    Snacks – Many of the lodges above are in a peaceful rural location and while some have shops onsite or nearby they may not be open when you arrive or stock your favourite snacks. Strawberries, grapes and chocolates are all romantic nibbles you may enjoy. Perhaps even pack something for breakfast the following morning so you don’t need to get up and rush to the shop. 
  • check
    A Garden Party
    You don’t need to be posh to host a fab garden party and as all the locations above have lovely outdoor space it’s the ideal way to spend a sunny afternoon or evening especially as you have the added luxury of a heavenly outdoor hot tub to unwind in.
    Ask everyone to bring some fancy cakes make some sandwiches or savoury snacks plus a few bottles of bubbly and you’re good to go.
    If the party runs on into early evening why not make a big bowl of salad and toss some burgers or steaks onto the BBQ and play some tunes, sitting sipping cocktails, enjoying some games or relaxing on the Jacuzzi makes for a great evening, that won’t cost the earth.

Food and drink on a girls weekend away

Food brings everyone together and a hen party is no different, so the chances are; you and the girls will be going out for a meal during your stay at a hen party hot tub cottage. It’s the ideal opportunity to let your hair down and catch up on all the gossip before a night out.

A good idea is to check everyone’s favourite cuisine before you go it’s no good going for an Indian or Mexican meal if the bride-to-be or half the group don’t like spicy food and a reservation is a must as some restaurants are unable to cater for larger groups.

Luckily all the recommended accommodation above are within driving distance of some excellent restaurants meaning whatever tickles your taste-buds you are sure to find something to suit everyone.

Do your research before you go; while there may be some local pubs nearby if you are looking for a vibrant nightlife you may have to travel a bit further, so it is advisable to book taxis, minibuses, limousines etc well in advance.

Don’t forget the headache tablets for the following morning, just in case of the dreaded hangover! 

Final Thoughts

The perfect hen weekend is a chance to get together with the girls and have some fun before the big day and organisation is key to a successful hen party. Download some fun party games such as Mr and Mrs or drinking games before you go. Make sure you have pens and paper at the ready, take some CD’s or make up an appropriate playlist maybe even borrow someone’s Karaoke machine.

All the properties above are double-glazed and have full central heating meaning they can be enjoyed whatever the weather so pack your winter woollies or bikini’s and have an amazing weekend in some of the prettiest areas of the UK, with the added bonus of a decadent hot tub to sink into whenever you please.

Just imagine a day of activities, pampering or simply relaxing and enjoying the stunning views, a lovely meal and night out then a glass of bubbly together with your best pals in the rejuvenating bubbles. What more could you wish for!
