Fentafriddle: A view from a Bride-To-Be…
One day trawling the internet looking for hen-spiration I came across an incredible property in Trebarwith Strand, North Cornwall. I decided from the outset that I wasn't going to have one of "those" hen do's; you know the ones: L-plates, feather boas, people drinking from shot glasses – the less said the better: no sir! I was having a classy, adult, decadent "do" with elegance, a dress code and a civilized afternoon tea. I am nearly 30 after all!

So imagine my delight discovering Fentafriddle: a luxurious clifftop barn in Cornwall that sleeps 8 and offer such luxuries as a woodburner, ensuite bathrooms, an incredible roll top bath and slate floors. Add to this a widescreen television with theatre surround sound, a Bose sound system and one or two well behaved dogs are allowed too (Jasper and Lola will be henning it with us then!) It is no
surprise to discover that Fentafriddle is five star and gold award winning or that it has been used as a movie set, even from the photographs I can see the location is second to none. The thought of taking it over for an intimate hen do with my closest friends is too exciting and I call my Maid of Honour who immediately logs on to look at it too!
Within half an hour we have planned the itinerary: a private chef to cook us dinner, a fortune teller to read our futures, a vintage cream tea with champagne, a burlesque dancing class, a girls surfing lesson in Newquay and then pampering back at Fentafriddle with massage, manicures and pedicures before a pyjama party and “the Holiday” on the widescreen telly (after all, with a Christmas-time hen do it would be rude not to!) Now all we have to worry about is the cost but surprisingly a 3 night weekend is only setting us back £1,250! That is only £150 each to stay and the other hens can
decide what they want to attend eg just the dinner or the surf and spa session! Feeling very excited, I can now tick the hen party off on my enormous “to do” list but then the Maid of Honour squeals “OMG they do WEDDINGS too!” I have a feeling I know where her nuptials will be taking place!
