Big Houses to Rent


Here at Landed Houses, we love big houses; grand houses with ball rooms, castle-like houses, Georgian manor houses, country farmhouses – all different types of house, as long as they’re big (and available for exclusive-use hire. Because, you know…that could be awkward.).

If you’re looking for a beautiful big house in the UK, then you’re in the right place. Houses don’t come much bigger, nor more beautiful. Read More

We have big houses for hire in Scotland, Wales and the length and breadth of England. Each of our houses are privately owned and all are completely individual, with their own histories and well-kept secrets. They are mostly set in country estates or private gardens (blissfully neighbour-free), although we do have one big house in central London (The Old London Townhouse, near the Imperial War Museum).

The majority of our houses are over a hundred years old, and built in times when entertaining friends and family (and accommodating staff) were the top priorities of the owners. Great for us, as it means the houses have been designed for large parties. Most of our houses offer dates for weddings and special celebrations (like a milestone birthday), and will often offer space for a marquee (and the odd bouncy castle).

Our houses have a wide range of facilities for distraction, from swimming pools to games rooms (billiards, anyone?) to any number of outdoor activities. The management teams can arrange almost anything you can think of, from shooting to pony-trekking. Even those on the smaller estates offer fantastic walks (usually incorporating a lovely local pub), that allow you to explore the local area.

Big houses don’t have to be expensive to hire, and are quite often cheaper per person, per night, than boutique hotels, or posh B&B’s (assuming the house is full). Discounts for early bookings or if you book further properties on the estates are usually available, and it’s always worth asking.

A Word From Edmund

The sort of big houses I like are those with a boot room to leave the dog, a sitting room with a roaring fire for afternoon tea. Then maybe a library for a gin, somewhere panelled and generous in which to eat dinner, then a drawing room for brandy and silly games. I do like staying in hotels, but you can’t beat a private house, for the freedom to do exactly what you and your guests might wish to do, when you wish to do it.
