Party party party on holiday… demand for larger self-catering ‘Celebration houses’ goes through the roof…as Mulberry appoints a ‘Head of Celebrations’ to manage guests’ party needs

Leading boutique holiday-let agency, Mulberry Cottages, has launched this summer a ‘Celebrations’ service for its guests who book larger holiday cottages for special occasions.  The service, free to guests, will help organise everything they need to throw a celebration of any size or shape when they are on holiday.

Based on Mulberry’s own booking data, demand for hiring large houses (sleeping 10+) has leapt by 80% since 2014.  Families and friends are increasingly choosing to celebrate together in large houses over a more formal hotel stay, the traditional village hall hire or the DIY garden marquee. Guests are also looking for a helping hand when it comes to arranging celebration events for their loved ones, removing the stress, making it a hassle free experience.

Founder and Director of Mulberry Cottages, Sarah Wood, said: “We’ve had great success over the years sourcing and growing Mulberry’s collection of beautiful large houses, and advising guests which house suited their ‘celebration’ needs best; so the opportunity to expand our service came about quite organically. It’s a joy to know we’re helping customers plan their experiences and remove all the stress that comes with arranging special occasions.

Sarah continued; “When other lettings companies are cutting their levels of service, we’re upping ours in the best way possible. Appointing Emma as Head of Celebrations, to work with our guests to make each of their events memorable, is what Mulberry is all about. Memorable holidays.”

The  responsibility for the delivery of all the essentials for an amazing party will fall on Mulberry’s new ‘Head of Celebrations’, Emma Moir and her team.

Emma will offer a personalised service which will coordinate every last detail of the special celebration, no matter how big or small the request. She can organise caterers to cook up dinner parties for 2 to 92 guests; deliver birthday decorations; suggest themed party activities for adult and children alike or organise activities for the whole group. Emma can source everything from cakes to canapes, clay pigeon shooting afternoons to Japanese cookery classes. There will be no additional cost for the service – only for the experiences themselves.

It’s not only parties that Emma will be opening up her little black party book for… She can also book corporate away stays, team outings and special meetings in Mulberry Cottage locations throughout the UK.

Emma said of her role “This new opportunity came about as the number of customers asking for recommendations has been multiplying in recent months. I’ve been tasked with creating a service that delivers everything our customers would need to make their celebrations go with a swing. A long list of high quality event and party related suppliers have been sourced, both at local and nationwide levels, and I’m now ready for any request thrown at me!”
