“LTR has an outrageously tempting portfolio of top-end, characterful luxury vacation properties, but their real USP is that they know – and love – them all”. Jeremy Lazell, freelance travel writer.


The importance of choosing the right luxury accommodation for you, your family and friends is at the heart of the LTR experience. We use our unrivaled and first hand local knowledge guide us to recommend the very best property for your stay. We make sure that we get to know you, our client, really well so that we can find you the best private home for your needs and a wonderful private bespoke travel experience. There is an abundance of luxury accommodation available, however, finding the right place that ticks all the boxes can be hard and that is where LTR is able to make the difference between an ordinary vacation and an extraordinary vacation. 

We also love working with Travel Agents and take great pride in creating bespoke experiences for their clients.  Indeed, some Travel Agents have become friends over the years as they continue to send us their clients.  Read some stories from a few of our loyal Travel Agent friends here.

Enjoy unparalleled access to exclusive use luxury accommodation in fully staffed private castles & stately homes, mansions & country houses, chateaux & villas and boutique hotels; yours exclusively for hire or rental.

Each of the private properties is someone’s home, luxuriously appointed, offering supreme comfort and convenience, along with easy access to many activities and the major travel hubs. We ensure that all of the luxury accommodation that we offer is visited personally by one of our team to make sure that our standards are kept and to make sure that we match the right home with our guests.

From the romance of an idyllic Scottish castle or island to the magnificent splendor of an English stately home, luxury and character is apparent in abundance, embodying the very special qualities of your chosen destination. Many of these private homes have fascinating histories such as the beautiful historic family home in Northamptonshire where the notorious Gunpowder Plot was planned and fabulous stately homes that have been lived in or stayed in by royalty. We can advise you, down to the very last detail, to ensure that you make the best choice of where to stay.

Whether you’re looking for a quintessentially English country house, a romantic castle in Ireland or a Scottish Georgian mansion, please get in touch with us and we will help you find the best place to stay and luxury travel experience.


“We will never be able to thank Jonathan and Kirsty enough for a spectacular trip and events.  Everything was truly magnificent, and the honoree felt love, beauty and fun everywhere.  I know none of us realized what an undertaking the events would turn out to be, but at least afterwards we can confirm they were huge successes. You will of course be top of our list to recommend for trip, event, experiences etc. in Scotland.”

Andrew, you are a pleasure to work with. You are knowledgeable, have a great sense of humor, and are quick to respond to any and all requests. My clients were delighted with the rental property we booked through you, and I have recommended you and your company to my fellow agents who are looking for wonderful service and high quality products.

It was our great pleasure to work with Andrew and his team. We had a large family group of 32 that required significant coordination, varied activities and detail. Andrew provided seamless management and exceptional recommendations for excursions, activities and entertainment. Our family said it was their best vacation ever! Thank you for your extraordinary service and trip management!

I highly recommend Loyd & Townsend Rose for planning and executing your next vacation.  Andrew Loyd has arranged for some pretty amazing trips for our group for the past 3 summers in Europe.  They network with the best to create some rather magical memories! Thank you Andrew.

Andrew Loyd was a pleasure to work with in putting together our 2 lovely weeks at Sibton Manor in Suffolk in September of ’18.  He assisted in locating a large Manor with special requirements and negotiating dates and price with Wilderness Reserve, the owner. Leading up to and during our visit, he interceded with many of the details involved in successfully getting 24 persons each week for two weeks happily situated. He even helped me order and have delivered a great deal of wine and spirits when I was having some difficulties locating and paying for it while out of the country.  For all this and much more I, as organizer, remain extremely grateful.

My wife and I have used Jonathan at Loyd & Townsend-Rose for several years now on many occasions, without a hitch, without really even a minor flaw. His ability to find ideal homes for us, whether with family or with friends, or both, in England, Spain, and Italy has been extraordinary. There seems to be an innate ability to match locale, dwelling and service with our needs, giving us everything we desire in superlative terms. How lucky we have been, and how grateful we are!

“Dear Andrew, We all wanted to say a very big thank you not only for organising our wonderful trip to Lethendy but also for the surprise piper who arrived last night to pipe us into dinner! Mum told me that you had organised it for us – that was so kind of you. Lethendy was all that you had described and more! We were greeted and treated with such kindness and care. The children had a whale of a time and loved both Vicky and David. We all felt very much at home and really didn’t want it all to end … “

“Well, you did it. It was a fabulous trip. The properties, the pace, the sights, the countryside, the people, food and trekking. Thank you so much. We feel as though you gave us special attention and really appreciate it. Your insights and guidance were highly focussed and just perfect. I, too, will miss our communications and you making us feel so unique.”

“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.”
