Hen party fun and relaxation at our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages

What a great weekend we just had with Tina’s Hen Party of 17 girlfriends enjoying the relaxing surroundings of our holiday cottages in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. We are getting more and more popular with hen parties who are looking for an alternative to impersonal modern hotels, yet still able to tap into beauty packages and other luxurious treats.

Hen party fun at our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages

Where better to start than with Tina’s Five Star Tripadvisor review following their stay here: “best weekend ever”

“Hen weekend with a difference”
5 of 5 starsReviewed April 19, 2015 NEW
“Couldn’t get on trip advisor quick enough to give Woodfarm barns a five-star rating! I booked the main farmhouse and five of the barns for my hen weekend and it was absolutely perfect. From having local beauticians come in to pamper all seventeen of us, to having a cocktail masterclass evening to get the party started, all sourced by Carl Scott the owner, it couldn’t have been more special.
The wonderful thing about the barns is that, surrounded by beautiful countryside, everyone had the chance to chill out their own way, whether it be relaxing in Deben Barn’s hot tub, going out on a bike ride on one of the bikes provided or just snoozing in the sun in one of the barns little gardens. Every taste was counted for with lots of attention to detail. It was a hen weekend to remember and, once things calm down after the wedding, I’m hoping to return with my new husband for a romantic weekend for two!”

What a write-up! Thanks, Tina!

So, what did they have here?….

We offer a gorgeous, rambling old farmhouse, which sleeps seven but has plenty of room for many more to chill out in and our luxury Suffolk barns all sleep two and are all within the same grounds so it takes seconds to walk back. This enables us real flexibility to cater for up to 19 hen guests, just adding a barn for each two girls.

Aside from the beautiful surroundings of the farmhouse as party central, you have a wonderful open fire and squishy sofas, a large farmhouse kitchen with a range cooker, and three bathrooms so you’re well catered for. Included within the price of every stay is a delicious, locally sourced Welcome Basket including eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread, butter and fruit for you to enjoy a proper Suffolk breakfast! We even leave a jar of cookies so you can enjoy a cuppa and a dunk on arrival!

Delicious Breakfast Basket with every stay in our Suffolk holiday cottages

I believe that I’ve already made the cottages as good as I can so the focus is on providing my guests with the best holiday or short-break experience that I can. The way that I do this is to ensure that we highlight the best local pubs, restaurants, delis, coffee shops, etc., in Suffolk, as well as sourcing local independent businesses that can bring something a little special to you!

Hen party cocktails at our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages

We now have a fabulous team of local ‘partners’ that can help your Hen Break go with a swing and a couple of these were present this weekend for Tina and the girls:

Debbie and her team at The Beauty Barn just around the corner from us. Debbie has done quite a bit now here at Woodfarm and has also had plenty of our guests round to her barn for treatments. She made all the girls very relaxed this weekend, and it was clear they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Bob Scott of Niche Cocktails. This was Bob’s first time working at Woodfarm and he went down an absolut (geddit?) storm! He’d come highly recommended and the girls had a fabulous time.

Michelin Star trained Chef Mark Peters of Just Imagine Foods

Just check out their websites but do give them all a call to tell them that you are looking at staying here and have a chat with them about what they can offer you. They will totally tailor-make a package to suit your needs and budget.

All of our cottages have the ‘Visit England’ Gold Award, reflecting the quality and luxury you can expect here, not to mention our Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for consistently outstanding reviews.

There is a Google Virtual Tour on our website so you can have a good look around every room of every cottage and also virtually walk in between them to get the lay of the land.

For all Hen Party enquiries in our Suffolk holiday cottages please feel free to give me a ring directly on 01449 710032 or 07810 371218.

I look forward to hearing from you.
