There’s nothing run-of-the-mill about Marston Park, a “playground for creativity” beautifully located between Frome and Bruton in Somerset. Here, guests can create their own masterpieces in furnished canvas studio-suites set around a Victorian lake.

So, it’s fitting that this flourishing site is the proud temporary home of an authentic Futuro House – an iconic spaceship-style retreat that’s one of very few available to stay in worldwide.

Created by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, the Futuro House design represents a piece of 1960s pop culture history. Now there are only 68 known still to exist in the world, many of which are exhibited in museums across the globe.

Lovingly restored by artist Craig Barnes over the best part of a decade (and featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces), Futuro at Marston Park is a genuine one-of-a-kind stay, complete with private facilities and idyllic lake views.

Sleeping up to four guests, you can savour your fascinating, retro Scandi-hygge-style surroundings, which feature mood lighting and studio monitor speakers to help you create the perfect atmosphere. 

Meanwhile, you’ll enjoy full access to the amazing on-site facilities – which include a sumptuous bar and restaurant, and regular entertainment, for a truly unforgettable break in every sense.
