Summer Showcase

At kate & tom’s we can cater for any season, but Summer is where blue skies and warm days make exploring the countryside that much better!

Of course, all of our houses are perfect for the summer months, but here are a few choices hand-picked by our team.

Mike – Penpol & Polpier | Mevagissey
“Having just got back from a holiday in Cornwall, I can personally vouch for how stunning the county is any time of year. Mevagissey is such a magnificent slice of Cornish coast, and at either Penpol or Polpier you can wake up every day to the most spectacular view (I recommend following them on Instagram!)”


Charlotte – Wellacres House | Cotswolds
“It feels like we’ve had a taste of the summer this weekend with luscious blue skies. Add to this the rolling Cotswolds countryside for the best holiday ever. Wellacres has a pool, hot-tub and is really close to Stow-on-the-Wold and picturesque Bourton-on-Water.”


Brett – Bristowe Hill | Lake District
“The Lakes are my favourite summer destination in the UK. Everywhere sight and every view could be straight out of a magazine – it’s really that amazing. I could recommend any of our Lake District houses, but Bristowe Hill is one of my favourites, and has so much character. Take a look for yourself in our virtual reality walkround.”


Leigh – Taikoo | Devon
“I don’t really have just one favourite as we have so many great properties, but Taikoo is so secluded you can forget about the rest of the world. With an indoor pool and the stunning national park surroundings, it’s a great choice for a friends or family get together.”


Jessica – The Moult | Salcombe
“Salcombe has the reputation for being an iconic British seaside, and I wholeheartedly agree. Even more stunning than Salcombe itself is The Moult. ‘It doesn’t get much better than this fantastic coastal property’ said The Sunday Times in it’s piece about the 50 best cottages in Britain.”


Lucy – The Hyde | Herefordshire
“If you’re looking for a unique summer holiday then The Hyde will give you exactly that. Aside from lashings of medieval charm; The Hyde also has its own mini railway, maze and tennis courts ensuring that this summer will be one to remember!”


Claudie – Mangerton House | Dorset
“I have so many favourites from our selection, so it’s tough to pick just one. Personally I love the Dorset countryside, plus it’s not far from Lulworth Cove and Lyme Regis. Although with an indoor and an outdoor pool at Mangerton House, I’d struggle to leave!”


Fiona – Halula Beach House | Newquay
“Spend the summer surfing in Newquay, then head back to the pool and bar at Halula Beach House? Yes please! This is the perfect location for party and relaxation in equal measures.”
