The Cedars is the perfect house in the country for sophisticated hen weekends; it’s like a world of your own, in a wonderful setting, with luxurious interiors and first-rate facilities. You don’t even need to go out anywhere, while away the time relaxing in the swim spa, have afternoon tea on the terrace, put the pizza oven to good use for an Italian evening, get together in the BBQ lodge, toast marshmallows and have a sing-song.

Amble up to the pond where you can scoot about in the rowing boat, take a picnic and laze away a whole afternoon in the sunshine – absolute bliss. If you fancy going a little further, have a walk in the fields, or pootle down to Culmstock and stroll up to Culm Beacon; when you come back down have a pub lunch at The Culm Valley Inn.

You might want to book an activity or two, so take a look at our Things To Do page for inspiration. You could go for a trek with Sheldon Riding School, alpaca walking with Stoke Wood Alpacas, or for something higher octane, head to Mansell Raceway for go-karting. If you go over to the coast you can try mackerel fishing at Lyme Regis, or even an exhilarating rib ride.

Have a day in Exeter doing whatever it is you like to do – shop till you drop, get a whole load of history at the beautiful cathedral and the medieval Underground Passages, take to the waters of the Exe estuary in kayaks or on stand-up paddle boards with Saddles and Paddles.

On our Extras page you’ll find suppliers who can bring the fun to you – cheeky life drawing, cup cake making, cocktail classes, and if you fancy booking professional caterers to come and serve you canapes and cocktails on the terrace or to cook you up a humdinger of a celebratory dinner, that’s where you’ll find them.

With such a great choice of things to do and such a stunning house to stay in, we’ve a feeling that it’ll be a hen weekend to remember. Book now!
