Winter Breaks in the Country

When thinking Winter.......Think manor houses, think walks in the fields, think scarf, coat and wellies. When you think of getting away to the country think Sleeps12!

Take a winter break this year and use the time away to reconnect with friends, family and loved ones. It has never been a better time to dust off those warm winter coats, locate the wellies that are lurking somewhere in the boot of the car or under the stairs, grab a thick pair of socks and travel to the country for a large get together. 

The days of the large country house weekend are certainly not a thing of the past. We have some wonderful large holiday houses in the country just waiting for your visit! Sleeps12 are quite possibly the premier self catering company for large groups. Specialising in large group accommodation in the South West we have a selection of properties that you will fall in love with right away! 

The majority of our properties are 5 star rated and provide facilities that even the most wonderful hotels cant always provide! Your very own private pool for instance. A bubbling hot tub or spa pool available all day for your own personal use. Magical BBQ lodges where you can have a proper 'Scandi' feel and BBQ to your hearts content. Lets hope that you appear to a blanket of snow! Large dining areas where you could even have a belated Christmas meal together!

How about hosting your own country house weekend for friends, book a large property sleeping between 20 and 30 and spend the time between stomping the local fields in search of a hot toddy or two and swimming leisurely in the pool. You could even hire a recommended cocktail waiter and caterer for yor very own dinner party. Ask your friends to bring evening dress and you'll be well away sampling the 1920's and 1930's atmosphere. While you're at it why not make it themed! We hear that Gatsby is a popular choice at the moment!

If you are looking to have a slightly smaller and probably more sedate weekend then gather the family together and the kids, they are well provided for at our properties too. Think games rooms, outdoor play equipment and trampolines! How about celebrating a birthday, anniversary or simply just spending time together in lovely surroundings? We can recommend a variety of local things to see and do in case you want a little time to yourself or would like to do some exploring. Our holiday properties with wood burners are always a popluar choice too and help you really embrace the wintery weather. 

Let us take the hard work out of your plans and take a look at our wonderful properties online. We have everything in one place from descriptions, floor plans, videos, pictures and even an online booking form so even if the office is closed you can still go ahead and make a booking. You really will find something you will love here at Sleeps12.com.
