We’ll even provide a friendly Corgi to accompany you for the day so you can sip a glass of sparkling English wine, play with your furry pal and channel your inner queen.

And to make it extra special, we’ll provide the fanciest of regal outfits, so you’ll not only feel like a queen, you’ll look like one too.

Fit for a royal, the Platinum Jubilee Package is available at the suitably named Elizabethan Manor. A rural retreat nestled in the heart of Pulborough, West Sussex, this Grade II-listed property is rumoured to have previously welcomed blue blood through its opulent doors, making it the perfect place to live like a royal. Outside, guests have 1.4 acres of private countryside to explore with their Corgi in tow, with afternoon tea served as you soak up the sun from the terrace – sparkling wine on the side.
Lostwithiel Manor is set in a wonderful private estate surrounded by immaculate gardens with fantastic walking trails. Complete with elegant interiors, the Grade II-listed home is steeped in history, making it the perfect choice for those in search of a palace fit for a princess. Luminaries, royals, and other famous personalities have all stayed at this impressive manor: from King Charles I, who is said to have spent the night in what is now the King’s Bedroom, to Thomas “Diamond” Pitt, the former Governor of Madras. The poet Thomas Gray and Sir Josiah Wedgwood are also among the previous guest list you’ll be joining.
Built in 1745, Inglethorpe Hall was once a substantial North Norfolk private estate and residence. Still set in thirty acres of private grounds and parkland, it offers exceptional views across the Wash and is one of only several Grade II-listed country houses in England. Standing tall for over 100 years, this home is bursting with historic value and charm, plus plenty of unique quirks! It also happens to be only a stone’s throw from Sandringham, which is the Queen’s countryside retreat of choice – keep your eyes peeled when you head out on your walk!
Found on a stunning four-acre estate in the heart of the Cotswolds, the Grade I-listed Wilfred Manor has been exceptionally restored while still boasting characterful nods to its incredible past. In fact, King Charles I is said to have stayed here after he took refuge within the manor during the siege of Gloucester in 1643. Today, this imposing property can comfortably accommodate up to 22 guests – ideal for a big blowout celebration this June.
Gothic Castle is located on the shores of a private lake, just a short distance from Galway City and Shannon International Airport. Guests can uncover a variety of trails around the grounds, offering ample opportunity for walkers, runners, cyclists and bird watchers to wander through unspoiled woodlands. These paths were also once walked by Prince Charles and Camilla, who stayed at the property only a few years ago and similarly love to surround themselves with nature.
Ayrshire Castle, Scotland’s most exclusive holiday home, has lived several lives since its construction in the 15th century as a wedding gift for Princess Mary, daughter of James II of Scotland. Once a court and prison, now it is restored as a luxurious accommodations for 12-14 guests. If you want to step back in time, visit the prison space under the flagstone door – there’s even a murder hole for pouring oil on intruders!
