Luxury Holiday Homes in the UK
Famed for its village inns serving ale, Shakespeare, castles, rolling countryside and quaint seaside towns, Great Britain manages to offer diverse landscapes and cultures in a relatively small area. Its temperate weather is all part of the charm, allowing for comfortable sightseeing and of course giving the locals something to talk about!
Great Britain is about weather, it's about heritage, politics, past empire, modern culture, cricket, the 1966 World Cup, the Olympics, black cabs, red post boxes and double-decker buses, it's about Cotswold villages and British beaches, the Houses of Parliament, the gardens of Kent, Canary Wharf and the quaintest of Cornish fishing villages. It's about Kings and Queens and royal engagements, it's about wellies and mud, hot cups of tea and much, much more… and because it's so small, it's almost possible to take it all in during a single visit, although it may take a life time to work it all out!

Gently warmed by the Gulf Stream, Britain’s south-west corner has the mildest climate of the isles and arguably some of the finest coastline. Gardens, such as Buckland Abbey and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, are abundant with exotic plants and fragrant scents. Our luxury Devon holiday homes include cottages on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and our luxury Cornwall holiday homes on the North coast of Cornwall, now famous for its gastronomy with restaurants by Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver as well as for its cream teas, its beaches, unparalleled vistas, historic sites and surfing possibilities.
The Cotswolds is how visitors imagine traditional England to be: stone cottages line the streets of pretty villages, such as Bibury, Winchcombe, and Broadway, whilst the Regency towns of Bath & Cheltenham add grandeur to the region, with their impressive Georgian architecture. Nowadays the Cotswolds is a thriving arts centre with a multitude of festivals throughout the year.

Save 20% on bookings for High and Festive seasons made by 1st June (see rates for details). Painswick - the 'Queen of the Cotswolds' - is an exciting new addition to A&K Villas' Cotswold Collection. Not least because of its picturesque appearance and convenient location from which to explore the heart of the Cotswolds but most excitingly, if Painswick is the 'Queen of the Cotswolds' then A&K have secured her King - Painswick Court. Princely not in just its size and stature, but in the mere fact that King Charles I himself stayed at this very home and held court here during the Siege of Gloucester in 1643. Legend has it he still haunts the grounds of Painswick and it's been well documented that the people of Painswick have seen his ghost along with his loyal men dressed in their armour.
