Big Cottages Gloucestershire


Gloucestershire is a great location for group holidays. Often overlooked for more traditional staycation destinations like the Lake District, South East and Cornwall, Gloucestershire has tonnes to offer to groups of friends and relatives who are looking for a good time.

If you’re planning a special occasion or celebratory retreat, or want to treat the family or your friends to a getaway, then why not head to the rolling hills and thick forests of Gloucestershire?

We’ve done the hard work for you so all you need to do is find a property to suit you! Whether it’s a family-friendly farmhouse with a swimming pool, hot tub and games room; a dog-friendly holiday home in a pretty village; or a lodge with an enclosed garden hidden in the woods, there’s something for everyone at Big Cottages.
