Everybody loves to celebrate a big family occasion, but what do you do if you can't find a holiday cottage big enough to fit you all in?
It's one of life's modern dilemmas ...
It's grandad's 70th, mum's 50th, eldest son's 21st or daughter's graduation and everybody wants to get together somewhere for a big family celebration.
However, the family is spread out all over the country, so it's easiest to find somewhere central and sort out a holiday cottage.
But hang on a minute, when you get surfing the internet looking for a suitable venue you discover that most cottage websites think 10 people is a lot to accommodate.
What if you've got a big group made up of kids, adults and grandparents, with a few friends thrown in for good measure?
And what if granny and grandad prefer to sleep in a room well away from your teething baby?
