Where to stay with a large group for New Year's

Clare 22 July 2020

New Year’s is all about celebrating with friends and family, so why not get everyone together and escape for a New Year’s Eve break in a fabulous group party house? Party the night away in style and enjoy a holiday at the same time!

The best thing? No-one needs to be a designated driver, giving everyone a chance to enjoy the celebrations and retire to the privacy of their own room in the small hours. We’ve picked out a selection of our large houses to rent for New Year’s Eve.

The Weir House | Ludlow, Shropshire

Sleeps 12

Stylish and elegant: just two of the words we would use to describe this spectacular property! Every room reveals an exclusive style and lavish details, but on entering the property, it’s the unique bar area and impressive open-plan dining area that will capture your attention. Imagine sipping cocktails, devouring tasty party food and counting down to a new year with your nearest and dearest in this sophisticated space. The rest of the property is equally as impressive with a kitchen that once served Michelin-starred food, a peaceful cinema room, and luxurious bedrooms each with their own lounge area!

We can’t imagine you’ll want to stay away from the Weir House for long but, for a change of scenery, the market town of Ludlow is within walking distance, and the surrounding area is rich in activities. Blow the cobwebs away on New Year’s Day and head out for a refreshing walk on Whitcliffe Common or in Mortimer Forest.

It’s super dog-friendly with French doors looking straight out onto the enclosed garden where pups can get some fresh air. What’s more, its swanky interior makes it the perfect place to relax and recoup after an evening of partying.
