Large party houses

Whatever the celebration – birthday party, Christmas celebrations, family reunions, weddings, or even stag and hen dos, our party houses to rent and large group houses are the perfect answer. We understand organising a large group getaway can be difficult, so our aim is to ease your worries a little bit, help you find the ideal place, and hopefully prevent you pulling your hair out.

No matter your requirement, we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Need a dog-friendly place? No problem. A fully catered event? Sure thing. Make sure all your party actually get back to you in time? No, we can’t do that, sorry. 

What we can do is find you the perfect place for your celebration, whether you’re looking for somewhere that will suit great grandma all the way down to baby, somewhere that’s close to the city so you can go on a night out, or somewhere totally private… we’ve got you covered.

 

How to find your perfect party house?

You can choose a party house with a wide range of different amenities. Click in one of these amenities: swimming pools, hot tubs, saunas, games rooms, cinemas, spas, fitness rooms, dog-friendly. Or discover our party houses near the beach or villages.

Otherwise, you can check all the party houses collection (across the whole world), or just the UK party houses. Then filter by the amenities you want with the advance search of the search bar (just below the "Search" button).

What will you find?  

  • Where in the UK are our large houses located? Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. However, we do also have huge chateaux in France and luxurious villas in Spain that could easily be the setting for your celebrations. 
  • How accessible are our large party houses? Generally, you’ll need a car to get to our UK party houses, due to rural locations. Renting a party house for a celebration in the UK is a lot easier for those with kids, those not wanting to travel long distances, or for those that need somewhere that will accept late check-ins on a Friday after work - they're so much more accessible than somewhere abroad.
  • What type of party houses do you offer?  Depending on what you're looking for, we offer properties on the beach, in the countryside, close to major cities or near to villages

    Stag/Hen do

    The last hurrah for your soon-to-be legally wedded friend – so you want them to go out with a bang, and that’s where our collection of luxury party houses come in. They’re perfect for stag and hen do celebrations – whether you’re looking for a rural location or a property that makes it easy to get into the city for a night out, you’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for with our stag and hen weekend party houses. And with some properties not having a noise restriction (as long as you’re respectful) you’ll be able to have all the fun you want, without the worry.

    Our most popular party houses to rent tend to be located on the outskirts but close to major cities so that guests can enjoy a night out before retreating back to their country party house (where they can be as loud as they want without disturbing the neighbours).

    Top tips for organising a stag/hen do

    1. Where are the invitees located? Ask everyone where they would be willing to travel to and find a mutually beneficial location. 
    2. Decide a maximum budget per person, so you don’t throw out an amount that makes people feel uncomfortable. 
    3. Do you want to be close to a city or more rural? Think about the noise levels your group might produce!
    4. Is there anything you want your party house to have on the grounds? A BBQ, lake, swimming pool, games room… 
    5. Find your top 3 properties and make sure everyone is agreed!
    6. Chat to our concierge team, ask any questions you feel like you need to know - is there a noise restriction, can you decorate, how easy is it to get into town?
    7. Organise any on-site activities with the help of our concierge team – clay pigeon shooting, archery, yoga etc. 
    8. Pre-plan catering – you might want the party to be fully catered if you’re in a rural location.
