3. The ultra cute modern cottage in Southampton

Hamptons’ properties can be all about the grandiose and the splendid (which isn’t a totally bad thing). But this little gem scores so high on the ‘adorable’ scale you might need to forcible stop yourself from continually squealing like an excited piglet. The manicured garden with winding path has an almost-English feel to it and the pointed roof is a little bit Alpine. The combination is wonderfully fairytale. In terms of the interiors, we’re in love with the floral wallpapers used throughout and the deliberate (but stylish) mishmash of chairs and furniture. Alongside all this cuteness is some high-quality luxury too, in particular the outdoor pool, the Peloton bike and a luxurious tub to soak in post-workout.

Rooms? Three bedrooms. Sleeps six guests.
The Mood? Sophisticated cottagecore, through and through.
Location perks? Just a ten-minute drive from the white sands of Cooper’s Beach.
Budget range? For the Hamptons, not so bad.
