Some of the really big self-catering houses will accommodate 22, 24 or 26, up to approx 30 guests. Many of the largest cottages offering self-catering group accommodation centre around or offer activities; outdoor holiday activities may include an outdoor swimming pool, a hot tub, tennis courts, cycling, fishing, shooting, hill walking, riding or water sports (especially popular for people taking their pets / dogs on holiday with them). Indoor games rooms, swimming pools and saunas are an added luxury during the winter months when the weather in UK is not guaranteed.

Types of property include, villas, farmhouses, cottages, castles, mansion houses, town houses, apartments, estate lodges, bothy’s, converted barns, characterful period properties; Edwardian, Georgian and Victorian houses - all with a fantastic variety of unique features. A huge selection of contemporary and traditional houses are available for weekly self-catering holiday lets, or special weekend / week day short breaks - giving you the totally flexible holiday solution. WiFi and internet connections are common amongst holiday homes - but not guaranteed in all rural areas, so if this is important check carefully the property details.

Rent 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 seasonal 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 larger 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. If some of your group members drive electric car or hybrid vehicles - check for electric car plug-in charging points in the houses or their location close by.

Our editors highlight big houses for rent throughout UK on our social media pages, alongside local events, and tips about coastal towns and villages - 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, there is a great choice of picture postcard accommodation ranging from secluded farmhouses, fishing villages, seaside holiday homes, contemporary eco-friendly cottages and vast detached period country houses privately situated within acres of grounds and landscaped gardens. When the sun is shining, it is hard to beat a vacation in UK, we hope you find a very special place to stay.
