Belmont Penthouse Apartment
This is another wonderfully luxurious countryside stay, and we definitely recommended giving it a look if you’re looking to make a visit to Blaise Castle. This is just a 5-minute drive from the Blaise Castle Estate, or around a 30-minute walk away. It’s a bit of a way if you choose to walk, but the tucked away nature of the museum means the walk is a little further, no matter where you choose to stay. Besides, the countryside views and gorgeous, breath-taking scenery mean that the walk is well worth your while, and much more pleasant.
When you book this property, you get access to the entire apartment to yourself. It will be just you there, keeping your trip quiet, private, and out of the way.
This two-story apartment brings in wonderful influences from across a number of different periods and era, from art nouveau and art deco pieces, to elements with an undeniably Victorian or Georgian feeling to them. All of these eclectic design elements are incorporated, whilst still retaining a modern and contemporary feeling. This patchwork of designs works splendidly, resulting in a unique and unforgettable look.
The apartment has one separate bedroom, with one extra large double bed in it, as well as three bathrooms, and a living room. The terrace gives you a great space to enjoy the views and fresh air of the countryside.
Perhaps the most exciting element of this stay, and what provides the most luxurious elements are the massage services and the wellness centre, including a hot tub and sauna. The perfect place to relax and unwind.
The price for one night here is £542 and the host accepts couples or families, but not groups of adults at the property.
