Historically, owning land meant status, security and power, so for centuries money was poured into big estates. As a result, the UK boasts some of the finest castles, mansions and stately homes in the world. And with big comes space – at all the properties on our books you’ll find well-appointed reception rooms, generous bedrooms, large kitchens and grounds that are always more than big enough and that sometimes stretch for miles. All perfect for hosting that special family event, friends’ reunion or ‘just-because’ group holiday.
You’ll find room for everyone and all ages, and many of our properties have accessible accommodation facilities and/or provide baby equipment. Plus, lots of big holiday homes allow dogs who will love all that outdoor space. Equestrian fans in your group? Some large houses to rent even provide stables to cater for horses.
Large holiday homes enjoy some of the best settings anywhere in the country and take in the nation’s best scenery. Think rolling hills, majestic mountains, rugged coastlines, secluded beaches, verdant valleys, historic woodlands… And across the length and breadth of the land.
Fancy visiting the dramatic Jurassic Coast in Dorset? Exploring the bucolic charm of the Cotswolds? Discovering the rugged hills in the Peak District or the picturesque Yorkshire Dales? Experiencing the remoteness of a Scottish glen? Or staying in the depths of a Welsh valley? We have large holiday homes in England, big cottages in Wales and spacious houses in Scotland. Take a look at our selection of UK large houses to rent and find the ideal pad for your group holiday.
Make your family get-together, landmark anniversary or special occasion that bit more extraordinary in one of our unique big houses. Stay in a castle, stately home or even a palace. Make yours a sporting lodge, a country estate, big cottage or luxury mansion. Wherever you choose to stay, get ready to experience a space like no other.
You may want to treat yourselves to supreme luxury touches as you discover how the other half lives. Maybe you fancy quirky décor or uber-modern surroundings. Or perhaps you hanker after some good old English shabby chic. Our portfolio of large houses to rent in the UK caters for all tastes in design.
And while you’re in one of our unique holiday homes, Lord and Lady-it a bit. Spend your weekend hosting a house party à la Downton Abbey or Lallybroch in one of our country houses for rent. Or take a week relishing surroundings fit for a King and Queen plus all their courtiers with a castle stay in Scotland. Make this group holiday one to savour and remember forever.
Just because our big UK holiday homes come with oodles of space, indoor and outdoor, it doesn’t mean they’re expensive. Quite the opposite – do the maths and you’ll find they’re almost always cheaper per head than a hotel. And with many times as much space and all to yourselves because our wow houses go hand in hand with privacy too.
As well as boasting some of the finest locations anywhere in the UK, our selection of big country pads to rent all have the best of the British outdoors on their very doorstep. Deer parks, forests, mountains, river valleys and beaches, waiting to be explored by you all on your holiday.
Take a brisk walk, challenging hike, thrilling mountain bike ride, gentle beach comb or a sedate drive round the local attractions. Whatever your pace and desired adrenalin rush, the great outdoors is yours to explore and enjoy when you stay at one of our large holiday homes in the UK.
Our selection ranges from basic but comfortable party houses, to modern church conversions, ancient castles to luxury lodges in the United Kingdom. Something for everyone in taste & budget!
We market a great range of value for money, quirky, historically interesting, uber-smart or just family friendly self-catering holiday group accommodation.
