Tremendous Towers

Adorned with fairytale turrets and romantic rooftops, towers make unforgettable holiday settings. Nestled in rolling landscapes or perched on the edge of towns and villages, we have 18 towers ranging from two to six storeys, each built across different periods in history with varying architectural design. We've rounded up seven of these extraordinary buildings, all ready to elevate your holiday to the next level.


The Prospect Tower

Built around 1808, the Prospect Tower is picturesque both inside and out. Situated on the very edge of the garden of stately parkland and approached by an avenue of walnut trees, it overlooks a cricket pitch and has glorious views from the rooftop. Inside, large sash windows frame the parkland perfectly, while the stained glass adds a splash of colour across the room as the light moves throughout the day.

Appleton Water Tower

As you approach Appleton, it’s hard to miss it for its impressive height, yet, surrounded by trees, it’s also nestled away for a tranquil woodland adventure. With Norfolk’s flat surrounding landscape, the rooftop offers 360° views for miles and is a memorable spot for catching sunrises or relaxing on the terrace as a warm sunset glow fades out to reveal a starlit sky.

Semaphore Tower

With views across Chatley Heath to the City of London, together with painted interior walls reminiscent of sky blue, a stay in the last remaining semaphore tower takes you above the treetops as if floating in a cloud. Built in 1822, the Semaphore Tower is a unique survival, commissioned in the aftermath of the Battle of Waterloo and once a cutting-edge building at the forefront of technology. Today it is a remarkable retreat in the heart of a nature reserve.

Freston Tower

Six storeys high, with 26 windows to enjoy views of the River Orwell estuary and surrounding countryside, this tower is a Tudor folly which was likely built to coincide with Elizabeth I’s visit to Ipswich in 1579. With a different room on each floor, each accessed by a wooden spiral staircase, wandering through the building can feel like you’ve stepped into your very own fairytale.

Peters Tower

Standing on the edge of the shore and located in the picturesque village of Lympstone, Peters Tower is a quirky place to spend a few days and ideal for solo travellers or couples. It’s only a short walk from Lympstone Commando railway station, so there is no need for those who stay here to arrive by car. Filled with cosy corners, beautiful views, and a writing nook, inspiration is in abundance.

Culloden Tower

At Culloden Tower guests can enjoy deck chairs on the roof terrace, with a cold drink in hand, or warm up by the ornate fireplace. Far reaching views accompany classical carving plaster work, making this a striking Landmark.

The tower is just a stone's throw away from the centre of Richmond, with its iconic castle, fine historic buildings, sweeping cobbled market place and leafy riverside vistas, it’s an ideal place for days out and relaxing evenings.

The Tower, Canons Ashby

There can be few houses in which every detail, inside and out, is so lovely to look at, but Canons Ashby is one of them. In 1980 the house was transferred to the National Trust after a public appeal and Landmark contributed to the restoration fund, including the creation and repair of the apartment guests enjoy today. Located on the top floor of this historic building, from the apartment you can explore the house for free or enjoy views of colourful, ornate gardens and the countryside beyond.
