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.
