Last Minute Group Accommodation

Spring is a wonderful time of year to spend a few days or a week away with friends, family and colleagues. If it’s about time you got together to catch up and reconnect check out our last minute group accommodation in the UK. With Blackdown Luxury Lettings you’re guaranteed top notch holiday houses with plenty of space and fantastic features like private pools, hot tubs, games rooms and BBQ lodges.

The skies are blue, the sun is shining and the temperatures are rising – all the right ingredients for a holiday or short break. Check out our last minute group accommodation for special offers on stays at our luxury Devon holiday houses. With prices starting from just £43.75 per person per night it’s remarkably good value – especially when you consider that you’ll have exclusive use of amazing facilities like indoor pools, hot tubs, saunas, games rooms, all-weather Scandi style BBQ lodges and children’s play areas. There’s no sharing anything with people you don’t know, it’s all yours for the whole of your stay. Try finding a half decent hotel where you’ve got all that and we think you’ll be hard pushed!

The other thing is there’s no going down to breakfast and facing a roomful of strangers, no queues and no public areas – at our large group holiday houses it’s all private so it’s like having a world of your own in a glorious location. The West Country is a lovely part of the UK but there’s something extra special about where we are, out in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty – says it all really, doesn’t it? Rolling green hills, wide open fields, immense skies, views that stretch for miles and miles; sometimes it’s so quiet out here all you can hear is the happy twittering of the birds and the breeze gently rustling the treetops. There’s not much traffic either, save for the occasional tractor chugging along the lane, or the postman on his daily rounds. It’s a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the city and the bigger, busier roads.

That’s another bonus with a spring break – the roads are nowhere near as frantic as they are in the peak season. The local attractions are open but there aren’t as many people about so it’s easier to wander round and take it all in – we’ve got some beauties around here too, historic houses, beautiful gardens, quiet market towns, tranquil nature reserves and exciting activities like horse trekking, off roading, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting and bird of prey experiences. If you like the idea of a leisurely country walk you’ll be spoilt for choice because this area has a network of footpaths and trails that take you through a breathtaking landscape and if you plan it well, you can round it off with lunch at a country pub. Just imagine, sitting in a sunny beer garden, a nice cold pint of local beer or cider, and a plateful of wholesome homemade food to tuck into. That’s what its’ all about, moments like those.

Our last minute group accommodation is perfect for all kinds of large group stays. Get the family together – aunts, uncles, grannies and grandads, cousins, make it a time to remember; gather with a group of friends and their children, it’s a wonderful way for the grown-ups to have a good catch up and for the children to get to know each other, play together and make solid friendships. Our luxury large holiday houses are great for corporate stays too, whether it’s hospitality or team building away days. Our large accommodation isn’t made for raucous parties but we don’t mind more refined hen weekends – think afternoon tea on the lawn, pony trekking and spa days with one of our recommended mobile beauty therapists. Likewise we welcome groups of guys who know how to behave themselves, the gentlemanly type who would enjoy a few days in the country – perhaps a golf or cycling break or outdoor pursuits like laser clay shooting and archery.

We can’t tell you how beautiful it is down here in our little corner of the world; the pictures on our website speak for themselves but when you get here it’s even better. It’s a chance to really unwind, to leave all your worries behind and just be in the moment enjoying the company of friends and family. There will be happy times, fun and laughter, catching up, swapping stories and when it’s time to go home you’ll have a big stash of very happy memories.
