Hen Party Retreats

Hen Party Accommodation

When deciding what to do for your (or your friend’s) hen party, there are so many options out there that it can be hard to choose. Do you opt for an expensive weekend abroad or something a little closer to home and more affordable? One option that is becoming ever more popular is to rent a hen cottage or large holiday house in a beautiful location and enjoy a fun-filled weekend in the UK with your best friends and family.

Hen parties don’t have to end with a group of girls stumbling around the UK or foreign city. They can be spent in luxury and comfort, enjoying the company of those closest to you while experiencing fantastic activities in the local area.

Hen party houses are available in both city centre locations in places like York, as well as rural spots where outdoor lovers can spend the days soaking up the countryside and then relax in luxury with food, drinks and games in the evenings.  We offer hen party houses with hot tubs as well as hen party houses with swimming pools.

We’ve listed some of our favourite luxury hen retreats above which we feature here at House Parties. These are fantastic properties and perfect hen party venues filled with fun, frolics and a touch of luxury pampering too. Some properties offer tailored hen weekend packages.

Whichever hen retreat you chose, hen weekends in the UK can give you lasting memories and the perfect run up to your wedding day. And how better to spend it than in a beautiful, luxury hen party house with all your best friends and family? Explore the House Parties site to see if there is one you like, but if you’re looking for something specific and can’t find it here then get in touch and we’ll do our best to help you find the perfect property.

At the bottom of the page you will find a carousel with links to suppliers to help make your hen party special, from Michelin trained chefs, cocktail making lessons or even mini highland games!

We arrived at the house and we were met by Alex the owner who made us welcome and gave us a tour of the house. Table was already set for Christmas dinner and was stunning. We were a group of 14 celebrating Christmas and we were not disappointed. The house was everything we were hoping for and had an amazing stay. Photographs of the house don't do it justice. We expected it to be big but it was massive with plenty space for everyone. Would definitely recommend booking for a special occasion and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. We loved it that much we have booked it again to celebrate new year 2020 and can't wait. Thank you Alex for allowing us to make amazing memories that we will never forget at The Gatsby.

A very large and comfortable house with a pleasant enclosed garden and within easy walking distance of the city centre. Also close to the river walk and fields for exercising your dog.

Property was clean with beds and sheets especially clean and professionally prepared. The AGA was perfect for cooking lots of meals for 14 people.

All interaction was very professional and Abid was fantastic and helpful.

Overall a perfect venue for our family Christmas. Would rent again without question.

Spacious, attractive, well equipped house. Great to have a games room and hot tub (even over Christmas).
Beds very comfy. Plenty of hot water.
Lynda and Tony were extremely helpful and fast to respond to any queries.
The kitchen had everything we needed to cater for 12.
The house had 2 Christmas trees which was very much appreciated.

We used Drylaw House as a venue for our work Christmas meeting and everyone really enjoyed their stay. We received a lovely welcome from John. The house had everything we could possibly need and was a good location (close to Edinburgh city centre and the airport).
