Crafty Hen Party In Oxford
The Glam Hatter Girls know that whilst the hen party organiser and bride-to-be may be big into craft there may be someone in your group who is not. That is why we teach our workshops with a lot of fun and giggles. We have had experience with all kind of groups. One lady (the bride’s Mummy) arrived at a workshop a few years ago and she was not keen on crafting at all. By the end of the workshop she had made a beautiful piece, chatted to her friends and spent the workshop crafting beside her daughter at the table. She then said to the teacher, “Wow, this is the best thing I’ve ever made!” And then she turned to her daughter, placed her hand on her daughter’s arm, and said, “Except for you!” There was not a dry eye in the house!

We host crafty workshops in South Wales and have lovely venues in Penarth, Cardiff and Penhein.
One of our favourite recommendations for hen parties in South Wales is Penhein Glamping. It is the perfect hen party accommodation and even has a tepee where we host the crafty workshops. Stay on this Glamp site and we can come to you for a flower crown or fascinator workshop. Or come to one of our venues and then go Glamping at Penhein for a boho weekend!
Hen Party Accommodation Glamping At Penhein
Penhein Glampsite is tucked away in secluded woodland surrounded by endless countryside. Stay in beautiful alachigh tents which are cosy and warm and kitted out with everything you need to feel at home in the great outdoors. Escape to nature, leave the world behind, and sleep under the stars in comfort and style. Pack your adventurous spirit, your favourite girl friends & plenty of Prosecco!
Penhein is the ideal place for hen parties of all sizes. Stay small and intimate with 8 friends in 2 tents or for larger parties, book exclusive hire of the glampsite. You’ll have the woods to yourselves and an adventure to remember! There are six tents in total, sleeping up to 30 adults.
Hen Party Accommodation Glamping – Bathing At Penhein
This Glam Hatter Girl is not a natural camper but after seeing Penhein I am all over it. It’s not just the fact that the camp beds are actual beds – with crisp white linen and patchwork blankets…Or the skylight above the bed so you can star gaze in snuggly comfort…It’s not even the fresh flowers that sit on bedside tables made from wooden pallets stacked with vintage Penguin books…All these things are utterly beautiful but what sways this London girl to camp is the bathroom facilities!
There is an en-suite flushing loo attached to every one of the tents, plus luxurious shared bathroom facilities. The shower block is wood clad on the outside with a Mandarin Stone tiled interior and sumptuous underfloor heating! (OMG) It has four hot monsoon showers, beautiful Belfast sinks, and a flushing loo. The ultimate (and absolutely unexpected) luxury is a glorious roll-top bath to revive and rejuvenate at the end of a long hen day!
Hen Party Accommodation Glamping – Activities At Penhein
Flower Crown Workshop At Penhein With Glam Hatters
Book their gorgeous communal tent andThe Glam Hatter Girls will come and run aflower crown or fascinator making workshop for your hen party. If you’re going to Glamp then you’re already clearly a stylish crew so go all the way and choose a Glam Hatters’ workshop. I love that hens can make a boho flower crown and then wear it for the rest of the weekend while floating fairy like around the Glamp site!
The guys at Penhein will organise their local caterer to supply “Biscuits, Pastries & Wotnots” so you can enjoy a boho afternoon tea during your hen party workshop. Bring your own Prosecco and store it in their fridges or order a grocery/booze shop from the local super market and have it delivered ahead of your arrival to Penhein.
The communal tent is so atmospheric, put on some music and make some unforgettable memories. You’re welcome to bring tea lights and decorations to dress the tent. We’ll bring hat boxes full of materials and we’ll all enjoy an afternoon of crafts, giggles and afternoon teas!!!
Plan You Hen Party Weekend at Penhein Glamping
At this point in the post I could talk about acres, vistas and names of rivers… My readers are city girls so what I’m going to say is this…Penhein is a not a typical Welsh hillside glampsite. It is super-stylish, full of home comforts but has just enough camping type thingies for us city girls to go home with tales of adventure and eating under the stars! If you want to walk around fields with cattle grids and stuff they have all that. As per beautiful views of a very big river, semi-ancient woods, wild flowers, valleys etc. etc.
There’s lots to explore in the local area and the guys at Penhein will happily help you plan a great day out (or two!) for your gang – from country pursuits and discovery walks, to picnics in meadows followed by a bubbles in the local pub.
Eating At Penhein Glamping
More importantly they have a grill in the ground called a fire pit. You can light a fire and cook sausages thus allowing you to enjoy a perfect hangover breakfast. Further more they have this special stove thing for the perfect bacon butty (Welsh word for bacon sarnie).
I think it’s kind of traditional to get back to basics regarding food on a campsite. But I say if you’re going to do basics, do them in a stylish way! At Penhein they have lovely facilities for this. You can barbecue on the fire pit, and brew tea, coffee and bubbling one-pot dishes on the stove inside your tent. However ladies, if all that sounds too daunting, there’s also a cheat’s kitchen for back-up, so you’re never too far from all the mod cons. Double yay!!!
So there you go ladies, you can escape to the countryside and still have all the comforts of home. Play music, enjoy a hen party workshop with The Glam Hatter Girls and nibble on Biscuits, Pastry & Wotnots whilst sipping champagne in the communal tent. Star gaze from the comfort of you own bed and know that you have a flushing loo en-suite! Eat yummy things and if you end up with cinders switch to the cheats kitchen. Penhein is the best Hen Party Accommodation Glamping in South Wales and they’ve got the awards to prove it. I’m going to leave you with the words of the lovely Teresa from Penhein, “If you’re going to Glamp anywhere, come & Glamp with us.”
With Love & Laughter, Glam Hatter Girl xxx

Sarah wanted a beach-side hen party location for her best friend’s hen party weekend.
Sarah organised a hen party for her friends in Beach End Road in Selsey, near Chichester. Their hen party accommodation for the weekend was a gorgeous. A sea-front, architectural glass-structured house, two steps from the ocean with an amazing beach view. In terms of a beach-side hen party location you couldn’t get a better view than this!
Little Tides Reach Hen Party Location
Little Tides Reach is apartment is an extended part a 1960s detached contemporary beach front property. It is located at the foreshore of the private end of East Beach Road in Selsey. The private part of the dwelling has been turned into a boutique modern compact 2 bed apartment. A great spot for a relaxing hen party location.
Take a look at the lovely private garden area which has a selection of contemporary outdoor furniture. This calm, quite garden is the ideal place for a glass (or two) of Prosecco. The only noise is the sound of the waves crashing and your friends cackling! Follow a short walk to the local fishing huts in Selsey to sample locally caught lobster and crab.
In our Glam Hatter Girl, Amanda’s own words, “The house was amazing. Something you could imagine on the beaches in Malibu. The entire front of the house was covered in glass overlooking the sea. The house was spread over two floors, with the bedrooms downstairs and the kitchen, lounge and dining area all open plan upstairs. With an amazing bookcase covering one wall of the lounge. The ladies all posed with their fascinators for Astri and I after we had finished the fascinator making workshop in both the lounge and out on the balcony.””

Hen Party Activity 2. Yoga On The Beach
How about a morning practicing yoga on the beach? That’s what Sarah and her friends did. If you can do yoga on the beach you really are at a fantastic hen party location. I believe it’s the prefect start to a hen party weekend. Every hen party should start with yoga. That way you won’t fell so bad when at 3 o’clock in the morning your best friend is holding your hair back for you! To try yoga on the beach contact The Yoga Hub.
Hen Party Activity 3. Fascinator Making
Glam Hatter Girls Astri and Amanda set up their fascinator making class at the dining table which had this fantastic view (below). The ladies were tremendous and they all had so much fun chatting together while stitching. They followed step-by-step instructions provided by The Glam Hatter Girls and each hen made a gorgeous fascinator to wear to the wedding.
As the Glam Hatters’ creator I am always so proud to see the pictures of all the hen parties we run across the country. The Glam Hatter Girls love running these parties and that really comes through in these pictures. Well done guys, what a super creative hen party.

If you’re looking for an unusual hen party idea how about a hen party weekend spent Glamping?!
Thanks to Bridget Jones those of us that have never camped (at least not since being an adult) now know what Glamping is! And if Bridget’s weekend is anything to go by your hens will be super pleased to have been invited along.
The wonderful Canopy & Stars company have a variety of beautiful glamping activities. My favourite one is The Gypsy Camp in Bouncer’s Farm, created in authentic detail, there are two wagons for sleeping in and the traditional willow bender tent is your lounge. The camps two bowtop wagons are genuine articles and with this in mind they have been carefully restored and set among the apple trees.
Hen Party Accommodation Sleeping Arrangements
The bowtops are the bedrooms making the Gypsy Camp ideal for a small hen party. The bender tent with the day bed and the wood-burner as well as making a great daytime living space can also sleep a couple of extra guests. Granted the beds in the red and green wagons are a little snug 3ft and 3ft 6” respectively. However they really are just for sleeping in and they look super cosy to me!
The camp as a whole, all let as a single private space, is a magical place. There are pigs living on the other side of the orchard and blooming apple and cherry trees.In addition there is masses of delicious local produce and everything at Bouncers Farm seems full of life.
What’s more The Glam Hatter Girlsare happy to pitch up and run and fascinator making workshop. How about sitting around this beautiful table to make your fascinator of flower crown?! You could go for a boho vibe and add fabric blooms to your fascinator for a perfect Gypsy style. As unusual hen party ideas go this one is just dreamy!
Last weekend we hosted a hat making hen party activity in Bristol. Our Glam Hatter Girls travel all over the UK crafty hen parties.
These gorgeous girls on our suggestion had their hen party at Racks Bar and Restaurant in Clifton Bristol. They came to us fresh from paddle boarding. If only they’d done it the other way around I would have loved to see them paddle boarding whilst wearing their fascinators! A lot of our hens come to us after doing a more active hen party activity before hand. They then get to relax and unwind with hat making, lovely food and lots of bubbles! We’ve hosted lots of hen parties in Bristol and had lots of feedback from our customers about the best hen party activities in Bristol.
Top Tips For A Hen Party Activity in Bristol
If you’re looking for a stylish and fun hen party activity the Glam Hatters’ crafty parties are perfect for you. We source venues all over the UK on your behalf.

Clayshooting In Bristol

One of our hen parties went for the 25 Clay Shoot Package and I would recommend that one. It’s the prefect amount of time for a hen party activity.

The Glam Hatter Girls are now hosting fascinator and flower crown making hen parties in Cardiff Bay. Come and visit us for a stylish hen party activity.
Cardiff is my Mum’s homeland and is a beautiful and very cosmopolitan place. Over the years it has had a massive face lift. The docks used to be for the poorest of the poor, my Great Nanna lived there and used to be one of those little old ladies sitting outside her terraced house on her chair which she had dragged onto the pavement, chatting to all her friends. These days the bay is super chi-chi, full of architecturally stunning buildings, art galleries, restaurants and bars.
It’s a 5 minute cab ride from Cardiff Central train station or a 5 minute train ride. You can even hire bicycles at the bay and cycle to our other Welsh venue in Penarth.
I arrived in the bay by boat! Myself and my Welsh friend Jane did a little bit of shopping in Cardiff, (Hello lovely caramel sandals from Kurt Geiger and matching caramel bag from T.K.Maxx), then wandered down to the riverside at Cardiff Castle, via The Pertigrew Tea Rooms (Hi there yummy afternoon tea finger sandwiches and scones – no don’t worry I don’t need to fit into this new dress, I’d much rather just eat cake.)
Outside the tea rooms we popped ourselves on a boat and sailed down to The Bay. It’s a tranquil way to arrive and if you listen to the voice over (rather than catching up with your bubbly friend) I’m sure it might be quite educational too.
From there it’s about a 3 second walk to our venue. If you’re looking for an original hen party idea book in with the The Glam Hatter Girls for a fabulous Fascinator Making Workshop and then totter on to one of these fab places for afternoon tea wearing your fascinators and fitting in nicely with the oh-so-very-stylish Cardiff girls. Here are my Tips For A Hen Party Afternoon in Cardiff Bay

The workshops are suitable for every level of sewing skills, even if you’ve never picked up a needle in your life! After all that making and chatting you may be ready for some tea and cake…..
Hen Party Step 2. St. David’s Hotel for Afternoon Tea
St David’s Hotel and Spa, Champagne Afternoon Tea Voted in the top 10 hotels in the UK in the Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards 2015, the global award winning St David’s Hotel & Spa is the only AA rated 5 star hotel in Cardiff and provides a luxurious backdrop for an extra special afternoon tea.

Their selection of cakes and pastries are delicious – you’ll usually find Welsh cakes, tarts and cupcakes on offer, and they all look as good as they taste! And not forgetting the lovely view of Cardiff Bay to top it all off.
Hen Party Step 3. The Marine Spa in St. David’s Hotel
Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely love a spa and I really love the spa at The St David’s Hotel. Check out The Marine Spa and why not book a treatment for the following morning – the perfect way to cure those hen party hang-overs!
