Book through an Agency or an Independent Owner. Booking a large independently managed holiday cottage directly with the owner makes it possible to obtain all the information you need to make life a little easier, whether arranging to have your grocery order delivered in advance through a local supermarket, or recommending a suitable caterer to prepare a special dinner for your sizable party. Agencies on the other had tend to be a good choice where guests can pay their share of the rent directly, rather than one person having to collect all the money themselves.

Large holiday cottages with plenty of bedrooms will often display floor plans on their websites (there's a link to each cottage's own website on their listing). This makes it much easier to work out the sleeping accommodation before you book. Don't forget to ensure there are sufficient en-suite bathrooms for everybody. Large holiday houses also tend to be very well equipped to ensure the needs for all guests are provided for. The larger the property, the more likely it is to have additional facilities not found in smaller properties such as satellite TV, hot tubs, a games barn and swimming pools. If you are interested in renting a big house listed here and want to know more - just click the link to its website, send them an e-mail enquiry or pick up the phone and get an immediate answer from the owner or agency. Try to book ahead as far as possible, especially for summer and Christmas/New Year bookings when demand for large holiday cottage is at its peak.
