The ultimate party houses in the UK that you can hire

Kate A 27 August 2019

There’s always an excuse for a big celebration, whether it’s a milestone birthday, an anniversary, a hen or stag do, or even a wedding. And with a big occasion, you’ll need an equally big venue – a party house that’s not only large enough for all your favourite people to stay, but one that also offers something a little extra special and luxurious to make your occasion an event to remember.

Our party houses in the UK are dotted around some of the most beautiful parts of the country, from the far reaches of Cornwall, throughout Wales, into the bright lights of London and up to the Highlands of Scotland.

Whether you’re looking for a grand country house, a chic city pad or a coastal hideaway, here are some of the ultimate party houses in the UK that you can hire:
