Large houses to rent with plenty of bedrooms will often display floor plans on their websites (there's a link to each cottage's website on their listing). Floor plans make working out the sleeping accommodation much easier before you book. Don't forget to ensure there are good en-suite bathrooms for everybody. Large holiday houses also tend to be very well equipped to ensure the needs of all guests are met. 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 cottage listed here and want to know more - 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.

Large holiday homes can be rented for short or long stays, making them ideal for family vacations or group getaways. They provide a home-away-from-home experience, allowing guests to relax and enjoy their time together in a comfortable and spacious setting. Try to book ahead as far as possible, especially for summer and Christmas/New Year bookings when demand for larger holiday cottages is at its peak.
