Maybe you're a second time bride with something quite sophisticated in mind for your hen party, or perhaps you just prefer a quieter life; it might be that you live in the city and want to escape the hustle and bustle and have a relaxing time with your leading ladies. Whichever you are, come to Cobbleside and spend a leisurely weekend in these tranquil surroundings; it's a very elegant house with heaps of character and the most wonderful walled garden - perfect for afternoon tea in the sunshine, croquet on the lawn, or for sitting out beneath the stars.

If you take a look at our Extras page you'll find a host of ideas to entertain your fabulous females; spend an afternoon indulging with some luxury pampering treatments, pop on your pinnies and decorate cakes, try your hand at making vintage corsages, or a garter for your big day; have a giggle and put on berets and false moustaches for a cheeky life drawing class; get your hips moving with a belly dancing lesson; pose with your pre-wedding posse for pics taken by a professional portrait photographer; a lasting momento of a wonderful weekend.

If you want to make the most of the glorious countryside and fresh country air, the wild and beautiful Quantock Hills aren't far away and there are heaps of possibilities for walking, cycling, (we think electric bikes are a sensible option!) horseriding, or more adventurous activities like clay pigeon shooting or paintballing. The Somerset coast is only 30 minutes drive away, so head over for some sea air, fish and chips and a stroll along the sand.

No doubt food will play a big part in your celebrations, and there's a superb gastro pub a short walk away from Cobbleside, or why not get in one of our tried and tested caterers to create a feast that will tantalise your tastebuds; you could even have your own cocktail bartender to serve you pre-dinner drinks. Happy times!
