These are rare, which is why you don’t get much response. You have the tube headphone amps with a mediocre DAC as an afterthought. And then you have the tube DACs with a mediocre headphone output. Below is what I found, and to be honest I think that is all there is. Which are available in the UK you can check out yourself. I have a sense the Black Ice tube DAC is the one for you, gets good reviews in each iteration.

DAC/HPA
Brinkmann Nyquist Mk II
Nagra TUBE DAC
Copland DAC 215
Synthesis Roma 69DC
Black Ice Glass FX Tube DAC_DSD WiFi

HPA/DAC
AudioValve (various models)
Pathos Acoustics (various models)
Synthesis Roma 41DC+
LAB12 HPA
Auris Audio Euterpe
Quad PA-ONE+
Unison Research SH
