If you've been tasked with the job of organising an extra special hen party and you know that a loud, drunken night on the town with L-plates isn't quite your style, then booking up a long weekend in luxury self catering accommodation for a girly get together is the answer.
Sleeping 18, Holemoor Stables is just what you want. Hidden away in a private rural setting it opens up endless possibilities for a few sophisticated days away with a bunch of great girls, and there are lots of ideas on our Extras page to help you out. If you're the outdoorsy types you can head out into the countryside on horseback, or go exploring on foot, or by bike, and perhaps wind up at one of the village pubs nearby for lunch. Right from the doorstep you can walk to Hornsbury Mill where you can walk around the lake and have a scrumptious cream tea - big fat scones, lashings of jam and cream... A little further away Castle Neroche or Staple Hill on the Blackdown Hills are good for a walk, with a choice of the Greyhound Inn, The Candlelight Inn or the Holman Clavel for refreshments. It's only about half an hour to the Juarssic Coast where you can spend a day in Lyme Regis; play crazy golf, get out on the waters for a mackerel fishing trip, have fish and chips on the beach.
If you're a bunch of shopaholics then head to Clark's Village or Taunton, or if you really want to make a day of it, whizz up to Bath or Bristol. Just down the road is Jordans Courtyard where you can have spa treatments, join a drop in yoga or pliates class, browse the gift shop and have a bite to eat in the cafe. A few miles in the other direction is Coombe Farm Organic where they do Farm Tours and you can book indoor or outdoor space for barbecues, hog roasts, picnics and cocktails and champagne. If you prefer to stay in, well that's fine because we've got a big list of suppliers who can come in and pamper you, entertain you, cook for you - and some novel ideas for hen party fun (see Extras). How about a life drawing class, or a crafty corsage making session? A belly dance workshop, casino night, or your own cocktail class? The layout of Holemoor Stables is reminiscent of a Roman villa so you could have a themed weekend - wear togas and lounge around the pool, peel grapes for the bride to be!
