Group Holidays

Hiring a cottage is a great solution for large groups of friends

A special birthday, anniversary or your upcoming wedding all deserve to be celebrated in style! What better way to do so than gathering a group of your closest friends and family and enjoying a relaxing break in an idyllic setting.

Most of us would consider a hotel for such an event rather than a private property, but there are many advantages to staying in a larger house, with the main one being the communal aspect. With large lounge areas, you can get the whole group together to watch films, play games or just relax beside the fire on those colder evenings. Unlike a hotel, you can have private use of your own kitchen and dining area so that you can prepare meals as a group and all sit down to dinner together. You're also not restricted to specific breakfast times – let's face it, we don't all want to be out of bed before 9am at the weekend!

Another brilliant attribute to a holiday house is the private garden! For those special summer breaks a garden is essential, with a BBQ on the patio and large lawns for the children to play on, it really can't be beaten.

Many of the larger houses we have on offer include multiple living areas, so there will plenty of space for playing, reading, relaxing and socialising too. The cost benefits also add up well, with the average price per head generally being lower than at a hotel or B&B.

We offer houses large enough to sleep up to 20+ people with everything you need to make sure your group has a fantastic time.
