Luxury houses to rent - Stately home, Yorkshire, England

Host a grand house party – 6 of the best luxury houses to rent

2 Feb 2015 by fullscreen

The Grand House Party is often considered something of a bygone era.  Not many of us have the space to entertain the number of guests we would like, in the style we would like, in our own homes.  However, with the wonderful, fully staffed and catered luxury houses to rent from LTR, we are able to create these wonderful experiences for our loyal clients.  LTR works with the grandest and most beautifully restored private stately homes, castles, villas and chateaux and they provide a service and welcome that is second to none.

Entertaining in a private home with exclusive use is very different to entertaining in a hotel. Everything can be bespoke and tailor made to fit your requirements.  LTR will organize every aspect from the start to the finish.  From Michelin Star Chefs to magicians, black jack and dancing in the evening, falconry displays, cycling, nature walks, city tours and art gallery visits during the day, all manner of luxury experiences.  We have an extensive knowledge of Scotland, Ireland, England and Europe to ensure that you and your guests leave having created memories that will stay with you for ever. Here you can see 6 of the best luxury houses to rent for a grand house party!

  • “It was a spectacular weekend. We and our guests had a terrific time. The castle was exceptionally comfortable and we all felt completely at home thanks to the understated but highly efficient service and support they provided. Food was also amazing… a truly memorable party. We are very happy.” T. W., USA
