About Us

Finest Retreats was founded on the belief in two principles. Firstly, for holidaymakers, it is incredibly difficult to trust that the place you have chosen to stay is as good as you hope for when you’re looking online. The second, for the owners of the finest holiday properties, it is becoming increasingly difficult to stand out from the crowd. Your choice is either to sign up to a lettings agent with a ‘stack-em-high’ attitude and restrictive clauses or to go it alone and wrestle with the time-consuming and technical burden.

Finest Retreats aims to solve both of those issues and bring a fresh perspective to holiday lettings. Our values embody the belief that holiday letting should be done better.

For holidaymakers, we bring you a handpicked selection of the finest UK holiday lets that we can personally vouch for. After a thorough vetting process, we only offer properties that are in the top 20% of the UK. If we don’t think they deserve to make the cut, we won’t include them in our selection. These are the quirkiest, most comfortable, luxurious cottages in the best locations. They could be idyllic country boltholes with open fires or large modern holiday homes next to the beach and ideal for family get-togethers. Each one must be special in its own right. Because in many of them we employ, train and manage our own housekeepers and maintenance staff, we are able to additionally pledge that your stay will be of the finest quality. We are always on hand.

To owners, we promise to showcase your property in the best light. We don’t offer restrictive contracts – it’s your special home after all, and we go above and beyond the existing crop of lettings agents and listings sites to offer you an unrivalled range of services which you can check out here.

All of this, for both our owners and for our holidaymakers, is done with a personal touch. Dedicated account managers and friendly, knowledgeable staff are always on hand. Underneath the personal approach to holiday letting and underpinning everything we do is market-leading technology that provides safe and secure payments and flexible, straightforward booking policies.
