You can't beat a hen weekend in a gorgeous country house and Berry House has it all; a beautiful old Georgian property, it' the perfect self catering large group accommodation, set in private grounds with amazing views of the Exmoor countryside, an awesome indoor heated saltwater pool, and plenty of space inside and out. Take afternoon tea on the terrace or in the drawing room, cook a lazy alfresco lunch on the barbecue or pizza oven, play rounders on the mown field in front of the house.
Maybe you're a second timer looking for something exquisite and sophisticated, in which case Berry House is spot on and we've got all sorts of inspring activities on our Extras page to keep you amused; we've got life drawing, vintage craft workshops, pottery painting and even dance classes like Bollywood, Flamenco and Belly Dancing. We've even got tried and tested professional caterers who can come in and take charge in the kitchen to create a fabulous feast whilst you get dressed up and sip cocktails. You might fancy trying your hand at clay pigeon shooting or archery, which can be arranged on site, or you could plan a walk on the footpaths through woods and fields in the glorious Devon countryisde to finish up at a cosy country pub for lunch. You won't have to go far in the local area to find things like horse riding, historic houses to visit like Hestercombe, Knightshayes and Dunster Castle, or you could take a trip along the tranquil canal at Tiverton on a horse drawn barge. Head on to Exmoor for a stroll along the river at Watersmeet or Tarr Steps and go for a big fat cream tea afterwards, hike to the summit of Dunkery Beacon and take in the far reaching views, then go to Porlock Weir and soak up the peaceful ambience.
If you want to go out to eat you'll find plenty of pubs serving honest home cooked food, like the Rock Inn at Waterrow, the Ashill Inn at Ashill, The Blue Ball at Sampford Moor, or for restaurants try Duende at Wiveliscombe, Ginger Peanut at Bampton or Woods Bar & Restaurant at Dulverton. Make it good, make it happy, make memories to last a lifetime.
Note that we can only take bookings from single sex groups by prior arrangement so be sure to call the office before you book.
