The Landmark Trust is a charity that identifies historic places in danger and carefully restores them. The buildings are available for holidays and can be enjoyed by all. With 200 buildings across Britain and a few in Italy, there is a spectacular selection of properties to choose from. Landmark offers a building selection ranging from countryside cottages to ancient castles and towers on coastal paths.
Staying at a Landmark building entails waking up to breath-taking views, rolling hills, seascapes, woodlands and more. Spruced up with elegant and cosy interior design, these properties are in high demand. The Landmark team is now accepting bookings into 2024!
Wilderness Reserve offers its guests 8000 acres of woodland, lakes, hilly pastures and an eclectic collection of historic buildings in Suffolk. Each home is lovingly restored and designed to boast charming character. Restored with the aim of protecting English nature, these homes make the perfect family getaway or romantic retreat. Your stay at a Woodland Reserve property also promises unforgettable experiences – including access to over 40 distinct activities to make the most of the open spaces, lakes and woodland.
The 19th-century Georgian Manor House, Sibton Park, is our favourite. Built in 1840, the 14-bedroom venue was sensitively restored and lovingly furnished. Details include hand-painted Chinese wallpaper in the Drawing Room, fine antique furniture and individually decorated bedrooms. The orangery seats up to 150 guests, making it a perfect wedding or large family destination. During your stay, you’ll look out across a rolling landscape of pasture, woodland and a serpentine lake.
