How to Find the Best Accommodation for your Large Group
When looking for self catering for a large group do remember to think about your needs as a group. It may be important for example to have a large function room or large dining room where you can all be seated. Other considerations may be whether there is a quiet area available at the self catering property where some people can take some time out and whether there is a large social area for socialising together. It may even be important for you to find a cottage with a games room where you can all have fun together and let your hair down. Or if relaxing is more what you all enjoy doing you may be looking for large group self catering accommodation with a swimming pool or hot tub.
For specific searches do make use of our search assistant where you can find properties that take large groups and search for other criteria that is important to you. Going away on a self catering break as part of a large group - whether it be with family or friends can be fantastic fun. Do enjoy your large group break, relax and have fun.
Remember many large country houses or large cottages do have minimum requirements in terms of the number of nights bookings that they accept. However, many do accept short break bookings nowadays as it is common for large groups to want short self catering breaks away.
What's more, holidaying as a group can often lead to savings, particularly where the cost per person per night is shared.
