Our top pick of properties which welcome Hen & Stag groups


We're always being told how difficult it is to find large holiday lets that welcome in Hen & Stag parties... we once had a girl on the phone who was so relieved to have found somewhere (our lovely accommodation Brook House on the Berkeley Estate) that we thought she was actually going to squeal in delight down the phone! 

With lots of couples choosing to take their do's to the countryside, we've rounded up some of our favourite finds from our friends at Kate & Tom's... 


Something in and around the Cotswolds


Alcester Farmhouse
Alcester Farmhouse - brand new onto the scene this cosy farmhouse sleeps 16 guests. With an outside hot tub but also warming fires and sumptious sofas inside.... it's the perfect place for warm or wet weather (we are in Britain after all)!

Churchill Wood
Churchill Wood - For an intimate gathering of between 12-16 guests and a great location if you have people travelling from all over... Churchill Wood fits the bill perfectly. A rural escape awaits you with a large garden, hot tub at the ready and gorgeous countryside surrounding you. There is plenty to do in the local area too... brave the heights at Go Ape Wyre Forest, head to Worcester for cocktails or go riding by horse back in the local countryside.

Kingham Coach House & Cottages
 Kingham Coach House & Cottages - sleeping 20 guests, this would be perfect for a winter get away when you could make full use of the indoor heated pool & steam room!

Peddington Manor
Peddington Manor - Situated just a short drive from Berkeley Castle and part of the Berkeley Estate, Peddington Manor sleeps upto 20 guests with lots of social space. If you're looking for somewhere you can host a formal dinner party then check out the large dining room. For the stags out there you've got the "Games Barn" too. On a practical note, this property is situated 10 minutes off the M5 so perfect for those travelling by car. Every room can accommodate twin beds too, so no awkward sharing for the chaps!

Something by the coast
River Hall - Perfect for larger groups of up to 30 looking for something on the Devon coast. Those always on the look out for the perfect photo opportunity will just love the spiral staircase and grand atmosphere of River Hall too!

The Old Rectory Country House - If your thinking of a welsh retreat and are up for a drive then this house could be the one for you. Feeling active? Head to the longest toboggan run in Britain or get some fresh air by the seaside with lots to keep the adrenaline seekers amongst you happy.

We've rounded up our favourite properties from Kate & Tom's but we couldn't leave off our very own Brook House aka Berkeley Townhouse. Often referred to as "The Tardis" because it is deceptively large, with views over to the Severn Estuary and the welsh landscape... our lovely townhouse sleeps upto 20 guests. 


Brook House

Explore Bristol or Cheltenham which are both just a short distance away, or spend your time walking in the Cotswold Countryside. Sit down to eat at the ancient dining table which seats 20 or head out onto the patio for a BBQ in the sunshine. 

Previous guests have commented on the beds and bedding being "so comfortable" and the dining table "excellent for large numbers"... a "home away from home" with the "little extra touches much appreciated". 

Stags can walk down the road to the Salutation Inn (CAMRA Gloucestershire Pub of the Year 2015 & 2016) and enjoy a range of ales, some of which are brewed on site! For the Hen's take a look at Calcot Spa where you will be sure to please the bride to be...
