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.
