Leader of the Pack

Even with the best intentions, the professorially planned time schedule, you just can’t do it all. You’ve got all your friends to help you, so make sure they know their duty’s well in advance. E.G. who’s responsible for the champagne, wine, breakfast, aspirin etc. And double-check they’ve got it all under control 2 days before your weekend begins.



Bedroom antics 

The early hen gets the best room, the earlier you arrive at the property location the sooner you can claim the best room / bed. But whatever room you end up with you want to know it’s going to be comfortable and that the facilities are in keeping with your own high standards. We would always recommend that if you have any concerns about being away then be prepared, and that means by bringing your favourite pillow, your hang over hoodie and your favourite snuggle blanket. We all have one.

Prepare for breakfast & pack the paracetamol

You are not going to get room service or breakfast when you take on self-catering accommodation, so make sure you’ve got enough rescue supplies to get you going first thing in the morning. For some that means toast, for others coca cola, for others coffee and a Resolve. Just make sure you’ve got this covered and the mornings will be a lot more manageable.



Prepare to party

Make sure you’ve enough champagne, wine and water. think of refreshments in 3 parts, the night, the morning and the days. Better to have slightly too much then nowhere near enough.

Wining & dining

Don’t forget the food. breakfast is mentioned above but what are you going to do for lunch and dinner. Are you going to cook yourself, order in? Where will you get supplies? Are you going to eat out? Is it possible for you to get caterers in? remember failing to plan is planning to fail, you don’t want a hungry mutiny on your hands! And besides the bride-to-be will want to enjoy a memorable hen night dinner for all the right reasons with her girls. Upon your request we can provide a list of supermarkets that will deliver direct to your houses.


Always take the Weather with you

In this glorious country of ours the weather often like a stalking ex, catches us by surprise. It may be hotter the Prada fakes is colder the boss’s wife, either way we can’t be responsible for the weather and we won’t be able to tell nor will we be able to do anything about it on the weekends.

Play time

How are you going to fill your time? what have you got planned? Set yourself up a schedule to get the most out of your weekend and you will. Forget to plan to do anything and there is potential to under-cook what should be an unforgettable weekend. Just let us know and we can help. We have various activities, take a look at our activity list to find out more.

Behaviour & Responsibilities

Obviously good behaviour is expected and we’re sure by booking with Big Weekend you’re interested in having a quality time. Therefore you need to be aware you’re fully responsible for your property and the immediate environment, for example you’ll have to pay for any additional cleaning required or the repair of any damage caused. plus, if you damage the property beyond immediate repair there will be extra financial implications due to loss of business etc. Please also respect house rules e.g. no smoking, keeping outside noise to a minimum, etc. So to make certain you don’t get unfairly saddled with expenses that are not down to you make sure everyone is well aware of their responsibilities. In conclusion in the event that any issues do occur always own up straight away, therefore making the problem sorted in a quick timely matter that will have the least cost to all involved. And as a last word please be courteous to your hosts and the local population. if you’re not you’ll only mess things up for other groups and this is not fair.
