British vineyards that you can book on Airbnb for a wine-themed stay
In case you haven’t had it on your calendar, this week is English Wine Week, with the focus on making and consuming great wines here on our doorstep.
Likewise, this summer has been mostly spent planning a holiday on the UK’s coasts, with travel restrictions derailing most overseas travel plans.
This means that the demand for “stays” has increased dramatically, but there is still time to give yourself a wonderful break, even if you cannot fly.
You can take a trip to a British vineyard for a day of tasting, but if you’re a budding sommelier why not make it your vacation?
These properties on Airbnb are all located in or near some of the best wineries in the country and cost just £ 81 a night to stay.
‘The Hide’ on The Vineyard, Dorset
“The Hide” is a shepherd’s hut, cabin and shower room that overlooks Little Waddon Vineyard with valley and sea views.
