Staying in big country houses or groups of cottages.

Large country houses to rent for weekends tend to get booked well in advance, especially for the bank holidays and high season summer holidays when group golfing holidays and water sports holiday activities close to the sea, are in high demand - accurate late availability and special offers are highlighted. Don't feel restricted to self-catering, there are agencies specialising in cooks for the weekend and many people who hire a house for a large party will decide to split the cost and hire a cook for the weekend! This may offer a cheaper dining experience than you think, and we recommend that large groups consider this when booking their accommodation - it is a luxury but per head it can offer great value for money.

Groups of cottages together offer small group privacy yet a large party atmosphere - giving guest their 'own space and privacy' whilst sharing facilities and activities, a golf course, a games room, swimming pool (indoor or outdoor) or spa facilities and dining area for example - these cottages / houses are often adjoining or adjacent to each other.

Children friendly and pet friendly properties (select the number of dogs or pets that are holidaying with you) are available throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

Our editors highlight big houses for rent throughout UK on our social media pages, alongside local events and tips about coastal properties - for example; information on seaside resorts with beach houses, golf courses with green fee discounts for big groups, Spas with special offers (for a luxury treat), holiday houses with a tennis court (run a tennis tournament for your guests), cycle rides, charity events etc.. It is such fun choosing a large house to rent for a big group to stay in - there is a great choice of picture postcard accommodation ranging from secluded farmhouses, fishing villages, seaside holiday homes, contemporary eco-friendly cottages and huge detached period country houses privately situated within acres of grounds and landscaped gardens. When the sun is shining, it is hard to beat a holiday in UK, we hope you find a very special place to stay.
