Holiday letting agents Crabtree & Crabtree

Crabtree & Crabtree is the undisputed leader in exclusive holiday home rentals in the North of England and South of Scotland, opening the doors to some of the most extraordinary houses in Great Britain

As the pioneer of luxury self-catered accommodation in these magical yet relatively little-known regions, we offer our guests sole access to the most exceptional private homes in Northumberland, Yorkshire and the South of Scotland – as well as a raft of optional luxurious extras from professional catering to private yoga instruction which sees them returning time after time.  

From wisteria-bestrewn cottages, grand manor houses and stylishly converted cowsheds, each Crabtree & Crabtree property stands out from the crowd – and has been carefully handpicked – for its stunning location, unusual architecture, remarkable history or beautiful interiors.

The owners of our homes are just as important to us as our guests are, which is why we create a bespoke programme to suit your needs. Whether you’re at the concept stage of your property project, would like to turn your family home a luxurious rental or are exploring new ways of marketing an existing holiday cottage, our expert local team will help you to maximise your property’s potential.

Whether you’re at the start of your property journey, or would just like to keep things fresh, we can help with everything from interior design and styling advice to actively marketing your home and, of course, helping with all the nitty gritty details.

We recognise that every owner has their own objectives when opening up their homes to guests, so we offer a flexible and tailor-made package to suit you, meaning you can choose to rent out your property with us all year around, open it up for select periods only and much more.

We’ve also introduced our managed services offering – new for 2023 – so that should you wish, you can leave the smooth running of your holiday home with us. From guest liaison and housekeeping arrangements to property safety monitoring and emergency repairs – and everything in between – we can take on the hard work to ensure your home looks, feels and performs its best.

In short, we work with you to make the most of your holiday home and deliver the heartfelt, intuitive hospitality that has come to define Crabtree & Crabtree.

Whether your property is a coastal cottage, a dog friendly hilltop retreat or a secluded romantic bolthole. If you think it has what it takes to be a Crabtree & Crabtree property, then we’d love to hear from you.
