Christmas and New Year
How lovely it is to spend Christmas or New Year with those you love.
Book your chosen Party House and everyone can come to you.
Forget about driving around visiting one group of friends or relations on one day, with another trip the following day to the next group!
All Party Houses are decorated with a Christmas tree and we are very happy for you to bring extra decorations if you wish to! Many Party Houses have wood burning stoves (logs are provided free of charge) and they all have lots of space to enjoy yourselves.
There is also so much to do if your party contains a mix of ages and interests. Have a look at some of the local activities on this site.
Obviously all our lovely houses have everything you need when catering for large numbers of guests; from lots of glasses, to dishwashers, to all being able to dine in one room together (and that’s separate from the kitchen so you don’t have to see the cooking chaos whilst you’re eating!).
You just add the love and laughter for a perfect Christmas or New Year break!
Why not try some of these old favourite Party Games (they work so much better when you are with a larger group!) ….Musical chairs; Tinsel limbo dancing; Satsuma and spoon races; Charades; How many sweets are in the jar?
However, Party Houses are particularly popular at this busy time of year, so do try and book early to avoid disappointment….
Had a wonderful stay over at Chels Barn for a 30th birthday in December. I got to experience for the first time the lovely Peak District. Chels Barn was the perfect venue to do this from. The venue was clean and well decorated, and the dining room was huge so we could all sit together comfortably! Would recommend to walk down to the Royal Oak in Rushton for the Sunday lunch. Can’t wait to return to this part of the world!
Hamps Hall & Barn Family Party
Superb Place for a Family get together. Enough rooms for all 40 of us and a great time was had. Staged our own Murder mystery evening in the main Lounge one evening and hired a hot tub, table tennis tournament, pub quiz night. Would recommend and hopefully will try to return.
Fun weekend in the Peak District
The Barn was wonderful, it had everything we needed, it was very warm, two fridges to keep all our drinks chilled, very large kitchen, very comfortable beds, the staff was very helpful in the booking process, couldn’t have asked for more!
Great venue for my 30th birthday party – perfect for sociable types!
I had a great three-night stay at Toft Hall (not in Toft!) for my 30th birthday party weekend. The venue is large, suitably remote and easily accommodates everyone both in terms of sleeping and socialising downstairs. There is more than enough kitchen and storage space for food, drink and cooking, and a huge dining table. Or, if you prefer a pub lunch, two or three pubs in walkable distance.
The master bedroom is by far the largest, with the others – both double and twin – medium sized. Taller people probably shouldn’t sleep on the second floor because of the beautiful, if low-hanging, beams. But full of quirks that give the place the character that make it a lovely destination.
A great family 70th birthday celebration
A family party of 16 ranging in age from 4 to 77 assembled for the week to celebrate a 70th birthday. We loved the cosiness yet with plenty of space, the walled garden where the younger children could play safely, the splendid views and the well appointed kitchen and utility areas where we prepared our evening meals and did our clothes washing. It was also very well situated to explore the Staffordshire Moorlands.
