Big Holiday Homes For Hen Weekends

Right, hands up – who got engaged over the festive hols? Congratulations! Research shows that Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are the most popular times of the year for getting engaged, followed closely by New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and then Valentine’s Day. Maybe it’s because there are more people around – friends and family you want to share the moment with; everyone is in a more relaxed frame of mind and there’s much celebrating going on anyway. There’s just something incredibly romantic about a Christmas proposal, maybe it’s all the twinkly lights, the magical feeling in the air, the excitement and that – and what a gift – an engagement ring!

Well, Christmas is just around the corner and here at the Sleeps12 office we’re all looking forward to taking time off, putting our feet up and being in the moment with friends and family, but in the meantime there’s much work to be done. What a year it’s been - busy, busy, busy! We’ve taken on some fabulous new properties, seen additions and improvements to some of our long timers, and we’ve got more lined up to visit in the new year. We’ve met more lovely people, had a lot of laughter, and on occasion, it’s been hectic, but we’ve done what we strive to do - another year of happy customers enjoying amazing holidays and short breaks at our large group holiday houses in the UK and France.

Large Group Holiday Home in The New Forest

New property alert! New property alert! Our team have been up to Hampshire this week, to Lyndhurst in the heart of the New Forest to be exact – and look what we’ve got! Boy oh boy, we are so thrilled to add Ortus House to our portfolio; we’d be doing cartwheels in the office if we could! This is a truly amazing house with a lovely history – it used to be a maternity hospital so lots of bonny babies came into the world there, curling their little toes, the source of much rejoicing! Maybe that’s what makes it so perfect for celebrations and entertaining, the laid back happy feel that wafts through every room.

We get a lot of enquiries these days from people who have a property that they think is right for the Sleeps12 collection. Sometimes it’s a house or cottage that’s already been run as a large group holiday let for months or years, sometimes it’s a newly built or developed property and sometimes, it’s just a collection of old barns waiting for a new lease of life.

We have some exciting news to share with you! A new property that’s great for all kinds of large group stays, and this time it’s a gem of a rural retreat tucked away in a lovely private location in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
