Stoke the fire and batten down the hatches whilst enjoying a winter craft lesson.

WINTER COCKTAIL WORKSHOPS
Cocktail Workshops inject an energetic slice of fun and laughter into any hen weekend. What better way to enjoy an afternoon in your cottage when it’s cold outside? Each member of the group will learn to make 3 delicious cocktails and of course drink them afterwards! Ask us to put a Christmas slant on the cocktail making or even non-alcoholic option for those who can’t indulge.
PRIVATE CHEF DINNER
Winter food menus can infuse you with warmth and love! Why not include a delicious three course cooked meal whilst on your Acacia hen weekend? One of our professional chefs will come to you in the comfort of your own cosy cottage, cook & serve a wonderful meal and then do the washing-up!
The wonderful thing about a cottage based meal is that you get get everyone round the table which means you can play some seriously good hen party games.
We love chocolate so any excuse for the chance to indulge should always be taken! What better excuse than on a wonderful winter hen weekend sitting around in your pj’s chatting a laughing with a group of your best mates? Whilst it’s cold outside learn about chocolate & have fun eating and creating some chocolate truffle delights – enough said!
The great thing about getting closer to Christmas is the numerous Ice-skating rinks which pop up in cities throughout the UK. Release your inner Torville & Dean twisting and turning across the ice rink until you wiggle and giggle your way into a huge ungainly heap on the floor!
Great Ice-skating cities: Bath, Bristol, Manchester, Edinburgh, York, Newcastle, Leeds and many more!
Don your winter woollies, hats and scarfs and go into one of the many Cities which have Christmas Markets and Fayres. Amble round the fascinating little Christmas chalets selling all sorts of Christmas gifts and food, whilst enjoying a glass of mulled wine listening to Christmas carols. A brilliant way to get yourself ready for the festive period.
Great places to go: Bath, Cheltenham, York, Oxford, Bristol, Manchester, Exeter and many more.
Relaxing in a country pub with log fires, relaxing music and hearty pub food is great after an action packed day. Alternatively, head into a buzzing city and go to a bar or restaurant with a vibe which will set you alive. The tip for winter meals out is to book in advance and get transfers to and from the venue as you really don’t want to be hanging around in the cold and wet! Contact us for more details.
The craft workshop was brilliant. The hen herself was very excited to be making something for her wedding and with 18 of us working together we made much more than they expected! They bought some fabulous vintage fabrics and were the perfect amount of helping yet keeping out of the way at the same time. Worth every penny I think, and will be lovely to look at the bunting at the wedding and to know that we made it!!
