Country houses and rural retreats to rent in the UK

Honey-coloured houses with thatched roofs and flagstone floors, grand Edwardian residences with acres of parkland, and lofty barn conversions with contemporary open-plan living… these are just a snapshot of our diverse and appealing portfolio of large country houses to rent in the UK.

It’s hard to beat that feeling of liberation as you break away from the crowd and travel towards your relaxing retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life with only the hubbub of those around you, and the activities you choose to engage in.

Tranquillity and peace are certainly easy to come by in our large UK country houses, but so too are engaging and lively enterprises, such as tennis, fishing, swimming, dancing… and of course, socialising, perfect for group holidays. For an extra special treat, why not choose one of our large country houses to rent with a swimming pool? Other indulgent features you might also find in your large country house include bubbling hot tubs, well-equipped games rooms, and home cinemas.

Perhaps you might choose one of our large country houses to rent in Scotland, enveloped by snow-capped mountains, glistening lochs and wildly beautiful glens. Or maybe you’d prefer one of our large country houses to rent in the Lake District with enchanting lakes, woodlands and rolling hills on the doorstep. Whatever your inclination, we’ll find you a big country house in the UK to fulfil your wishlist.

Rent a large country house for the weekend

Our large country houses to rent for weekends are perfect for whisking your loved ones away for a rejuvenating short escape. These country houses for weekend hire also make idyllic venues for special celebrations, such as milestone birthdays, engagement parties and anniversaries – guests are sure to be wowed by the beautiful surroundings and you certainly won’t be short of backdrops for photos.

We’ve popped some of our favourite rural retreats in the UK in our blog if you fancy some more inspiration. Or for even more choice, explore all of our accommodation for large groups across the UK.
