Holiday Cottage with a Games Room

An open space with endless possibilities

About Games Rooms

Looking for a separate space to enjoy your favourite home entertainment? At mYminibreak, we want to make sure you can enjoy all your favourite games and pastimes while staying with us. That's why we offer long-term stays with games rooms for you to bring your hobbies on holiday with you!

Our spacious games rooms - also known as "recreation rooms" - are blank canvases to fill with whatever you need. This can be anything from a general family chill-out spot, to a place to practice your hobbies in peace, and even a home cinema! A game room is as versatile as your interests and despite the name, isn't limited to just games. If you're seeking inspiration for filling your holiday home's games room, here are some ideas!

Reserve a Games Room for your stay with us!

Entertainment Room: Snooker, table tennis, cards, and more

A good start is a room that features a variety of entertaining pastimes. There's space enough for a pool table, ping pong, or table football, so you can use your games room for fun activities to undertake with friends. Or, hang a dartboard on the wall and aim for that bullseye! Just make sure your game of darts doesn't go over the table tennis competition.

Alternatively, you can bring along a table for less active card games! Gather your pals for a friendly game of poker, blackjack, or any other card game you can fit around the table. With a TV playing in the background or a speaker filling the air with music, your entertainment room will provide a lovely atmosphere to unwind.

There's enough space in our games rooms to fit all kinds of things to photograph. They can also fit a backdrop, so you can get the perfect background for the focus of your camera.

It doesn't matter if you've got a top-of-the-line camera and backdrops, or just your phone and some filters, our rooms are a great place to get the perfect image.

Home Gym: Work up a sweat

A separate room to get some exercise in is a great idea for any fitness buff. In your workout den, you'll have enough space for simple equipment like weights and mats, as well as more complex machines like treadmills and static bikes! Bring the whole exercise routine to your recreation room for a personal gym available every day!

What's more, the games room comes with an en-suite shower, so you can freshen up after working out without even having to leave the room! You can also bring in a small fridge to store a nice refreshing drink and keep it cold so you can cool down while you exercise.

Personal Bar: A self-catering pub!

With your games room, you can try your hand at a little bartending with your own personal minibar! Get some ales on tap, spirits, mixers, and assorted pub snacks, and invite your friends into your quaint little bar. Play some chill background music, or set up the telly and put on some sports to really capture that merry pub atmosphere. And, with an en-suite toilet, your "patrons" won't even have to mess up your cottage should they need to use the bathroom! A mini pub is a fantastic and unique use for a games room.

Wet Room: Store gear after hitting the waves

Situated so close to Hunstanton, our long-term let is an ideal spot for surfers, paddleboarders, kayakers, and more! And of course, you wouldn't want your equipment to drip water into your home after a long day of watersports. That's why having a room to store your wet boards, kayaks, and paddles is a great idea! You can use your games room to store all kinds of equipment and clothes, ready for your next trip out to the water! And to top it off, the attached shower makes for a great place to clean up after a day in the sea.

Mini Library: Shh!

For those that appreciate a quiet atmosphere and a good book, the games room makes for a great mini-library! With a skylight letting plenty natural light into the room and quiet surroundings.

Bring along a comfy chair, a bookshelf, and as many books as you want. You'll have the luxury of choosing between reading outside in the peaceful countryside, or reading inside in a cosy room with the necessary amenities closeby!

Your games room is a fantastic environment for you to get lost in an engaging read! Even better, you'll have the facilities to brew yourself a hot drink while you enjoy your book. Or, a fridge to keep a cool drink closeby if that's more your speed!

Our Games Rooms

What they are, and who they're available to

A games room is a separate room dedicated to hobbies, games, and other casual activities. The term has a variety of different names, including recreation room (or rec room), rumpus room, or ruckus room. 

Many types of rooms come under the banner of a games room, with home cinemas, dens, and man caves being considered as types of games rooms. Our games rooms are offered to people entering into a timeshare with us for more than four weeks as a separate, dedicated area for them to enjoy their hobbies or games in a space separate from the cottage. This space can be used for general entertainment purposes, pursuing hobbies, or other general recreational activities, as fits under the definition of a game room.
