Rent a mansion or very large house on Exmoor to host a family celebration. These huge self-catered properties can usually be rented from two days upwards. If you are planning a party of some kind, one day is necessary beforehand to decorate and organise the property and allow guests to arrive. The next day is the celebration and fun time. Most people would prefer that guests stay that night, especially if the partying has continued late into the night. That would make most bookings at least 3 nights long. And because you are self-catering, there is breakfast to provide for guests on the morning of departure and tidying up to do before you leave.

Excellent dining facilities

These huge holiday rentals specialise in events for big groups of people and are equipped to cater for large-scale cooking, food preparation and storage. There may be more than dishwasher. Things are on an industrial scale.

Best of all, they have a large dining room where everyone can gather together to enjoy the party.

Leisure facilities

Each large property has certain assets, some may have a swimming pool with sauna and Jacuzzi, others may have big multi-person hot tub or there may be tennis courts. These extra leisure facilities make entertaining a large group of people easy although there is so much to see and do on Exmoor that it would be a shame to just spend all of the time around the mansion.
