One of my favourite UK charities is the Landmark Trust, an amazingly smart organization which restores old manors, churches and other buildings in the UK (and Italy and the US) and rents them out as holiday homes. My family stayed in two knitters’ cottages in the Cotswolds a number of years ago. This summer, Landmark turns 50 and they’re having all sorts of celebrations.
I thought I’d share some of their most interesting properties. Most of them are actually rather inexpensive if you have a group of people or a family, and you work out the comparable cost of booking a hotel.
Queen Anne’s Summerhouse, Sleeps two.
Most of these properties are available beginning in 2016, and for four nights are the equivalent of $30-$90 per person, per night. They are all self-catering and are equipped with basic provisions. But part of the fun is being able to hang out, cook meals, play games and get to know the villages and towns where these properties are located.
