70th Birthday Ideas

Got a big birthday coming up? Your three score years and ten, and not quite sure how to mark it? Well, firstly, big congratulations, and secondly, we can help; in fact we can make things easy for you as we have some fantastic 70th birthday ideas. Without a doubt one of the best ways to celebrate a milestone like this is to get away for a week or a few days to a gorgeous large holiday house with a bunch of your nearest and dearest whether it’s friends or family – and don’t forget, more often than not, dogs come too!

So, round ‘em up, neighbours, friends, your children and their children, brothers, sisters – parents, if they’re still about. Make a list of who’s coming and then find a lovely big holiday house where you can all spend a few days celebrating this big occasion. Doesn’t matter when your birthday is, you don’t need to pray for good weather when you book a holiday with Sleeps12 because we’ve made sure our luxury holiday cottages have something for everyone come rain or shine. Oh yes, we have swimming pools (mostly indoors), hot tubs (often under cover), saunas, games rooms, BBQ lodges and play areas, so EVERYONE CAN HAVE FUN. And that’s exactly what it’s all about, having fun, after all, birthdays are to be celebrated.

And how to celebrate? Well, if you have a look at our Extras pages you’ll find some very good 70th birthday ideas that will make it all so much more memorable. Food plays an important part in celebrations so hire one of our recommended caterers to come and cook you a scrumptious feast, they’ll bring waiting staff and everything and you can have canapes, a buffet or a 3 course meal, up to you. You could book an activity, like a cheeky life drawing class, a baking session with a star from the Great British Bake Off, a dance workshop where you can master a new style – Flamenco, Bollywood or Salsa. You could all get dressed up for a casino night, or if you’ve got children with you have a craft session, they’ll love it! Another way of marking the occasion is to book our portrait photographer to come and take beautiful family pics; a wonderful reminder of your 70th birthday.

See? There’s so much you can do without even leaving the comfort of your luxury large group holiday house, but if you’d rather go out and do something you’ll find plenty in the local area, whether it’s a visit to a beautiful historic house, or an activity like clay pigeon shooting, archery, 4x4 driving, an Exmoor Wildlife Safari, or pony trekking in the countryside. There are great places to eat close to our big holiday houses for up to 30; charming country pubs, top notch restaurants and quaint tea rooms. You’ll find something that’s just right, and what a wonderful time of it you’ll have.

So, where’s it to be? Our large holiday homes and cottages are mostly in the West Country, in Somerset and Devon, but don’t rule out Wiltshire, The Forest of Dean, The New Forest, Monmouthshire and Worcestershire – and even France, where you can rent the most beautiful chateau in 23 acres of very private grounds. What a treat! Take your pick and book today!
