How you can live your Bridgerton fantasy this summer

Looking for a unique staycation to look forward to later in the year? You can now rent a Georgian palace to live out your own romantic series of Bridgerton.

The property, York House, is a magnificent five-star duplex-apartment in an elegant Georgian town house, located just a stone’s throw away from Sidmouth’s beach front in Devon. It’s easy to be mistaken for one of the many lavish homes features in the period drama and is available to rent for breaks from Sweetcombe Cottage Holidays.

With its striking period features and luxury decor, you could be forgiven for thinking you too were young aristocrat Daphne Bridgerton navigating her way through the twists and turns of true love.

Adorned with magnificent chandeliers and interiors in the now-famous shade of “Bridgerton Blue”, the apartment boasts two suites each leading to the balcony with magnificent views of the Esplanade and Lyme Bay as well as a nautical bunk room for the children and two marble bathrooms.

With splendid views across the sea and Lyme Bay, it could be just the place for you to live out your own high society dreams post-lockdown, although sadly, no Duke of Hastings is included.

Polly Burns, Manager at Sweetcombe Cottage Holidays said, “York House is just fabulous! It’s the perfect place to experience the regency town of Sidmouth and treat yourself to that little bit of luxury.”

Best of all, if you can tear yourself away from the beauty of the coast, a day trip to Bath is highly recommended. Less than two hours drive, you can visit several of Bridgerton’s main filming locations including Madame Delacroix’s Modiste, the Royal Crescent and the Guildhall.

The property sleeps up to six guests, with a seven-night stay starting from £700 - what would Lady Whistledown say about that!
