Here are a few suggestions for large holiday homes in the UK that you can check out the next time you're going away.
Beachside large holiday homes for house partying
So you find yourself longing for the feel of the sand between your toes, the salty smell of sea breeze and the warmth of coastal sun on your skin. In that case, you can gather your family or round up your best mates and head to a large home by the beach. A self-catered beachside property is excellent for large group holidays like this. You can stock up on food and drinks and not run a huge restaurant bill or bar tab. You've got enough space to play around indoors and outdoors. And if the holiday rental has its own private beach, you can do almost anything you want – like sunbathe in the nude or have a midnight bonfire – without bothering anyone.

Spooky large holiday houses for horror fans
Do you belong to a group of paranormal fans? Or do you just consider yourselves plucky enough to think that you'll survive a night in a haunted house?

You can spend the night listening for creepy creaking or unearthly moaning, or maybe creeping about the house yourself in an attempt to catch a glimpse of something spectral. Even if the house you've chosen to stay at isn't really inhabited by a supernatural presence, it could be close to a site or landmark reported to be haunted; you can satisfy your paranormal cravings there. There are also places in the UK whose landscapes have an otherworldly appeal and make you feel like you're in the scene of a horror film while you're there.
