Somerset’s big country house hire company The Big House Co is perfect for house parties, teambuilding, weddings or holidays.

“The house was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Expectations were exceeded and we all wished we could stay longer,” Microsoft says.

“Everything exceeded our expectations; you really have a great product. Rest assured we will definitely be back,” adds Coca Cola.

This much-talked-about organisation has three substantial properties in the grand country house tradition, including Tonedale House in Wellington.

The idea of a weekend or a week away from the everyday world, with friends, family or colleagues taking over the kind of baronial mansion that most people only see when they visit a National Trust house or a stately home of England has become ‘the thing’.

“The whole weekend was like a dream and I hope to return some day . . . it’s far better than staying in a hotel,” says another customer.

“We searched for many weeks to find the perfect venue for our wedding and no-one else could offer the dream you offer,” adds another.A massive 100 per cent of clients would recommend The Big House Co.Questionnaires (representing more than 10,000 guests) gathered over 15 years, have sealed its reputation as one of the best UK house party venues out there. Peter Insall (Big House Partner) says: “We give the client the full confidence they will get what we say we deliver. For 11 years we have consistently delivered - whether it’s for a the fully indulged or the more simple self-catering party - be it wedding (big or small), business, teambuilding or a family and friends house party”

Big House celebrity party guests include James Watt & William Wordsworth (in the 1800s!) but more recently Jamie Theakstone, Clarrisa Wright, Alexander Armstrong, Oswald Boeteng, Mark Owen, Zoe Ball and even some royalty: HRH the Crown Prince of Spain.

In true house party style, all kinds of activity can be laid on for Big House guests, such as clay shooting, horse riding, archery, massage and much, much more.
