Part two of Bridgerton season three is finally here—and with it the continuation of the trials and tribulations of the fictional Bridgerton siblings as they attempt to find love in a fantastical version of Regency-era London. Set during the early 19th century, the Netflix romance series brings Georgian architecture and sprawling English gardens to life with its brightly colored production design. And while it’s no longer commonplace to don sparkling ball gowns to attend debutante balls—as the characters do in the hit Shonda Rhimes show—there are still ways to get a taste of the Bridgerton lifestyle on your next trip across the pond.

One of the easiest is by booking a stay at a grand villa in the British countryside or even a historic apartment in a city like Bath. Luckily, hundreds of preserved Georgian-era properties are available to book throughout England, as well as Ireland. Whether you’re longing for a secluded getaway or a lavish property that’s closer to London, these nine Bridgerton-inspired vacation rentals will give you everything you need to live out your wildest 19th-century dreams.

Ashman’s Hall in Suffolk

  • Location: Beccles, England
  • Sleeps: 24
  • Book now: airbnb.com

Located in Beccles, a charming market town in Suffolk, this Palladian-style country house was built in 1820, during the same period when the series is set. Its interiors bring to mind the Bridgerton family home, thanks to its grand double staircase and towering ceilings. Each of the nine bedrooms at Ashman’s Hall is painted in a unique pastel color reminiscent of the show’s whimsical production design. In the garden, you’ll find perfectly manicured hedges, plus a decidedly more modern outdoor kitchen outfitted with a barbecue grill, wine fridge, and pizza oven.

Norfolk Crescent apartment in Bath

  • Location: Bath, England
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Book now: airbnb.com

The Roman-era city of Bath is a popular hub for Bridgerton-related travel, with the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa standing in for the home of Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan). But that’s not the only “crescent” in town: These Georgian-era architectural landmarks are terraced houses laid out in grand arcs, and there are seven throughout the city. If you want to stay in one of your own, this one-bedroom apartment is located in Norfolk Crescent, built between about 1793 and 1822. It’s equipped with modern amenities, like an updated kitchen, an in-unit washer, and a work-from-home setup. The stay places guests in the heart of Bath, and it is situated near the filming locations for the Featherington Residence, Lady Danbury’s Residence (actually the Holburne Museum), and many street scenes in Bridgerton.

Bell View Manor in the London suburbs

A comfortable 16-person villa in the southeast London suburb of Sidcup, this seven-bedroom manor is modern but opulent enough to make you feel like you’re a member of the show’s aristocracy. It’s equipped with a cinema room (where guests can host marathons of the first three seasons), a game room (with enough space for a round of billiards), an indoor swimming pool, and a sweeping garden (where you can chat with the person you’re courting with the utmost privacy). This stay is about a 20-minute drive away from one of the show’s most iconic filming locations, the Ranger’s House, which is the set for the Bridgerton family home.

For those like Lord Debling (Sam Phillips), who prefer the stillness of nature to the bustling life of the London social scene, this two-bedroom stay is in a private wing of a Georgian manor house in a quiet corner of East Sussex.

Ash Willow House in Yorkshire

Looking for a location with a bit more privacy? This five-bedroom stay just outside of York is perfect for a retreat into the northern British countryside that balances the past and the present. While the interior is thoroughly modernized, housing a movie room, an updated kitchen with funky wallpaper, and a cabana bar, the exterior transports guests back to the past. The four-bedroom house (each of its rooms sleeps at least three) is a 20-minute drive from Castle Howard, which stood in for the show’s Clyvedon Castle, the home of the Duke of Hastings, Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page). Die-hard Bridgerton fans may also want to channel the equestrian spirit of season two love interest Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley) by booking a horseback experience at Lacy’s Cottage Riding School, which is less than a quarter-mile from the house.

Fox Hall in West Sussex

This Palladian-style manor was previously occupied by the actual Duke of Richmond in the 1730s, so it has a real wish fulfillment factor for Bridgerton fans. This is the kind of space that someone like Simon Basset might have lived in if he were real. A stay at Fox Hall means sleeping in the Duke of Richmond’s lavishly decorated hunting lodge; one of the beds sits in the same gilded alcove where the duke used to sleep, and its windows would have allowed him to spot game before his morning hunts. Located in the West Sussex hamlet of Charlton, Fox Hall is a real British historic landmark, so it’s perfect for visitors looking for a more authentic period stay.

This five-bedroom country house transports travelers back in time to the quiet of the rural Georgian era. The property is more than 200 years old; its antiques include a luxurious roll-top bath.

The town’s market days are lovely relics of the past, resembling the markets that Penelope Featherington explores throughout Bridgerton.
