£1 mil­lion: over in the pretty Lincolnshire Wolds, Raithby Manor, 15 miles from Skeg­ness, is a very im­pres­sive pile in­deed. It would make the grand­est of week­end re­treats — but the house and its gated grounds would also be a su­perb lo­ca­tion for a B&B busi­ness.

There is plenty to do here for all the fam­ily. The gar­den has a ten­nis court, sta­bles, an or­chard with ap­ple, pear and cherry trees, wood­land ar­eas with nat­u­ral ponds, and there’s an an­nexe ready to let above a triple garage.

The house it­self has four bed­rooms that you could also turn into guest suites, plus charm­ing re­cep­tion rooms with log burn­ers, a kitchen com­plete with an Aga, and a games room set up for snooker. Just two miles away is the his­toric mar­ket town of Spilsby, ideal for ex­plor­ing.

The manor is on the mar­ket with Hunters (01754 484002).

The Mill House in Billing­shurst, in the heart of the Sus­sex Weald, dates from 1766.

This sub­stan­tial, part-tim­bered home has been skil­fully re­stored to of­fer an oak-pan­elled snug warmed by an open fire, el­e­gant din­ing and draw­ing rooms and a be­spoke fam­ily kitchen, plus an or­angery. Six bed­rooms and bath­rooms have en­vi­able views over 12 acres of gar­dens, with a swim­ming pool, duck pond and ten­nis court. There’s a sep­a­rate two-bed­room guest cot­tage con­verted from a brick barn, a new sta­ble block for six horses and an of­fice and gym in an­other barn.

Billing­shurst sta­tion, for Lon­don and Gatwick trains, is less than four miles away. Call Sav­ills (01483 660057).
