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.

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.

80th Birthday party

We hired Hamps Hall and Barn for a week, for four generations of a family. It suited us perfectly, including one member of our party in a wheelchair. Staff were great to deal with and really wanted to make sure we were happy with all aspects of our stay. Communal areas fantastic, well equipped kitchens and all bedrooms very nice. (Some quieter than others, so bear this in mind when deciding on rooms). Beautiful location and lovely outdoor space. Lots to do in the area. We are already planning another Party House stay.

Fabulous stay. Good facilities.

A friend hired this for her 50th birthday celebrations. What a super place. Spacious, very well equipped kitchen, quiet location. There is a pub within walking distance or a short drive (The Ship Inn) which is very good. There are a number of great walks nearby too.
