Luxury holiday cottages

If you're planning a family occasion or a getaway with friends, escape to somewhere unique and rich in history. We have plenty of large, luxury holiday cottages where you can indulge in the elegance and fine décor surrounding you.

Stay in a castle, an 18th-century Georgian rectory or a manor house dating back to 1185. Discover country mansions and luxury coastal cottages, all brought back to life for you to enjoy on an extraordinary getaway. Or perhaps you want to spend your holiday in a 1930s Art-Deco style villa on the coast or a turreted tower overlooking sparkling lakes.

Every time you holiday with us, 100% of the money we make goes back into preserving the place you're staying in and other special places too.
