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 -


  1. This is truly an amazing hen-party. I loved party venue and all other arrangements. Thanks for this sharing it. I am also very busy these days in arrangements of my cousin’s country wedding. Right now we are undecided about which Chicago wedding venues to book as all venues we visit seem great.
