Encircled by beautiful countryside in the heart of rural Devon, The Belvedere Tower (sleeps two) is a heavenly spot for a romantic retreat.

This newly-converted 18th century folly offers clever pared-back interiors and a rooftop decked area amid the castellations that’s ideal for Indian Summer sundowners, al fresco dining or a spot of night-time stargazing.

Dartmoor National Park and the spectacular North Devon coast are also close by… if you can tear yourselves away.

A week’s stay in September costs from £198 pp (£395 total).
