Glamping is where it’s at for alternative hen do’s these days and Devon-based company, Babes in the Woods offer a fabulous and totally new concept that will appeal to the more discerning bride to be – champagne and a touch of the wild!
When you go wild with Babes in the Woods, you’ll learn how to make something seasonal to take home. This is a great idea for wedding favours – you learn how to make your own little pots of wild garlic pesto, hedgerow lip balm or hedgerow jam and can then create your own favours for your wedding day.
Babes in the Woods have branched out with a new woodland hen weekend Malvern location for 2013 – think Californian domed tents, champagne and wild swimming. Groups of 8 and 20 can stay in the domed bedrooms with comfy camp beds and a wood lounging area with wood burning stove. Activities include the chance to learn bushcraft skills such as fire and shelter building, ‘wild walks’ of the area, chill out time in front of a roaring fire and even the opportunity for some proper girlie pampering. For brave hens there’s even the chance to sleep out in the wild under a handcrafted shelter.
On the practical side of things this new location means that it’s easily accessible to hens and their friends travelling from Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, London and Bristol, with the nearest train station Gloucester just 20 minutes away.
Come and meet the Babes in the Woods at our Fair in March. They’ll have a brand new launch offer of a free place for the ‘hen’ for groups of over 12 if you book on the day, but have plenty of other options to suit your budget. Check out their website for more details.
With Babes in the Woods, everything is organised so all you have to think about is enjoying yourselves. The California Domes are set up ready for you, meals of local produce are prepared and served to you around a banquet table in your woodland grove and in the morning a ‘breakfast buttie’ can be brought to you in bed as well as a cereal and fruit buffet. The bushcraft experts are on hand to help you release your inner Ray Mears! For early birds there are even optional yoga or meditation sessions which can be arranged before breakfast.
