TOWN

Hack­ney-based in­te­rior de­signer Marta Now­icka has cu­rated a col­lec­tion of ar­chi­tec­turally en­gag­ing houses avail­able to rent and gath­ered them on a new web­site named af­ter the Pol­ish word for house, ‘ dom’. Our favourite is ‘St John’s’ (right) in the Sus­sex river­side town of Rye, which Now­icka de­signed her­self. The con­verted 1950s St John am­bu­lance sta­tion sleeps ten: light floods in, but it’s the beams and wood­burn­ing stove that ap­peal in au­tumn (from £500 per night; dom­stayan­dlive.com).

COUN­TRY

The cal­i­bre of es­tate agent The Mod­ern House’s prop­er­ties is fa­mous – it cherry-picks only the crème de la crème of con­tem­po­rary homes to sell – but did you know that it also or­gan­ises short-term hol­i­day rentals? As it says, ‘when we go on hol­i­day, we don’t like to leave good de­sign be­hind’. Its best Bri­tish list­ings in­clude ‘Mill House’ (right) in West Sus­sex, ‘The Cat­tle Sheds’ in Nor­folk by ar­chi­tect Carl Turner and ‘The Cob’ and ‘The Red Barn’ in Devon (prop­er­ties from £800 per week; the­mod­ern­house.com).
