Holiday homes and rentals in the United Kingdom

Rentals in the city centre or head out to the countryside

You can choose rentals that are at the heart of the country like London or if you want to immerse yourself in nature and enjoy outdoor activities there are several destinations, such as York in England, Portree in Scotland, Gwynedd in Wales or County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. Here you have the possibility to relax in green and suggestive surroundings! You can find homes also close to the beach if you prefer chilling under the sun instead of the countryside, for instance, Shanklin or Newquay in England.

Homes for all types of travel experiences

Rentals in the UK are homey and luxurious. In fact, the main homes in the countryside are small old-fashioned cottages but with modern amenities like hot tubs, saunas or private pools. The holiday homes in the countryside are usually with wooden trims or wooden floors. Therefore, the wood or stone structure bestows to these homes a timeless and romantic feeling. Besides the cosy English cottages, the homes range from rustic to modern and classic design. Preferring more elegant and classical style furnished homes? The metropolis, like Manchester or Cardiff, offer you a vast choice of these kinds of holiday homes and sometimes along with small, lovely gardens. Discover the miscellaneous homes on your own, in a couple, with your family or with friends all year long.

The area and getting around

Discover the North

A country that has everything you might want to do, from wandering in nature, discovering majestic beaches, be amused by the beauty of national parks or modern and multicultural cities. Discover the north of the UK by hopping on one of the most beautiful railway routes in the world headed to Glasgow and discover the wild landscapes of Scotland, where we have the enchanted moors or lochs. When the train is getting close to the north-east keep an eye out for the Glenfinnan Viaduct where Harry Potter was filmed. Another suggestion is the home to an ancient volcano in Edinburgh, the Arthur seat. It's an easy hike but with a suggestive peak at 351 meters above the level of the sea. Everybody knows that you cannot visit this country without stopping for a tea and what about a singular place in a characteristic city, such as Bettys in York. It is a timeless institution!

Discover the South

If you want to move toward the south and sip tea in the capital you can always stop at the Ritz or at the Devon. Once you are in London don't forget to visit Camden town and shop for the most particular accessories or unusual piece of clothing at Camden Lock Market or at Camden Lock Village. You will feel like being in Wonderland! The beauty of this country are the variegated landscapes and cities suited for each different personality. The Oxford and Cambridge universities are other stops to not miss, always surrounded by green, wooded and lush landscapes and with the calm river running through the campuses. During sunny days, it is a good idea to stroll along the Brighton seaside at the south of London trying traditional fish and chips with your family and friends or you can decide to take a tour of one of the 15 incredible national parks with idyllic fields and impressive mountains, like in Norfolk Broads. In the south-east, for a more intriguing adventure visit Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain. Want to get lost in the middle of nature? You should definitely head to Cotswolds, where villages like Blockley or Castle Combe, seem like postcards and these honey-coloured towns have preserved their natural beauty in a way that seems time has stood still.

Travelers and activities

The UK for water sports lovers

Want to try something new and exciting? Surfing could be a great idea and there are, of course, beaches for experts and for beginners. Take your surfboard and head to Thurso in North East of Scotland or Porthleven in Cornwall to catch powerful waves and steep, impressive peaks. If you like surfing but it is a first-time experience then there are some moderate or small waves beaches with mellow waters that you might want to discover, such as Portrush East Strand in County Antrim or Saltburn in North Yorkshire. What about of a kitesurfing lesson in the best kitesurfing town in England? Visit the coastal town of Exmouth for a thrilling experience!

The UK for romantic getaways

Want to surprise your better half? Enjoy a lovely and idyllic trip at the Fairy Pools in the Isle of Skye, crystal clear pools connected by breathtaking waterfalls or the historical city of Bath in Somerset countryside is another option, its roman baths are also a famous spot to relax. Want to enjoy nature, but at the same time be impressed by an Italianate architecture? The answer is the lovely city of Portmeirion in (North Wales), a unique coastal town with pastel-coloured buildings. You can also decide to be amused by one the most suggestive sunsets in the UK walking hand by hand in the white sandy beach whilst overlooking the stunning coastline and the blue waters in the Jurassic Coast.
