Family Friendly Holidays UK

Are you looking for a family friendly holiday in the UK? Do you want to be somewhere where you know your children can play safely while you are relaxing? Party Houses have the perfect solution for you, with our beautiful houses in your own private area of the Peak District. Taking the kids on holiday can be joyful, but sometimes just a little bit stressful.  So, at Party Houses, we have a few little touches to help you enjoy great family friendly accommodation.

There is a lovely (and free of charge) playground for the children at Tittesworth Water, and another at Buxton Pavillion Gradens. Additionally RSPB Coombes Valley Nature Reserve is also local and free. They have Trails, picnic areas and often have children’s events on.  Another free attraction (though a little further away) is the National Memorial Arboretum at Alwras (near Lichfield), which is beautiful in it of itself.

To entertain the children there are TV’s, DVD players, and a variety of children’s books.  Many Party Houses have games rooms with table football or table tennis (more details can be found on the individual house accommodation pages). On top of this our houses are surrounded by picturesque fields to run around and let off some steam, weather permitting of course! For practical purposes we can provide eg baby baths, cots, and small steps so the little ones can reach the bathroom sinks to clean their teeth etc.

There are several other family attractions: Gulliver’s Theme Park at Matlock Bath, over 60 rides complete with Nerf Zone, Dinosaur Kingdom and Spy Zone. The Heights of Abraham also at Matlock – Cable cars, caverns to explore, playgrounds, fossil factory, restaurants, gift shop and fabulous walks and views. Go Ape at Buxton Country Park Different activities for different ages. Go Ape Tree Top Adventure age 10 + years, over 1.4 m tall.  Tree Top Junior aimed at 6 – 12 Year olds over 1m tall.

Waterwolrd flumes and swimming fun in the Potteries on Festival Park. Chatsworth Farmyard and Adventure Playground at Chatsworth House, Bakewell, Derbyshire.  Open generally from Spring through to December there are milking Demonstrations, Farmyard animals, small animal handling,  and trailer rides; plus a great adventure playground and climbing forest. There is also a lot to do locally, for example Alton Towers and Peak Wildlife Park are both within a short drive of your Party House.

“What an amazing house!”

The house is absolutely amazing, huge, comfortable, warm and perfect for parties. I had my 30th there and I couldn’t of wished for a better venue. The kitchen had all utensils and the bedrooms were all really comfortable.

“Fantastic accommodation- with all amenities. Great for a large group and pet friendly ”

We stayed at Hamps Barn to celebrate our daughters 21st. 19 of us plus one dog. Loads of space , dining area can seat about 40 people. Impressive lounge area with wooden floors plus piano! Kitchen well equipped plenty of space to store food drinks ect. We did an online shop with morrisons and got it delivered to the house. Lovely views from the top of the hill and the court yard . Ample parking . Bedrooms lovely and clean and well decorated. There’s also a pub at the bottom of the hill, short walk . I would definitely stay here again .

Fantastic Venue for Big Celebration or Get Together

We hired Hamps Hall and Barn for the weekend to celebrate my 40th Birthday, and everything from start to finish was fantastic. Accommodating up to 40 people, and 18 couples comfortably the venue offers masses of space, and with a dining room to seat 40 you can all gather together as one group, or you there’s plenty of areas for people to go off and have some quiet time, so although we were a large group we never felt on top of each other.

Wonderful Location, wonderful house

We had an amazing time staying at Roaches Hall for a family and friends get together. The location is superb- right under Hens Cloud. Best to arrive in daylight though- blink and you’ll miss the turning!! The house has everything you might need for catering for a large party and the dining room is very spacious and felt very grand.
