Hen Weekend

Hen Weekends In Your Own Country House

Gather your ladies and head off to The Peak District for a relaxing yet stylish rural hen weekend! Our beautiful properties are the perfect place to hold the finest of hen weekends for that special lady. A fabulous alternative to the ‘traditional’ hen weekend. You can choose one of our luxurious properties for a sophisticated house party that you and your hens will enjoy. Our exclusive venues are a breath of fresh air in the heart of the glorious Peak District Country side. 

You have the freedom to build your own package with lots of unique activities right on your door step – we have tons of ideas and can recommend an abundance of activities both on and off site to suit all budgets and timescales (full/half days or even a couple of hours) Our properties are ideal for private dining, chic afternoon teas at Chatsworth House, cocktail making and long lazy afternoons with BBQ’s and pimms in the gardens. Perhaps you may enjoy visiting the lovely local villages and towns of Ashford in the Water, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Buxton or maybe you have more adventurous activities in mind?

We welcome all hen groups who are looking to spend time together with their favourite people in an amazing countryside setting.
