Large country house breaks

Our exclusive collection of large country houses includes luxury manor houses with pools, architect-designed retreats, mansions and private estates.

For a special gathering with six or more overnight guests, you'll need something bigger and better than the usual self-catered country home. To the manor born? Waltz about the grounds of a unique private estate with a tipple in hand, party 'till dawn in a country house with indoor pool and disco ball, or wake up to the gentle tap of croquet on the lawn as the grandparents teach the children how to play.

Alongside traditional country house grandeur, you'll find eclectic bohemian farmhouses and modern architect-designed barns; all properties designed with space and sharing in mind. Set up with logs and kindling so you can get a roaring fire started straight away, there are also hampers full of fresh goodies and bathrooms with soft waffle robes; and cupboards bursting with board games. Now sit back and enjoy that big country house break.
