  • “I would like to add my sincere thanks to all for the amazing weekend. Anna has filled me in on how much work was involved by all in planning our stay and this is very much appreciated. This was a very special weekend which I shall remember for many years to come.” A.M. , London, UK

Since 1999 LTR has established itself as a first class organiser of bespoke, luxury travel recognised the world over.

Not many companies can claim to be as exclusive as LTR when it comes to tailor made luxury travel.  Our relationships and expertise enable us to open doors to experiences that are normally off limits.  Unparalleled access and knowledge such as this does not come easily and is the result of years spent travelling and cultivating invaluable contacts.  We provide truly once-in-a-lifetime luxury travel experiences that you won’t find elsewhere.  We take the stress out of organising bespoke holiday arrangements, so all you have to do is arrive.

LTR is a luxury travel company that specialises in luxury family holidays, 40th, 50th and 60th birthday parties, specialist tailor made luxury tours for two or more people, house parties, special events and various corporate events.  We only work with the very best suppliers who we have enjoyed good relationships with over the years and whom we know provide the level of professionalism and care that our clients expect.  We relish the challenge of putting together a holiday or event that is going to create lasting memories for our clients.  We get to know our clients well and enjoy the fact that many of them return to us time and time again for different occasions and holidays.  This is something we value very highly.


LTR was founded in April 1999 by Jonathan Townsend-Rose and Andrew Loyd.  The brainchild of Jonathan for whom the concept of making better commercial use of some of the larger houses & castles in Scotland, in his role as advisor to the owners, was becoming a priority. 

Andrew had just returned to Scotland from the US where he had managed the estates of various prominent US families and it was immediately clear that there was not only a shared passion for these beautiful properties but also a very complementary mix of skill sets. LTR’s portfolio has evolved over the last 17 years from a handful of mainly ancestral homes in Scotland to a wide mix of properties throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe, embracing many different architectural styles, with the one shared feature that they all now enjoy a high level of comfort. 

Whether a 6 bedroom Scottish keep or a 15 bedroom English ancestral pile, LTR only works with the best homes available and our clients all get the full ‘concierge service’ that we have provided since day one.  We work with historical houses that have been refurbished to an extremely high standard in a very traditional manner as well as classical houses that have been renovated with a contemporary finish but completed to an equally high standard with all the comforts of the modern day.

In the summer of 2016, Jonathan and Andrew founded LTR Property Consultancy Services.  This is a separate company dedicated to providing specialist advice to owners of large stately homes and castles on how best to prepare them for LTR clients to be able to enjoy the private house experience.
