Group Self-Catering Accommodation

Here’s the scenario: you and your buddies, say up to 18 of you, want to go away for a few days for a good catch up; you were all at uni together and since then you’ve all grown up, got careers, husbands, children, mortgages, etc. You haven't seen each other for a few years so there's heaps to talk about, and of course you want to have a laugh reminiscing.
