“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain’s quote is as relevant today as it has always been and reflects the sense of freedom and adventure we like our guests to experience on one of our escapes.

We pride ourselves on being a unique British travel company offering extraordinary holidays at a selection of stunning coastal and countryside locations across the UK. We all work and live by the principles that underpin our travel philosophy,  forever on a quest to help our guests re-connect and rejuvenate in the comfort of luxury accommdation, set to a backdrop of natural beauty.

We are your guides to life’s most amazing experiences and guardians of quality time understanding how important your leisure time is to collect moments to form memories that will last a lifetime!

We also truly believe in sustainability and community. The very landscapes within which we showcase our luxury homes, are undeniably the main attractions. We have a real affinity with these rural communities; after all, this is where its founder, Matthew Spence, came from having developed the first location in the Yorkshire Dales on his family farm back in 2006.

Together, your journey starts here!
