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 in different areas around the UK. Look at our Party Houses to rent in the Midlands and the Peak district, Wales, South West or South East. Or if you wan to be inspired, take a look at the entire selection of our Party Houses.

As taking the kids on holiday can be joyful, but sometimes just a little bit stressful., we at Party Houses, have a number little touches to help you enjoy great family friendly accommodation.

If you’re staying in the Midlands and the Peak District, 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.

Ideally situated, cannot fault it!

We hired Chels and Toft Barns for a colleagues retirement party for a weekend. The surroundings are perfect, situated on the edge of the Peak District with so much on offer it’s more a case of narrowing it down to fit it all in. With so much space, the rooms are only used for sleeping in, the living rooms are well equipped and comfortable and a huge dining room enabled The Dinner Party Company to cook us all a terrific meal on Saturday night (also extremely highly rated – well priced and superb food) so we could celebrate together in private.
The Royal Oak pub was also very welcoming and gave some a lift home – there’s service.

Stag party at Merrymeet

Just a note to say thank you to party houses for helping me find a great venue for our stag party. Everyone had a brilliant weekend and the merrymeet was an excellent house – perfect location and setup for us. Great kitchen facilities for a large group, big living room which we used for a disco, fantastic games room for table tennis and table football. All bedrooms were good and there were plenty of bathrooms for a group of 15.

Amazing stay

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.

Wonderful stay

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!
