The Hen House....

Don't fancy a rave up in Brighton! but prefer a weekend spent cocktail making, burlesque dancing, enjoying a afternoon tea or dipping in a hot tub, then I think I may have found the PERFECT place for you..

Just 45mins from Bristol, near the pretty town of Ross On Wye 'Mill End' at Mitcheldean has a whole host of options to cater for hen parties. 

I visited over Easter and completly fell in love with the place. Including the house's cat Nancy!..  Everywhere I looked the house is adorned with quirky art work. The fridges with local produce (including wine) and has a fantastic sense of a home away from home. Everything is very clearly thought out and I doubt you'll find this level of detail in another 'Hen House' 

Some of my favorite options for 'Hens'  -

A banquet in the barn (Mad hatter tea party looks fab too)

Burlesque dancing

Cocktail making or baking

Drinking bubbles in the hot tub & beautiful garden!

Boudoir photo shoot or photo booth with all your hens

Murder Mystery (I'd love to do this)

We found the co-op across the road useful and visited Puzzlewood (crazy looking forest, that I belive they filmed some of Lord of the Rings in) Ross on Wye (great second hand shopping) and a butterfly farm.. I noticed loads of activites to do in the Forest of Dean that would be great for group parties. They had cycle paths, canoeing, Go Ape, walks etc.. A fantastic area, that I will be visting again!.. 

The website is very, very helpful and if looking for a 'Hen House' this is a no brainer... 

This is a collection of photo's I took while at the house -
