Sell ING second home.

I currently have 2 houses. House A in England and house B in Scotland. 

I lived in house A for many years and bought and moved to house B for work 3 years ago. 

Intention was to rent house A but keep it to eventually return to.

However, if I sold house A, I'm wondering what the tax implications would be? 

House A has gone up in value quite a bit since I bought it. What would seem fair would be to pay capital gains on the change in value in the 3 years since I bought house B. Is that how it works?
