Cottages With A Pool Table and Hot Tub

Cottages with a pool table and hot tub tick a lot of boxes when it comes to large group holidays in the UK. We all know how unreliable the British climate is, so if you’re looking to book a big family break, a reunion or celebration with friends, a hen weekend, or a self-catering corporate stay, finding a holiday house with something to keep everyone amused is important, you’ve got to have those rainy days covered. That’s why here at Group Stays we’ve carefully selected our big holiday houses and cottages to cater for all ages year round.

Large Group Accommodation UK

Large group accommodation in the UK has never been in such high demand; it seems that more and more people are choosing to take holidays for groups of 10 or more on our home soil. It may have a lot to do with the political and economic uncertainty, or it may just be that actually, organising a group holiday abroad is hard work – making sure everyone’s got passports, the hassle of packing to customs regulations, keeping younger children amused on a long journey, etc. It’s so much easier to just get in your cars and drive somewhere in the UK. You can take your time, stop when you want, play what music you like in the car – as loud as you like!
