We have found that roughly speaking 50% of our bookings are couples and 50% are families. Can you create another listing with availability for just one bedroom with couples pricing? This may help you augment bookings in the slow season. You can block dates for peak periods where you prefer to book to groups only. Be sure to lock off extra bedrooms or you could find this is more work than you bargained for. If you have instant book on for groups be sure it is off for the single bedroom option.

Looks great so no problem with photos or description. However the size of the property may be an issue. For 1 person taking the property you charge £327 per night. A good 5* hotel is less than that.
Would it work to have a lower entry point - eg: 2 guests £250, plus x per person afterr the first two. That would mean you open the property for smaller groups too. But all depends on the pricing in your area.

Many thanks to everyone who provided feedback! I may try a posting with a smaller home size, if the house would otherwise be vacant, although I still need the higher rent to cover the fixed costs. I do think that all of the extra views on the listing helped me secure an additional booking! So thank you!

I think your listing sounds great and your pictures are very good-no need for professional pics. I think demand for such a large house is low or maybe the price is a bit high but I'm nit familiar with your area. Good luck!
