We know how important destination is to your hen party success. At Acacia Cottages, we carefully choose our destinations based on where the best hen party cottages are and where we can find you the best range of hen party experiences. If you’re needing some ideas and inspiration on where to go and what to do, try our area guides…
If you’re not sure where to go, the first place to start is with the bride-to-be. After all, she’ll most likely have an idea of how far she wants to travel or even an idea of the best central location for the hen party group to get together. She may even have an old stomping ground she’s desperate to revisit for a bit of nostalgic fun. If she doesn’t want to commit, base your location on what she wants to do. If she’s into Water Sports try somewhere like Bournemouth or Tenby or if she loves city life, try Bath, York or Bristol. Finally, one last rule of thumb, most of our groups like to keep their journeys to about a couple of hours. Less time travelling means more time celebrating! Yah!

...Then there was time to chill and relax before getting all glammed up for our night in Bath. Scotty the taxi driver and his partner were lovely and made it so easy to transfer into town and back even stopping to take group photos for us. The meal and waitress were also wonderful and then it was on to party with drinks and dancing at the nightclub! A huge thank you for all your recommendations it was a fabulous weekend! Everything was perfectly organised and timed and therefore hassle free!
Bath is a sophisticated medley of things to do, day or night. Stylish shopping, the River Avon for water fun, the Race Course for a flutter or two. At night, it comes alive with restaurants and nightlife sure to keep you dancing to the wee small hours. Great for Cocktails in bars, Afternoon Tea, Locked-in and Gin Tasting. The surrounding countryside is stunning, with quaint villages with taste bud tingling gastro pubs.
The cobbled streets of York really set the tone for a charm filled hen weekend. They say there is a different pub for everyday of the year – so at least you know you won’t go thirsty! Set close to the river for all sorts of water fun, the Cathedral looms high creating the perfect backdrop for all your Instagram shots! Think, themed dance lessons, cocktails, meals, club entry, clay shooting and a whole host of river ideas.
Full of eclectic charm with an established hen friendly nightlife and restaurant scene. Bristol is sure to satisfy all sorts of tastes. What more would you expect from the City which gave us Banksey? You wont be left wanting for activity ideas either with Locked In, Booze Cruises, all sorts of water sports, cocktails, gin tasting, wine, Afternoon Tea and so much more.
