I currently trying to organise a long weekend away for a large group of friends and our kids (14 adults 9 kids). I have found a couple of sites specialising in large properties and made a couple of availability requests already but I would be interested to hear of any recommendations anyone may have.
There's a website with domain in the title - can't find it right now, will keep trying. Haven't used them but I found it whilst looking for a place for dsis's 40th. The YHA rent a hostel scheme is an alternative out of season.
English Country Cottages used to have some huge ones (haven't looked for years).
here . "No. in party" only goes up to 20 but they always have lots of groups of cottages in the same place (eg barn conversion things) that would do too - might be worth ringing them to ask what they've got.
I'll get busy tomorrow - loads of new ideas here, thanks everyone. Ideally I would like one large property - I just need to work out the bedroom permutations required.
There are 2 singletons going so I want them to have their own rooms rather than sharing a twin as they usually end up doing (not that they mind but it seems as though they are always being penalised for being single somehow!). Would probably need a 19 person property I think as 4 of the children are small babies so are unlikely to count as a "person".
