What Big Holiday Houses Offer for Holidays

Larger holiday homes usually have atleast 4 bedrooms, but in addition to more bedrooms, these properties tend to offer more spacious living areas and plenty of space for groups of friends and family to relax in and socialise together on holiday.  For bigger groups there are plenty of larger properties including big cottages with six bedrooms, 7 bedrooms, 8 bedroomed holiday houses, 10 bedroom and even larger holiday homes.

Choose to holiday in Scotland and you may be able to rent a country estate, whereas in England there are country houses, big barns and large cottages available to choose from and in Wales big cottages, mansions and roomy farmhouses.  There are plenty of large holiday homes to choose from in Ireland too.

Remember when searching for and booking a large holiday house, it's important to check out the amount of available parking as if you have a number of vehicles you'll need space for them, or parking available nearby.

Spacious Living Accommodation for Large Groups in Big Cottages

As one would expect, there will be spacious reception rooms that allow guests personal space and yet the opportunity to gather and talk. A dining room should have a large table that seats the entire group. These big self-catering properties lend themselves to endless purposes, birthday celebrations, hen parties and stag weekends, the festive times of year such as Christmas and New Year.

Large self-catering for walking groups, can be popular, especially in Britain's national parks. These groups live and socialise together for the duration of their walking holiday and need large cottages with multiple bathrooms.


Large Holiday Homes with Leisure Facilities

Swimming pool at large houseParticularly popular with groups are holiday houses with leisure facilities such as hot tubs, swimming pools and games rooms.  These types of properties can be ideal for keeping families and friends entertained on holiday, and houses with indoor pools and indoor games rooms are particularly popular as they offer enjoyment and entertainment all year round, whatever the weather.


Special Celebrations, Parties and Wedding groups

Friends celebrating on holidaySome groups are searching for a big cottage for a special occasion like a hen party, a stag party, a birthday, a reunion with friends or another special celebration.  The holiday houses listed have different policies on the types of groups and bookings they welcome, some only welcome family groups whereas others will welcome groups like hens and stags. 

For a very special celebration like a wedding, mansion rental is the norm with either self-catering or outside caterers. There is often the possibility of erecting a marquee if the gardens are extensive.


Cottage Complexes are popular with groups too

Another option open to groups of friends and family is to rent a number of smaller cottages at a cottage complex rather than one big large holiday house.  Some complexes even feature a party room where your group can meet up for meals and socialising. Alternative accommodation for large groups is to hire a mansion or manor house for a self-catering holiday.

If you prefer, you can also search cottages by Occupancy.

Whatever the occasion and type of big holiday house you're searching for, whether a barn conversion, a country cottage, a lodge, a log cabin, a converted farmhouse or a mansion, we hope you find the perfect rental for your group of friends and family.
