Looking for a big house to hire, somewhere between London and the North of England? Renting a manor house in the Midlands makes perfect sense. If you’re planning a beautiful wedding, or a big family party to celebrate a special anniversary (or birthday!), then hiring an exclusive use property is a great decision.
Or perhaps you’d prefer somewhere with serious walking and hill-sports nearby – you might like the Cliff House, in Derbyshire. The house is in the Peak District National Park, and is very near to the Monsal Trail (great for family cycling).
If you fancied hiring a large party house and playing at being a glamorous socialite (or top model) for the weekend, you could stay in Cornwell Manor in Oxfordshire, home county of the famous Soho Farmhouse, and Daylesford (with its spa and farmshop) is just a hop over the border to neighbouring Gloucestershire, bejewelled county of princes and the Rich Young Things.
The middle of England is easily reached by several motorways, and you could stay in a castle or moated-manor within a few minutes of the M1, M40, M42, M5 or M6. Although our grand houses tend to be in the countryside, they are not out of reach of major cities, such as Birmingham, Coventry or Nottingham.
All of our big houses in the Midlands are run by excellent teams, who can help you arrange your event or break to be exactly as brilliant as you imagined it to be. The houses welcome both parties of friends and family gatherings, and many of them offer a limited number of corporate and wedding dates.
A Word From Edmund
The Midlands is a place of great variety, covering twelve counties, from Leicestershire to Worcestershire to the West Mids and Lincolnshire. Which grows great potatoes. It’s well-serviced with transport links (easy-peasy on the 18:06 from Paddington) and offers great houses to anyone looking for an exclusive-use property; perfect for a weekend break.
