Who are Plum's home critics? Well, they're architects, interior designers, travel experts – but they all share a razor-sharp eye for what makes a fabulous home.

They carry out every aspect of our  Plum test, but they're not just ticking boxes.


We trust them with sussing out the crucial things you can't do on paper. Does the space have personality? Does it bring together function and design? Does it feel like a proper home?


So whichever Plum home you book, you know it's got our experts' stamp of approval.

Check out what they loved in our homes below.
