Our locations

Our locations

Our houses are situated in the most wonderful locations covering the length and breadth of the land. Many of them are tucked out of the way opening up country walks and beautiful landscapes you may otherwise miss. They are great bases for exploring parts of the country you are not familiar with, and for getting to know more about your own locality if you are staying at a house close by. Some of our houses are in miles off the beaten track, some of them are in the heart of the town; all of them are in great locations.

The Cotswolds

line

The villages of the Cotswold feel as though they haven’t changed for centuries. And yet they contain some of the best restaurants in the land. Nothing beats a long Sunday lunch in a friendly village with the fire roaring and the locals chattering.

Cornwall

line

Cornwall has a unique quality. As you cross the River Tamar you enter a world unlike anywhere else in these islands. Around the coasts the Atlantic Ocean rolls in, shaping the most dramatic coastal scenery and laying down beautiful sandy beaches.

Devon

line

Mention Devon to anyone and they will most likely conjure up images of lazy afternoons scoffing a traditional cream tea, sailing down the River Dart and spotting kingfishers dashing along the shoreline, or trekking over the stunning and mystical Dartmoor.

Somerset

line

Somerset is a rural county of natural beauty: rolling hills, expansive moors, unique levels; a county of history, mythology and magic. Everywhere has a tale to tell and you’re bound to find someone who’s more than happy to tell it. Especially over a glass or two of Somerset Cider.

Dorset

line

With its varied landscape of elevated chalk downs, steep limestone ridges and low-lying clay valleys, Dorset is a stunning county. No wonder over half of it is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Three-quarters of its coastline is part of the Jurassic Coast Natural World Heritage Site due to its geological and paleontological significance.

Derbyshire

line

Derbyshire is a hugely diverse county with towns and cities lying in beautiful countryside; a county with an industrial heart and breathtaking scenery. The Peak National Park lies at the southern end of the Pennines, covering over 500 square miles, three quarters of which lie within Derbyshire itself.

Worcestershire

line

Worcestershire is an unexpected treat. From the coniferous and deciduous woodlands in the north of the county, to the beautiful Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on to the undulating hills and farmland of the Severn valley, down to the river itself, the longest in the UK, or on to the Vale of Evesham and on down to the Cotswolds to the south, there is a treat around every turn.

The Lake District

line

Who doesn’t love the Lake District? With its ever-changing moods, its stunning scenery, its plethora of watersports, walks, treks and visitor attractions, any stay in the Lake District will be a stay to remember. It is a walkers’ paradise but you do not have to be a hiker to enjoy the scenery, to take in the views, to while away an afternoon in one of the many tea shops offering splendid afternoon teas.

Yorkshire

line

What can we say about Yorkshire that hasn’t already been said? Yorkshire boasts some of the greenest unspoilt countryside in the country with the splendour of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors stretching out to the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby on the North Sea shoreline.

East Lothian, Scotland

line

This area has so much to offer: over 40 miles of coastline, great beaches, gentle countryside, and the world’s finest links golf courses. A veritable haven of tranquility, it is literally minutes away from the heartbeat of Scotland and one of our favourite cities: Edinburgh.

Loch Ness, Scotland

line

The mysteries and legends around Nessie and the loch are famous around the world. But, to be honest, the reality is even better. The loch is twenty-three picturesque miles long, and its amazing depth means there is more water in this freshwater loch than in all the lakes in England and Wales combined!

Suffolk

line

With fifty miles of coastline and the beauty and tranquillity of the Constable countryside, Suffolk truly is a place to relish. Famous not only for its artists but also its horseracing and stately homes and gardens, Suffolk boasts tremendous restaurants serving excellent local foods.
