kate & tom's is different

We know holiday houses - we run nine large houses ourselves. Starting with these we've built a select portfolio through word-of-mouth and recommendation.

“I decided to rent my house out when I had to move away for work. k&t were recommended as an option by a friend so I called them. It was a big step for me and they made it so easy. From the first meeting, where I immediately liked their practical advice and sensible and direct approach, I was guided through the whole process, from starting to set up the house to pricing to receiving bookings and operating the house. I’m getting a fantastic amount of bookings and a great return and I feel like the house is safe in their hands. The whole team are honest, approachable, friendly and totally professional. It’s no exaggeration to say that kate & tom’s have changed my life.”
– Adam, Elephant & Castle

“I registered with kate & tom’s in 2016 and have never looked back. I wanted the reassurance of working with a company rather than marketing my property myself, but of course I was originally quite reticent as my house is so much more than a business to me. It was so important to find a company who understood that. However, from the outset, I’ve been so impressed and delighted with all the team, who are warm and approachable as well as professional. The bookings have been amazing and I’m always consulted before confirmation, and involved in pricing when needed. I would recommend kate & tom’s to anyone looking for great service and guests but also the feeling of security and support they so brilliantly provide.”
– Deborah, The Hollies


This is where it all started

The view which inspired Oak House in the Cotswolds, our first Big Cottage

kate & tom’s is a family business, in every sense. We’re a large family who enjoy each other’s company, and that’s how the business started – we wanted somewhere special to be together.

Our first Big Cottage was Oak House. Born of two converted barns, it’s a relaxed, luxurious holiday home full of oak beams and stunning views.

We planned Oak House sitting in our meadow eating blackberries, taking in the view. We loved it. Guests loved it. The house and the whole experience.

Now we have more than 300 wonderful properties, including nine of our own, and are on the look out for more.
