What is a party house? Why do people use them for?

A party house is a large house where people, groups, organizations, and businesses can host a party or get-together. Some people also use party houses for group gatherings, holidays, hen parties, stag weekends, wedding accommodation, or training venues.

According to Party Houses UK, a website to rent large houses and conference venues in the UK, typical party houses are located in picturesque locations.

Accessible and dog-friendly party houses

Some party houses are easy to get to, while others are dog-friendly. Apart from accepting pets, they are also in locations that are ideal for long walks in the country.

Party house activities

If you are not sure what to do when you get to a party house, most organisers are happy to offer suggestions.

Activities depend on where you are staying and the time of year. A party house, for example, in the stunning peak district, is great for walks, bird watching, and taking pictures.

Ballooning is a popular activity, as is clay-pigeon shooting, archery, climbing, abseiling, and bungee jumping. Perhaps you prefer cycling, off-roading, or mountain biking.

Whatever you are interested in, there is probably a party house where you can do it.

Party House Tofts Estate
The Toft Estate, in the Midlands, has twenty-three bedrooms and can sleep 46 to 48 guests. This corporate meeting venue comprises four properties. There are many options available regarding sleeping arrangements.

Corporate venues

Corporate retreats are a great way to re-connect with your team. They are also ideal for team building, strengthening interpersonal relationships, and fostering a shared corporate vision.

Partyhouse.co.uk/corporates says the following regarding using a party house for business purposes:

“A great business retreat will feel like a nice reward for your employees, and can be ideal for brainstorming innovative ideas and introducing new approaches which will drive your company forward.”

Canary Yacht
Perhaps you prefer a yacht. The Canary Yacht has five bedrooms where ten guests can sleep. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom. It is situated in the heart of London. The yacht’s deck is ideal for a fifty-guest BBQ or a more formal dinner party.

Party house vs. a hotel

There are many reasons why a party house is better as a corporate venue than a hotel.

If you are after team-building, for example, you don’t want other guests listening in or distracting your team members. A party house provides undisturbed privacy for all participants.

With a party house, you rent out the whole venue for your corporate gathering. You will not have to worry about distractions. You will also be able to arrange your corporate event according to your wishes. Even the decorating can be tailored to your requirements.

Rosewood Hall
Rosewood Hall, in the South-West of England, sleeps 26-34 guests in its 11 bedrooms. It is a wonderful option if you seek an elegant corporate retreat. It has a vast dining area where seventy guests can sit comfortably.

Prices vary considerably. How much you will have to pay depends on the time of year, the size of the party house, and where it is.

Weekdays are usually considerably cheaper than weekends. In the UK, for example, business retreats are VAT (value added tax) deductible.
