An indulgent Spa Day (or weekend)
Why not book a Spa Day at one of our Suffolk Hotels? You can be pampered, spoilt & cossetted whilst sipping champagne with the gals - what's not to like?

For extra privacy, enjoy your very own 9 seater Canadian hot tub and sauna area with a weekend away at the beautiful Suffolk Retreats in Hundon. Set in 9 acres of private grounds you can enjoy staying in a luxury yurt or at the converted Granary. Catering from parties between 10-24 people, this is an excellent way to spoil a very lucky hen.

Here's another great hen party idea for the ultimate daytime spa experience you can’t beat the SK Clinic + Spa in Bury St Edmunds.

High Lodge clay

Set amongst 100 acres of Suffolk countryside close to the Suffolk coast, High Lodge Leisure is a sporty hens dream come true. As well as a 50 acre, 9 hole golf course there are two well stocked fishing lakes to choose from, archery lessons and even clay pigeon shooting! High Lodge has a variety of hen packages (based on a minimum of 10 hens) to choose from which combine food and activities, or smaller groups packages can be created on request.

A weekend at the beach
With stretches of beautiful beach famed the world over and a delightful selection of pretty coastal villages to choose from, a Suffolk beach break makes a picture perfect hen weekend. Suffolk's most popular coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold each have a wide selection of bed & breakfasts, hotels and holiday cottages to choose from as well as an endless selection of vintage boutiques to browse in.

Or for a quiet break off the beaten track the delightfully situated The Westleton Crown has tastefully furnished rooms and a delicious menu too. Positioned between Southwold and Aldeburgh you can explore both towns easily, and then retreat to the Crown for a first class dinner & relaxing break.

Planning the perfect Hen Parties in Suffolk? Why not consider:

Afternoon tea and cake
Afternoon tea

What could be more delightful than a traditional afternoon tea in a quintessential Suffolk Country Hall? Originally the brainchild of Duchess of Bedford (Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Victoria), afternoon tea was devised as a solution to what the Duchess believed was an intolerable length of time between luncheon and evening dinner. So we have the Duchess to thank for the sumptuous Afternoon spread which might include a selection of teas, assorted finger sandwiches, scones with cream and preserves, and a selection of cakes, pastries and tartlets.




Cooking masterclass
If you're looking for something classy and different for your Hens then let The Cooking Club organise a really special half or full day of cookery around any number of themes, from the Great British Bake Off to great British seasonal produce. Based at the Suffolk Food Hall, you can enjoy your complimentary glass of fizz overlooking the River Orwell. Prices start at around £40 a head for a half day or £70 a head for a whole day (based on minimum of 12 attendees). Get in touch to find out more The Cooking Club
