Benefits of a stag do house with a games room

Fun and entertainment 

Overall the major draw for choosing a games room is the fun it brings to the stag do. Challenging your friends to a pool match or getting teams together for various games provides hours of laughs and memories. What’s more, you could also add your own twist to a games room tournament with prizes or forfeits for the winners and losers. 

Unique experience 

Want to arrange a stag do with a unique angle? Booking a stag do cottage with a games room is an ideal choice. There are many clichés for this type of event. But if you want to add something different and unexpected, games rooms provide that alternative. 

Place to relax 

While stag dos can be a hive of entertainment and excitement, you also need some downtime to recover from those hangovers. Games rooms provide some welcome relief. Chill out in front of the TV and play games on the console or take your mind off the headache with a round of air hockey. These rooms really do offer the best of both worlds. 

Ideal socialising spot

With busy schedules and friends living in different parts of the country, getting together may be a once-in-a-while event. Booking a stag do house maximises this time together and gives you space to socialise. The addition of a games room also opens the house up to areas for chatting and catching up with mates in a relaxed atmosphere. 

Ideas to make your games room experience memorable  

The beauty of a games room is that you can choose the type of activities you want before you book. Pick a cottage with a pool table if you fancy challenging your friends to a pool tournament. Or maybe your mates are gamers and love nothing better than battling it out to the latest console releases. 

Whatever you like doing for fun, it’s made possible with a games room. Some of the top ideas include:

  • Pool tournament
  • Snooker
  • Air hockey 
  • Darts
  • Team console games
  • Board games
  • Cards (poker, anyone?)
  • Football table tournament
  • Table tennis
  • And, of course, a few drinking games 

Other features perfect for a stag do 

Games rooms aren’t the only great things about choosing a large luxury cottage for your stag do – there are tons of other fun features to complement your stay. Let’s start with the private bar – a must for any stag party. Let the drinks flow and turn up the music in your own exclusive bar. In many cases, these will be situated right by the games room for the ultimate party experience.

If you want a competitive edge for your stag’s time away, why not opt for a stag do house with a tennis court? Several cottages have large private tennis courts to try your hand at one of the UK’s most loved summer sports. Play a tournament with everyone or double up for some rivalry between teams. 

Alternatively, you can take the activities outside in the gardens. Most luxury holiday houses come with ample outdoor space for games like football or rounders – or just relaxing in the sun with a few cold drinks.
