Are you looking for a luxury family-friendly holiday cottage? 

A family home for more than 400 years, Cossington Park is the perfect place to create a family holiday which will give you enough memories to last a lifetime.

Park House

Downstairs at Park House there are several cosy living and dining areas for all the family to sit together and chat, and lots of quiet corners to escape and relax away from it all.

The Library Dining Room seats up to 30 so is perfect for a sit-down dinner for even the largest family group.  There’s also plenty of space in the Old Kitchen and Breakfast Room for more informal dining.

There is a selection of board games for everyone to enjoy, as well as several sky-enabled TVs and a Wii Console for interactive games. Not to mention around 5000 books!

Upstairs there are 6 large, comfy bedrooms with lots of flexible sleeping options for children and babies.


Park Cottage

The family holiday cottage has a super social open plan kitchen/living and dining space. With bifold doors opening onto a beautiful walled garden area, the children and dogs alike can play to their heart’s content in full view, whilst Mum and Dad enjoy relaxing.

The cottage and private garden area are all on one level so perfect for those with restricted mobility. There’s a fully accessible bedroom and wet room downstairs, and two further cosy bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs.

Family holiday activities

More energetic families will love the range of activities on offer.

Pool, ping pong, and darts can be enjoyed in the Games Room.

Football fanatics will love the football field, which is also perfect for a game of cricket or rounders!

There’s a badminton court to be enjoyed, and the main lawn is perfect for a game of croquet, Giant Jenga or Kubb.

Smaller children will love the dedicated play area with a playhouse, swing, and slide. With 22 acres to explore, there’s also more than enough space for hide-and-seek and treasure hunts.

For the less energetic, there are plenty of quiet corners to sit down and read a book, watch the wildlife, or just doze in the sunshine.

When you can bring yourself to leave the grounds, there are also plenty of fantastic days out nearby.

Special family celebrations

Cossington Park is the perfect venue for your special family celebration.  The estate provides everything you need to make your celebration extra special, and for all ages to enjoy a fabulous holiday.

The brilliantly equipped self-catering kitchens have everything you need to cook a celebratory dinner. Or you can arrange for one of our fantastic caters to come and prepare a special meal for the occasion.

If you’re looking for special activities, you can arrange for everything from murder mystery evenings to archery or falconry in the grounds.

Equipment for children and babies

We can provide travel cots, stair gates, high chairs, baby monitors, and other equipment for children and babies. Just let us know what you need when you book.

Four-legged family members

We appreciate that your dogs are also members of the family! Cossington Park is dog-friendly and your family dogs will enjoy their stay with us as much as you will.

Why is Cossington Park perfect for your family holiday?

Here’s what just a few of our guests say.

“The kids in our family love coming here because they never run out of places to explore. The house seems to go on and on, but they spent most of their time out in the expansive grounds playing on the croquet lawn, the badminton court, the play area, the table tennis room or just playing hide and seek in the orchard.”

“The main house is simply lovely, with a range of hospitable living rooms, a marvellous and outstandingly well-equipped kitchen, scullery, laundry and enough TVs, DVDs, books etc to satisfy even the most exacting of people.”

“Cossington Park Cottage is a beautiful and extremely comfortable home-from-home set in stunning grounds. Our dog loved the gardens and fields, and the children spent hours in the games room and on the badminton court. The very generous welcome baskets (for humans AND dog) were a lovely touch.”

“Cossington Park is a wonderful country venue for a large family party like ours. Everything we needed and more was provided for us – all we had to do was turn up, unpack, and settle into one of the cosy sofas! Thank you – we couldn’t have found a better venue for our family celebrations.”

“This was a joint 70th birthday celebration for my wife and I. Shared with all my children and grandchildren. It really could not have been better.

We were blessed with good weather which helped. The wonderful Kate Hunt provided canapes on the lawn and a fabulous meal to follow on the Saturday night.

But best of all was the space and warmth which the house and cottage provided to share a special time.

This house needs people to hug and gives it back in spades. We really didn’t want to go home.”
