Did you see our recent feature on the Mirror Online?

England is full of secret corners to tuck yourself away in, from quaint and cosy, to grand and stunning. Ten of our wonderful retreats have been featured on the Mirror Online as unique holiday destinations worth visiting. Read the article here...

For a little bit of grandeur, why not gather a group for a castle getaway?

This Grade II listed bailey castle has its own castellated roof terrace and provides 360 degree views of the surrounding Devonshire countryside from its position atop a grassy hill.

With an ornate panelled ceiling, turrets, fourposter beds and a spiral staircase, you'll certainly be holidaying in style.

With a neoclassical twist, the Gate Lodge has an interesting design set over two floors.

Two gate lodges have been cleverly connected underground to form a two-bedroom property that is both modern and light.

The downstairs features two private patios that are protected by gently sloping grassy banks and around you, you have 4,500 acres of parkland to explore with footpaths, meadows and woodland to enjoy.
