Create a sophisiticated and bespoke hen weekend in country house style at The Old Rectory; spacious bedroom suites, high ceilings, woodburning stoves, sea views, sweeping lawns, a private courtyard with a big hot tub - and a long list of ideas to fill your weekend (see our Extras and Things To Do pages). This is definitely one for the more discerning ladies.
Picture an evening starting with drinks and chit chat on the terrace... glasses raised, your gorgeous girls dressed up to the nines, and then moving through to the elegant dining room for a lavish celebratory dinner cooked for you by one of our highly recommended caterers, all rounded off by settling down in front of an open fire to relax and chatter away til the small hours.
Book a pamper afternoon with one of our mobile therapists and enjoy a relaxing massage or a cleansing facial; try a cheeky life drawing class, or a craft session making vintage corsages, garters or bunting; have a giggle with a belly dancing class - and get our portrait photographer to capture those happy moments! Book up for a chilled out pub lunch, or in the warmer months dine alfresco in the beautiful gardens. While away a couple of hours unwinding in the grounds; enjoy a game of croquet on the lawns surrounded by gorgeous scenery with views of the sea. And you'll definitely want to take advantage of that hot tub - imagine sitting back with your best buddies, a velvet sky studded with stars, clear night air .... bliss!
If you want to get out and about take your hens off to the county town of Taunton for some retail therapy; or how about heading to the coast for fish and chips and a bottle of wine or two on the beach? Or a leisurely stroll through the glorious countryside, before returning to The Old Rectory for a sophisticated afternoon tea in the elegant drawing room? You'll make some wonderful memories and have a hen weekend that you'll be talking about for years to come.
