 About us

The team at the Big House Co possess many years’ of experience in hospitality and pride themselves on the level of service provided and their great attention to detail.

The business was founded in 1996 by Ben and Victoria Fox who were subsequently joined by Peter and Caroline Insall in 2002. Anthony Chapman our new General Manager joined us this year. Together they own and manage two properties and have been successfully representing other like-minded owners since 1998. There are currently 10 houses offered on our website.

Our MissionSM pool

Our aim is to enhance a client’s stay with great service; great local food; luxury five star surroundings; and fun activities around the grounds at our large houses. The Big House Co aims to offer an individual service leaving guests with fantastic and long lasting memories to treasure.

Home 9Our Methods

 We are a small team dedicated to the enjoyment of our clients (both home owners and guests). We deliver a very bespoke and proactive service to Home Owners and our guests  which includes answering queries promptly, making great suggestions to enhance their stay and following up diligently on all requests. We offer friendly advice and rely on other owners to follow this ethos too. We can also offer a consultancy service for owners on how to set up their houses for success.

 The Future

We would like to increase our portfolio to only 20 big houses over the next 3 years. We feel this would give our clients more scope to stay in different locations and enjoy the unique benefits each house has to offer, all safe in the knowledge that the Big House Co standards are in place.
