Holiday rentals and lettings 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 lettings also close to the beach if you prefer chilling under the sun instead of the countryside, for instance, Shanklin or Newquay in England.

Lettings for all types of travel experiences

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

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.

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.
