The UK can boast having many thousands of beautiful houses, with many of them being period homes. Protecting our heritage is important and thanks to people falling in love with these properties, they are often painstakingly restored to their former glory. Here are just a few of the most stunning period homes in the UK:

This building was designed in 1848 by the Gothic revival architect, John Hayward. It is thought to be one of the most lovely examples of a parsonage in the country. It features a walled and landscaped garden, including fruit and vegetable gardens.

Ogle Castle, Northumberland

For a residence with some serious history, this Grade I listed building was the castle in which King David II of Scotland was imprisoned in 1348 during the battle of Nevills Cross. It is said to be one of the oldest inhabited buildings in the region, so if you like the idea of walking the halls where many have trodden before you, then this castle will set you back approximately £1.5 million.
