Why Party Houses?

There is something rather special about having a unique space just for you and your guests. Our exclusive venues will not only provide you with undisturbed privacy, but you’ll also be able to enjoy uniquely designed reception rooms, comfy bedrooms, and a host of entertainment features.

Imagine spending your next family holiday exploring the Peak District National Park, or hosting your wedding on the Jurassic Coast. Our Party Houses are designed to accommodate large groups and offer spacious reception areas and expansive grounds that are perfect for any occasion. Treat your colleagues to an inspiring team-building event, use the reception rooms for your meetings before getting involved in some amusing bonding and team-building activities onsite and in the local area.

Great Quality and Value

Party Houses offer great venues specially designed for large groups to get away together. Whether it’s finding the right venue, activities for you and your loved ones to enjoy together, or inspiring you with quality content on how to organise an unforgettable stay, we’ll be always pleased to speak to you!

All our Party Houses were designed for big groups and with quality and your experience in mind. Whether it’s the cosy bedrooms, big and bright reception rooms, private gardens, or fully equipped kitchens, we have made it our priority to create space for you and your loved ones to create magical memories together.

Party Houses range from Jacobean Halls, to converted barns and cottages, to grand Victorian gentleman’s residences – each unique, and full of character to add a special flavour to your gathering. Yet we ensure that they all come at a great value for our guests.

Wonderful Locations

Most of our Party Houses are situated in lovely rural locations and come with their own private outdoor space. These venues give a perfect opportunity to relax and take a break from the busy city life. If you’re looking for a night out, you’ll be glad to know that we also have venues in various cities.

We started off with incredible venues in the Midlands and the Peak District in the heart of England. Now we have a number of wonderful venues across the UK, offering diversity and comfort, adventure and a home away from home. Make sure to take a look at our venues located in the South East, South WestWales and Scotland.


Furthermore, as we wish to offer you venues that are comfortable and welcoming for everyone, we’re constantly ensuring that our venues are well accessible, as well as suitable for children of all ages. Most of our houses will also welcome your pets so take a look through our selection of Party Houses and find the right place for you and those closest to you. Whether you’re traveling from far away, exploring the stunning landscape of the UK or just want a house that’s conveniently located close to your home, we have the Party House for you!

We also welcome both hen and stag parties! You can check if a venue allows your group type by taking a look at the snippet on the right hand side of the venue page.

All welcome

We strongly believe that you should be able to invite all your chosen guests. Where architecture allows, we build ground floor bedrooms and wet rooms for guests with less mobility. See our section on accessibility for full details of the Party Houses structure.  We can lend you ramps, shower stools or even a Deafguard for those hard of hearing so they can be alerted (via lights and vibration) should the fire alarms go off.  We take health and safety very seriously and for this reason you will find your Party House equipped with fire alarm systems and, in most cases, emergency lighting.

We also welcome your dogs and other pets (although some venues might have a small extra charge to ensure the housekeepers have enough time to ensure no hairs are left behind for future guests).
