Large holiday homes in the UKThere will be times when you need to find a four-bedroom farmhouse – pronto. Ok, so you might not have that many children to fill it, if any, but what if it’s your turn to organise an extended-family getaway or reunion; take the helm of a team-building weekend for work? Whatever the event, renting a large self-catering property in the UK can provide a great setting for breaks away: board games by the fire; dinners in the communal kitchen; days spent sunning yourselves in the garden – going large on a getaway has its benefits.

With thousands of HomeAway rentals sleeping up to 12 people and more, there’s lots of choice when it comes to large UK holiday homes.

All you need to do is start planning.

Large holiday homes in Scotland Large holiday homes in Scotland

Welcome to bonny Scotland, known for its dramatic landscapes, unique culture, passionate people – and apparently, large holiday homes. From converted churches to cottages in National Parks, Scottish rentals come in all shapes, sizes and styles, reaching from the Gothic architecture of Edinburgh to the glittering banks of Loch Ness. How about taking 14 friends to a Baronial manner with its own private grounds? With a sauna, Jacuzzi and gym, set on the seaside in Onich, I know I would.

Large holiday homes in England Large holiday homes in England

From London to York, the Cotswolds to Cumbria, England is littered with a trove of large holiday homes. In Devon, discover the delights of Dartmoor while horseriding or hiking as a group; in Northumberland, take the family to learn about the history of Hadrian’s Wall. Travelling with friends? A city break in Newcastle could be as great as a weekend in the Yorkshire Dales. In truth, there are too many holiday homes listed by HomeAway to do them justice – but this Victorian apartment in Kensington that sleeps eight speaks for itself.

Large holiday homes in Wales Large holiday homes in Wales

Wales is undisputedly lovely: the sight of its gently bubbling bays and quaint rural towns is only rivalled by that of its towering mountains and tree-covered valleys. And if you’re on the hunt for a large Welsh holiday home, nothing competes with the Old Rectory – after all, 11 bedrooms ought to do the trick. A romantic retreat in the mountains of Pembrokeshire, it offers coastal walks, historic sites and a breathtaking bay nearby; inside, you’ll find an ingle fireplace and luxury finishes.

Large holiday homes in Northern Ireland Large holiday homes in Northern Ireland

When it comes to large Northern Irish holiday homes, HomeAway doesn’t boast hundreds – but what it lacks in number it more than makes up for in magic. Set just a stone’s throw from Ballycastle, ten miles from the Giant’s Causeway, this large self-catering cottage is a dream getaway for groups. With seven bedrooms, there’s no shortage of space, but if tensions do run high (come on – we’re not that idealistic!) there’s a children’s playground for grumpy kids, a golf course for grumpy parents, and a host of other attractions for grumps of all ages nearby.
