Alternative group options

Just because you're travelling in a smaller group doesn't mean you can't enjoy the luxury and space of a large holiday home or country manor house...

Your group might be the entire rugby team, a couple of couples, or a regular-sized family gathering. Whatever your combined need, you're well looked after when you book a Unique Homestays bolthole as we've sourced locations to suit groups of all shapes and sizes. Homes with alternative group options provide self-catered properties to give everyone the perfect solution, often allowing you to enjoy a space that one of our larger party gatherings might book, at a rate that reflects your smaller party size.

Alternative group options give you and your party additional flexibility when it comes to tracking down the perfect private holiday retreat. From large country houses in the Cotswolds with swimming pools and tennis courts to modern beach houses in rugged Cornwall, our listings give you out-of-season access to exclusive private homes you might otherwise consider out of reach.
