Long let holiday properties

House-hunting between jobs, looking for peace to finish that novel? Take an extended stay in a self-catering rental, where our top priority is your comfort.

A holiday needn't just be for Christmas – or Easter, or summer. Some guests prefer to settle in for the long haul, carefully selecting one of our luxury homes, sourced from locations far and wide across the UK and Ireland. We've sifted through the far corners to bring you homes that are equipped with everything you could possibly need; and if they just happen to have a hot tub, swimming pool or tennis court, then so much the better! Moving house and need a comfortable interim stay with all the essential trappings that your own home has?

Our large family-centric properties have enough rooms for everyone, sometimes a spare in case the grandparents decide to pop by. In tiny towns and by the sea, we've tracked down boho retreats for visiting academics seeking respite on short-term contracts; some of our luxury finds are ideal for those who enjoy nothing more than spending long days hiking the English countryside, before returning for some proper home cooking in a gloriously kitted-out kitchen. These homes come with a word of warning however, you may never want to leave.
