Let’s face it, not everyone wants to go out, get completely legless and not remember anything about their hen night.

This past weekend, Longthorns, near Wareham, Dorset, hosted an alternative hen weekend for 32 ladies. If you’d like details for your own hen weekend or for another celebration, please contact us!

Dorset Hen Weekend

The group stayed at Longthorns from Friday – Sunday. They arrived on Friday evening, where a buffet was laid out for them in the parlour, along with a pop up bar, giving everyone time together to chat and catch up.

They stayed in Longthorns glamping units and loved it!

On Saturday morning, the ladies awoke to coffee and bacon sandwiches. This set them up for a busy day of shooting with Purbeck Shooting School and a delicious cream tea at Moreton Tea Rooms, an alpaca felting workshop at Longthorns and a bbq in the evening with music by Dandy Disco.
