England has a history of fine country homes.  Throughout England you can find country and manor houses, often in splendid surroundings. Some of these large English country houses have now been converted to hotel accommodation, some still are owned and used as private residences and others still are owned by organisations such as the National trust and are open to the public to visit. Some of these fabulous historic houses in England are also available to rent for short or longer self catering stays, large country houses are quintessentially English and are a great choice for a self-catering getaway.

It is possible to find country homes in Wales, Ireland and Scotland. However, Scotland is more typically associated with castles and hunting lodges and the same can be said for Wales and Ireland to a large extent. If you are looking for large luxury accommodation, why not check out self-catering castles to rent in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales?

Renting a large house in the country within the UK can often require a considerable budget although it may be more affordable than you think, particularly if you are holidaying as part of a large group.  Most bookings for these big homes tend to be for special occasions such as weddings or for special celebrations where it is often attractive to have use of large reception rooms and also large gardens. Whether you are looking for somewhere special to hold an engagement party, an anniversary celebration or some other special event, hiring a house with the wow factor can help to make an occasion memorable.

If you are looking for somewhere for a special occasion do your research and make sure that the property that you are interested in fully meets your requirements before making a booking. Some allow marquees to be erected in the grounds for example whereas others don’t. Some are able to help advise on which outside caterers to bring in as well and others still have facilities to arrange such matters for you.

If you don’t have your heart set on a large manor or mansion in the country then you may wish to consider renting a town house, castle or even a large farmhouse.
