Our Top Escapes That Help You Stick To The ‘Rule of Six’!

Host Writer
Published 15/10/2020 Our Top Escapes That Help You Stick To The ‘Rule of Six’!


OK, so for the time being we can't host mass gatherings, or even socialise with a lovely, laughter-filled group of our friends and family all together. 

But that doesn't mean we can't spirit a few favourite people away for a relaxing, long-awaited - and dare we say rather well-deserved! - escape.

To help ensure you can stick to the current ‘Rule of Six' (in which social gatherings of up to six people are permitted) we've put together a handy list of some of our favourite properties.

And because each one sleeps exactly six guests, you can go ahead and book, guilt-free and safe in the knowledge that you're playing by the rule!
