Large Holiday Homes & Group Accommodation in the UK

Why are we called House Parties? 

The years between 1861 and 1914 were considered the “golden age” of country house entertaining. Country House Parties have existed for many years as seen in Lord Byron’s poem “A Country House Party,” Hence the reason for naming our website House Parties because we believe in the tradition of a group of people getting together in a beautiful large property for a weekend away whether it be for a birthday, anniversary or simply a chance to catch up with family.

We are a boutique agency with a collection of large luxury holiday houses, many of which are exclusive to the House Parties website. Here you’ll find a variety of stunning self-catering properties to rent for the perfect getaway.

Whether you are looking for luxurious group accommodation for a family get together, a hen party, birthday party or anniversary, let us help you find your ideal property.


Long weekend for my 60th birthday. Couldn’t have picked better – the fantastic weather did help though! All my family – 19 of us – had a ball!! Ages from 4 to 60 thoroughly enjoyed the house, the cinema room, the huge kitchen and the hot tub!! Only 20 minutes walk from Tarbet. For a long weekend I would definitely recommend!

What a house! What a views! impressive. Nothing could have been better. The customer services and the caretaker were just the best ever. We had an incredible weekend. The house has everything you could wish and more. Best choice!

Brilliant location, outstanding accommodation – great for families – so much space and loads to do regardless of the weather. Recommended chef was great. Will be back

We had such a wonderful time at Alexander House. Such a perfect place to stay with friends in beautiful surroundings. The pool, hot tub and games room mean there’s no reason to leave the house!! The beds were super comfy and we loved the open fire. Thanks for letting us stay- we had a brilliant time !

Our luxury large holiday houses provide plenty of space for you to entertain, whether it be a relaxed BBQ or a 3 course meal created for you by one of our recommended chefs. Selected properties even have two kitchens to make entertaining a breeze.

Trying to keep everyone entertained can be a challenge; many of our large holiday homes come with hot tubs and games rooms, some have cinemas and swimming pools as well as outdoor childrens’ play areas so there is something for everyone of all age groups. We also have plenty of pet friendly accommodation, so the whole family is welcome.

If you’re looking for a rural retreat, we’ve got plenty of holiday cottages and houses to rent in idyllic locations. For the ultimate relaxation, choose accommodation with a hot tub and you’ll be able to admire the stunning views as you soak your troubles away.

Our large luxury holiday houses are all unique in their own way. Whichever house you choose to make your home, you will be certain that you have chosen a property that will be the perfect setting for a wonderful stay and a place to create lasting memories.

We can help you book your family holiday months in advance, or if you are looking for a late deal on a short break or a midweek getaway, then let us find the perfect accommodation type for you.
