Unique large country houses to rent

Aside from beautiful gardens, breathtaking views and the rich histories of our properties, our large country houses will make your celebration feel homely and comfortable. Experience your ‘home from home’ with log fires, Agas and cosy sitting rooms. A rental property doesn’t have to feel like a rental property.
Inside the magnificent party houses, wedding manors and holiday homes, you’ll find everything you need. There are grand dining rooms, four-poster beds, roll-top baths – you name it!
Hot tubs and other facilities
Whilst you’re searching, be sure to look out for fun facilities such as pools, TV rooms, games rooms, and hot tubs. In addition, you will find properties with indoor swimming pools and even saunas; perfect for relaxing after a hard day’s walk.
For those that play tennis, there are tennis courts at some of our big manor houses for rent. Furthermore, if you have a dog you can search for pet-friendly properties within our list of features. However, please make sure you also inform the owner beforehand for prior instructions or specific house rules.
If you’re getting married, then go ahead and look for our ready-to-go wedding houses. Amongst the facilities on offer you’ll find large country houses to rent that have wedding licences for marriages within the grounds. Make the experience memorable by getting married in a grand mansion within the setting of a historical country estate.
Book with confidence
All of our big houses for rent are fully cleaned between bookings, although please tidy up before you leave. Given coronavirus, the standard of cleaning has been heightened and often you’ll find the period of ‘rest’ between bookings has increased. Your health and safety are important; please ask if you have any concerns or individual requirements. Contactless check-in is easily facilitated too.
As you’re booking directly with the property owners, don’t hesitate to ask all the important questions – they’ll know the answers. Should accommodation restrictions occur due to government policy or quarantine guidelines, each house has a policy which may include refunds or date transfers. To be sure, please ensure you check the details with your property as the rules vary from house to house.
