  • “One of the best holiday rental companies in the UK…a pared-back listing of holiday homes with sweet interiors”

  • “A tightly curated selection of beautiful, affordable self-catering rentals…Kip is a delight to use”

What our members say

  • "I love Kip Hideaways and am so thankful a curation like it exists. Thank you so much for being my absolute favourite place to make my dreamy holiday visions come to life."

  • "We’re working our way through your dog friendly collection (7 down & 56 to go!) and have not been disappointed once. Big fans of all things Kip!"

    Karen, July 2021
  • "We have spent many an hour trawling through websites trying to find a nice cottage or cabin or something a bit different to have a weekend away and usually end up frustrated, bored or with bleary eyes and it takes us days if not weeks of searching to find something that is just 'us'. The properties on your site are EXACTLY us and they're all in one place! As busy working parents, this is right up our street, so thank you very very very much!"

FAQs

All bookings are direct with the owners so you’d need to ask them about their individual policies for deposits / flexible bookings and potential cancellation.

Because cleaning costs are so high. If these small businesses did a daily turnaround they wouldn’t make any profit. Hotels have multiple rooms so their margins are bigger. Check out the minimum stay for each hideaway in their Specifics section.

Never. We are super picky about how we choose, only selecting around 10% of places we look at.

Around 80% of our properties offer Kip guests an exclusive welcome gift. This can be anything from a bottle of fizz to a welcome hamper of local goodies. Tell the owner that you found their property on Kip when you enquire / book to ensure you get your surprise when you stay.

No — we deliberately offer a ‘£3.99 a month membership’ so you can try Kip out and see if it’s right for you.

Memberships are rolling subscriptions. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time by logging into your account area, clicking ‘subscriptions’ in the top navigation and then choosing either ‘pause’, ‘update’, ‘change plan’ or ‘cancel’ from the options. We’re constantly adding new properties so we’d recommend you pause rather than cancel.

We always advise taking out travel insurance — for any stay, no matter how short — so that you can claim back your money in the event of cancellation for events beyond anyone’s control (be that Covid, Force Majeure etc). We appreciate it’s a faff but it protects everyone involved.

Meet the founders.

We dreamed up Kip to make holiday-planning simple. Finding amazing and affordable rentals is ridiculously time consuming, even stressful! How do you cut through the dross on enormous sites? Are the reviews reliable? And are you getting the best price? Something that should be fun can become a real headache.

We’d worked in the boutique travel industry for years and realised there was a gap in the market for our expertise: a website that featured the absolute best small UK rentals.

We look at thousands of properties, and only choose the ones we consider outstanding. Our reviews are unique, honest and impartial – the things we’d tell our friends. We even highlight the potential drawbacks of each place to help you choose.

What makes a Kip Hideaway?

We look for places that really wow us. Our properties are all completely unique, and full of beautiful style. Some are boutique-y, some are rustic luxe; others are trend-led, or completely pared back and simple. Nothing generic or bland.

They’re also full of really thoughtful, personal detail. Perhaps a hand-drawn map of the owner’s favourite local walks; or a homemade cake on arrival and bath salts by a local company. Our owners genuinely care that their guests have an amazing stay.

Small places with soul.
