Book a holiday house and have a hen or stag party with friends
Are you the lucky one tasked with organising a hen or stag party for your best friend? Everyone tries to create a memorable event but hopefully for all the right reasons. Book a large holiday home with clean comfortable accommodation and a few amenities that will help your weekend party go with a swing. A house with a swimming pool is top of everyone’s hen or stag weekend list and can be really good fun unless you have friends who plan to drink as much as possible and could be a danger to themselves, in which case, look for accommodation that has a hot tub. A hot tub can be great fun with a small group of friends, chat, laugh and have a wonderful time.
Something else that hen and stag groups look for are local inns and restaurants. To have these within walking distance you really need to book a holiday home in a town such as Matlock or Buxton that have numerous eateries of all types. Matlock has a Wetherspoons which won’t break the bank and will help you keep the costs down.
Parading the bride-to-be or potential groom with a hen or stag group has to be done in a town, it wouldn’t be the same walking down a country road with bemused cows as onlookers.
Make sure that you get the number of bedrooms right
Do double check that the right types of beds are available for your group, some properties may have double beds which count towards the occupancy but do not expect two people who may be strangers to share a bed. That would make the hen or stag weekend in Derbyshire memorable for all the wrong reasons.
Chilling matters at a Hen or Stag Party
Almost every party will involve a fair amount of alcohol so a large refrigerator is necessary to keep all those drinks cool. Only the most luxurious holiday homes will have a wine fridge. An alternative to a lack of space is to bring your own cool bag for beers. Ice for drinks can be purchased at any large supermarket so if you book a holiday home for a Stag party, you might want to add that to your shopping list.
Party games at your holiday accommodation
Silly games are often part and parcel of the pre-wedding party experience. Talk to the property owners, they may well have a variety on the premises. The more mature hen or stag group may prefer to hire entertainers to come to their holiday house to deliver their services. This could be a beauty and pamper session with masseurs and beauticians, a cocktail mixing class or something else that appeals to that particular group of ladies or men.
