Weekend Escapes

Not that I’m a dirty stop-out (well, maybe), but I’ve organised a good few parties in my time, including a big birthday-stay for my husband’s 40th and it took hours searching out the right gaff for 20 of our nearest and dearest and their kids. So exciting news: I’ve just found out about The Big Domain and knowing how you lot are party people too, I’m keen to pass on the gen. Their thing is BIG luxury properties that sleep eight and above, including gargantuan mansions with space for fifty (my kind of partaaay!)

The team, who have over 30 years experience in the travel biz, have curated over 750 unique plus-size properties on their books, including dreamy destinations where you could get ideas seriously above your station: fairytale castles and gorgeous country piles, ski chalets, and overseas chateaux and villas in France, Spain and Italy. Take a look at their curated pick in Devon – they clearly know their stuff.

Their take is that once you’re all there gathered under one roof (or two for the gran) you’ll be focussing on each other rather than spending time away from the property, so the emphasis is on quality. So, whether you’re planning a 21st, a golden wedding anniversary, a hen do or a big family knees-up, you can refine your search to find a place with a pool, cinema room, tennis courts and games rooms, even a golf course – or how about a hot tub for nine? I’m liking the the look of one pad that comes with a moat and rowing boat. Check ’em out, party princess!
