As part of our series of articles this week in partnership with Love Home Swap, the global home swapping platform, we’re taking a closer look at some of the impressive properties you could enjoy for a UK staycation.

Details of our special 3-month free trial of Love Home Swap for HfP readers can be found at the bottom of the article. Later in the week we will look at some of the options available outside the UK ….. once we’re allowed out again!

Peak District

Hazel’s home is a huge hit with the Love Home Swap community, and it’s not hard to see why. Based in a picturesque village in the Peak District National Park, this unique property is a converted chapel dating back to 1866.

The open plan kitchen leads onto a raised dining and lounge area, all floodlit by the red stained-glass windows. Guests will benefit from a wraparound garden, and a short stroll to two excellent local pubs.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms leading off the mezzanine level, the home comfortably accommodates five people. With views over the fields, it’s the ideal spot for walkers.

Cumbria

Marylou and Roger’s stunning barn conversion has also garnered rave reviews from Love Home Swap members. With a large roof terrace leading from the main bedroom, the house is surrounded by the most spectacular views of the Eden Valley.

With three bedrooms, a large, enclosed garden and a unique decking area that overlooks the fields, guests can make the most of lazy days at home. And if the weather turns against you? Then the log-burning stove in the living room is the perfect spot to unwind.

Lose a few hours in the cosy kitchen. Alternatively, guests who are feeling energetic will enjoy the Lake District (just a 25-minute drive away), with gorge walking, abseiling, cycling and fishing all on the doorstep. For a dose of culture, head to Hutton in The Forest Stately home or Carlisle Cathedral.

Bath

Zoe’s home is a stunning Victorian conversion. Completed in 2016 with a unique architect-designed extension, it is on the Lower Weston side of Bath, just ten minutes’ walk from the Royal Crescent and city centre.

Boasting two bathrooms and four stylish bedrooms which can sleep up to eight people, the property is the ideal location for a peaceful city getaway. Guests can make the most of Bath’s numerous boutique shops and restaurants, before retreating home to enjoy the immaculate garden and open-plan kitchen.

The house is beautifully light and airy thanks to the impressive bay windows and the addition of a number of skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows in the modern extension.

Devon

Victoria’s luxurious barn conversion enjoys incredible views over the Avon Valley, and is ideally located for walking, swimming and sightseeing. There’s plenty to do in the area, with Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Totnes, Dartmouth and Burgh Island all just a short drive away.

Set in 2 acres of land, there are four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two very large reception rooms (one with log burner) – so there’s lots of room for the whole family.

The stylish kitchen has been recently renovated, and features a large island with seating for six, plus plenty of mod-cons including an American-style fridge freezer.

With a paved terrace that borders an impressive countryside-view garden, this is a great home for kids and adults alike. There are also two paddocks and an orchard to explore!

Brighton & Hove

Niki and Graham’s funky upside-down home is an architect-designed conversion of a retro 1960s house. With a hilltop location, the home enjoys views of both the sea and woodland. Boasting colourful interiors and stylish decor throughout, every nook and cranny offers something unique.

There are five bedrooms which can sleep up to ten, as well as two bathrooms. With open-plan living, the luxurious kitchen/diner is the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring The Lanes and Brighton beach.

Key selling points include the fact that the owners are pet-friendly – and that guests will have access to their private heated pool, terraced gardens, the services of their cleaner and the use of a Fiat!
