Hen Party Venues in the South West

Hen Parties have become the traditional way to celebrate the end of single life but a night out has turned into a weekend or even a week of celebration. Competition to have the biggest, the best and the most outrageous Hen Party seems to be normal now. Trips abroad have become commonplace but why venture that far? Why not have a Hen Party with a difference and stay in one of our beautiful Sleeps12 properties?

The amazing Henfield Barn - perfect for Hen Parties with it's fantastic indoor pool, quirky style and beautiful gardens!

Here are a few of our Top Tips for planning the perfect Hen Party

Organisation

Perfect planning = perfect party!
Organise early and thoroughly. Our advice is do not leave all the planning to one person as it can be quite a stressful task. Why not have a party planning night, get a few pizzas, a few bottles of wine and some beautiful stationary and put your heads together. Delegate roles and responsibilities and make lists. You may want to create them electronically so they can be emailed to the group. Have a calendar and organise subsequent meetings to ensure that everyone sticks to deadlines. 

Sleeps12 can offer more than other companies as they have a Party Planner expert, Emily, who can help advise you on a variety of planning aspects. She has links with activities, guest lists and a range of special offers that are only available to our customers!

Personalisation

Make the Bride-to-be feel really special.

Why not create a special memory book or DVD that she can keep to remind her of this fantastic time in her life? Why not each take a picture or small momento of a special time you have shared and create a montage or poster of your friendship? T shirts are a traditional winner and bond everyone together and as a bonus everyone gets to take home a reminder of their time.

Creativity

Be as creative as possible during your stay.
Organised activities can help the party feel a little more structured and no one feels like they have to find something for everyone to do. 
Popular choices of activity might be Life Drawing with Hens with Pens or sessions lead by The Crafty Hen. Laughter is guaranteed and will make your party extra special.
If you would rather venture out of the property you could always try something new. Clay pigeon shooting, surfing or indoor climbing are all activities local to our properties. Emily has some great rates for these activities so give her a call in the office and see what they are!


Fun

No Hen Party is complete without raucous laughter and a little bit of fun!

You may decide to avoid the queues at the pubs and clubs in town and remain at the property. It doesn't have to be bland and boring though - far from it! We throughly recommend an evening of great food, a few party games, a little bit of fancy dress and then the icing on the cake........

A Butler in the Buff!

Having developed a great realationship with the guys and girls at Butlers in the Buff we have arranged some fantastic offers that are only available to our customers. We know that most Hen Parties love nothing more than being waited on hand and foot by a gorgeous rippling hunk so grab the offers while you can. 


Not only will you find absolute luxury when you book a Sleeps12 property for your Hen Party but you’ll will also have access to some help and guidance before your stay. Please make sure you give Emily a call or email your enquiry and she’ll help you plan a stay you’ll remember for years to come.
