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….
We stayed in April at Hamps Hall and barn for a joint stag and hen party. The house was absolutely perfect for what we wanted and everyone had a fabulous time!
The boys were in the barns and the girls in the hall so there was enough separation when we wanted it but we all came together to have a party in the big space in the barn each night and was great having enough room for us all to eat together in the dining room as well.
All the rooms were really nice and beds comfy. The kitchens were well supplied with all the glassware/pots/pans/plates you need to entertain 40 people for a weekend and there were even some new board games when we arrived.
Faultless weekend, can’t recommend enough!
Fabulous location and property, perfect for large parties
We stayed in Toft Hall for a multi generation get together. The house is massive and beautiful, well suited to all ages (we had pensioners and small children) with more than enough space for our 20 guests and 5 dogs. The lovely enclosed garden was well utilised by everyone & we ate outside every night. We also hired a hot tub from a recommended 3rd Party supplier which was great, they dealt directly with the Party Houses team to get in and set it up for our stay, I didn’t have to do anything extra. Every room in the house was well decorated & lovely and clean with everything you’d need.
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!
