Large Group Holidays in the UK and France

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.

Special Offers on Large Group Pre-Christmas Stays

Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat; if you haven’t done it already, it’s time to plan something to look forward to and how good does a gathering of friends, family or colleagues in a gorgeous house in the country sound? The thing is, Christmas gets very, very busy, we all know that, and what with other commitments, it’s not always possible to do these things during the festive holiday, so do it earlier in the month and kick start that wonderful build up to Christmas with a weekend or a midweek break away at a luxury Sleeps12 holiday house.

Big House Holidays

Life seems so much busier these days and everyone gets caught up in the constant ebb and flow of work and school, chores to do, keeping on top of things, and well, just everything really. Eventually you reach the stage where you just think “I need a holiday” and then you find your friends and your family are saying it too, and actually, you haven’t caught up with them properly for a while, so hey, why don’t you sort the numbers, put your heads together and book a big house holiday?

Luxury Large Group Holiday Accommodation

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.

Corporate Hospitality Ideas

Those of you familiar with the Sleeps12 concept will know that our large group self-catering accommodation is absolutely spot on for holidays and for gatherings of friends and family, but what we’re seeing more and more of these days is bookings for corporate hospitality; people who want to step away from the usual hotel based stays and treat their key clients to a few days away at a luxury holiday home that sleeps between 8 and 30 people.

Frog Street: Rural Retreat Sleeping 14

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. We say tucked away, and it is, but it’s still very easily reached from the M5 and the A303, and only a couple of miles off the A358, so easy to get to and well worth the travelling. Without any further ado, may we introduce to you Frog Street:

Holiday Homes With Private Indoor Pools

We’ve all got our different ideas about what makes a holiday, and for some it’s a big group of friends going off on an all-inclusive package holiday to somewhere in the sun where you share a hotel and all it’s facilities with hundreds of other people – you eat with them, you socialise with them, you relax with them, you swim with them.

New Year Breaks for Large Groups

Well, that was a scorcher of summer, but it looks like we’ve seen the last of it and it’s starting to feel a lot like autumn now; all those country walks to look forward to, blackberry picking, Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night, and if you haven’t got anything planned yet, it’s not too soon to start thinking about Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
