One of these nights: Beech House

A cut above the usual serviced apartments, this is self-catering with a dash of boutique hotel. A marriage of period features and playful contemporary design, all the studios and home-from-home apartments come with Hypnos beds, rain showers in high-spec bathrooms and a great location between Clifton Village and the Harbourside. We love Apartment 4 (pictured below) with its loungey living space and pretty pink-and-scarlet fabrics.

A grand affair: De Vere Tortworth Estate

Grade II* listed and set in rolling Gloucestershire countryside, this magnificent pile has been the family seat of the Ducie family since 1631. Now it’s had a 21st century make-over – freshening up old rooms with a new take on a traditional British look (tweeds, leather and linens) and adding eleven new bedrooms and suites. In the giant Kipling Suite (pictured above left) you get in-room dining, a large lounge area, fluffy robes, slippers, luxury toiletries and enough room to swing a lion. You can also enjoy drinks, afternoon tea or dinner in their grand 1853 Restaurant & Bar.

Royal splendour: Thornbury Castle

Things didn’t turn out too well for the young Tudor Queen, but this magnificent 16th century castle once played the love-nest for Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn - and the place oozes history (think oak panelling, roaring fires, and a dungeon dining room). Choose from 28 splendid bedchambers all with truly king-size beds: the 10-footer in the Tower Room is said to be the widest in Britain.
