White Cottage

Hi, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for a wonderful weekend in Blagdon. The Bride and rest of the hens had a fantastic time. The cottage was perfect for what we needed and set in such a beautiful location. Big thanks also to Viv who gave some of the girls (me included) such relaxing treatments. We ate at both the pubs, and the food was fantastic, such lovely local pubs. Thank you so much for all your help in planning and organising this. It really helped make the weekend perfect. I hope to come and visit again soon! Sarah


Thanks for a great stay in the White Cottage, we had the best time! The cottage itself is beautiful and we fell in love with the amazing views. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. Huge thanks to Renee and Ady, nothing seemed to be too much trouble and you really went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect for us! Fabulous hosts, highly recommended! Claire


We have just got back from our weekend stay in the white cottage. It was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! Tracy and Renee and Adrian were happy to help with any questions we had before our arrival and the cottage was beautiful and very clean! Our meal on the first night was delicious the next day we loved the hot tub, go wild and posh frocks&wellies activities. We filled the rest of our time with games that we had bought with us and enough chill time in between. I would definitely recommend the cottage for a hen weekend with something to suit everyone ! Thank you so much Katie xx


Well its been a week since my daughters Hen and I cant recommend The White Cottage enough, beautiful inside and out, just perfect. Julie xxxxx


Just had an absolutely fantastic weekend in the country. Thank you ladies and Adrian for all of your help organising. The Welly walk was brilliant, a great activity to split up the day finishing at a beautiful pub. The cottage was lovely, clean, tidy with great views and Steve the minibus driver is an absolute legend! Our bride thoroughly enjoyed herself. We will be back! Laura


We’ve just had the most magical weekend staying at White Cottage through Weekend In The Country. The cottage itself was STUNNING! Our bride to be was over the moon and loved the decor & location. The views to wake up to in the morning were fabulous! We also booked a minibus through Tracy at Weekend In The Country and our driver Steve was a joy! No waiting around or delays, we were straight into Bath and picked up on time at the end of the day. The whole weekend has been fantastic and we would definitely recommend this company to others! Elise


Special thanks to Tracey and rest of weekend in the country team who helped me organise an unforgettable hen weekend in the gorgeous white cottage. I will recommend to anyone and would love to come back! Stunning views and made some fantastic memories. The meal included at the cottage was lovely and the table decorations were loved by all within our hen group along with the goody bags and hot tub! Sylvia





We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Hannah's hen doo!! All of the activities were lovely and the barn was a perfect place to have a boogie and play all the the party games!! The hot tub and sauna were fab, but best of all the team were amazing, thank you Renee for the attention to detail and your genuine care in is all having a positive experience. Jennifer


Would definitely recommend to others looking for hen do destinations, attention to detail is great & the actual glamping site is ideal for groups! Dinner provided for one night was lovely & easy to cook ourselves whenever we wanted it.
The school sports day activity was a great ice breaker for all of us and got us chatting to the whole group! Adrian was brilliant at spurring us on and making us laugh! The posh frocks and wellies trail is very well done (even though we did take a wrong turn and went the long way round!) The New Inn food was lovely!
Very welcoming & always on the end of the phone should we have needed anything !!! THANK YOU ! :) Lauren


Wow!!! Weekend in the country team, thank you so much for hosting my hen party. You were all so helpful and lovely. We all had the best weekend. I would highly recommend coming here and make sure you take part in the Go Wild activity and the silent disco. Kage


What a fabulous weekend that my beautiful bridesmaids planned in secret for me. I had no clue what I was doing until I got there.My instructions included a posh frock and wellies, and I was not disappointed with the reason behind this!
Everything about the weekend was perfect, I loved how rustic everything was and we had perfect weather to go with it.
Would definitely recommend to anyone. I’ve made some of the best memories here. Mollie


Amazing time for my sister’s hen weekend! Such a gorgeous setting and cute facilities...exceeded our expectations. Adrian and Renee who run it were very friendly and helpful. The silent disco was a scream! I personally hate camping but would go glamping here again! Highly recommend it! Zoe


We had such a great weekend here a couple of weekends ago for my sisters hen do! From word go, Tracy was so helpful with all of our enquiries and it was lovely to meet both Tracy and Renee while were there as they were both so brilliant throughout the whole experience. The facilities were great and the setting was beautiful - a perfect country weekend! The food was great and lovely to have some fizz to go with it! Most importantly, my sister had a brilliant hen weekend! Thank you. Maisie


A huge thank you to Tracy, Renee and Adrian...absolutely amazing weekend for my beautiful and dear friend, Tracy, who will be walking down the aisle in just a few weeks! From the first moments exploring and booking and right through till the end, the Weekend In the Country team have been informative, friendly, kind, professional and full of great ideas! The actual glamp site was outstanding with superb facilities and a personal touch. The surrounding area is beautiful and even the taxis (organised through the team) followed the same ethos as the rest of the team: friendly, informative, funny and lovely :). We loved the wellies & posh frocks walk and found a beautiful spot for a well-earned picnic. Spa facilities were great and the food provided was seriously fabulous!! Yum!! Amazing Aberdeen Angus beef lasagne and chicken enchiladas with salad and fresh bottles of bubbles. Great quality food...thank you so much.

All in all, us girls enjoyed a relaxing break in a beautiful place with attention to detail and an understanding of need. Beautiful decor and warm communal living spaces too...thank you!! Laura


Fabulous weekend away, silent disco was an absolute blast, accommodation exceeded our expectations, posh frocks and wellies walk was great fun also, loved every minute of it! Ashleigh


SUCH a fun weekend for my best friend’s festival-themed Hen Do! The bell tents and barn room were so pretty with the bunting and fairy lights and our 80s-themed silent disco was HILARIOUS (highlight: dancing in the field under the stars)! The barn and little gravel area in front was a great place to hang out, dance, play silly games and eat bacon sarnies to cure our hangovers! Renee and Adrian were great - they left us to it but were never far away if we needed them! Thanks for a great weekend! :) Anya


I literally don't know where to start with how much I loved this weekend! Everything was awesome from the beautiful bell tents to the gorgeous barn which was even better than I pictured.
The posh frocks walk was hilarious! The 'steps' were a little unclear in places, but for me (as I have a weird sense of humour) it just made it even more entertaining. Adrian made us laugh loads whilst we were foraging for wild stuff to make wild booze and the silent disco made a great weekend even better!
Plus the fact we had to walk up a country lane in our swimming costumes and raincoats to get to the hot tub was just the icing on top of the cake for me! Laughs aplenty!
All of the information on the webpage and from comms with Tracy was clear so we knew we had to bring more toilet roll and towels etc. Tracy, Adrian and Renee have been so personable and lovely, nothing has been too much trouble, and I have no question that if there had been anything we hadn't been happy with, they would have bent over backwards to sort it out.
Thanks you so much WITC...I will be back xxx Vikki

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for having us at the weekend! My sister loved her hen weekend and we all enjoyed our first glamping experience! The whole weekend was stress free and you were on hand when needed throughout the weekend.

I absolutely loved the goody bags!!!!! As did all the girls, and thank you for making sure my mum was looked after too with her bad foot. I could go on for much longer saying lots of lovely things about you all so just THANK YOU!!!!

I hope to find an excuse to visit again in the White cottage next. A million thanks again! Gemma x


"Thank you soo much for having us!

We have made some memories for life.

Love Zoe's hens,"


We loved the whole weekend so it is very hard to pick out one thing and of course each hen may say something different. But for me, as the organiser, I was really impressed with the quality of the food included. If I knew it was going to be so good I wouldn't have brought so much.  

The pre booking service (friendliness, personal service and organisation), accommodation and surrounding area were also all first class. Just to say a massive Thank You. Kate, our bride, and the whole hen party had a wonderful weekend.  

As the organiser of the group my job was made so easy due to the service offered by yourselves. This included talking through the accommodation before booking, the booking process, for you arranging the taxi (who were also really friendly and professional) and the service whilst we were there. Thank you.  Suzanne




What a great way to start the week with a lovely FB message from Karen who stayed at the White Cottage for her daughter's hen weekend:

"1 Hen and 14 chicks had the best hen weekend ever. Thank you all at weekend in the country for making sure this was a weekend full of fun, laughter and memories that will stay with us for a very long time. All 15 of us would highly recommend weekend in the country for any family or friends celebrations gathering."

Karen's feedback: Would you recommend us? "Definitely! All 15 of us had an amazing weekend, it was just perfect. The cottage was easy to get to with some great views and the parking space was generous. The cottage had everything you needed and was very well kept and clean, we all totally enjoyed the meal that was left for us on the first night it was very tasty.

The spa was refreshing and it was nice to just relaxed with great company, however the weather did not want to be on our side for the Go Wild Activity, Bear (our name for our activity leader) was amazing, he just kept us all motivated and laughing throughout the morning, so what could have been a washout turned out to be a morning full of fun, laughter and eating things I never thought we would eat.

The Komedia night out went like a dream, the transport arrived on time, there and back, the meal at the event was very good and the comedians were entertaining. We then enjoyed 2 hours of none stop dancing to finish the night off, then carried the hen home.

I would like to thank Tracy for all her support in helping me organise my daughters hen weekend. This was truly a fantastic memorable weekend that will stay with us all for many years to come.

Thank you." 



"Thank you soo much for having us!

Love Zoe's hens," 19-21 May 2017 


We loved having the barn as well as the tents it was a really nice space.

Everyone loved everything about the weekend.

We would definitely recommend. 

Many thanks 





We've just come back from a weekend booking at the White Cottage.

What a fabulous, fabulous weekend!

Great cottage, fab food, great activities... just fantastic value for money!

Will be recommending to everyone.

We had such a great time. xx" Laura 12-14 May 2017


Glamping 2017

We all loved the accommodation, it was perfect size for the 7 of us. We all really enjoyed our time in the garden spa and thought it was a really nice touch. The posh frocks walk was also lots of fun, the location of the pub was perfect for a pub lunch. Really loved everything.

Would you recommend us? Absolutely - may be returning for my own hen do in the new year!!!

Are there any other comments or suggestions you would like to make? Beforehand communication was great (Thanks Tracy :). Facilities and extra activities were perfect. Location is stunning. We left with one very happy (and a little overwhelmed) bride.

Thank you all 


White Cottage 2017


I just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful weekend.

The White Cottage is lovely and everyone had a fantastic weekend. 

Thanks again, I'll definitely be recommending Weekend In The Country to all of my friends. 

Many thanks,



Lily Glampsite

Thank you for a great hen weekend! We loved Lily Glampsite! Here are some pics... Vicky & the hens x

These girls absolutely smashed the 'posh frocks & wellies' challenges, including getting a selfie with some Yeo Valley farmers! ;)


Everything was just amazing, but Renee stood out for all of us as being so helpful, enthusiastic and flexible that it made the whole weekend run so smoothly - alongside being so much fun!! Was there one thing that was poor or you thought we, or our suppliers, didn’t do well? Nope! Would you recommend us? Absolutely, already have :) Just to reiterate that our whole group had a fantastic experience and look forward to seeing you again we hope! Ellie


Thanks to all at weekend in the country - you have been incredibly helpful from my initial enquiry right through to the hen weekend. We all had a brilliant weekend and I will be sure to recommend you to friends and come back to you should I be in charge of organising another hen party!

Would you recommend us? Definitely 

What did you think of our pre-weekend administration/telephone conversations/helpfulness: Excellent 

Private dining at the hotel was brilliant - the room was perfect for our group and the hotel staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The private dining room made a fantastic evening. The food was lovely and it was nice to have our own private space to chat and play games.

Posh frocks and wellies - we all really enjoyed this however one part of the route near the end was quite overgrown and difficult to pass. The instructions given were easy to follow and the photo check list was lots of fun.

Thank you very much for making organising my friends hen do so easy and for making it a brilliant weekend. She had a fantastic time and the activities and accommodation were perfect for our group.

Karen, Bristol hotel, July 2016


Birthday Weekend

I would like to say a massive thank you for my 40th birthday weekend. Everything went really smoothly, the hotel was lovely the staff were great and the food was fantastic. We also absolutely loved the posh frocks and wellies walk and the weather stayed kind to us so we all had a ball. 

Was there one thing you thought was particularly good about your weekend? Everything. But I have to say I was very, very impressed by the standard of the hotel. I couldn't fault it and they were so helpful because on the Saturday afternoon i changed the time of our meal from 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm and they were very accommodating. Excellent service. 

Was there one thing that was poor or you thought we, or our suppliers, didn’t do well? No!  I thought you planned and catered for everything and the information given in the Posh Frocks and wellies walk was really informative. 

Would you recommend us? Absolutely. :-) 

Kind regards, 

Tracey (Bristol / Bath hotel)

Cheltenham hotel

In response to your feedback request for the weekend we had at the countryside Cheltenham hotel. 

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by the reception staff who were very efficient and all our rooms were ready and all next door to each other, our luggage was delivered by porter we didn't have to lift a finger!

Our rooms were lovely and clean and beds very comfortable. We all had goodie bags on the bed complete with pressies and balloons. Your welcome pack for posh frocks and wellies was in my room ready for perusal. Sally the bride to be had beautiful flowers in her room. We had a a quick room set up and met downstairs for a cuppa on the patio which was ordered and delivered by the staff who arranged our time for dinner and choice of pre dinner drinks. We chose Bellini's from the choice. After a quick change and unpack we met downstairs for 7.15 where we were served our drinks and lovely canapes. The staff in every instance were lovely and very attentive, nothing was too much trouble.

The table for dinner as requested was set up in the restaurant as we were only 6 in number (note private dining usual option). The table was fully decorated, games etc and loads of balloons when the photos arrive back I will forward you some copies. We had the full menu choice at our disposal and also two bottles of Rose compliments of the management arrived for us. We all had different three courses and I have to say its was lovely and clean plates all round. we sat over the table all night just chatting and ready for a good nights rest by then.

The management arranged for our breakfast table to be the same for the morning with the addition of the two girls who would be arriving by breakfast. The breakfast was buffet style but it was very good and as good as I have had in 5 star hotels. Again the staff were always so nice and very attentive. We again sat over our tables till we were ready for the posh frocks and wellies challenge.

We all dressed up and met in the lobby and off we went. It was a very nice and chilled way to explore the countryside and ok for all our party and enabled the ladies that didn't know each other to interact. Photos were taken and many laughs were had, we had lunch in the local pub that the hotel booked for us, the table was reserved and again we were treated as VIPS.

On the return journey the heavens opened and somehow it seemed to make it even more special, we returned to brilliant sunshine at the hotel where again we had a cuppa on the lawn before retiring to our rooms for a siesta and change for our evening out at the Everyman theatre for 'That'll be the day' production after a Cafe Rouge pre theatre dinner. It was very good and I would recommend the theatre for a visit maybe for the mid aged groups you may send to this destination. We returned to the hotel for about 11.30 but it was all quiet so we returned to one room and then called the night porter who brought us up some tea and coffee with no complaint. We decided to meet a little later for breakfast so we all had a lie in and the breakfast again was very nice and very plentiful. We checked out and sadly left the hotel to return to Hertfordshire. In summing up the whole weekend the hotel treated us like VIPS  and dealt with everything in a professional manner and we all had a great time. 










Will forward the photos for you as soon as I get the copies.

Thanks again for a great girlie weekend.

Thank you very much.

We had a fantastic time - the bride loved it. 

Please also pass on my thanks to Adrian for the walk and cider and cheese tasting.

Glamping 2015

Hi Renee,

Thanks for your email. We had a super weekend, it all went really well.

I will post some pics to your Facebook group in the coming days when I get a chance to go through them.  This is one of my favourites though, attached.  We were SO lucky with the weather!

Best wishes,



Thanks for your email and sorry it has taken me so long to reply!!  I have attached just a couple of my favourite photos of the weekend! We had such a great time.

Was there one thing that was particularly good?

The glampsite was beautiful and so well equipped - it made the weekend really enjoyable for all of us. It was great to have the option of being outside in tents or inside by the heater in the barn!

Was there one thing we didn’t do well and could improve?

The admin process beforehand - I found it quite frustrating. Everyone was absolutely lovely and helpful when I spoke to you, but it often took a while for someone to answer my calls. (Note – as a result of this feedback we have introduced a separate customer services telephone line specifically to look after all our groups once booked)

Would you recommend us?  Yes, definitely 

Accommodation was perfect for us - the location was beautiful, and it was very, very beautifully presented - much nicer than I expected!! We stayed in the barn glampsite and I wasn't sure what to expect of the barn - you should put more pictures on your website to promote how well equipped, clean and pretty it is! I loved all the little decorative touches. Facilities were good, much better than expected for glamping - working toilets and showers etc.

The tents were great, the air-beds were super comfy and didn't deflate at all over the weekend. Tents were big enough for people to gather in them, get changed etc. We could stand up fully and get dressed which was a bonus!

Also, Renee was lovely and firstly offered us an upgrade to a cottage if we wanted it (unfortunately we had to say no as the bride LOVES camping!) and also let us use the adjacent barn so we could get together and do a yoga session in the morning which was great and really made the weekend feel a bit special and different. I really appreciate how accommodating you all were!

Just to say the weekend was great! The bride absolutely loved it and I don't think we could have found a more perfect spot for a bit of luxury camping in some gorgeous countryside!

Pop Up Little Barn

Hi Renee and Adrian,

Thank you very much for helping to make my sister's hen weekend as great as it turned out to be! You could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. 

We would love to come back, the cottage with the hot tub sounds particularly appealing! We'll certainly bear this in mind. 

Thank you again,

Sarah x

Pop Up Little Barn

Hi Renee, Adrian and Tracy

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for a wonderful weekend with you – it couldn’t have been better and Katy the bride to be absolutely LOVED it, she can’t stop raving about it. 

Thanks again


17 July 2015



Firstly, thank you so much for a lovely weekend. We all thorough enjoyed it and what a beautiful place to spend a weekend! You are very lucky you get to enjoy the scenery all year! 

Please see below my answers to your questions- I will also put something on you fb page when I get 5 mins as would whole heartedly recommend you. 

Was there one thing you thought was particularly good about your Hen weekend?The hot tub, the scenery and the walk to the pub/ the pub itself- what a setting! 

Was there one thing that was poor or you thought we, or our suppliers, didn’t do well?The only thing I would say is that it was a little unclear about the bedding situation in the caravan. It was specified as to what was not included in the bell tent, but then nothing was mentioned in regard to the caravan which lead me to believe that nothing was needed- might just be me, but may be good to clarify. 

Would you recommend us? Definitely :)

How would you assess the pre-weekend administration/telephone conversations/helpfulness of office staff?

Very good - friendly, helpful and attentive.

How would you assess the arrival/meet & greet?

Great -  clear and helpful. 

What did you think of your accommodation – location/decoration/facilities/views/etc?

Loved it :) 

What did you think of your accommodation - cleanliness/preparation/heating/etc?

Lovely  :)

Please comment on your activity (if you had an activity with us) & instructor?

The posh frocks and wellies was brilliant. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and the pub was such a treat at the end - what a place!! I still can't get over the view from the pub garden! The staff there were also very accommodating. The directions/ picture book worked really well and we found our way with ease.  The photo game was really fun and provided lots of giggles along the way! 

Please comment on your transport (minibus, taxis, etc)?


Thanks again for everything -  I'm so pleased that my sister had such a lovely weekend :) 



10 July 2015



Thank you so much for our stay. The property is stunning and I'm so glad I chose to stay with you. 

All the loved it and we had so much fun. Everyone felt at home in the cottage it was amazing. 

The pamper girls were lovely and everyone enjoyed their treatments. The bride said it was the best massage and facial she has ever had. Can you please pass this onto the pamper company. 

Thank you again and we would love to come back at some point in the future 


19 June 2015


Dear Renee and Adrian, 

Firstly I would just like to thank you for a wonderful stay at the barn glampsite at the weekend, we all had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food provided for our BBQ was delicious and just what we needed. 

Will was fantastic in our sports day and we all had a great laugh with him Saturday morning. 

We were all very impressed with your little village it is a very beautiful place, with amazing views. We were a little apprehensive about going into the village pub for lunch in case we didn't get a warm welcome from being out of town but the staff were extremely friendly and the food and service was amazing and we all had a very lovely enjoyable lunch. 

Once again we would like to thank you for your warm welcome, it is a very enjoyable set up that you have. 

Take care and best wishes,

Dear Renee and Adrian,

Thank you so very much for the use of your fantastic facilities this weekend. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The house is perfect for entertaining such a group and in such glorious surroundings. The hot tub this morning was ideal to soak up the scenery around.

The frocks and wellies walk went down so well and the pub is a delightful little pub and they really looked after us and catered for all our needs.

An extra thank you for the effort with the celiac meal, it was a real hit and I felt jealous not to be vegetarian as it was delicious.

I just want to add here that I think I left some bunting up in the dining room and living space. I am very sorry about this, it is tied up with elastic and I just have no memory of taking it down so it must still be there!

Once again, a big thank you.

Kind regards,



5 June 2015


Renee & Adrian,

Thank you both so much for a fantastic weekend. We all had a wonderful time in beautiful surroundings especially the hen. The personalised Posh Frocks & Wellies booklets were great and something that Gem can keep. You couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming.

We'll be back again!

Best wishes



Was there one thing you thought was particularly good about your Hen weekend?

Renee and Adrian (comment: Thanks, we loved you too! :) )

Was there one thing that was poor or you thought we, or our suppliers, didn’t do well?


Would you recommend us?


How would you assess the pre-weekend administration/telephone conversations/helpfulness of office staff?

We got a little confused at times re: bedding but everyone was so helpful and polite. (comment: we have clarified on the web site that only pillows & pillowcases are included; documents we send out prior to arrival state that bedding can be made available if required, this group subsequently hired bedding) 

How would you assess the arrival/meet & greet?

Welcoming, friendly, couldn't do enough for us 

What did you think of your accommodation – location / decoration / facilities / views / etc?

Beautiful location, lovely tents, duvets etc. good shower and toilet facilities, the barn was great, it had everything we needed. 

What did you think of your accommodation – cleanliness/preparation/heating/etc?

Very clean, contained all info we needed, 2 heaters in the barn was perfect.

Please comment on your activity (if you had an activity with us) & instructor?

The Posh frocks and wellies was fantastic, a beautiful walk and Adrian's personalised leaflets were fantastic. The pub lunch was lovely too.

Please comment on your transport (minibus, taxis, etc if booked with us)?

Steve was great, really accommodating and patient! The other taxis to and from the train station were on time, helpful and reliable.

Are there any other comments or suggestions you would like to make?

Keep doing what you're doing, we will definitely be back. 


29 May 2015


Hi Renee and Adrian. 

I have been meaning to email to say thank you for helping make our hen weekend so enjoyable. We all had a fab weekend , the bride to be absolutely loved it. 

The venue and location was perfect. It was so nice not having to drive anywhere. The barn and facilities were great and very clean. 

Everyone  seemed to have a good giggle on the activity , although a 10am start was a bit tricky ! (We managed eventually apart from 1 !) 

I found all the info you gave was very clear and would definitely recommend you. 

Have a great ( and very busy - I am sure) summer. And thanks again.


24 May 2015

Size of tents, barn facilities, toilet/shower facilities

Was there one thing that was poor or you thought we, or our suppliers, didn’t do well?

Would you recommend us? 


How would you assess the pre-weekend administration/telephone conversations/helpfulness of office staff?

Very thorough, efficient. I didn't need to ask any questions as was explained well. 

How would you assess the arrival/meet & greet?

Great. Paul was very nice/on time/ and didn't mind a bit of drunken singing on the way home

Are there any other comments or suggestions you would like to make?

22 May 2015


We had a fantastic time thank you so much. The bride is sad she'll never have another weekend as fun again! All the girls loved it, even the anti campers embraced it!  I forgot to tell you we could hear a little critter of some description in the roof above the showers scrabbling around? (comment from us - we have a squirrel family living in the chestnut tree just outside the barn :) )

Was there one thing you thought was particularly good about your weekend?

*The personal touch and all the little extras added that special feel  

Was there one thing that was poor or you thought we, or our suppliers, didn’t do well?


Would you recommend us? *Absolutely. 100%

How would you assess the pre-weekend administration/telephone conversations/helpfulness of office staff? *everyone was so helpful and human. Lovely to deal with people who aren't robots and actually appreciate their customers 

How would you assess the arrival/meet & greet? *Fantastic. Adrian was with us within seconds! 

What did you think of your accommodation – location/decoration/facilities/views/etc? * A truly beautiful setting. The barn felt really special, all the ornaments /lights/ decorations made it feel really homely and comfortable. We felt at home from the minute we arrived! The beef lasagne was delicious! 

What did you think of your accommodation – cleanliness/preparation/heating/etc? *All fantastic! Couldn't fault anything.  

Please comment on your activity (if you had an activity with us) & instructor? *Will did sports day with us & as the pregnant photographer it was a joy to watch.  So much laughter it was hilarious.  Even the hungover hens joined in and went for it, with a few breaks to pull themselves together haha! Will was lovely he was confident without being cocky like some instructors can be. He felt like an extra hen! He was really sweet and everyone loved the activities! 

Are there any other comments or suggestions you would like to make? 

*Maybe some more solar lights leading towards the barn from the tents for those midnight trips to the loo. (comment from us - we limit outside lighting as we are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the darker it is the better for star-gazing... we do suggest bringing torches!)

Thank you again it was a beautiful weekend and the bride was super happy.  Organising it was  made easier with the help of the team, I didn't even pull any hair out!

Dear Adrian and Renee 

Thank you so much for a brilliant weekend. We all had such an amazing time, the White cottage is gorgeous and was perfect for the hen weekend. 

Thank you Adrian for the cider and cheese tasting. Your funny stories and knowledge were great. I managed to give my sister the perfect hen party with exactly what she wanted. 

Our night out at Komedia was brilliant, our evening was finished off with a sing along with Steve the mini bus driver. He was very tolerant of our not so pitch perfect rendition of cheesy girly songs, (which were from steve's iPod!!) we were well impressed.  

Thank you for making the organising so easy. We all want to do it all over again!

White Cottage

Thanks for the fab hen weekend. Hen was very happy and everyone had a lovely time.

The 2 activities that were arranged through Weekend in the Country really made it exciting and special. It was so convenient to have them both starting from our doorstep too.

Office staff were wonderful, very helpful and polite. 

Fantastically gorgeous location. The White Cottage was lovely.

The Go Wild activity was wonderful, I can see why this is a firm favourite. Our instructor was Will who was really lovely. He struck just the right balance between cheekiness (suitable for hen party) and professionalism. He had a lovely manner with all the ladies and seemed to know his stuff when it came to the foraging and fire-starting.

Posh frocks and wellies was great fun. The personalised picture trail was a lovely touch - we gave it to the hen (who has a terrible sense of direction) and told her that she had to get us to the pub, it was hilarious.

Thanks so much for a very lovely, very different hen weekend. I think you're doing a great job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Weekend in the Country.

Hi all

Sorry in delay of replying to feedback but just to say would definitely highly recommend weekendinthecountry 

Hen house was lovely and all guests absolutely loved it. The only hitch we had was two of the guests didn't have towels and I know we could have rung the owner but we worked our way round it and did not want to bother her on her lovely holiday.

The mini bus driver was fantastic and I know we had a little hitch but that was kindly and quickly sorted for us. Although the plan had to go shopping pre cocktails, it just meant that we didn't spend anymore money that we shouldn't lol so was not a major issue. Plus it will be just another excuse to return.

Thank you for the great communication and I am hoping to start my venue styling late July at just one venue but I will be definitely recommending you for any lovely hens looking for something different.

Kind regards

Thanks again

Hi Renee And Adrian 

Thank you for a very warm and welcoming weekend we all had a great time! And the extra touches were fabulous. We can't thank you enough for going the extra mile with dietary requirements and Anne loved her food!

We were only discussing out next trip with your new sauna! 

Kind regards

Thanks Renee and Adrian,

We had an absolutely amazing weekend the bride to be and all the hens loved the barn and our activity, thank you so much. 

There might be some ice creams in the freezer....

Was there one thing you thought was particularly good about your weekend?

Bush tucker trial

Was there one thing that was poor or you thought we, or our suppliers, didn’t do well?

All was fantastic but if there was one thing some garden furniture being provided would be useful.

Would you recommend us?

Yes definitely 

How would you assess the pre-weekend administration/telephone conversations/helpfulness of office staff?

Really helpful, emails returned very quickly I personally found emailing easier than calling 

How would you assess the arrival/meet & greet?

Excellent very thorough 

What did you think of your accommodation – location/decoration/facilities/views/etc?

Excellent really spacious and lovely setting in the country. Bedrooms great and kitchen fully equipped. Could do with garden furniture for smokers and on hot days to enjoy the garden and views. 

What did you think of your accommodation – cleanliness/preparation/heating/etc?


Please comment on your activity (if you had an activity with us) & instructor?

So much fun and interesting lovely walk across the country and instructor great very passionate about foraging 

Please comment on your transport (minibus, taxis, etc if booked with us)?

Very good and helpful stopping at shop for us on the way 

Are there any other comments or suggestions you would like to make?

I would def recommend this place to anyone. Have already been telling loads of people about it!

Loved the laid back atmosphere and the surrounding areas - having everything in one place for the whole weekend was perfect. 

Everything was pre-planned ahead of trip so nothing to worry about when arriving on site. All staff were really helpful and polite. Made the whole booking so easy and took the stress out of hen planning - thank you.

We were greeted and welcomed and made to feel at home straight away. Everything was explained fully and we were shown around the whole site. Perfect location only a stone's throw away from Bristol (& Bath) but felt like we right in the countryside; views were amazing.

Barn facilities had everything we needed and was decorated beautifully with clean showers/toilet facilities - couldn't have asked for more. Accommodation was perfect, clean with all the essentials needed for the weekend. On arrival the Barn was heated, ready and we were able to just relax in our t-shirts, socks etc.

We all enjoyed the Posh Frocks and Wellies activity and getting all dressed up. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk to the pubs and the challenges set to make it more of an adventure.

Fantastic weekend, enjoyed by all. We all had a ball with lots of giggles and memories made... Would highly recommend and can add it to the diary as an unforgettable weekend. Many thanks to you all xx

Would recommend to family and friends 100%.

Thank you. We had the best time! You are really the hosts with most.

You were both so very helpful & nothing was too much trouble. The pop up barn was ideal with all the equipment we needed. The shower & toilet area are spot on & I think your future plans for the site will be absolutely fab! 

I know all my party feel exactly the same & we all said we would come again. We will certainly be recommending you to all our friends & family. Keep on doing what you’re doing.

Hi Renee - hope you had a brilliant Christmas and a suitably fun New Year's Eve.
We had such a great time in your cottage.  I can't begin to tell you how good it was to get (most of) the family together under one roof and have a proper Christmas together, and we all fell in love with the place - underlined by how sad we all were when it came to leave.  The cottage was just right for all of our needs - you were so kind to have equipped it with stuff you thought we might use - and we just loved being there - it felt like home.  We made it down to the pub quite a few times and walked around the lake, up the Coombe and around Chew Valley Lake - but still plenty more to explore...  Mainly we just enjoyed all being together in the house - the girls' loved their rooms and we'll all miss pulling back the curtains in the morning to look out over the valley and listening to the owls at night.  Coming back to the 'reality' of normal life was a bit of a shock, I can tell you...
Sadly, Mum didn't make it for Christmas, so this put a slight dampener on things - but just means we'll have to come back with her fit and well and do it all over again!  She'd love it and it would have been perfect for her.
Please thank Adrian for the bike hire too - it was just perfect being able to head out in the morning and not only get some (much-needed) exercise but also to explore the area a little more.
So yes, we'd absolutely love to return at some point - and I'm already thinking of bringing both my partner to the area (she'd love it) and organising a potential (road) bike stay at some point with some like-minded friends - some of the roads in the area had me salivating (perhaps when it's a bit drier...)
Hope all good with you both, and look forward to catching up with you again in the not-too-distant...
Happy New Year!

Thank you both for the most fantastic weekend which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Laura hasn't stopped talking about her weekend since she's been home! Was perfect for her. I'm sure many of our group will want to return, I certainly will. Feedback below.

Take care, Kim x 

Both Adrian & Renee were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble! The cider & cheese tasting was fab! Everything was fantastic. 

Renee was very helpful, especially when we got a little lost, and she was there to greet us on arrival. Very good meet and greet service. 

Location was beautiful and secluded. Everyone was so impressed with the space and decoration of the barn. Photos don't do it justice. Tents nice and comfortable, loved the bunting! Very clean and well equipped.

Everyone love the cider and cheese tasting. Was very informative and Adrian was great. Thought the gift for my sister was such a lovely touch. And I loved my chilli jam! Pregnant ladies also very well catered for!

Minibus driver very punctual and friendly!

We all had a great weekend and would just like to say thank you for making it so special and memorable! Perfect place for a hen do and Adrian & Renee are perfect hosts!

"Hi Adrian and Renee

I would just like to thank you all for a great weekend. My sister the hen had a great time as did all of us! The cottage was amazing, the location and views were incredible! 

We had a great time all weekend and especially loved the cider and cheese tasting. 

Once again thank you so much.
