You’re planning a family holiday for your own and your extended family, a large family celebration or a getaway for a group of you and your best friends – you know that booking a holiday cottage is the best way to stay when you want to spend time with the people you’re staying and holidaying with, but the problem is finding a place that’s big enough.

You consider a hotel location but here you will have to share social spaces with strangers and there may not even be any spaces big enough, and if so you need to pay for a private room or get together in a restaurant where you are limited to how much time you’re able to spend and you will be dining surrounded by people who are not part of your group. None of these places will be ideal for that lovely family gathering you’re planningΓǪ it’s time to consider a more relaxed and comfortable setting.

Book you and your family into a large holiday cottage, one that will be exclusively yours and one where you are all able to relax, kick back and enjoy yourselves at your own pace, eat when you want and what you want and one that will accommodate all ages and wishes.

Browse through HIDEAWAYS’ larger properties, we have some truly magnificent ones for you to choose as the setting for your next family gathering. All with great social spaces where you and your party can make yourselves at home and relax, party, eat, dance, chill, drink and talk exactly as you please and when you please.

In the kind of holiday cottage that is perfect for larger groups or in the perfect family holiday cottage, we know the importance of the space being one that suits groups of many generations or ages, so many of our large holiday cottages will have several different common rooms, some that will accommodate everyone and smaller ones where smaller groups can gather for a little peace and quieter conversations. Likewise, kids hopped up in the company of their brothers, sisters, cousins and friends will need large gardens where they can run and explore, fun tree houses outside, den making spaces inside and even games rooms where they can play their favourite board and computer games.
