If you’re considering a mass get together with friends and / or family, then look no further than One Off Places.  We have hundreds of properties on our website which can accommodate large groups, many of which are in the UK.  What better way to celebrate a 40th birthday, a silver wedding anniversary, or a long overdue meeting of cousins, than to book a big house for a long weekend.  Here are three possibilities – if these aren’t to suit, then you’ll find many more on our website.

Stormy Castle, Rhossili Bay, Gower Peninsula, Wales (sleeps 14)

Behind you is undulating green countryside and in front of you sweeping views of Rhossili Bay.  A ten minute walk straight along the footpath to Rhossili Bay’s three miles of sandy beach.  Sleeps up to 14 people in six bedrooms.  Go inland a bit and you can go horse riding, visit cultural attractions, play golf at the beautiful Fairwood Park, and learn bushcraft techniques. On the beach you could try kite surfing or kite flying.  Off shore you can go boating or try your hand at kayaking, surfing, or paragliding.

From £1400 – £1900 per week.  Short stays also available.
