Settle down with a good book…

How lovely to get carried away by a good book, we have plenty of properties with literary connections.  It is very enticing for those who love books and a perfect activity for a relaxing break away from home where there is time for adults and children alike to open the first page of a new book or re read a well loved classic.

The Highlands, set in Iden in East Sussex – not far from the sea, could be straight out of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books!  You can imagine the children rushing downstairs and out into the countryside on another adventure, with a supply of ginger biscuits and lashings of lemonade!

Dunes Beach House in Thorpeness, Suffolk is perfect for a bookish holiday; J M Barrie – the author of Peter Pan was a regular visitor to the village.  You can hire boats to go rowing around the little islands which are named after some of the characters in the children’s classic!

Peaceful and tranquil with lots of stunning places to explore – the nearby town of Lacock is entirely protected by the National Trust and is prime location for film productions including Harry Potter and The Other Boleyn Girl.
