Five of the best boutique rental providers in the UK

As the UK hopes to enter step 3 on the roadmap out of lockdown in the coming days,  continued uncertainty around international travel remains. In recent days the Government has confirmed a traffic light protocol will be adopted as part of a cautious return to international travel, which at the time of writing only a dozen countries and territories have been added to the ‘green list’ so far. 

From May 17th hotels, hostels and B&B’s can re-open, and with the summer months fast approaching and consumers desperate to book a summer vacation, we thought we would shine a light on five of our favourite boutique rentals providers in the UK that don’t require a ‘green light’ to attend.  

Unique Homestays

Since 2001, Unique Homestays have led the way for private home accommodation and are pioneers in the luxury travel market. 

The boutique business only chooses homes to rent that genuinely inspire, so if you decide to book through Unique Homestays, you can expect the property to combine breath-taking settings and exceptional living.   

As escape specialists, the homes that Unique Homestays hand-pick cannot be found elsewhere. From intimate wedding venues to couples retreat away with the family, Unique Homestays have a widespread collection of homes all across the UK for you to choose from. 

Boutique Retreats

Doing things a little differently is Boutique Retreats who aim to bridge the gap between boutique hotels and traditional holiday cottages. Providing a personal service not simply self-catering. 

With over 30 years of experience in the holiday letting business, Boutique Retreats are always on hand to offer up advice on the best places to stay depending on your needs. 

From hideaways in Padstow and Polzeath to retreats in the Hampshire countryside, Boutique Retreats have a variety of options readily available to make this summer one you won’t forget.
