Holiday Homes to Rent

Make your next holiday gathering, reunion, or special event that little bit more memorable by choosing accommodation that not only helps you feel at home but lets everyone in your group spend their precious time away in indulgent luxury. Crabtree & Crabtree have holiday homes to rent in locations across the North of England and South of Scotland, selected specially for the boutique experience they provide, and for their proximity to some of the UK’s most exciting landmarks, scenic landscapes and tourist attractions. 

Make your stay special

The joy of renting a holiday home as opposed to a hotel or a B&B is that, no matter the size of your group, you’ll have complete freedom for the duration of your stay. You’ll be able to set your own schedule of events, arrange your own meals or catering, and relax in an environment filled with the comforts of home. You might be organising a group family holiday filled with outdoor activities, an anniversary, or an opulent dinner party complete with entertainment: whatever shape your event takes, you’ll be able to find a Crabtree & Crabtree property that suits your needs. 

Explore, discover, relax

If you’re planning activities during your stay, your holiday home will put you on the doorstep of the best destinations in the region. Explore the great outdoors in the Yorkshire Dales, hike the Northumberland Coast Path, or visit one of the numerous medieval castles and ruins of the northeast, including Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh Castle and Hadrian’s Wall. Further north, the Scottish Borders and East Lothian are a treasure trove of idyllic villages and communities and host some of Scotland’s best beach destinations. 

Wherever you stay, you and your party will be free to create your own adventures in captivating settings: take a mountain bike tour, try windsurfing, visit a seaside village, or simply sit back and relax in the grounds of your holiday property. 

Choose your ideal holiday home

Our holiday homes to rent are ideal for groups seeking a private sanctuary or a base from which to head out and explore, and include everything from lodges and townhouses, to manors, castles and stately homes. With fully-fitted kitchens, lavishly furnished lounges, and cosy bedrooms for every guest, each holiday home property has been finished to an exacting standard of luxury to ensure every moment of the stay is special.
