to celebrate a number of momentous occasions (birthdays / anniversaries including a silver and a gold)

age range from 3 to 87

preferably somewhere that has style and lovely food?

between London and Manchester would be great

OOOOH!

I am interested in this too as my parents have their 40th in 3 years and there are 18 in our family.


Will watch this with interest.

We've used English country cottages a few times, something like this might be suitable.

Looks fabulous... might have to bookmark that one for myself, could be fun to do something like this one day!

I would love to do this sort of thing but unfortunately not too keen to spend that much time with the vast majority of my family memebers. maybe I'll just gate crash someone elses happy family get together.

back away from the drink wildwoman you're seeing double

HedTwig Mon 30-Jul-07 20:05:16

maybe I need slightly less fabulous?

>gawd will you look at the money on them?

Waswondering Mon 30-Jul-07 20:07:38

What about this? It would allow a variety of accommodation on one site, including one option of accommodation on one level which might suit the 87yo - and if there are a couple of buildings, the 87yo can retire gracefully while the children rampage noisily elsewhere?

Waswondering Mon 30-Jul-07 20:11:36

Or if you want a catle this might do - but might be more of a hotel?

Google 'The Landmark Trust,' Twig.

They restore unusual and historic buildings, and then let them out to guests. Some of their properties are astounding - and the prices aren't out the way if the cost if shared.

They are all self-catering however.

If you need me to post you their handbook (although a couple of years out of date), I'll be happy to post it to you.
