If you are heading to Gladwins for some fun with the girls, you are in for a treat! There are lots of things that we think make our holiday cottages ideal for hen weekends – let us share some ideas with you…
Oh so indulgent, and totally luxurious! Everything that a happy hen and her entourage needs. Whether it is to have a good girlie gossip over a glass of fizz or to recover after an indulgent evening of too much, a hot tub is the perfect place to be.
VIP Beauty Treatments
Because you are a very important person indeed! Guests at Gladwins can book a VIP slot at Beautique22 to have a rejuvenating facial, a hot stone or aromatherapy massage, and beauty treatments like manis, pedis, and waxing too.
Anyone for tennis or a game of croquet? Organising a little competition between the ladies is a super way to have fun on a hen weekend at Gladwins. There is also an indoor heated pool in case you fancy adding a swimming challenge to the list! Or you could just head straight to the outdoor hot tub and sauna, and leave the activities to other Gladwins guests.
We have two to choose from – the Snack Hamper comes with crackers, cheese and pate, the perfect nibble to accompany our range of hen weekend beverage options from Adnams, a local brewery and spirit maker. Choose from vodka, gin, beer, or a chardonnay or rose fizz! The other hamper, the Breakfast Hamper is particularly good if you get carried away with a tipple or two – it contains milk and bread along with locally produced apple juice, jam, eggs and bacon.
The Finest Finishing Touches
100% Egyptian cotton bed linen, huge, fluffy white towels and natural toiletries are just some of the little touches that add a luxurious twist to our holiday cottages. Chelsworth holiday cottage, which sleeps eight, and Wiston holiday cottage which sleeps 6, both have private hot tubs and log burning stoves, whereas Constable holiday cottage, which also sleeps 6 has a hot tub and wood-chip fired central heating.
If you have any special requests for your hen weekend at Gladwins Farm, please do get in touch. We know plenty of local places where girls can go to have fun, whether that is discovering the local night life or going on a wild outdoor adventure.
