The Most Sophisticated Hen Party Ideas

If the thought of stereotypical hen weekends makes you shiver, let us find you a much classier alternative with our sophisticated hen party ideas. We don’t want you to get yourself into a mess with the misconceptions that all ‘hen do’ ideas have to be tacky and tasteless, so think of them more as a swan party!

We have several ideas for you that are refined, stylish and memorable, from a beauty session in a private snug for some girly pampering, to exciting cookery courses where you and your friends can experiment in the kitchen. But if you’d prefer to do the tasting, we have a huge selection of foodie breaks where you can book a room exclusively for private dining.

Northcote Cookery Courses

We realise that not every hen wants a weekend of pampering, so we can arrange activity hotel breaks for those who fancy something a bit more challenging, including surfing, kayaking or horse riding. Or how about taking the girls to a vintage festival where you can dress up in fabulous clothes from the 40s, 50s and 60s?

For any brides-to-be who have a weakness for shopping, why not book a city break and combine your favourite pastime of browsing the boutiques with a sophisticated dinner and champagne? We certainly have the knowledge to point you in the direction of all the best shopping areas.

Whatever you choose to do, we will put together a hen weekend package that will be a momentous occasion to remember.

” I heard about this place from a friend who raved about it, so I thought I would treat the missus to a weekend away. The food was excellent, the staff were polite and the room – well the wife loved it. A decent place to go for a romantic couple of days away.”
