A warm welcome awaits in Jordans, the historic Quaker village   With just two guest bedrooms, Spindrift at Jordans is a cosy refuge in a beautiful part of the Chilterns. A sense of peace and tranquillity pervades the house. In the family living room is a grand piano once owned by Queen Alexandra, and sometimes Norma can be persuaded to play. A huge part of Spindrift's appeal is in its spectacular two-acre gardens, divided into different levels, each with an atmosphere all of its own. There's the Hosta Garden, lush with foliage, a terraced garden tumbling with Irishes and a separate Monet Garden that shares its shape and colour palette with the world-famous gardens at Giverny. For a quieter mood head down into the wooded dell, or stroll through the kitchen garden to see choose your selection of fresh food for a salad. These gardens have been nurtured by Norma and her family for over half a century: unsurprisingly the gardens are open to the public during Open Garden Week but visitors aren't allowed in the swimming pool - which is strictly for guests.  The village's history goes back to the distant past: many Stone Age flint axes have been found here, many of which can be seen at the British Museum. But it achieved an international significance in the 17th century when Quakerism started: their Meeting House still stands on the outskirts of the village. Jordans was at the heart of the movement when persecution drove many to start the new colony in America and the village has a barn built using timbers from the Mayflower, which carried some of the founding fathers to America. At that time nearby Chalfont St Giles was also home to the poet John Milton, whose cottage still stands and is open to the public as a museum to his memory. Spindrift itself was designed itself by the Quaker architects Fred and Douglas Rowntree, descendants of the famous confectionary family.

One of Hampshire's oldest buildings now transformed into a luxurious B&B  Find a ready welcome into a family home that blends traditional grandeur with very modern comforts. Three guest bedrooms ooze period charm on a stately-home scale, beautifully developed into a luxury mansion very much of the current age. The opportunity to stay in this historic property is not to be missed. At its heart is a medieval five-bay core dating back to 1333 that may have been a monastery. Since 1480 it has been owned by only four families, most recently by the Bullens, descendants of Anne Boleyn. Recent generations have included the noted artist Anne Bullen, many of whose paintings are still found in the house, and five-times Olympic event rider Michael Bullen, whose horses’ descendants still graze the 90-acre estate.

The Old Hall

Blessed by the air of the North Sea coast this home is rich with history and full of character  Jane Austen was clear in Emma that the air on the Cromer coast would repair any ills. Not five miles inland: it had to be coastal. This property fits that perfectly: you can walk to the sea in minutes. Relax in the gardens – designed by Gertrude Jekyll though quite some time ago – and breathe deeply on the curative air. Old Hall was built as a 17th century Jacobean shooting lodge, complete with sprung floors for Highland reels. It was later owned by Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton, a prolific author of books against the slave trade, friend of William Wilberforce and Member of Parliament in an era where a feeling of responsibility held force. His sense of philanthropy permeates the property and brings a sense of community to an outstanding period property.
