Plum Guide Award Winner

Boundary Cottage is a Plum Guide Award Winner!

We are thrilled to have received this award by The Plum Guide. Only the top 3% of homes in each destination win the Plum Guide Award!

To win the Plum Award, homes must pass all 4 stages of The Plum Test, culminating in a personal home visit from an independent Home Critic.

How does it work?

    1. Every time the Plum Guide launch a new destination, they create a database of all the homes available.
    2. They then systematically review every home, and shortlist the ones with great design, with great reviews, in great locations.
    3. After a host interview, the top contenders are nominated for the Plum Award. These are our up and coming homes.
    4. To win the Plum Award, a home needs to complete two final stages: it must delight a Plum Guide guest, and it must pass the Plum Home Test, conducted by an independent Home Critic.

Awarded homes are homes that have passed all 4 of the above stages. We are pleased to say that Boundary Cottage has delighted a Plum Guide guest, and passed the Plum Home Test.

The Plum Test 150 criteria

The 150 criteria of the Plum Test range include ‘measurable’ criteria like WiFi speed and decibel levels in the bedroom, as well as soft ‘feel’ criteria like the design aesthetic and the sociability of the space. These criteria represent Plum Guide’s “Science Behind The Perfect Stay”.

How did they develop it? By interviewing expert psychologists, designers, hoteliers, architects and of course, regular travellers. It all started with one simple question: what makes a perfect stay?
