Your Guide to UK Luxury Villas

The rolling hills of the English countryside. The coastal charm of Cornwall. The electrifying energy of London. The UK is home to a variety of experiences and landscapes, and UK luxury villas let you experience them in style and comfort.

UK luxury villas date back to the 18th century, when aristocrats sought refuge from the bustling cities. The Georgian era brought architectural refinement, with symmetrical designs and intricate detailing.

By the 19th century, the Romantic revival saw Gothic styles come back into vogue for UK luxury villas. This gave way to Edwardian splendour and, finally, to the art deco and modernism of the 20th century.

Today, UK luxury villas represent a melding of these various influences with modern amenities to create chic, sophisticated experiences.

Renting a luxury villa in the UK is easy with Rental Escapes. First, find your travel dates and party size. From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will present you with the best available UK luxury villas. After, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, excursions, tours, reservations, chef service, and more.
