UK large houses, holiday homes and big group accommodation

We specialise in bringing people together: whether it’s to reconnect after a long time, to relax away from our busy lives or to celebrate all those big moments in life, from milestone birthdays and family reunions, to hen parties and weddings. 

We know what makes a large house special. Within our collection, you will find the ultimate party houses to provide a backdrop for big celebrations, or holiday homes where complete indulgence is the aim. Imagine intimate family homes with added touches of luxury to grand manor houses and unique escapes beyond your wildest dreams. Our vast collection spans the length and breadth of the country from where the land meets the sea on the remarkable Cornish coast to the furthest reaches of the Highlands in Scotland.

Our large group accommodation presents the perfect opportunity to enjoy a beautiful home from home where you can catch up en masse, with our large houses and cottages offering spacious places to gather and socialise. And whilst home comforts are top of our list of must-haves, so too are superb facilities such as swimming pools, hot tubs, tennis courts and many other luxurious amenities that can be enjoyed either at the holiday property itself or arranged nearby.
