Rent a Big House
Rent a Cottage
If a huge mansion isn't your thing, then you could always find yourself an idyllic cottage to stay for a few days instead. Although not as big as country manors, you can find some unbelievably cosy properties on websites like AirBnb. These are more suitable for smaller groups of people.
Although we suffer from some pretty rotten luck when it comes to weather, we have been blessed with some amazing countryside. Although not suitable for everyone, taking a trip to the Highlands, the Peak District, Lake District or a number of different ranges can be an unbelievable experience. Just look at that view!
Rent a Barge
How fun would it be to rent out a boat and sail down one of the British canals, only stopping for food and drink? The answer is, very! If you are lucky enough to live close to a canal, renting a barge with a group of friends is extremely highly recommended. Just make sure you don't fall overboard or even capsize the thing!
