Merry Christmas From Sleeps 12: Big Holiday Houses In The UK

The festive season is well and truly upon us now so we just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from Sleeps 12. Put your feet up and have a well deserved rest – that’s what we’re looking forward to doing because it’s been bonkers busy in the office lately with our big holiday houses in the UK rapidly filling up for 2020.

It’s been another good year for large group holidays in the UK; more and more people seem to be staying on their home soil, and we’re noticing a big increase in guests from overseas. And why not? Old Blighty has so much to offer! It’s got a good mix of everything, hasn’t it? Award winning beaches, beautiful countryside, family attractions, activities galore, splendid cities – and if you stay with Sleeps 12, fantastic group accommodation with top-notch facilities like swimming pools, hot tubs, saunas and games rooms.

We added a few new properties to our portfolio in 2019. Among them, in Devon, there’s Hill View, just a short drive from the peaceful fishing village of Beer on the Jurassic Coast; Shires is snuggled in a valley, amidst the glorious countryside of the Yarty Valley, and just up the road, a mile or so from Honiton, is a lovely big Devon holiday cottage, Pippinsands. Not far from the Somerset county town of Taunton, we have Frog Street and at the foot of the Quantock Hills AONB is Dustings.

Ready in 2020 is Croftview near the pretty village of Hinton St George in Somerset, an absolute corker of a house that sleeps up to 30 people and has its own spa hall with a pool, hot tub and sauna. Likewise, Herons Bank near Cullompton in Devon, another one with a private indoor pool and a hot tub. The latest is Chateau La Chuteliere and The Stables not far from Poitiers in France, a dream of a place tucked away in its own 23 acre grounds. All amazing houses with plenty of snooze space and heaps to keep large groups entertained. Quite literally, as soon as we put them live, they went like hot cakes.

And that seems to be a familiar theme with Sleeps12. 2020 is fast filling up so if you’re thinking of booking a big holiday house for a family holiday, a reunion with friends, a hen weekend or, what’s very popular these days, to bring your nearest and dearest to celebrate a big birthday or anniversary, now’s the time to do it. Seriously. It’s a well known fact that straight after Christmas more holidays are booked than any other time of year (another reason why we need a good rest – it’s going to be hectic when we get back to the office!). So, get yourself comfy with the Quality Street (yes, we know, it’s just the toffee pennies left by this time) and have a jolly good browse of our gorgeous large group self catering accommodation.

To make things easier for you, you can reserve your selected property for 48 hours whilst you check with the rest of your group before confirming your booking. Then you can start getting all excited and look forward to getting away with your family and friends in 2020! And talking of excited – someone’s just brought some mince pies in; time to put our Santa hats on. Have a good ‘un everyone! MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM SLEEPS12 x
