You’ve probably been fretting about your forthcoming wedding for months now and it’s looming ever closer, so now’s the time to get away with your besties for a couple of days to enjoy a wonderful hen weekend – and where else but a lovely big house in the country! Dustings is light and airy, with all you need, gorgeous countryside all around, and a hot tub where you can sit back and completely relax beneath blue skies by day and the stars at night.
You’ll love it here, this place is made for hen weekends! Plenty of room for singing and dancing, slumber space for 16, a big kitchen where you can cook up a feast (or even better, hire one of our tried and tested caterers to come and do it for you, you’re worth it, you know you are!), and a cosy cinema room where you can curl up with bowls of popcorn and crisps and watch a romantic movie.
If you want to stay put at Dustings that’s fine, but you can always mix things up a bit by booking one of the activities on our Extras page – maybe a dance class; just imagine you all learning Flamenco or Salsa – shake those hips! Or you could pop on berets and fake moustaches and try life drawing, get creative pottery painting, cupcake decorating – or why not just totally spoil yourselves and book mobile therapists to come and pamper you?
You could go to Taunton shopping and have lunch at Augustus, Brazz or at the Castle Bow Restaurant. How about booking a carriage to yourselves on an old fashioned steam train with the West Somerset Railway? Have gin & tonics or afternoon tea on board, dress up vintage style, or get off at the seaside for fish and chips – Watchet, Blue Anchor or Minehead. You might like the idea of lunch in a pretty country pub, in which case you’ve got a good choice around here – The Swan at Kingston St Mary, The Farmers Arms at Combe Florey, The New Inn at Halse, and the Rising Sun at West Bagborough are all good; if you want a top notch restaurant go to Podshavers Barn at Bishops Lydeard. If you want the wind in your hair and fresh air on your face (all good for the complexion) set out from the door and walk into the Quantock Hills – go to Cothelstone Hill and have a picnic, or climb Wills Neck, the highest point in the whole of the Quantocks. One of the best ways to see the hills and very popular for hen parties, is on horseback with Quantock Trekking and they even do tea and Prosecco back at base; perfect.
Check availability and reserve Dustings for 2 days whilst you check with the girlies and decide what you want to do on your hen weekend in the country.
