Thank you for all your help and organising it all.

Holly, May 2018, Terraced House York

We had a fantastic time thank you. And I have to say, the pictures of the cottage don’t do it any justice at all! It was superb and I would love to return. Thank you so much for organising the weekend. I will highly recommend. Glad to hear of the refund. Thank you

Victoria, 27th April, Fireplace Cottage

Everything went perfectly and all of the extras we had were amazing. The coach drive was very accommodating, the treatments were the best we’d had and the dinner was amazing.

The house is lovely too! Lovely size and the rooms were lovely. (Could have done with some bins in the rooms and full length mirrors) but apart from that we can’t complain!!

Lyanne – 27th April 2018, Principal Residence

We had an amazing time. The cottage was perfect and the owners were more than accommodating.

The craft session was also a huge success, everyone loved it. My friend was a very happy bride to be ?

Thank you for all your help!

Lisa, 20th April, Chew Magna Farmhouse & Spa

Thanks so much for everything you did to help organise the hen weekend. I wanted to write a glowing review on the website about the weekend.. it really was fantastic and could not recommend the house and the packages enough!

Milly – 16th March 2018, Stone Farmhouse

Thank you so much for everything. The bride had the most amazing weekend and everything ran like clockwork and was totally stress free. Transfers were great – comfortable, on time and friendly (and patient when we turned up a few minutes late because we were at the wrong exit!)

Steve from the Yorkshire bartender was amazing. We’d done cocktail making sessions before but this was so much better.

Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks again!

Claire – February 2018, Rural Views near York


My sister absolutely had the best time and all the guests said how fab it was.  Thank you so much for all your help in getting things organised.  The house is incredible and so was the afternoon tea, private chef dinner and spa therapists!  A truly memorable weekend.

Butler in the buff went down a treat and the chef was perfect. Thank you for organising such a fun weekend.

Ella – 10th November, Chew Magna Farmhouse and Spa

I just wanted to take the time to email you after our stay at the weekend.

We all had such an amazing time and the property was stunning. It was so clean and was such a lovely touch that we were given Prosecco and chocolates on our arrival. Please send our huge thanks to the owners for a fantastic weekend away and also for allowing us to check in early which was much appreciated.

The beauty therapists did a fantastic job making us all feel relaxed and the treatments were wonderful. The caterers were also amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal which was served promptly and was extremely tasty. They were so kind and patient with us at the end when we asked them to take a group picture of us all.

I hope you can pass on our thanks to both the therapists and caterers.

Lastly I would like to say a huge thank you to you for helping to make the whole booking an easy process. You have always responded promptly to any questions we have had and have made the whole thing really easy and stress free.

The hen and rest of the party were so pleased with the weekend and we all said how much we would recommend Acacia Cottages and the property we stayed in.

Thank you so much for everything.

Louise – 27th October

I just wanted to email to say thank you so much for arranging such a fabulous weekend. It was perfect. Alex had the best time.

All the events worked perfectly and they were all so professional, friendly and interacted with the whole group.

The bartender was brilliant fun, he got everyone joining in and laughing.

The poor chef had to come alone because her help had the flu so we helped her as much as we could but she still cooked and presented 3 beautiful dishes which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

The therapists were great, 3 lovely, bubbly women who gave brilliant treatments.

And the afternoon tea was the perfect way to end. Beautifully presented and very yummy.

I could not have faulted anything, you have all been amazing and I thank you for allowing me to throw my best friend the best hen do I could.

Lucy, 6th October, Bath Barns

Aw brilliant!

The Weekend was great fun thank you!

The life drawing and cocktail making was very fun!

The canapés were delicious – however there definitely wasn’t enough for 19 – so that’s worth mentioning.

The place was lovely too!

Thank you for all your help!

Amy – 29th September, Bath Cedar Getaway


I just wanted to drop you a note to say thankyou.  I and all the girls had a fantastic weekend.  All the activities went like clockwork.

Natalie – 24th February 2017 – Renovated Countryside Barn, Hot Tub

I wanted to send a message today to thank you so much for all of your help in arranging the most perfect hen party for my sister, Kim. She is over the moon and couldn’t be happier with the weekend we just had at the beautiful Countryside View Cottage with Hot Tub.

From the moment I booked the cottage with Acacia it was easy, stress free and a pleasure working with you. Every question I had was answered within a day with all the information I had requested.

There is always the worry in the back of your mind when arranging something that one or two things will not go quite right – the key won’t be there or the chef wouldn’t turn up, but I genuinely had no worries at all and I knew everything had been so professionally covered by you.

The caterers that came on Saturday evening were FANTASTIC! The food was to die for and the service from them just as good. We certainly didn’t go hungry and everyone commented on how wonderful everything looked and tasted. If you have their details and you are allowed to pass them on I would love to personally thank them.

The Cottage itself is divine, so beautifully kept and presented. We even had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners as we arrived slightly early and he was more than pleased to let us in and show us around. The chocolate cake they left in the fridge was a beautiful touch. The cottage really is in the most picturesque setting, we were so gutted to be leaving on Sunday and all commented on how we wanted to stay one more night!

KMichaela – Countryside View Cottage, Cheltenham – 24th February 2017

The accommodation was fantastic the photos really didn’t do it justice. It was like a little mini village the layout with the facilities was fantastic. There was an area with the hot tub and BBQ between the two cabins which was a really good central meeting point. The accommodation was clean, modern, well presented and really cosy. And the surroundings idyllic. I’m tying to find an excuse to go back with my family!!

The locked in a room game was really fun to the bride was chuffed to bits with it, and the staff were really accommodating as we had an issue with the parking.

The weekend was such a success, we all had a great time.

Hayley – 17th February 2017 – Streamside near Bath, Pool, Hot Tub

I would just like to email to say that the weekend was fantastic and to thank you all at that company for being so accommodating and organised. It was a very stress-free hen to arrange.

Britta and the cottage were amazing. The beauticians were lovely, the cocktail class was fantastic. Jo the minibus driver even made an impression with how caring and lovely she was. All your suppliers are fantastically chosen are a credit to your company.

Sian – 3rd February 2017 – Chew Magna Farmhouse with Spa

Also thank you so much for arranging a fabulous weekend.It was so well organised and all the events were fantastic and everyone we came into contact with was so nice and helpful .

The cottage/ mansion!! Was amazing, all the girls and especially my daughter were very impressed and had a wonderful weekend to remember , we will be back!!

We wondered if you do similar properties in this area that would allow us to take our dogs? as we would  love to book a family break in the new year.

Thanks once again & Hope you all have a lovely Christmas.

Jill – 25th November 2016 – Gloucestershire Hideaway

Just want to say thank you for organizing everything. We had such a brilliant weekend. Everything went to plan and the cottage was lovely, perfect for what we wanted.  The owners (is it Britta and Anthony) were brilliant. They were on the other end of the phone when we got lost and were there to greet us, even though we didn’t arrive until after 9pm. They really were lovely so please let them know that.

Thanks again for all your help.

Charlotte – 18th November 2016 – Chew Magna Farmhouse & Spa

Thank you very much for all your help with organising such a wonderful weekend, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The activities were lots of fun and the house was fantastic!

We all loved the large dining table & kitchen which made for excellent socialising! We also loved the hot tub 🙂 The lady who set up the afternoon tea was really lovely & Michael, who was in charge of the life drawing was very friendly & helpful.

My best friend had a blast! The cottage was lovely- very well equipped, very clean & well set up for our event.


Milly – Country House near Ashford – 28th October 2016

I hope you had a great weekend. I just wanted to say thanks so much for all your help and effort with organising the weekend just gone. It was absolutely faultless; the house was beautiful, the hot tubs glorious, everything ran seamlessly and every person who came over from the masseuses to the cab driver was friendly and helpful. Everyone said how much they loved the house and the weekend.

I have to admit that I was nervous about booking through an agency as opposed to direct and you have totally proved me wrong! It was seamless and I will certainly be recommending you guys for any future parties and hens.

Please let me know if there is anywhere I can share this feedback to help out.

Thank you again

Georgina – 28th October 2016 – Stone Farmhouse

We recently stayed at Chew Magna Farmhouse & Spa. The property was lovely – very old and quaint but all added to the character. We loved the fact that Alice the dog and the chickens were regular visits to our kitchen. The owners were amazing, so welcoming and helpful. Extraordinary people with an extraordinary story to tell.

The sleeping accommodation was comfortable. We had 14 people on our weekend and never felt cramped. The beds were comfortable and we were really pleased to have fresh towel’s and robe’s to wear. The breakfast food they supplied was a lovely touch and we enjoyed a hearty breakfast. We had a chef cook for us on the Saturday night and I couldn’t recommend her enough. The food was delicious, served on time and all cleared away perfectly.

We spent Saturday in the spa which is onsite. The pool was lovely although a little chilly in October. We enjoyed the hot tub and the treatments provided by our therapists were very relaxing. A wonderful, peaceful weekend in a quirky property. Definitely worth a visit – we want to make ours an annual trip.


Sarah – Chew Magna Farmhouse & Spa– 7th October 2016

Just wanted to say thank you for helping organise this weekend for my sister. She had a fab time. Everything ran very smoothly and without issue. So a massive thank you.

Sam, 30th September, Gloucestershire House

The weekend went really well and the cottage was stunning, hot tubs so good and the pool cold enough to shake off the hangover but warm enough to still be nice to swim in, even in September! The taxi company were really helpful and flexible (our bride to be couldn’t manage staying out til 2am after getting on it at midday…!) and the murder mystery was so much fun.

Laura, 23rd September, Stone Farmhouse

The cottage was beautiful it was perfect had a really good time and the people were so lovely. Will be recommending it to everyone I know!

Briony, 23rd September, Derbyshire Cottages

Roaslind, 9th Sept 2016, Chew Magna Farmhouse + Spa

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou for all your help with organising the weekend away we had at the chew magna farm house Fri 29th to sun 31st July. Everyone had a brilliant time especially the bride! The house was lovely and really well equipped. Bridget was so welcoming and always available to help if needed. We were extremely lucky with the weather so could make the most of the spa facilities which again were brilliant. Our taxi driver was lovely and very patient when waiting to get 11 ladies out of the house ready for a night out! Think he was called Scotty.

Thank you again the weekend was perfect!

Rebecca, 29th July 2016, Chew Magna Farmhouse + Spa

We really enjoyed the activities…

The chef was fantastic! Delicious food and he was very kind and polite as was his assistant.

The taxi company was punctual and the driver was lovely.

Many thanks to you for all your help in arranging the weekend. A great time was had by all!

Rachel, Countryside View + Hot Tub, 22nd January 2016

Thank you so much for organising the weekend it has been amazing!!

The property was perfect and couldn’t fault it in anyway. It’s location is ideal even if it is hard to find in the dark, the poor farmer at the top of the hill must have wondered what was going on when my friends descended on him lost and confused ( apparently that was before any alcohol).

The beauticians were great, really easy going and cheerful, they even managed to get Stacy to have her massage as she has a very weird phobia of being touched by strangers.

The chef and her assistant were excellent they blew us all away with the absolutely gorgeous food they served us and they cleaned up all the plates and any mess, amazing!

I will be recommending Acacia as a company to book through.

Claire, Somerset Sleepover, January 2016

Just want to say a big thank you for this weekend! Everything was perfect and we loved the barn!

Sarah, 4th December, Bath Barns

We had a lovely weekend. Thank you so much for helping in organising it. Everyone enjoyed the weekend and loved the cocktail making and spa.

Beth, 27th November, Chew Magna Farmhouse & Spa

We had a great weekend. We particularly enjoyed the life drawing (the tutor was excellent and we can’t recommend her highly enough to future hen parties).

Rachel, 21st November, Chew Magna Farmhouse & Spa

Just to say the weekend was an excellent hit – the bride to be had an amazing time!!

Absolutely fantastic package – the barn was beautiful…. The chef Alison was fantastic – beautiful food and she was really relaxed and made the evening so much easier. Dance lesson spot on and the teacher was really game for a laugh and was super friendly and just brilliant. Like wise with the barman Mike for the cocktail lesson, he coped really well with 16 rowdy ladies!!

All in all, one great weekend had by all – thank you so so much for everything!

Rhian, 13th November, Renovated Countryside Barn

I just wanted to say a huge big thank you for everything you and the team did in organising what turned out to be an absolutely amazing weekend!!!

Nat, Green Cottages, 18th September 2015

Emma, Chill Out Cottages, Bath, Bristol & Somerset, 24th July 2015

We all had an absolutely amazing weekend thank you! I will definitely be recommending you and I’m already looking for an excuse to use you to book another break away some time in the near future!!

Lucy, Renovated Barn near Bath, Bath, Bristol & Somerset, 10th July 2015

We all had so much fun on our weekend away it was brilliant, loved the chefs the food was amazing and we all enjoyed our different beauty treatments. We spent the whole day on Saturday in the hot tub it was bliss! Being the bride to be I had the best time it’s a great idea for your hen weekend! Thank you!

Kiera, Stone House, Yorkshire, 19th June 2015

Thanks very much I (and all the hens) had an amazing weekend;

Feedback for the accommodation would be that the owners were great – very accommodating, great location (lots of fabulous scenery), lovely clean modern lodges and would definitely recommend.

The catering company used were also amazing it’s so difficult to cater for that many people and there was not one single complaint and lots of clean plates the food was absolutely stunning!

And feedback for you guys would be that, I have already and will continue recommending you to friends & family who would like a group getaway organised – so professional and a pleasure to deal with unlike other companies. Your customer service and organisational skills are top notch, nothing was too much trouble and changes to our booking were accommodated!

Thanks again!

Sharon, Bath Cedar Getaway, 23rd May 2015

The barn was amazing. Beautiful garden and great communal areas. The owner was also really friendly and helped us out by drawing us a map of the walk to the local pub.

Would definitely recommend it to others.

The caterers were also great. They were prompt, the food was delicious and they were really helpful without being at all intrusive.

Many thanks for your help with the weekend.

Alison, Hertfordshire Barn, 23rd May 2015

We had an amazing time, the accommodation was just perfect for what we needed, great facilities and set up. The caterer was absolutely fantastic, everyone loved their meal. I would definitely recommend him and would love you to pass on our thanks for such a great evening. The coach driver, Dave was also fantastic, he looked after us very well so please also pass on our thanks for taking us to and from Cheltenham.

All in all I would 100% recommend the house and your event planning to anyone looking for a large house for a group party.

Kate, 22nd May, Gloucestershire House

Thanks so much. Our weekend was absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks so much x

Lucie, Luxury House South of Bath, 23rd May 2015

We had a really great time at the cottage. It was nice that we had two adjoining cottages as we were able to gather in the bigger cottage and we also had space for people who wanted to get away from the party and go to bed early. The cottages were well equipped although it would have been good to have more large bin bags to dispose of rubbish at the end of the weekend.

The supper on Friday was delicious – the lasagne was very well received! Our transfers were also on time.

The hen was very happy and I would recommend Acacia cottages to anyone looking for a hen weekend away.

Thanks again for all your hep.

Michelle, 24th April, Rachels Rural Retreat

Just a quick email to say how fab the weekend was & how pleased we were with the transfer, treatments & especially the facilities! Will definitely recommend Ur self’s as a company & book up again in the future

I wanted to say a huge thank you for organising the cottage and activities for Kara’s hen do – we all had such an amazing time and a quote from the bride-to-be was “couldn’t have asked for anything better”. So I’m very happy about that!

Amy, 20th March 2015, Norfolk & Norwich Cottages

Firstly the service from Acacia was fantastic, always responsive, and tired your best to accommodate our needs. The chosen venue was perfect, the owners were so helpful and hospitable, they even baked us a lovely chocolate cake. The barn had all the facilities we needed for the whole weekend, it was beautifully decorated, with opulent furnishings. The location was good, quiet and out of the busy city which is just what we wanted.

The massages and cocktail making all went down well with everyone. The bar man was such a good host and joined in some of our games. The Hen had a fantastic time, a weekend to remember 🙂

Overall we are definitely satisfied with what we received in our booking.

Teena, 20th March 2015, Peak District Barns

The cottage was absolutely wonderful – and the weekend was fantastic. The bride absolutely loved it.!

Claire who taught the dance class was brilliant. Such a good laugh and so enthusiastic in helping us.!! You wouldn’t have known she was the teacher – she joined in with us.!

Amy, 20th March 2015, Norfolk & Norwich Cottages

We all wanted to say how lovely the cottages were, they were so clean and well equipped, everyone had a great time.

Sheena, Classic Contemporary Cottages, 20th Feb 2015

Just wanted to let you know that we all had an amazing weekend, and that everything was perfect! The barn was amazing, the life drawing class was so much fun and Komedia was brilliant! The food was great and all in all it was a perfect weekend.

Vicky, Bath Barns, 6th Feb 2015

We had a fantastic weekend thankyou. The cottage was beautiful and everything ran so smoothly. The owners were so kind and looked after us all weekend, always making sure we had a log fire to come back to.

Everyone said what an amazing place it was and the bride said she had the most amazing weekend. Thank you so much for all of your help along the way! I will definitely be recommending you to all of my friends!

Louise, 30th January 2015, Countryside Barns, Yorkshire

Just wanted to thank yourself & your staff to help organise a great weekend. Everybody loved the accommodation, facilities and surroundings. We were celebrating our friends, Shaun’s 30th birthday and we took him away as a surprise-he was so overwhelmed, even more so when Corey our naked butler turned up! He helped us serve our dinner, played games and helped the Prosecco flow (maybe a bit too well) leading into an enjoyable evening in the hot tub!

Clay shooting was great fun, our 71 year old instructor Joe was a right laugh! And we ate at the pub that was recommended-the food they served hit the spot!!

Thanks again!

Joni, 31st January, Classic Contemporary Cottages

Gloucestershire House was amazing, like having a boutique hotel all to ourselves. Amy, the burlesque instructor, was so friendly and funny – she made us all relax and taught us a great routine. The canapés were delicious. Thanks again for all your help organising the hen weekend, Jo (the bride) and all the girls absolutely loved it.

Jessica, 23rd January, Gloucestershire House

I just wanted to email to tell you what a fabulous weekend we’ve had this weekend on my sister’s Hen weekend.

Everything was perfect!!

The accommodation was out of this world absolutely perfect for what we needed. Thank you so much for helping me to organise it. All the activities went down really well and everyone particularly liked the cocktail lesson!!

Sarah, 16th January, Classic Contemporary Cottages

We had the most amazing weekend…… Everything went to plan & the house was totally gorgeous!

The cocktail making was brilliant fun and the 1920’s hair & make up was fabulous. The whole weekend was full of belly laughter & there is simply no way we could have made it any better.

Thank you personally Nerys for being extremely helpful, organised, patient & informative. You have been a pleasure to deal with. So the 2nd time I have used Acacia cottages and I will highly recommend and hope to use you again in the future.

Natalie, 12th December 2014, Design Apartment, Bath

Just wanted to say thank you very much, we had the most fabulous stay at the Farmhouse. The house itself was ideal for a family getaway as the living space was brilliant for relaxing and entertaining.

Both the Vintage Afternoon Tea and the Chef dining experience were amazing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed both, especially the dressing up props for tea and being served a wonderful three course meal. Both made my 40th really special.

The house was also ideal for a visit into Bristol and into Bath, both of which were delightful and had their Christmas markets on. Even my dog, Clayton, enjoyed his stay with ideal country walks.

Thank you again for organising us such a wonderful stay.

Nyree, 8th December 2014, South Gloucestershire Farmhouse

We had a fabulous time and felt that the barns were ideal for our event. Thank you for all your help.

It has to be saying something for the overall quality of the accommodation and catering etc when the only criticism I heard was in respect of the spider webs on the higher beams!!

Lol! The barns were ideal for our party of 13.

We decorated the dining area with a Christmas tree and hung lights from the beams. It was simply gorgeous for our Saturday meal.

The open fire with plenty of logs was very welcome.

Please pass our thanks to your splendid chefs who were truly amazing in terms of their willingness to try and accommodate our little touches.

Clive, Bath Barns, 5th December 2014

Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much for all of your help with the booking and organisation of our weekend away in Chew Magna. We had the most amazing weekend away and the hen was really blown away. The cottage was also absolutely stunning.

Thank you so much again, we’re already looking into when we can organise our next trip away and try out one of the other cottages you have!

Joanna Hurt, Renovated Countryside Barn, 21st November 2014

It really was a great weekend and my sister loved every minute of it. In particular we all thought the therapists were amazing. I had a back massage and it was wonderful. Really professional and skilled.

Natalia, November 2014, Log Fire & Friends

Just wanted to drop you an email to say we have returned from the hen do. Everything was brilliant we had such a good time. The house was amazing!

Hayley, Bath Modern, October 2014


what a fantastic weekend. It was all so amazing.

Everyone had such a great time. It all ran so smoothly and everyone was so lovely.

Thank you so much for all your help and hard work in getting it all organised.

Collette, Renovated Countryside Barn, November 2014

I would just like to say thank you so such for a fantastic weekend. We had the most brilliant time. The house was beautiful and the treatments were lovely, and the food was especially good!

Many thanks again!

Becky, Cotswold Cottage near Bourton on the Water, August 2014

We had a fantastic weekend! Thank you for all your help arranging it.

The cottage was immaculate. We had a very restful, peaceful and relaxing time. The cottage was close enough to Bath and we went to the Thermae Spa on the Saturday – stunning views and thoroughly enjoyed.

Our therapist on the Sunday was wonderful. Facials and massages were just right – we were disappointed we hadn’t arranged more!

Thanks again for all your help and patience and for finding the cottage at such late notice.

We will all be recommending you to our friends and family – and hopefully use Acacia Cottages again in the near future.

Sarah, Wild Country Cottages, August 2014

We had a fantastic time at the Chew Magna Farmhouse with spa, easier to find than I thought which was fantastic. The driver Geoff was also a great addition to our night out.

The beauty therapists were also fantastic, with a couple of the girls wanting extra treatments. I would easily recommend you for further business.

Many thanks for everything and if I have to arrange another hen weekend, you’ll be the first to go to.

Sophie, Chew Magna Farmhouse & Spa, August 2014

We had such a fantastic weekend! Everyone really enjoyed everything and it was so nice to have everything planned and organised so there was no stress about sorting money and how we would get into town.

Most importantly the bride to be had a fantastic time and loved the cottage we stayed in. It was a perfect weekend. I would recommend your company to everyone planning a group event.

It was made so easy by all of you.

Fay, Chill Out Cottages, July 2014

Fay, Chill Out Cottages, July 2014

We all had a great weekend thank you so much for all your help. Cottage was great, and the owners helpful. Quirky things in the cottage, great cooked breakfast supplies.

Clay shoot was great fun and no injuries!! Saturday night food in the pelican was fantastic, food perfect and delicious so highly recommend. Sunday spa was fantastic.

She thoroughly enjoyed and now 4 weeks till the big day 🙂

Louisa, Chew Magna Farmhouse, 18th July 2014

…the house was lovely & we had such a fab weekend. Bernie & Chrissie were great Friday evening, the dinner was delicious & they left the kitchen spotless.

Also Tosh, the cocktail host was fantastic! He was witty, fun & was really patient with us…11 girls all characters can be hard but he was brilliant. We all said how great the 2 hours were, 1 of the hens even saying that was the best hen activity they’d done at any of the hen parties they had been on.

Thank you for your help in organising it all.

Hayley, Bath Modern, 18th July 2014

We had a fantastic time from start to finish. The accommodation was just perfect and the quality and service from the beauty therapists were second to none. Some of the party (who have attended a few day spa’s) commented that they were the best massages they’d had.

The team at Circo were also fantastic and we had an excellent time with them during cocktail making.

I would also like to thank you for your service and support, I will definitely be recommending you in the future.

Overall it was a fantastic weekend and the best way I could have spent my hen weekend, I’m so glad we found you guys!

Rachel, Streamside, 11th July 2014

I just wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic weekend! The Bride to be was overwhelmed and the girls had so much fun, I couldn’t have organised it without the help of you and Gemma at Acacia Cottages. What a brilliant time and the activities were perfect, all on time and more than what we were expecting.

The tea party was by far the favourite and the ladies were so lovely. The cottage itself was stunning none of us wanted to leave. Thank you again! amazing! I will definitely be using Acacia in the future!

Zoe, Renovated Countryside Barns, June 2014

I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you very much for your and your colleagues help, the hen weekend went really well.

It was a really lovely place and the food was amazing. If you need me or any of the party to make a recommendation, we would be happy to!

Hannah, Derbyshire Cottages with Pool, 27th June 2014

Hope you are well! Just wanted to update you on the weekend. The cottage was absolutely amazing, so modern and beautifully presented! The hot tub was a big hit. We were a bit worried about the lack of phone signal but had access to free wifi so we managed!

I was really anxious about the Butler and I didn’t sleep brilliantly worrying about it on the Friday night but he was a blast, up for a laugh and very easy on the eye. I attach a photo for you to judge 😉

Emma, 27th June 2014, 5 star Cottage in the Peak District.

The cottage was absolutely lovely- I couldnt fault it one bit.

It was perfect in every way, we didn’t want to leave! Your company is brilliant as well, so informative, efficient and organised

I have recommended you to a lot of people, I am now trying to find another excuse to book the cottage again!

Helen, Stone Chapel, 16th May 2014

The cottages were perfect. They were spotlessly clean and we arrived to the most amazing welcome pack – homemade Welsh cakes (mmmm!), cheese, bread, juice, biscuits….. I could go on!

The cottages had plenty of bathroom /shower facilities for a party of 9 girls to get ready for a night out! The space was perfect and offered more than enough room, without us all being on top of each other. The Clay Pigeon shooting was fantastic and the whole group had brilliant fun. In addition, the minibus transport arranged for our night out in Bath arrived early and delivered us to our chosen restaurant, La Tasca in luxury!

Again, the transport home was ready and waiting at our chosen time. All in all a GREAT weekend and I would have no hesitation in recommending Acacia Cottages to any Maid of Honour/Bridesmaid tasked with the job of organising a Hen Do.

They really do take all of the stress away for you! In addition, I would highly recommend Wild Country Cottages as a Hen Do destination. Every single one of our party has said that they intend to go back and visit with their partners/groups of friends etc!

Thank you Acacia Cottages!

Sonia, Wild Country Cottages, 9 May 2014

I cannot thank you enough, the house was beautiful and the weather was just fabulous.

All the things you sorted out for us the butler, mini bus, meal and nightclub was fantastic. All went according to plan. The lady next door was a sweetie to

Also thank you for my deposit. Thank god nothing was broken.

How can I leave feedback?

Once again thank you for your amazing service. I will defiantly be speaking highly of your company.

Helga, Somerset Stone Farmhouse, 3rd May2014

The weekend was fantastic thank you!! The cottages are absolutely lovely and we all had a great time

Was very impressed with the supper delivered on the Friday too – everyone agreed it was very tasty and certainly more than enough to go round!

Thanks again for all of your help finding us the cottage and making it all run smoothly

Sarah, Bath Renovated Barns with Hot Tub, 28th March 2014

The weekend was fantastic thank you very much for organising it all.

The cottage was prefect for us and it was great that everyone came to us.

The ladies who did the tea party and the treatments were so lovely and made the days so enjoyable.

The transport for the night out was also great the gentleman driving even offered to come and get us later then originally agreed.

I will keep your details for our next girly weekend away

Thank you again so much

Jade , Chill Out Cottages, 14th March 2014

We had a really good weekend, thank you for your help organising it all, the package we got really suited our hen party and everyone had a brill time.

Claire, Derbyshire Cottages with Pool, 21st February 2014

Just to say thank you for organising the Hen do, the property was beautiful and please send all our thanks to the therapists and the caterer, the whole weekend was fab and I will be recommending you highly to friends and family.

I am planning another Hen next year and will definitely be in contact as I have been very impressed with the whole process.

Many thanks

Lindsey, Cotswold Cottage near Bourton on the Water, 21st February 2014

On behalf of the group thought I’d just like to say a massive thank you to you and everyone at Acacia for organising such a great weekend! I’ve already recommended you guys to a number of other people who are arranging hen do’s as the service we received was brilliant from start to finish!

Rachael, Stone House in Yorkshire, 7th February 2014

We had a great weekend; cottage was perfect with a nice local pub across the road and the owner was very helpful and obliging.

Peter the chef was great, really nice chap and the food was beautiful and tasty and we were well looked after by the waitress.

Joanne, Norfolk House near Kings Lynn, 31st January 2013

Thank you so much.  We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend.  Having organised several hen do’s can I just say what a pleasure it was to deal with yourself and your colleagues.  To not be bombarded with phone calls and emails was a great relief and a welcome change from the usual process.  The weekend was exactly as had been specified with no hidden fees or worries so I was actually able to enjoy myself also without constantly worrying something would go wrong.

The beauticians were so lovely and very professional. The barman for the cocktail lesson was perfect in his role and we all had a great time.

A wonderful stay. Many thanks to you and your team.

Claire, Bath Modern, 31st January 2014

I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you for organising such a great weekend for my sister’s hen do. The cottage was amazing and the activities were fantastic! It all went very smoothly and the hen had a brilliant weekend!

Our feedback on everything is generally really positive. The dance class was really fun and the teacher was very good. Makeup/hair was also a great activity. The taxi was on time and the driver very friendly. The photo shoot was also good although the set up was a little different to what we expected with more reportage/action shots of us chatting etc rather than staged poses.

The cottage itself is really great and perfect for a hen do with its numerous bedrooms and single beds. The downstairs is also very practical with the large eat in kitchen and separate utility room. Lots of people in our party commented on how great the cottage was.

Thanks again!

Alex, Oxfordshire Farmhouse, 6th December 2013

It was a super weekend thank you. Everything went really smoothly and the girls all loved it.

Thanks for all your help organising it.

Mandi, Chew Magna Farmhouse and Spa, 22nd November 13

Just wanted to say thank you for organising such a really fun weekend.

The house really had the WOW factor and we loved being in the kitchen area.

We enjoyed getting our hair and make-up done. Alex the butler was brilliant and we will recommend them both!

Ruth, Stylish Gloucester Cottage, 22nd November 13

Would recommend to anyone. We will definitely be booking again.

Donna, Tenby Cottage with Outdoor Pool, 18th October 2013

We had a fab time at the cottage so thanks again for organising!

The cocktail lesson was fun, the minibus to Go Ape was perfect and the butler was great fun 🙂

Everybody absolutely LOVED the cottage, the setting was beautiful and the hot tub was great!

Natalie, Cotswold Cottage near Bourton-on-the-Water, 1st November 2013

We had an absolutely super weekend thank you. The house was amazing very clean and well equipped. The hot tub was lovely and added to our relaxing weekend. The therapists were lovely on time and very professional. Everyone enjoyed their treatments.

We look forward to booking again with you soon for this time next year.

Thanks for all your help with this weekend.

Sarah, Bath Modern, 1 November 2013

I just wanted to pop you a quick email to say thank you so much for all your help with my Hen Do! The service I’ve received from start to finish has been absolutely tremendous!

The house was fantastic (including the home made cake sat waiting for us when we arrived), the Clay Pigeon shooting was fantastic with great instructors, and the beauty therapists were amazing!!

We all had a definite weekend to remember! We’re even talking about making it an annual occurrence, so will categorically book again through yourselves!

Thank you so much,

Sam & her 12 Hens!, Redbrick House, 13th September 2013

We enjoyed our weekend very much.

The people you used for the canape’s, butler and cocktail making were all very efficient and on time, if not early, which was a bonus!

Thanks for all the organising.

CG, Stone House in Yorkshire, 6 September 2013

I’m off on holiday tomorrow so Just wanted to say before i go we had a great weekend! The lodges were lovely and so was the owner. The vintage tea ladies were fab and made it a great day. They left there kettle behind so I gave it to the owner to keep hold of, maybe u could let then know? The hair and make up girls were brilliant! Everyone one looked great!

Would highly recommend every part. Really pleased, thank you so much 🙂

Christine, Streamside Cabins, 30th August 2013

So that’s it, the hen weekend has been and gone!!!!

We all had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks again for your help!!

Liz L, Luxury Lodges and Cottage, near Bath, 9 Aug 13

I know you aren’t there today but I thought I would send an email for you to pick up tomorrow. I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all your help organising our weekend away. We all had a FANTASTIC weekend and everything ran very smoothly so thank you very much, we would definitely recommend Acacia Cottages 🙂

The cottage itself was amazing and actually much better/bigger than we thought it might be. Please can you send a special thank you to ‘Rob’s kitchen’ for:

1. organising the food at such short notice

2. leaving it there for us when we couldn’t make it in time, the traffic was horrendous, but all the food was left in the fridge for us all ready and waiting, it was also very tasty so we are really pleased we went with that option so thank you for the recommendation.

Thanks again for all your help Nerys and I look forward to using Acacia again in the future.

Nicola, Somerset Stone Chapel, Bath, 9 Aug 13

I just wanted to thank yourself and Acacia Cottages on behalf of all the girls – we had the most amazing weekend and everything went perfectly!

Thank you again,

Kathryn and the girls, Chew Magna Farmhouse with Spa, Bath 2 Aug 13

Thanks for the email. Glad everything was ok and we received the deposit back.

Just a note to say we honestly all had such a fantastic time. The cottage was simply idyllic.

The minibus drivers Sue and Richard were absolutely fantastic!

Thanks for everything Nerys, you’ve been fantastic!!

Jenna G, Somerset Stone Chapel, Bath, 2 Aug 13

The cottage was great except the broadband was down for Friday night and Saturday after the power cut on Friday night.

The beauty treatments were excellent and the team provided a brilliant service.

The dinner on Saturday evening was also very good and the team did a great job of cooking and clearing up afterwards.

River Cottage was the highlight and the arrangements were all as planned.

All in all a great weekend, many thanks for your help

Charlene R, Somerset Sleepover, 2 Aug 13

We all had a great weekend.

The cocktail making was such fun, made all the nicer by being able to do it in the garden.

The evening meal was also lovely and the caterers worked really hard.

Thanks for all your help in organising the weekend.

We had a very happy hen!

Catherine M, Dicks House, Peak District, 2 Aug 13

Thanks for returning the security deposit.

We had a really lovely weekend thank you. The photos that were sent don’t due the place justice we thought. It was a lot bigger and more lovely than we were expecting.

The Peli was also very nice although we were quite stuffed by Sunday so a 2 course meal might have been a better option.

Overall a great weekend.

Thanks for everything.

Emily W, Chew Valley Farmhouse, Bath, 26 Jul 13

We have just returned from an amazing weekend break at the Somerset Stone Chapel. On arrival we were overwhelmed with how beautiful the place was and all agreed that the pictures on the brochure do not do it justice. The cottage was warm and friendly with everything we could possibly need and all the mod cons to help us enjoy our stay. Personal touches like tissues for each guest, cotton wool to take make up off with and a collection of DVD’s really did make it feel homely.

After a fantastic nights sleep we headed out for our first activity which was the clay shooting at Mendip Shooting Ground. Walking in as a group of females was a little daunting but when we met the staff and regulars they could not have been more helpful or friendly. We were sent out with our instructor and we all fell a little bit in love with him and his gentle coaching ways! The shooting was a great experience and he worked hard to make us laugh, put us at ease and hit some clays!

In the late afternoon we headed back to the cottage to sit outside on the beautiful decking area and enjoy the hot tub which was set at the perfect temperature before our beauty therapists arrived. The therapists session was amazing and the girls were accommodating and friendly. It was the perfect way to relax.

The late check out on the Sunday was a real treat. So many places rush you out so not having to leave till 2 was lovely and meant we could enjoy the sunshine for a little longer.

One other point I must mention is the booking of this weekend. As chief Bridesmaid I wanted everything to be perfect and bombarded the team with many questions. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly and the ease of booking was a dream. I did not feel stressed at any point!

Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend. I will be using you again and have already recommended you to all my friends!

Sara M, Somerset Stone Chapel, Bath, 26 Jul 13

Thank you very much Nerys. We had a fantastic weekend! Everyone was very helpful and friendly.

Thank you for all your help with organising.

Louise B, Chill Out Cottages, Bath, 26 Jul 13

We had a fab weekend thanks, the house was lovely and accommodated all the girls!  Everything we needed was there and the weather held out for us to dip in the pool!

Many Thanks

Rachel O, Somerset Stone Farmhouse, Bath, 26 Jul 13

In terms of feedback, I couldn’t praise you guys, the booking process or the accommodation enough. And everyone commented on the value for money, too, we all thought it was incredibly well-priced for what was included. Obviously the fabulous weather played a big part, but I think in those surroundings if it had chucked it down it wouldn’t have mattered: that place really was a home from home and if it hadn’t been so sunny I know that we would have enjoyed ourselves just as much inside. As it turned out we couldn’t be bothered to do very much at all because it was so hot, but all the better because we all have full-time jobs or kids (or both!) and that weekend was just what we all needed.

You guys at the company have all been fab and very accommodating, and it was a nice touch to get a reassuring phone call from the taxi company, a friendly text from the owner, and then a visit from the kind neighbour to check that we were ok and had everything we needed. The therapists were lovely and also very accommodating and everyone absolutely loved the fact that they came to the cottage instead of us having to get ready and traipse out somewhere! Although one tiny thing- I think those that wanted a pedicure were slightly disappointed that it was just a quick foot massage and varnish- perhaps it needs to be described as an express pedi…? I know the treatments are only 30mins long so really it should speak for itself but I think perhaps people were expecting a little more from it. That was literally the only negative thing I heard anyone say all weekend, though.

I laughed when we got the restaurant bill: it came to £34 pounds to split between all of us!! They honoured your request and took off the money we had paid for the extra meals, so in the end the bill was ridiculously tiny, even after we had all ordered bottles of wine! It was a shame the others couldn’t make it but their loss was definitely our gain!

The fridge wasn’t an issue at all and in fact the new one was delivered on the Saturday so if needed we could have used it. As it turned out the little ones in both cottages were more than enough.

I would firmly recommend this type of weekend for anyone planning a hen-do: it was easy, well-organised and fantastic value. I lost count of how many times we all said that we would organise something similar next year (who needs an excuse for a girly weekend??) and at that kind of value and service I think you’ll definitely be hearing from us again! Everyone was asking who the company was so I know everyone was just as impressed as me, and I will make sure to pass on your company’s details to anyone that I hear is organising a hen-do or weekend away.

Thank you all so much for a truly lovely time 😀

Nikki xxx

Ps. Somerset is my new favourite county. Not only is it beautiful, but everyone is so friendly and laid back! We missed the Tesco delivery and he simply said no problem- he’d come back within half an hour- which he promptly did. That would not have happened up here!!

Nikki D, Bath Barns, 19 Jul 13

GEORGIE: I just wanted to let you know what a lovely weekend we had. The house was beautiful, perfect for us, the treatments were lovely, transfer into Cheltenham was flawless – Colin was lovely. We had an amazing time, thank you for your help organising it!!

ALICIA: On behalf of Georgie and I, and all the girls over the weekend, I wanted to say a huge thank you; the house was just amazing, we all had such a wonderful time and the two beauticians were lovely, happy hens all round! Sadly I think we completely forgot to write in the book, but please do pass on our thanks to the owner, her house is incredible and it was such a perfect weekend.

Thanks so much again and best wishes, Alicia

Georgie O, Simply Stunning, Gloucestershire, 26 Jul 13

Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for organising our Fantastic Weekend in Derbyshire, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it…

The house was great, very clean, had everything we needed, layout was perfect. The Cocktail mixing was perfect, Stuart the Bar Tender was lovely, a really nice guy and of course the cocktails where spot on. The Evening meal was fantastic, the chef & partner were two lovely ladies, food was superb and when they left you wouldn’t have known they had been.

So thank you again, I would recommend your company to anyone, seamless.

Nicola R, Wood House near Belper, Peak District, 26 Jul 13

Many thanks for all your help arranging our weekend, we had a lovely time and the accommodation was fantastic.

Emily G, Cottages and Barn, Peak Distict, 19 Jul 13

Megan T, Streamside Cabins, Bath, 12 Jul 13

Thank you very much for that.

General feedback from the whole group was extremely positive – beautiful large house and (luckily!) amazing weather!

Everything that was booked went like clockwork with no hitches. No disappointments. Wonderful weekend.

Big thanks to you and your team.

Vicki N, Luxury Lodges and Cottages, Bath, 12 Jul 13

We had a wonderful time! Everything was perfect.

We had a fantastic time and the house was absolutely gorgeous.

Sam B, Chew Magna Farmhouse and Spa, Bath, 12 Jul 13

Hi thanks for organising a fab weekend for us, we had a great time.

Kerry M, Streamside Cabins, Bath, 5 Jul 13

We had a lovely time – the cottages were beautiful and everything was so easy. Nothing was too much trouble – we will definitely be returning.

Thank you to all of you in the office that helped with the booking – it wasn’t easy arranging so many activities on behalf of 9 people, but the team were really helpful.

If you have any future offers or new places, please feel free to email me details.

Adele E, Somerset Renovated Barns, Bath, 5 Jul 13

We had an amazing weekend, thanks very much for all your help with all the organising and last minute changes. The house was perfect for the group and all the activities were excellent. I will definitely recommend acacia to all my friends. The bride enjoyed every minute and the fact that the weather was so good just added to it.

Carys W, The White House, Gloucestershire, 12 Jul 13

The house was lovely, the people at the house were very welcoming and helpful if we had a problem, the pool was a god send as it was so hot. The food that was delivered was also very good, and there was plenty of it.

Jo B, Organic Farmland Cottages, Tenby, 12 Jul 13

We all had a fabulous weekend. Everything was perfect and to top it off we had amazing weather!!!

The property was gorgeous, transfers ran on time with very pleasant staff, the spa was relaxing and the chef was really nice. He made a fabulous meal. I think the meal at the property was the best part of the weekend. We couldn’t have faulted any of it. The ‘hen’ had a lovely time and all the other girls kept saying what an incredible weekend it was.

I will be recommending your services and would love to use you again for other get-togethers.

Louise P, Simply Stunning, Gloucestershire, 12 Jul 13

Thanks very much.  We had a lovely time.  The weekend was organised well and went smoothly.  The cottages were lovely.  Everyone was very impressed with them.  The spa was also enjoyed by all.

Sacha T, Chill Out Cottages, Bath, 10 Jul 13

It was BRILLIANT! Thank you for all your help.

The house was gorgeous, the photos really don’t do it justice at all, it was much bigger & prettier than we thought.

The garden was also huge & lovely.

The beauticians were lovely & the treatments were so nice.

We loved it!

Thanks  🙂

Louise B, Chew Valley Farmhouse, Bath, 5 Jul 13

I would just like to thank you for all you help in making mast weekend so wonderful.

The Farmhouse was just beautiful, and Britta and Anthony were very welcoming and helpful.  They have such a lovely property!

We were very lucky and the sun was shining on us the whole weekend.  The meal on the Friday night was fantastic.  The girls who turned up were very friendly and VERY tidy!  The kitchen was immaculate when they left.  The food was amazing considering the size of the kitchen.

The Spa was just perfect, the sun was beaming down and we just lounged around in the sun by the pool for 4 hours, like we were at the French Riviera.  Everyone caught the sun (some more than others!).

Everyone enjoyed the wine tasting, even those who don’t drink had a little go.  Bryn was very friendly, very knowledgeable and made sure that everyone was included.

And the surprise Tea-Party……It was AMAZING!!!!  the girls were just wonderful!! They had thought of everything!  One of them was a photographer and offered to take pictures for us too and send them through.  We really couldn’t have asked for more.

If Britta is wondering who the dishes belong to at the end of the kitchen counter they are from the canapé lady.  I tried to find Britta or Anthony before we left to tell them, and also that we had put the dishwasher on, but I couldn’t find them.

Could you please pass on our heartfelt thanks to them both, and their batty dogs!  All the girls have been posting all over Facebook about how amazing the place was and what a fantastic weekend they had.

Thank you once again.  We will certainly be recommending Acacia Cottages in the future.

Sian J, Chew Magna Farmhouse with Spa, Bath, 5 Jul 13

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for all your help in arranging Nikki’s Hen Do. We had an absolutely fantastic time and couldn’t have asked for better weather! The cottages were stunning and so homely, and the views were incredible- none of us wanted to leave!

Alison, who delivered the food on Friday night was delightful. She was so friendly, kind and helpful- she really couldn’t do enough for us and the food was delicious! I can’t recommend her highly enough.

The horse riding on Saturday was great fun and both of the ladies at the centre were brilliant and so supportive to the more nervous riders!

Overall, it was a perfect weekend 🙂

Thank you again.

Elly B, Bath Barns, 5 Jul 13

I just wanted to drop you a little note to say we had a fantastic time in the lodge over the weekend. Everyone loved the location and activities.

Thanks for all your help.

We had a lovely lovely weekend – just the perfect setting for all of us, such a cute little cottage and perfectly set up for a big group of girls on a (relatively civilized) hen weekend!  The spa facilities were fantastic too, and Britta was very efficient in showing us around and how everything worked.  We were also very impressed with the evening meal on the Saturday – the food was wonderful, and the ladies cooking/serving it were really nice and super-efficient. It was a great success from start to finish with all the attendees, and I will certainly recommend to anyone planning something similar in future (and would go again myself, if I am organising another big group weekend).

Many thanks

Just wanted to say a massive thank you on behalf of the bride, myself and the other 2 bridesmaid and all the girls. We had a brilliant weekend, the cottages were gorgeous, meal and canapés on Friday were lovely and the beauticians did a brilliant job! To top it all off the sun even came out!  Thank you for your help!

Just to let you know we had a fab time on the hen, everything went to plan and we thought the catering was particularly good.

Rachel L, Smith’s House, Peak District, 28 Jun 13

Wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for helping us organise our weekend. The cottage was fantastic with its beautiful garden, friendly owners and lovely spa facilities. The vintage tea was brilliant and the ladies who did that and our spa treatments were so lovely. The whole experience was perfect and my sister and all her hens really enjoyed themselves! Thanks again,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for assisting with the weekend, we all have a great time. It was a super weekend and everything was so well organised. The girls particularly enjoy the Butler in the buff and the fame dance lesson.

I will definitely recommend you and your company to my friends and colleagues in the future.

Thanks again and kindest regards

The weekend was fantastic, house was perfect, shooting school was great fun and our transfers to and from Oxford on the sat night were great. The girls had a fantastic weekend and most of all the Hen love every minute of it. Thank you for all your help with planning and organising and answering last minute questions!!

Thanks again for everything

Amy F, Meadows and Woodlands Farmhouse, Oxfordshire, 14 Jun 13

The weekend was brilliant, everyone enjoyed it and absolutely LOVED the cottage!!! It’s so beautiful!

Everything was fab and we had no problems with the transport and meal you organised. In fact I called the cab company to come at an earlier time in the night and they were very accommodating so all was well.

Thanks so much for all your help and for organising it, I have already recommended you to others!

We had an absolute ball from start to finish! The cottage and location were beautiful. It was comfortable and homely, yet felt very grand and luxurious. Charlotte and Rob’s art class was brilliant fun. They were lovely and we all had a giggle together. Colin and George at Gee Bee’s travel were lovely fellas and took really good care of us. The meal and service at Montpellier Chapter were fantastic. I know the hen had an absolute ball but so did everyone else! We ended Saturday night at Thirteen Degrees, just up the road from the restaurant and absolutely perfect for what we were after so I’d recommend that place to you for future clients.

Thank you so much for all your help. I will definitely recommend your company and will hopefully have a chance to use you again in the future.

Thank you we had a wonderful time. The treatments and cocktail making were really good and the cottage was amazing. I would definitely recommend going there.

We had a fantastic time and thank you for all your help

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the weekend, we all had a great time and very impressed with the chef and meal which was delicious.

Ellen H, Home Cottage, Leeds & Sheffield, 14 Jun 13

Good morning!!

Just wanted to say what a truly amazing time our party had over the weekend!

We arrived around 4pm on Friday & instantly felt so content & at home in such beautiful surroundings that we’d actually forgotten what we’d had planned that evening.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our spa treatments & couldn’t fault the professionalism of our therapists.

Nick, our minibus driver on Saturday was lovely. He gave us quite the tour on our way into Bath & explained the local history & the who’s who of the area.

We decided to stay in on the Saturday evening as we’d each taken so many bottles of wine and loved our home from home so much, we wanted to make the most of it.

Caesar from The Bartender was amazing & a huge credit to the company he represents. He was fun, enthusiastic, informative & happy to join in our playful manner.

We were so reluctant to leave the farmhouse but cannot wait to book our next getaway with Acacia Cottages.

I hope that some of this has been useful & I genuinely cannot wait to book with Acacia again.

Kind regards,

I just wanted to thank you for helping us organise my sisters’ hen party. The weekend was a great success and everyone had a fantastic time.

I particularly would like to praise the catering company who came in on Saturday to cook for us. They were absolutely amazing and the food was to die for.

Charlie M, Meadows and Woodlands Farmhouse, Oxfordshire, 7 Jun 13

Just to say thank you for helping in the fabulous weekend we have had in York.

The dance teacher and chef were amazing.

Sarah S, York Townhouse, 31 May 13

We had an incredible time thank you. The cottage was stunning and every element of the weekend ran completely to plan so we can’t thank you enough. The spa was also incredible and we were so lucky with the weather.

We would absolutely recommend it to anyone!

Thank you for all your help in arranging the weekend.

Liana G, Chew Magna Farmhouse with Spa, Bath, 31 May 13

We had an absolutely amazing time, the accommodation was so beautiful and huge- everyone was gobsmacked by it- Dot was so welcoming and helpful. No one wanted to leave!!

The cocktail guy was fantastic- nicknamed Mr Man by the group! He was so funny, entertaining and got everyone involved. Again everyone loved this – originally I thought he would be really tight with the amount of alcohol we could use but he was so accommodating and even left us a pitcher of remaining alcohol! Loved him!

It’s a Knock Out was brilliant, the weather helped, everyone laughed so much – lots of leg crossing to control our bladders due to uncontrollable laughter!

The dinner Saturday night was incredible – everyone was amazed at the standard of food, it was like being at a restaurant. We got some tips of recipes!! Again very accommodating – ESP as they cleared the kitchen afterwards and prepared the dinner table which we weren’t expecting!

All in all the girls feedback was that it was the best hen they had been on, and that was down to you-so thank you so much for organising this! We got some lovely pictures of the experience too, so great memories!!

Thanks so much, I will be recommending to as many people as possible! I have another sister so in a couple of years I’ll probably be back – so you’ll have catered for all three of our hen do’s!!!

Emma W, Somerset Stone Farmhouse, Bath, 31 May 13

We were all very impressed with the cottage and the garden. The bride particularly liked the whirlpool bath and the conservatory.

The pampering ladies were lovely and I was also very impressed with Cotswold Trail Riding, they gave us the full hour of riding even though we got lost on the way and turned up late.

All in all we had a fabulous weekend, thank you for organising it!

Claire L, Simply Stunning, Gloucestershire, 31 May 13

It was a fantastic hen thank you. Couldn’t have been better and everything went without a hitch.
