This is where it all started

The view which inspired Oak House, 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 really how the business started.

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 it sitting in our meadow, eating blackberries and taking in the view down to the old oak tree.

Now we have more than 250 wonderful holiday houses, including eight of our own.

We love being in the business of helping people enjoy their holidays and special occasions. We delight in helping you choose the place that’s right for you. Whether it’s a big occasion or a simple family get-together, we’ll do everything we can to ensure that your experience is just about perfect.
