Big cottages and grand country houses offer spacious and well-equipped holiday homes perfect for extended family or dual family holidays. Large cottages are also popular for big groups of friends seeking spacious self-catering accommodation with lots of bedrooms in which to celebrate a special occasion such as birthdays, anniversaries, stag and hen parties and re-unions. Large cottages come in all shapes and sizes but beginning with at least 4 bedrooms and usually more. They can be castles, historic Manor houses, farmhouses, barn conversions, windmills, contemporary beach homes or big town houses, all able to accommodate many guests.

Use our search criteria to fine-tune your search to find the perfect large holiday home UK to rent for your needs, whether it is in the Kent countryside, by a beach in Cornwall or a remote corner of the Highlands of Scotland.

Book through an Agency or an Independent Owner. Booking a large independently managed holiday cottage directly with the owner makes it possible to obtain all the information you need to make life a little easier, whether arranging to have your grocery order delivered in advance through a local supermarket, or recommending a suitable caterer to prepare a special dinner for your sizable party. Agencies on the other had tend to be a good choice where guests can pay their share of the rent directly, rather than one person having to collect all the money themselves.

Large holiday cottages with plenty of bedrooms will often display floor plans on their websites (there's a link to each cottage's own website on their listing). This makes it much easier to work out the sleeping accommodation before you book. Don't forget to ensure there are sufficient en-suite bathrooms for everybody. Large holiday houses also tend to be very well equipped to ensure the needs for all guests are provided for. The larger the property, the more likely it is to have additional facilities not found in smaller properties such as satellite TV, hot tubs, a games barn and swimming pools. If you are interested in renting a big house listed here and want to know more - just click the link to its website, send them an e-mail enquiry or pick up the phone and get an immediate answer from the owner or agency. Try to book ahead as far as possible, especially for summer and Christmas/New Year bookings when demand for large holiday cottage is at its peak.
