What our members say

  • "A beautifully curated collection on an easy to use site. I’d highly recommend membership! The treehouse we stayed in was SUBLIME!"

    Helen, March 2023
  • "I recently booked a property via Kip - I'm a member and I love that this allows me to see the owner's website and book direct through them (ie it feels really fair and that everyone's a winner). Their listings are gorgeous and - importantly - consistent in how they're laid out which means they're easy to weigh up whenever I've been torn between options. The only suggestion I'd make would be to say that I'd love to see further consumer reviews on the site. Whenever I've had interaction with Kip, their customer service has been top-notch."

    Eve, March 2023
  • "Everything about Kip is great ,the places they find that make it really special & the small details stand out that nothing is forgotten & you’ll have a wonderful time"

    Lisa, March 2023
  • "Like a Secret Club for Amazing Holiday Rentals! A small joining fee gives you access to a superb collection of stunning holiday homes with direct communication to the owners. Personalised service, beautiful website, great photos, with excellent comments 'We Love' and 'You May Not Love'. I'm addicted every time an email arrives from Kip Hideaways."

    Chantal, March 2023
  • "A really lovely selection of unique stays that are all really beautifully designed and thought through. Kip is my 'go to' when it comes to staycations that are a little unusual. The filters are really useful when it comes to searching for exactly what you want. We've done 2 stays through Kip now for our anniversary and has now become an annual tradition! We're excited for where we'll stay next."

    Charlotte, March 2023
  • "Without the doubt… BEST place to find unique, adorable places to unwind and make memories with your loved ones, or just by yourself!"

    Rasa, March 2023
  • "An absolutely wonderful place to find unique hideaways. As a dog-owner and someone who considers themselves a homebody even when not at home, I love that you can use the filters + the detailed info on the site to understand exactly what you need to bring to make the most of your break. We've now found two lovely places through Kip and I'm sure we'll continue to discover more."

    Hannah, March 2023
  • "Cracking company, fabulous properties backed up by "proper" service. Forget abroad and all the airport aggro. Invest in a lovely holiday in blighty and what better way to do it than in a Kip Hideaway, you can even take your dog. But don't tell too many people, keep this one special."

    Clarence, March 2023
  • "Kip offers such a unique selection of accommodation with character, but also with value. They also run regular discounts and special offers and at £19 a year its a no-brainer to become a member. If you're looking for something just that little bit more special for your getaways, Kip is the place."

    Natalie, March 2023
  • "A great selection of accomodation which was very accuately described and in excellent locations to nature. I like that you can book direct and lower costs this way too. Great customer service and an easy booking process, highly recommend"

    Nadia, February 2023
  • "I haven't been able to book with Kip yet, but as someone who always tries to find the direct contact for holiday lets it is nice knowing there is a site that has done the work for me. This saves both the fees of large booking platforms and the time of having to figure out if every listed property has a way to individually book through the owner. I am looking forward to booking with Kip soon!"

    Jessi, February 2023
  • "This website helps save so much time trawling through the internet for great places to stay. Every place we have found/booked via Kip has been amazing - they are beautiful properties with thoughtful details which make a trip easy and enjoyable."

    Alice, February 2023
  • "This company has a great selection of houses to rent , not seen in any other website for the UK. Great design and easy comunication with lodgers. The only thing is that I found it difficult to see the prices on the website, even as a member sometimes."

    Caroline, February 2023
  • "I’ve been a subscriber to KIP since start up and LOVE the collection . They are exactly what I look for in a weekend break and save hours of trawling through the many other sites with huge numbers of indistinguishable rentals. The quality is always top notch. We have tried around 5 different KIP hideaways but one in particular (can’t say which …otherwise it will be over-run!) has become an absolute favourite home-from-home that we have now visited 6 times! Next booking is in August - can’t wait!"

    Lynne, January 2023
  • "We stayed [at a Kip property] in December and it was one of the best experiences we’ve had. So much attention to detail was put into the place."

    Karina, December 2022
  • "Kip Hideways offers unique, beautiful places to stay. The selection of gorgeous hideaways is unmatched - the website and social media are five star. It is always the start of my getaway journey and never fails."

    P Duncan, December 2022
  • "I'm a huge fan of Kip Hideaways. Everywhere I've stayed has been beautiful and in an amazing location and the property owners are always lovely. The site takes the stress out of booking a place because it's so well curated. I recommend it to people all the time!"

    J, December 2022
  • "Kip had such a great selection of places to stay, we were spoilt for choice! The final cottage we decided on was as pretty as it looked in the images. It was easy to book and manage our stay and really exceeded our expectations. I'll definitely be using Kip again in the future."

    Emily, November 2022
  • "Have found some beautiful places through Kip! Can always rely that they are going to be high quality and unique stays."

    Alison, November 2022
  • "The curated selection of places to stay are lovely and make booking a trip so much easier! Once we had booked the process was very simple and the cabin we stayed at was even better than the images on online."

    Anna, November 2022
  • "A collection of unique and stunning properties. We have booked six times through Kip. Our five stays so far have been wonderful and as amazing as the descriptions and reviews. Sixth one to come in March ‘24 on the Isle of Lewis"

    Sarah, October 2022
  • "We've had nothing but amazing experiences with Kip. A unique hideaway in North Devon with the dog and kids, and a stunning treehouse in Herefordshire for some R&R just us two. Kip have a way of making things feel exclusive, intimate and unique. The little touches when you arrive really are the icing on the cake! We can't wait for our next stay and have recommended Kip to everyone we know."

    Erin, October 2022
  • "Kip hideaway has the best homes to book. It’s a great way to find beautiful places to stay in that you wouldn’t have been able to find on your own. Highly recommend!"

    S K, October 2022
  • "We stayed at one of the Hideaways in Cambridgeshire and it was gorgeous! Kip provided all the info we needed and there were some lovely sustainable touches too."

    Rosa, September 2022
  • "We had the most beautiful stay in a converted railway carriage in Cambridge. It was the perfect escape from London. We took our bikes on the train, cycled to the place, had a food-fired bath, and home made pizzas for dinner and played games accompanied by wine. There is a beautiful lake to for a daytime dip and we even had a delicious breakfast delivered to our carriage. We rented a boat down granchester meadows and had a picnic. I couldn’t recommend Kip enough! The perfect selection of unique places to stay."

    Amanda, September 2022
  • "My hobby is exploring Kip hideaways. I cannot describe how perfect is selection of Kip staycation. Always great hosts and design."

    Anastasia, August 2022
  • "Kip is always the first listings website I look at when looking to book a holiday. Great selection, excellent photography and accurate listings - it saves me time and the painful experience of browsing endlessly through other booking platforms. We stayed in one of their properties and everything was as promised. Customer service was a delight to speak to, both on their end and with the hosts. Highly recommended."

    Paul, July 2022
  • "Kip hideaways does all the hardwork for you and has the most beautiful collection of stays to look through. My favourite holiday was through kip when we stayed in a refurbished circus wagon in Herefordshire. It was heaven."

    Carmen, July 2022
  • "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."

    Countess Shyanne, June 2022
  • "Such a unique selection of stays, it's my go to place to find somewhere lovely for a weekend break. It's comforting to know that all the stays are beautiful, clean, hosted well and true to the photos and description. They feel really curated and sweet to receive a little welcome Kip gift. We've stayed in the Showman's Cabin and The Old Kitchen, and are both by far the most beautifully presented stays we've had in the UK. Can't wait to stay in more!"

    Chloe, May 2022
  • "I used Kip Hideaways to look for a unique place to stay for my partner's 30th birthday. I booked a lovely Eco-pod on the border of Wales and had the best time. I love that Kip Hideaways provides more sleek, stylised locations with a range of prices. They make it far easier to find special locations, for special occasions. Can't wait to find our next stay!"

    Niamh, March 2022
  • "We've used Kip Hideaways for special occasions like big birthdays and even our honeymoon. Their gorgeous places all have a special quality that is hard to describe, they reconnect you with yourself and nature. Thank you for the memories."

    Emily, March 2022
  • "Kip Hideaways has such a thoughtful and well curated collection of properties to choose from in a user friendly website. Knowing that the properties have been vetted and selected by a trusted pair of hands makes it a really smooth and positive booking experience when choosing a Cornwall escape for my family and I to enjoy while they were visiting from Australia. I have recommended it to lots of friends looking for trusted, unique accommodation options in the UK and will continue to do so."

    Jess, March 2022
  • "Kip is my go to place for unique stays in the UK! We have had amazing times finding tiny homes in the lake district to stunning apartments in Edinburgh. Such a worthwhile site to reference & their descriptions are always thorough"

    Emilie, March 2022
  • "A friend told me about Kip a couple of years ago, I joined and have been impressed by them ever since. I enjoy love looking through the properties and have stayed in two - which have definitely succeeded expectations. Always my first port of call when looking for our next break away."

    Ali, February 2022
  • "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

Each hideaway’s booking and cancellation policies are displayed on their page, under the booking calendar.

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.

No — we deliberately offer free membership, plus a £4.99/month rolling Insider membership, so you can try Kip out and see if it’s right for you before committing to a full year.

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, unique 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 only featured the absolute best 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.

Spaces with soul.
