We’re already picturing ourselves in the fluffy bathrobes and getting stuck into the REN toiletries at The Lodges; nestled in the picturesque Rother Valley, East Sussex.
The buildings were restored and furnished to an exceptional standard by DJ Jon Carter (whom we interviewed for the magazine last year) and his wonderful wife Nina – all with two baby twin daughters in tow (we’re guessing sleep-deprived Mummy and Daddy must have tested out the king-sized beds a few times!)
The properties boast roll top baths, woodburning stoves and wifi – plus there’s a heated pool and a hot tub outside.
As well as providing gorgeous, romantic (yet also child-friendly) rural escapes, The Lodges also offer retreats such as yoga or cooking courses. You could even take a foraging excursion, then have your own private chef knock up something delicious from your findings.
