Smaller Holiday Homes & Cottages

Smaller Holiday Homes

Enjoying the company of a close-knit group of people who mean a lot to you is surely one of the most pleasurable ways to spend your leisure time, especially if you rent a luxury smaller property to house your party.

If you’re planning a UK holiday or other special occasion with your partner or several relatives, friends or colleagues, you’ll love our carefully selected range of luxury smaller properties designed for between two and about a dozen guests. The properties are also ideal when you want to enjoy well-deserved time by yourself. What’s more, a number of them have facilities especially for children. Whether you’re looking for an elegant house, chic cottage or lovely mews dwelling, you’re bound to find one of our smaller properties that appeals.

Perhaps you’re keen to relax by the sea, be charmed by a pretty village or explore an historic city, such as Edinburgh or York. You could celebrate your engagement or anniversary with a romantic trip. Smaller holiday homes make ideal venues for intimate dinner parties and pampering sessions. They’re wonderful places to put your feet up after a shopping spree or afternoon devoted to cultural activities.

At House Parties, we’ve scoured the UK in search of the very best luxury rental properties for small groups. That means you can enjoy superior group accommodation near many of the nation’s finest attractions. Nothing beats the magic of a beautiful holiday home in a stunning location. That’s why our range of luxury smaller properties is a fantastic alternative to hotels and B&Bs. The properties you find on our website are all stylish and luxurious. They’re cosy, not cramped, intimate, not impersonal.

Immaculately presented rooms, gorgeous gardens, private parking, Sky TV and free Wi-Fi are just some of the brilliant features available in the smaller properties range. Renting a home-from-home gives you more privacy than is possible in many other forms of group accommodation. You can self-cater or, in some properties, request bespoke catering services. What you do and when is entirely up to you. What’s more, we’re committed to offering fantastic accommodation at fantastic prices.

When you click on a property’s name or photo, you’ll see more details, as well as a gallery of images. You’ll therefore be able to form a clear idea of the property’s style, features and benefits.

This was our third (and definitely won't be our last) stay at the house and as usual everything was excellent. We are five friends who meet up annually and the house is just perfect for us, it is comfortable and spacious and in a great location.
A big "thank-you" to the ladies at "House Parties" who are always very helpful.

Staying in Baille Hill House-York

Outstanding weekend! We were welcomed by Lorraine on arrival, who gave us a tour of the house and showed us how to use all the gadgets etc. House was immaculate and had everything we needed for our hen party. Unfortunately weather wasn’t great for us, however it didn’t stop us using the hot tub! We even had umbrellas provided!!! Top class stay and excited to book again

Staying in Balvonie House-Skelmorlie (Scotland)

What an amazing house! We had booked this for a hen weekend and it did not disappoint.
The house has everything you need with total luxury. Everywhere is decorated to a high standard and clearly well maintained. Plenty living areas to relax and entertain and every bedroom was unique. The view from the house is amazing - if only the weather had been nicer we would have wandered outside. I would recommend this house to anyone with a large party who has a big celebration. It was all very easy to book and we were met on arrival to have a tour of the house and chat about how everything worked. The only thing I would suggest is having a gazebo of some kind over the hot tub so it can be used in all Scottish weather!
