If you’re tasked with organising a hen weekend it can be daunting, but if what thebride-to-be wants is a quiet weekend away relaxing with your closest friends, chance to catch up and unwind in the most beautiful surroundings, The Cottage Beyond really fits the bill.
This gorgeous holiday cottage sleeps up to16 and has heaps of space with all you need to enjoy your hen weekend in the country, but the icing on the cake is a stunner of a spa hall that’s got an L-shaped swimming pool, a hot tub and a sauna. Make the most of it, book up mobile therapists from our Extras page and completely spoil yourselves (you know you’re worth it). The Cottage Beyond is set at the heart of a 180 acre organic farm so all around is nothing but glorious Somerset countryside – rolling hills, wooded valleys where streams tinkle through, and wide open fields. Put your boots on and get out for a stroll – go up to the woods for a picnic, or pootle about the lanes and find a cosy country pub where you can all have a laid back lunch. The perfect lazy weekend!
If you fancy something a little more active then head over to the wild but beautiful Quantock Hills and see them on horse back with Quantock Trekking; have fun on the racetrack at Mansell Raceway, test your target skills at Shalden Shooting School or get you all over to Lyme Regis or Beer on the world famous Jurassic Coast for a mackerel fishing trip. Hey, you could all get dressed up vintage style and book your own carriage on a steam train to the coast with The West Somerset Railway! Have a look at Our Things To Do page for more ideas and then check out the Extras where you’ll find inspiration for in-house fun and games like salsa dance classes (or Bollywood, or Street style), life drawing, and cup cake decorating.
There are several good pubs nearby where you can go and raise a glass or two, and there are good restaurants – Podshavers Barn at Bishops Lydeard, Duende at Wiveliscombe and Ginger Peanut at Bampton are all highly recommended. Of course, there’s always the option to hire one of our tried and tested caterers to come in and indulge you with a delicious three course dinner, a luscious afternoon tea or champagne and canapes – whatever you want. Book your hen weekend at the Cottage Beyond today and make it extra special.
