The traditional hen party is an ancient rite of passage to wedded bliss; an opportunity to gather together your favourite females and head off for a weekend of celebrating. Finding the right place to stay isn't always easy, but nestled in Somerset's Blackdown Hills, Flossy Brook fits the bill perfectly; sleeping 12 in 5 stylish bedrooms, this award winning self catering lodge is spacious and luxurious, so plenty of room for you and your hens to sing and dance - plus there's a fabulous integral heated pool so you can take a dip any time of day or night without having to go outside.

The big patio is a real sun trap, a great place for barbecues, afternoon tea, drinks and chit chat, and all around you is just beautiful Somerset countryside. Cooking for 12 can be a chore so book a table at the Candlelight Inn, just a short stroll down the lane, or call in one of our tried and tested local caterers - they'll have a scrumptious celebratory feast prepared in no time.

Have a look at our Extras page for some fantastic ideas to make your hen weekend one that you'll all be talking about for years to come; if your group are the outdoorsy type, then just pick up one of the footpaths from the doorstep and explore the fields and hills, or go further afield for cycling and pony trekking. Pamper your hens with an indulgent spa treatment - perhaps an Indian head massage, or a relaxing facial; have a dance class - stamp your feet flamenco style or opt for some hip shaking samba.

Why not gather round the table and make some vintage textile corsages or garters, decorate cup cakes, or paint your own pottery? Dress up to the nines in the evening and have your very own cocktail waiter to serve you Mickey Slims and Singapore Slings, or mix your own at a cocktail clinic - all in the comfort of Flossy Brook. Don't dally! Get your band of beauties together and book up for a weekend of girly celebrating to remember!
