Depending on who you ask, the ideal party or family get together can encompass a variety of different things.  Whether you are having a stag party, birthday, an extended family reunion or Christmas with all the grandchildren then LHH is here to help you organise your celebration.

House by the Loch is the perfect location for a group activity holiday. Stag and hen parties are welcome here and with the wide range of things to do nobody will be left out.  Nearby you can hire quad bikes, go for a 4x4 adventure or take the rowing boat out on the loch. A short drive will take you to golf courses or winter sports venues. In the evening the well equipped kitchen makes cooking a breeze and with seating for 19 the dining room will be the focal point of your stay.

Christmas is the time of year to visit Branxholm Park House as from early November the house is decorated in a Victorian Christmas theme so that pre-Christmas celebration can be held in style. The owners live next door and are on hand to assist you during your stay, offering catering, additional housekeeping and child-minding by arrangement. Having a birthday? A beautiful cake can be prepared for you and presented at the table. There are also activities galore from a hot tub, barbecue hut and snooker table to trampolines, swings and computer games to keep young and old amused.

Inver Lodge was formerly a hotel and as such benefits from many features you would not normally find in self-catering accommodation. The kitchen facilities are second to none and the original bar has been retained with authentic bar billiards table and dartboard. With notice the owner can arrange for a keg of beer to be installed in the cellar and ready for you to pull your own pints. The only problem with spending late evenings gathered round the fire in the most comfortable of surroundings is that you may miss out on all the other attractions in the area.

Knockbrex Castle is the perfect venue to hold a romantic wedding, with the Great Hall as a striking focus for the ceremony, and the beautiful grounds providing a superb backdrop for the photographs. With a marquee, weddings of up to 100 guests can be accommodated. Caterers in the area can provide everything from a buffet to a medieval banquet and there are plenty of B&Bs and hotels for additional guests.

For large groups, Acharn Courtyard offers a totally different experience to country house accommodation. This complex has been purposely designed to provide accommodation for large groups that like to enjoy their own private apartments, whilst benefiting from the communal facilities for socialising. There is a spacious and attractive relaxation area, which has been fitted out as a social room with tables, seating, barbecue, electric cooker (oven and hob), wood burning stove, bar and games. Clear the tables away and have a dance or a party, then have the luxury of retiring to your own private cottage just yards away. Tennis, fishing and a playpark on site will keep the young ones amused and four legged family members need not miss out as dogs are welcomed and will enjoy the opportunities for longs walks in the countryside straight from the front door.

Poyntzfield House is a spectacular grade A listed mansion house built in 1757. The perfect contrast to the period charm of the house itself is the newly built indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool which can be used in all weather conditions. The dining room seats 16 and is the perfect focal point for family get-togethers. With 7 bath or shower rooms, a full size snooker table and roaring log fires for a special welcome home you will want to make extended family reunions an annual occurrence.
