Holiday Homes & Large Houses to Rent in UK

Ah, the British Isles! A culmination of rolling hills, crisp air and to some, a cluster of damp rocks poking up out of the Atlantic. Holidays in the UK are both wide-ranging and unique. And you’re in luck because we offer it all. From party houses, weekend breaks, dog-friendly cottages and luxurious manor houses – there’s something for every occasion.

We may not have the tallest peaks, pristine coral beaches or crystal blue sea, but our rugged coastlines, snow-dusted national parks and cosy pubs have a charm all of their own. 

Why choose a holiday home with Oliver’s Travels?

Every holiday home on our website has been hand-picked for its individuality. We don't do ordinary - we excel at the exceptional. Our goal is to help you plan the sort of cottage holiday that stays etched on your mind for years to come - and that starts by finding you the perfect large house for rent.

I was impressed by the speed and efficiency of service from enquiry through to booking. Our concierge, Flora, was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Oliver's Travels to friends and family.

Sam R, Manoir Clement (South of France)

I absolutely loved the stay there, Helen was lovely and a great host. I was knocked back a little by the sheer size of the place, the location right by the lake is fantastic and the outdoor hot tub is a nice touch.
