Top hen weekend activities in Cornwall

If you’re planning a hen weekend in Cornwall, look no further. We’ve pulled together some of our favourite group activities for a fabulous weekend away with the girls to get you started.

Find your bliss in one of Cornwall’s sumptuous spas

Spa sessions are always great for groups, especially when you’ve got something special to celebrate! Our favourite is the Bedruthan Hotel, where you can relax in the Jacuzzi and soak up the magnificent view of Mawgan Porth beach at the same time.

For the ultimate pampering experience, try the Scarlet Hotel (sister hotel to the Bedruthan), where you can slather yourself in rich mineral mud in the rhassoul, experience a traditional bathing ritual in the hammam and watch the waves from a cliff top hot tub. Can life get any more perfect than that?


Get crafty with a jewellery making workshop

For something a little more creative, try one of Sarah Drew’s jewellery making workshops. What better way to add something individual to your outfit for the big day than by making it yourself?

Try your hand at hat making

Holly Young’s cocktail hat-making parties are ideal for hen weekends, reunions or birthdays. Go wild with feathers, ribbons, silks, buttons, beads, netting and trimmings and make with a wonderful headpiece you can wear on a night out together or at the wedding.

Forage for your food

Fat Hen’s Forage, Cook & Feast Days are ideal for anyone who’s curious about wild food and foraging – or groups who simply fancy trying something a bit different! Start the day with a three-hour foraging trip to seek out seasonal wild edible herbs, vegetables, seaweeds, fungi, roots, seeds & berries before cooking up a tasty three course wild food lunch.


The taste of Cornwall: wine tasting at Camel Valley

Book a tour at Camel Valley and find out how the Lindo family make their renowned wines before sampling some of their finest – and perhaps splashing out on a little something to take home with you…

Go wild at Adrenalin Quarry

This is one for the thrill seekers! Try out the UK’s longest zip wire (50m high, 490m long), brave the giant swing which hangs 50ft off the ground, or ask them to together a bespoke package of outdoor havoc if you dare!

Get the taste for adventure

Get the taste for adventure with Active-8. Their multi-activity days are great value for adventurous hen parties, and there’s a huge range of other activities from paint balling to kayaking or coasteering to choose from.
