Long let holiday properties

Whether house-hunting, temporarily relocating for business or looking for a change of scenery in a peaceful country retreat, make yourself at home with an extended stay in a luxury private home rental.

A holiday needn't just be for Christmas – or Easter, or summer for that matter. Some guests prefer to settle in for the long haul, selecting one of our luxury homes sourced from locations far and wide across the UK and Ireland. We've searched the most far-flung 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 for your extended stay. These homes come with a word of warning however, you may never want to leave.

Our large family and dog-friendly properties have room for everyone, some with annexe accommodation in case the grandparents are invited too. In sought-after coast and country locations, we've tracked down luxury retreats near some of Britain's best private schools for parents considering relocating, or for visiting academics seeking respite on short-term contracts. For couples and solo guests, there are hand-picked boltholes awaiting your company. Speak to our Homestay Specialists who can tailor-make your long-let break.
