A Bit About Us

A family company created by John and Lizzie Hammond nearly a decade and a half ago, Big House Holidays is now a thriving holiday letting company with three directors and a dedicated team of bubbly and enthusiastic staff.  

Big House Holidays and Suffolk Cottage Holidays (its sister company) share a high profile shop in the centre of Aldeburgh - open 7 days a week - and offices in Woodbridge. We have retained the vast majority of our original portfolio of properties and owners and now manage over 200 letting properties in East Anglia and across Europe as a result of satisfied owners expand their portfolio of properties or recommend us to their friends and family.

Our continued success is, in large part, a result of our determination to offer quality properties in attractive locations, always making every effort to describe properties as they really are and directing holidaymakers to the property and location to best suit their particular interests, aspirations and budget. As a consequence, we now have an extensive database of holidaymakers who book regularly through Big House Holidays and Suffolk Cottage Holidays.

Growth is continually matched both by investment and technical development. Our excellent team of specialist staff, all of whom share an outstanding love and knowledge of the properties and their locations, work hard to ensure that our reputation for conscientious and individual service to owners and holidaymakers is rigorously maintained.

Our websites including and are now the best in the industry, offering a wealth of information on each of its properties as well as providing up to the minute availability and the opportunity for holidaymakers to book and pay online at any time of the day or night, a first for a local company and something which many national companies do not offer.

High profile targeted advertising and excellent editorial coverage in the national and international media combined with a family of complementary websites including, a magazine style website with information and editorial about shopping, eating and places of interest for Suffolk visitors, ensures that every Big House Holiday property has maximum media and internet exposure.
