Retro Retreat: 1970s Peter Aldington-designed Anderton House in Goodleigh, Devon

Fancy living out your midcentury fantasy for just a week or two? You can do that by booking yourself into this 1970s Peter Aldington-designed Anderton House in Goodleigh, Devon, which is available as a holiday let.

The house was commissioned for the Aldingtons in 1969, with an eye to being used as a retirement home. That's how it turned out, with the couple enjoying those views for 25 years after. Sadly, the house did fall into a bit of disrepair after, which is where the Landmark Trust came in, overseeing the renovation of this grade II-listed house ahead of it being used as a holiday let.

Not that you would notice the renovation - this place is like stepping back in time to the late '60s, with the added bonus of one or two modern-day extras (microwave, dishwasher and so on). Best of both worlds.

The house accommodates five people, with a single, a twin and a double room, with everything you need (except food and clothes) for a week away from it all. Four nights are priced from £382, depending on the time of year.

You can see more images and find out out more at the WowHaus site or see the Landmark Trust to book.
