We all love a bit of summer sun, but with so many beautiful homes in the UK, you might want to consider taking your jolly holiday here this year! As well as being able to rent a gorgeous home, you could save some serious money by choosing to stay in the country for your summer jaunt but don't see a UK holiday as a compromise! When you see how stunning some of the homes being designed by master architects in Britain are, we know you'll want to jump in the car as apposed to in a plane, so let's have a look at some of our favourites to see if you are inspired to book that striking cottage you've had your eye on!

1. Country heaven.

Perfect for any city-dwellers, a rustic cottage in the country would be all the relaxation needed, especially if it looked like this one! Bliss!

2. Coastal perfection.
