Popular Hen Weekend Activities

Our 18 most popular hen activities have been selected based on what our Acacia customers love to do and all their positive feedback. All the activities are tried and tested, so you’ll know you’re getting the best possible options. So, all you have to do is decide what you are looking for, be it giggles, pampering, excitement or just pure, delectable food.


“….The activities were also amazing- the art class was so much fun, both facilitator and model had a great sense of humour and made us all relaxed and we had lots of laughs…” Michelle, Stone Farmhouse


What to choose?

Our top 18 hen activities are designed to give you a head start in deciding what to include in your holiday package. Asking the bride-to-be what she fancies doing is also a brilliant place to start as she may have already created an activity bucket list. If you’re trying to book things on the hush, go for activities you know she has an interest in. If she loves to make and do, Life Drawing and Craft Lessons are great; if she seems particularly stressed from all her wedding planning a Pampering activity is essential. Just keep one eye on the whole hen group as just because the bride loves fitness not everyone in the group may be quite as up for it, so balancing the weekend with fitness and rest, is more likely to result in happy hens!


“…The Chef was incredible, the food was delicious. The beauticians were great! The night out was so much fun too!…” Jade, Grand Cotswold Farmhouse


We aim to inject the fun

All our activities are selected specifically to help you have the best hen weekend ever. After all, you only get one weekend to remember. Our suppliers are chosen to inject the sense of occasion and generally keep your celebration alive.


“…The weekend was absolutely great – the bride loved all of it! The Friday night dinner was amazing – exceeded our expectations to be honest! And oh my goodness the treatments were incredible – we all came out saying how lovely the ladies were and how some of the best treatments we had. The bride loved how we had all of these activities at the house as well! The house was perfect for what we needed, and having the tub!…” Jess, 2018
