How we started out

In 2000 we opened a family run bunkbarn in the Brecon Beacons that slept 20. We were struggling to find the right marketing channels for listing the accommodation. So in August 2003 we launched GroupAccommodation.com. Over 17 years later, GroupAccommodation.com continues to thrive and brings together owners of large holiday properties and those wanting to get together with families and friends.

 

What do we do?

We connect owners of properties and their potential guests without a third part intermediary. So no booking fees or commissions to pay. Just pick up the phone or email and speak with the owners direct.

We list over 1,700 holiday properties that are designed with group stays in mind and sleep 10 or more guests. However at this time it may be that some owners will be happy to take smaller groups. Always worth asking.

We have differing property types to suit differing budgets. Choose from renting large houses, groups of cottages, chateaux, hostels, bunkhouses, ski chalets, castles, campuses, bed and breakfasts, glamping sites, large apartments, lodges and cabins, villas, outdoor centres, gites and farmhouses, hotels and even rent a whole village! All our properties are geared up with group stays in mind. Check them out.

The 'sleeps' range that you see on a property page denotes the number of people that can sleep in that property on proper beds. Properties may have additional accommodation on sofa beds or other put up beds.

Finding large group accommodation to suit your needs should be simple and quick. You can create a short list and send an email to them all at the push of a button. The site is easy to navigate, with easy-to-use search refinements to help find a suitable self-catering or catered property as quickly as possible. As simple as that!

On each property page we provide a contact phone number, so please do ring and speak to property owners as well as emailing an enquiry via the 'Contact' form. Talking to the owner will help you to build a relationship and understand how the property is managed. It also gives the property owner the chance to understand your requirements to ensure the visit is a success.

So whether you’re planning a family get-together, getting away with friends, a university reunion, a stag or hen do, we have a property that will suit you.

Have a great time and stay safe.
