Large Self Catering Accommodation

It’s always best to find large self catering accommodation if you’re planning a holiday or a weekend away with a big group. It’s just so much easier than a hotel, so much more relaxed, and you don’t have to share your space with anyone else – with strangers, which, let’s face it, isn’t what you want, especially if you’re looking to have a few days away celebrating a big birthday or an anniversary with the special people in your life.

Holiday Homes In Somerset

Sleeps 12 have a lot of large group holiday homes in Somerset. Tell you why; apart from the fact that we live here, it’s one of the most popular parts of the West Country for holidays and the draw is understandable.

Cottages For Large Groups With A Hot Tub

We’ve noticed that we’re getting a lot of enquiries lately for cottages for large groups with a hot tub, and we were talking about it in the office, trying to pinpoint why. We concluded that there’s no particular reason, just that sometimes we all need a break from the hectic pace of modern life – you know, work, the school run, the washing, the ironing, the gardening, it goes on and on, and sometimes you just want to escape to somewhere where you don’t have to think about any of those things. A holiday in the country with a group of friends or family helps you to unwind, especially if there’s a lovely warm hot tub for you to have a soak in.

Big Houses For Family Celebrations

This year kicked off with a big event in our family – my father’s 70th birthday; he wanted to mark the occasion by doing something that meant a lot to him – a celebration but not a party. “You can rent big houses for family celebrations” he said. “Let’s do that, let's all have a weekend away together. My treat.” The task of finding the perfect place to stay was left to my siblings and me, but with Sleeps 12 it was a doddle.
