Renting a lifestyle, always discreet and very selective…

`It’s a great joy to plan a holiday with you, because you and your team are the epitome of efficiency.  It makes such a difference, so all thanks due to you all!’

We have received such wonderful compliments this year that encapsulate to perfection the reason why we love our portfolio of special and very personal private properties in our portfolio.

As we go to press, the ‘B’ word continues to dominate and remains unresolved. We are often asked has the uncertainty had an effect on our business and of course it has unsettled many; however, will we all still want to holiday abroad? The answer is a resounding YES!

There are likely to be changes to some entry requirements such as an international driving license, travel insurance and dog passports. A benefit of the delays is that Government Departments and relevant Companies that advise are ready for any eventuality. My International driving license made us rather nostalgic for the ease of purchase from the Post Office and its simplicity – a piece of cardboard with no hidden security microchips.

In a world of on-line booking and uncertainty, our raison d’être is to provide you with a personal service. We have visited all our properties, taken copious notes and measurements, and we delight in passing this information to you in the form you prefer, whether it is by telephone, email, letter or all three….

Our small team work together with enthusiasm and our aim is to understand your requirements and help you discover a property where you will be comfortable and enjoy special time together. After the passage of 34 years we have learnt that our personal knowledge of these gorgeous houses is advice you appreciate.

Representing these lovely properties is a compliment. Our admiration is to our Owners who ensure their properties are prepared to such a fantastic standard for your arrival. This is also due to their loyal and hardworking staff who do help to make this a holiday for you and your guests.

We have always respected the GDPR set of rules to ensure your privacy.   At any time it is your complete right to withdraw from one or any form of contact and we are happy to be contacted via email (, post (South Hill, Whixley, York, UK, YO26 8AT) or via our website ( to remove you from our contact list.

We look forward to helping you with your holiday plans.
