Country-wide, we have a fantastic selection of exclusive retreats to choose from, from charming chocolate-box thatched cottages to luxury modern barn conversions. Many are buildings of historical importance, including Grade II Listed Buildings which have been beautifully and imaginatively refurbished to meet modern standards.
The vast majority of the properties are close to the coast or nestled deep within the rolling British countryside, including areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) and National Parks. They include 32 former lighthouse keeper's cottages to rent in spectacular coastal locations. We also have unique country cottages with a sea view around the UK's coastline, alongside many dog-friendly holiday cottages, all of which are self-catering. If you're looking for something truly rural our farm cottages and luxury barns make a unique stay with modern furnishings.
