Renting a holiday house for a Hen party
Find the perfect venue - accommodation and location for a Hen party
Hen party weekends (or hen weeks!) are increasingly popular and finding the right venue is vital so that your weekend of fun is perfect. Going overseas to a hotel in a European city used to be a very popular option but if you only have a weekend to spend with your girlfriends before your big day then do you really want to spend hours getting to and from an airport, risk flight delays, strikes, volcanic ash etc etc? Why not rent a self-catering cottage for your hen party so you can maximise the time you have together, without compromising on quality and fun!
A self-catering cottage or holiday home is ideal for a hen party as you will have the freedom to organise things exactly as you want: a particular theme, an all-night party, bracing walks, a beauty therapist to visit or any number of other ideas and plans can be catered for. Cottages with hot tubs are very popular for hen parties as nothing beats sipping a glass of champagne in the open-air with a group of great girlfriends and amazing scenery. You might like to chose a cottage near a Michelin starred restaurant or in a village with a gastro-pub so you can have amazing meals out - or alternatively you could organise for caterers to come to you to provide all the meals so you don't have to lift a finger!
Many large houses suitable for hen parties can provide staff too. Or for a cheaper and more informal option why not buy all the food in advance ready-made and just pop it in the oven and relax.
A hen weekend in the UK could be in a new city with shopping, vibrant nightlife and great clubs, or you might prefer a country cottage with roaring log fires and all mod-cons so you can just catch up with your friends. Lots of hen party hideaways are located near spas where you can go for a luxury afternoon of pampering - or arrange for in-house treatments in your own hen accommodation - ofter very good value to get a therapist to come to you if you are a group. Alternatively you could give each other beauty treatments and giggle about how you last did that when you were teenagers!
Luxury holiday cottages and houses for hen parties frequently have amazing power showers, wifi, state of the art TVs (perfect for showing embarrassing films of the bride to be!), and good sound systems (don't forget to bring CDs in case those provided are not to your taste). Of course self-catering houses suitable for hen weekends are also suitable for stag weekends too! If you want an adrenalin rush then there is sure to be something suitable within easy distance of the property - paint balling, shooting, quad biking, abseiling, surfing, white-water rafting, mountain biking to name but a few. Whatever sort of hen party you want, you are sure to be able to plan the perfect time in a self-catering cottage for a hen weekend.
