Have a BIG birthday celebration!


It feels like a bigger occasion if you get all of your friends and family together in one BIG house and celebrate all weekend long.  It’s a memory you’ll never forget and is really worth thinking about – here’s a few ideas of how your birthday weekend might look…

When you arrive at a BIG house for a birthday celebration, it will be all set up for you, fires laid, table set with candles and white linen, bedrooms and bathrooms all immaculate.  The fun of a hotel, with the exclusivity of being lord of the manor for the weekend.


Unlike most of the houses we live in today, there is loads of room for your group to spread out in a big house.  All together chatting beside the fire or breaking off into groups for a table tennis or table football challenge, some of our houses have pools and hot-tubs too which become a real focal point – summer and winter.  The hot-tubs are great as an after-dinner star gazing spot, too.


During the weekend there is a BIG variety of activities that can be arranged for you.  It works well to have an activity as the focus for the day, some are on-site and some away from the houses –  with the excuse perhaps of a visit to the pub on the way back.  Energetic types may like to try go-karting, an assault course, horse riding, or surfing – or if you are looking for something more relaxing then massage, facials or yoga might just fit the bill.


The kitchens at our big houses are all set up for big group catering, so you can create some delicious meals for yourselves and dine in splendour in the large, elegant dining rooms that are all part and parcel of hiring a country house.

If you’re having a big birthday celebration though, it’s really fun to have a chef come to the house and cook a wonderful 3 or 4 course dinner especially for you.  Waitresses will serve your food and wine and you will experience a wonderful meal in the exclusive surroundings of your own party house, with some after dinner dancing thrown in perhaps.


If you want a birthday weekend set in sumptuous surroundings Sussex Manor has plenty of wow factor!  Exclusive gated entrance, long winding driveway, outdoor pool and grass tennis court gives you a flavour of what you arrive to.  Inside, your party will kick off amongst gorgeous interiors, where there is plenty of fun to be had.

Get the music playing through the sound system and chill out on the comfy sofas or on the terrace with a glass of champagne, perhaps.  With all the mod cons in the kitchen you can rustle up a gourmet feast and celebrate your special birthday in style with an extravagant finale in the elegant dining room.

Special birthday memories are easy to make in this beautiful party house in Somerset and if you’re looking for a bigger, BIG house Tone Dale House could fit the bill, sleeping up to 31, in great comfort.  The games room is huge and a real focal point for fun with table tennis, pool table and roulette.  But you might be spoilt for choice because there’s a hot tub too, outside, overlooking the garden and mill leat.

We think a birthday party must include some after dinner dancing and this house has a party room with integrated sound, lighting and air-conditioning system – so you can keep going all night long.  But, first of all, we hope you’ve enjoyed a delicious banquet in one of the two dining rooms – we can arrange a chef to take the strain if you prefer?  Why not, it’s a special celebration after all.
