How to choose accommodation for a hen weekend
One of the most important things to consider when planning and booking a hen do is the accommodation for your group. Whilst stag dos often consider their accommodation as the least important part of the weekend (a hostel dorm room for a tenner each seems to be the standard we’ve heard so far…) accommodation for a hen do is MUCH more important.
Hen do accommodation should be a space which reflects the bride and her squad, somewhere you can make your own for a weekend, and somewhere gorgeous where you can assemble your girls for photo opportunities, drinks, games and general fun! And let’s not forget somewhere where you can gather around the breakfast table the morning after to recount the fun from the night before…!
Also, whilst it’s crucial that the accommodation for a hen weekend is gorgeous enough to stay in, it’s often key that it’s located somewhere where it’s great to go out if you want to – then you get the best of both worlds! This is why we think The Hen House is the PERFECT option for a hen weekend, on all counts!
The Hen House has gloriously stylish interiors, sleeping 12 – 14 people in four bedrooms. You can forget about fighting over the bathroom too, as there are three bathrooms! You can really indulge yourselves in our deep-
soak tubs, and as a bonus the top floor bathroom has a free standing bath which you can see the stars from in the evening! Make sure the bride gets first dibs on that one though…. As well as the spacious bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms there is a large dining room, comfy lounge and – the pièce de résistance in the summer – a gorgeous sun-trap of a garden!
The Hen House is based off Gloucester Road, an achingly cool suburb in Bristol with edgy cafes and plenty of spots to drink and dance the night away both along Gloucester Road and further towards the centre in Stokes Croft. Beyond that you’re only a short taxi ride away from other areas of Bristol like Clifton (great for wine bars or a fancy dinner at The Ivy Brasserie), Harbourside (think brunch & drinks by the river!) and the centre of Bristol (where you can bar crawl to your heart’s content – if you do just promise us you’ll try the grapefruit margarita!).

Welcome to the very first blog post from the HenQueens team!
We’re incredibly excited to be launching this blog where we’ll be talking about some of our fantastic suppliers, raving about any fabulous reviews we get, and handing out tips for hen do planning. For our first blog post we’re going to be introducing you to HenQueens in case you’re new to us!
HenQueens is the brainchild of our founder and owner of the beautiful Hen House, Hannah Dean. She had lots of hen do bookings for her house and after talking to a few people she saw a gap in the market for luxury hen weekends on a budget. She also noticed a huge gap in the market for girls who wanted to experience a different sort of hen weekend, and this resulted in the birth of our Sober Sessions! We’ve had huge demand for our bespoke hen party experiences. Women are looking for something different these days, and we’re here to help!
We have now helped lots of hens celebrate their special weekends by locating and booking accommodation and activities for them! Hannah works incredibly hard to select only the best suppliers to partner with, so you can be assured that any workshop or class you book through HenQueens will be of the best quality!
Lots of love, the HenQueens team x
