3. Chateau Belle Vie, Hauts-de-France
Chateau Belle Vie was built in the 1880s by a wealthy family to serve one purpose – to entertain.

The reception rooms are nothing short of remarkable and then there are the extra touches such as the grand staircase, indoor mini-tennis, snooker room and indoor trampolining that take this party house to the next level.

6. Waterside House, Sussex
Waterside House is the embodiment of an English country house. Surrounded by thick woodland and just an hours drive from London – there’s nothing you won’t love. And guests will have so much to discover; the stone patio with its luxurious hot tub, the adjacent 800-acre lake to the large opulent kitchen (which is a key favourite of ours). So whether you’re enjoying watersports on the lake, fixing dinner, or simply watching the sunset from the garden, you’ll feel a million miles away from home.

7. Peanswood Country Manor, Sussex
Peanswood Country Manor is one of the best party houses in our portfolio. You can make this manor what you will. If you fancy a chilled evening, you can cosy up in the lounge area and watch trashy movies until you fall asleep, or you can enjoy an alfresco meal on the patio with bottles of Pinot Grigio by your side. Last but certainly not least, the manor has a range of outdoor entertainment to keep everyone happy. There’s the swimming pool with its adjacent bar and an outside playground which is floored with wood chips for safety.

Enjoy the atmosphere of dancing the night away within ten hectares of private gardens and wooded grounds at Chateau de Jaques.

Plus, if you’re starting to feel a little cooped up indoors, you can take a quick fifteen-minute walk to the nearby lake for an afternoon of relaxing (before the party starts up again).
