Hurstone House is a lovely place for your hen weekend; it's a gorgeous old farmhouse with plenty of character and the most amazing views. You'll love the entrance - a flight of stone steps takes you to the door, beneath a pillared porch, and there's a terrace running the whole length of the house with the most commanding views out over the lawns to the picturesque countryside beyond - you can literally see for miles and miles. Just imagine you and your fabulous females sitting there in the sunshine, afternoon tea or evening champagne.... At the back of the house is a patio with a big hot tub where you can sit beneath a night sky full of stars and chat til the small hours. The thing with Hurstone House is that it's so homely and cosy, it's great year round - there's nothing quite like an autumn or winter stroll through the fields or along the lanes with your closest friends and heading back for steaming hot chocolate in front of the fire....
