Hen weekends in the countryside are all about getting back to basics – chilling out with the girls in quaint country pubs, pampering and relaxation in grand country spa hotels, long strolls along beautiful landscapes reminiscing about the chapter in her life she is about to close, and enjoying the company of her friends.
We’ve rounded up three of the best hen weekends in the countryside to ensure the bride has a last weekend of pure, relaxing unwedded bliss.
Renting a cottage
Rent a private cottage in the countryside so the hens can enjoy the freedom of having their own space and being surrounded on all sides by the beautiful English countryside. The girls can throw a dinner party for the bride, cosy up by a roaring fire in winter or celebrate with Pimms and a barbecue in summer in the traditional English country garden. Some rental cottages have their own hot tubs or pools, and there is almost always a picturesque village or a lovely traditional pub just a leisurely stroll away.
A country spa hotel
The bride and her hens can be pampered to perfection in a grand old country spa hotel, enjoying luxury treatments, five star rooms and magnificent views of the grounds and surrounding countryside. Picture the hens having a champagne breakfast on the terrace before a leisurely swim or round of golf in the grounds, then retiring inside for a massage before heading down to dinner and cracking open a bottle of wine.
The English coast plays host to some of the most beautiful, untouched sandy beaches in Europe. Take your hen party to a coastal town or village, rent a cottage or a homely bed ad breakfast and spend a weekend relaxing and benefitting from the fresh seaside air. Activities can include sunbathing, surfing, beach barbecues at sunset, treating the girls to a good old fish and chip dinner, taking a cruise, building sandcastles. Need we go on?
