None of us will ever again be #blessed with the opportunity to be intensely-yet-sweetly judged by Mary Berry on The Great British Baking Show (especially since the baking legend is no longer part of the cast). But maybe this latest bit of news will help to ease the sadness that you will never be able to realize that pipe dream: Mary Berry's former vacation cottage in Salcombe, Devon (in southwest England) is now available for rental bookings.
The four-bed, two-bath home, known as Old Manse, is now listed on cottages.com, sleeps eight people, and rents for $1050.15 per week. According to the listing, it's located less than a mile from the coast, has a marble fireplace, boasts a gorgeous outdoor garden and patio for sitting and enjoying evening happy hours, and is "tastefully decorated," just like one of Mary Berry's famous desserts (might we add).

The dreamiest part about this property (aside from its picturesque view of the Salcombe Harbor from the top floor) is, of course, the vibrant, blue Aga range and oven. Fun fact: The kitchen hasn't been renovated since Mary Berry owned the property! So you can bet your bottom dollar that this kitchen has spawned at least one of her famous Pear Frangipane Tarts (and that it most certainly did not have a soggy bottom).
Aside from the gorgeous oven, this kitchen has a huge fridge (perfect for stocking with all the Mary Berry cookbook recipes you're planning to make) and a cozy dining area for entertaining guests. (Although if you're a true Mary Berry fan, you know that she's admitted that she prefers to eat in the kitchen rather than the dining room.)
The biggest perk of booking a stay here with family and friends? You'll have your very own cast of The Great British Baking Show ready to go. *Film crew not included.
