LARGE COUNTRY HOUSES TO RENT
When you want to get away from it all, but still be surrounded by the people who mean the most to you, there is no better way than choosing one of our spectacular country houses to rent. Enjoy being the Lord or Lady of the Manor for a weekend or longer in a spacious and luxurious country house, surrounded by landscaped gardens and country views.
Our large country houses to rent are in some of the best locations in Britain, from the coast and moorlands of the West Country to the mountains and forests of Scotland. With rural locations, often on country estates in acres of natural countryside, they offer a country house experience that makes the most of the British landscape.
Our country houses to rent come with plenty of outdoor pursuits, from fishing and shooting to horse riding and hiking. With gardens for croquet or cricket, tennis courts and trampolines, you don’t even have to leave the grounds for your outdoor fun. Back inside, you might find swimming pools and saunas, games rooms and cinemas, wine fridges and cocktail bars.
Most of our country houses for rent combine historic charm with contemporary luxury, while some are modern throughout. Whichever is for you, they are worth travelling to, so don’t limit yourself to those on your doorstep. Wherever you choose to stay, you can be confident that the most amazing country house awaits.
We had the most wonderful time in the countryside. Quite literally a breath of fresh air for our family of (largely) city dwellers. We walked, we chatted, we cooked together. Our day trip plans were put aside, as there was just so much to occupy us at the house and in the grounds. What a weekend. Fabulous. Nothing more I can say than just... fabulous. Thank you Big House Experience!
