We might be midway through summer already, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rally the family together to make one final trip to unwind. Here are our top 3 relaxing destinations to visit this summer:
1. Manoir de Longeveau, Poitou-Charentes, France
A former Cognac Estate, Manoir de Longeveau is located on the Charente/Dordogne border, where the region is renowned for its amazing climate and valleys that extend beyond what the eye can see. Wine lovers have the chance to visit numerous chateaux and wine caves that line the Bordeaux wine trail. And they haven’t forgotten about the little ones. Activities range from swimming, tennis and basketball to crazy golf and horse riding.
2. Rose Cottage, Devon
For anyone who’s ever wanted to simply unplug from the hectic city life, but isn’t quite ready to leave their phones or laptops behind, the Rose Cottage offers that perfect mix between 18th century hideaway and 21st century luxury.
Set in the rural village of High Bickington this village dates back to Saxon times with great access to Exmoor, Dartmoor and the North Devon coastline where children can discover endless fields or build fortresses on nearby beaches.
3. Woolley Grange, Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire
This beautiful estate can be traced as far back as the 16th century. Now, it stands proudly as a luxury family-friendly holiday getaway.
Relax in their custom-built spa, located in a stunning walled garden, while the children roam freely in their Good Life Garden.
