Alternative Hen Party

at Beautiful Poundon House

Poundon House Exterior Wedding Venue

Hen parties don't have to be all about booze, L plates and male strippers. Fine if that's your thing - and it is plenty of peoples. But increasingly women are looking for an alternative experience. As we all know, yoga weekends generally, are becoming more and more popular and therefore the idea of having one with all your best girlfriends and very definitely jettisoning the shiny sash for a yoga mat, makes perfect sense.

Poundon House is one of our loveliest venues and one which we have always admired. A private family home, it was built at the turn of the century by a follower of Lutyens in the Palladian style and is approached up an avenue of lime trees. The wonderful team there now offer yoga retreats a few times a year. To call them special is an understatement, just read this description of how your day would be:

'Spend your morning in quiet meditation with only birdsong to disturb, an indulgent afternoon soaking in a scented bath or curled up in the library. Then, after a candle-lit dinner, toast your rejuvenating limbs by the Drawing Room's roaring open fire.'

Of course it doesn't have to be a hen weekend; it can be simply a well-being weekend or a pre wedding retreat just for yourself or perhaps mother and daughter time together. Whatever you choose, you will feel rested and refreshed and ready for the wedding.

Sophisticated Hen Parties

if strippergrams aren't your thing...

Sophisticated Hen Parties

Berwick Lodge near Bristol has a much more refined approach to hen parties and we think they look rather lovely. For just £25 per person you have a champagne afternoon tea where you can take your mother and aunties (and then go out later and get very drunk if you so wish!!). Or even better, they have three other options where you get to learn something, as well as hanging out with your best girlfriends in a beautiful tranquil setting. First of all, there is a wedding craft workshop where you can make vintage style creations to add to that personal touch to your special day. We love that idea of getting your hens to do some (fun) work, at the same time as having a great time.

But if that doesn't sound like your bag, then there are two baking packages - The Great Berwick Bake off or the Cupcake experience. Both sound utterly yummy! Berwick Lodge's gorgeous garden is pictured below.... a perfect spot for a glass of champagne and a piece of your own cake!
