfect seaside bolthole! Located just a stone’s throw from Whitstable – which is enjoying a surge of popularity and gentrification over the past few years – you can enjoy a perfect and quintessential British beach holiday in this charming chalet-style beach house, taking in full and uninterrupted views of the Swale Estuary and Whitstable Bay from your private beach garden to the front, and gorgeous Kent countryside views from the rear. The soft-tone nautical decor fits perfectly with its surroundings. Ideal for couples (though you may also bring an infant under 3), you can pull up a deckchair and kick back in style, prepare some beach snacks, or even fire up the barbecue for a romantic balmy summer’s evening.
