Enjoy a ‘tale as old as time’ at a French chateau so beautiful, it’s enough to make Beauty and the Beast blush.

Alongside amazing accommodation for up to 19 guests, there’s a tennis court, games room and beautiful extensive gardens.

Even Rapunzel’s locks might struggle to reach the base of the legendary Lendal Tower in York.

Up to six holidaymakers can enjoy once in a lifetime luxury accommodation and amazing views from the roof terrace – perfect for keeping an eye out for your beloved.

Woodlands Cottage may not be ancient, but the fairytale holidays it offers really are timeless.

Lovely interiors, a relaxing garden and beautiful surrounding woodland create an enchanting spell of relaxation for two guests and two pets.

Fairytales prove that good things come in small packages, so it is with Deer Park in Yorkshire, a lovely miniature castle.

Despite its modest size, it still sleeps 10 and three pets – enough room for Snow White, her prince, all seven dwarves and a wicked stepmother.

More bright and beautiful than a Disney animation, this stunning French chateau offers a holiday for the ages.

Superb accommodation is surrounded by nearly three hectares of walled gardens with statues and a mosaic tiled swimming pool.

A stunning fairytale property with a side-order of whimsy! There are few better places to play princess than this incredible 14th Century castle.

This conversion in Scotland even has a hot-tub. Beat that, Cinderella!

This particular region boasts more castles per acre than anywhere else in the UK. It’s basically a real-life Disneyworld.

But we doubt even Sleeping Beauty slept as well as guests lucky enough to experience this cute and cozy cottage annexe.

This converted wing of a Grade II listed mansion offers fairytale wonder and modern comfort for up to six happy holidaymakers.

There’s even a large clock tower in the courtyard, so there’s no excuse to miss the strike of midnight!
