The Landmark Trust
is an independent UK building preservation charity which was founded in 1965 to rescue worthwhile historic buildings from neglect, and then to restore and let them for holidays. The income from letting contributes to their upkeep. There are now 178 Landmarks spread across Britain, four in Italy and two in Vermont, USA. They include follies, forts, manor houses, mills, cottages, castles, gatehouses and towers. You can stay in any of these buildings.
