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 want 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 of 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 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.

Waterworld 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.

Lovely Toft Hall

Toft Hall was the perfect place for us to celebrate our friend’s hen party. We couldn’t have asked for better! The location was great, comfortable, cosy, beautiful interiors, nice garden and there were separate games, music, and quiet rooms. There was a dining area for all of us and 2 fully-equipped kitchens. We found our chef service from the Party Houses website and also booked Dandelion Events so we never had to leave the property. We were a bit worried that the Tesco delivery wouldn’t be able to find us because of the confusing location, but we faced absolutely no problem!

Fun stay at Hamps Barn

We visited Hamps Barn for a hen party and were very impressed. The facilities were excellent and the pictures do not do the bedrooms justice. We had caterers organised and had a fantastic stay.

Hen Party at Merrymeet

15 of us stayed at Merrymeet for a hen weekend. This was just the perfect group size for the number of bedrooms and bathrooms! There was a games room which was very fun and perfect for prosecco pong! The kitchen had everything we needed and we also had local food and drinks delivered to us all weekend long. We had lots of activities planned in the local area and we would recommend visiting the Red Lion Pub which is only a 10-minute walk. It is also very close to Alton Towers! We had a nice time!

Excellent stay at Roaches Hall

We had a lovely experience with Party Houses and we would definitely book through them again. We were 28 people who visited Roaches Hall for a work event weekend including my dog and a toddler. I found that the common area was spacious, unlike many other big houses I have stayed at. The outdoor area was beautiful and the stunning views started right from our door. We cooked all of the nights because the kitchen was very well-equipped with everything we needed. Another coffee machine would be a great add on though as I did find myself standing in queues for coffee!

Fantastic stay at Merrymeet

Had a wonderful get-together with my family at Merrymeet. The facility was great, and we loved the location with the Peak District National Park at our doorstep. We were entertained all throughout because there was lots of things to do and walking routes. Would strongly recommend!
