Fancy a Saltburn big group break? Here’s six amazing rentals!


Love it or loathe it, one thing we can all agree on is that Saltburn house is spectacular. The film’s Catton family seat is Grade I-listed Drayton House IRL and has 127 rooms. Sadly, it isn’t available to hire for your own weekend of debauched dancing to Murder on the Dance Floor, but if you do fancy recreating Oliver’s party (or a more low-key wellbeing escape), why not share the cost with friends? Hiring a mansion’s cheaper than you think…

      With enough room to swing, err (if you know you know), Tall Trees is giving us all the country Georgian manor house feels. Boasting 10 bedrooms and sleeping up to 30 people, you could have a seriously decadent time here beneath its crystal chandeliers, taking a dip in the indoor pool, jumping in the hot tub, dining in the high-ceilinged reception rooms and exploring the landscaped grounds.

      And what about wellbeing? There’s high tech gym and heated pool in the sun-filled orangery.

      And what about wellbeing? Windswept walks straight from the front door.
