The Forge

Are you looking for a hen do with a difference? Do you love the idea of being outside but are looking for some luxury thrown in? A glamping retreat could be the perfect solution!

A hen do is a time for celebration, letting your hair down, some serious bonding, a lot of giggles as well as just a wee bit of embarrassment. Here is why a glamping weekend at The Forge could help you achieve all of this and more!

You get to be outside!

For anyone who spends all week long sitting in an office, getting you and all your best mates for a weekend outside may be your idea of bliss! Chilling around the campfire or in a hammock with a few drinks and some good tunes (yes, we have Bluetooth speakers) on a gorgeous sunny afternoon – what could be more perfect! Oh, and did I mention the amazing mountain views?

You can create your own adventures

Whether you are adrenaline junkies who fancy some inland surfing, zip wire action or white-water rafting or perhaps something a little more relaxing like anopen-canoe paddle along the canal or some stunning hill walks, we can arrange all this for you. And rest assured there are hot showers and hot chocolates round the campfire waiting for you on your return.

It’s a foodie heaven

We can manage all the catering for you – laying on breakfast in the morning (with anything from Bircher muesli and smoothies to a full Welsh fry up), packed lunches if you are out and about and a big lavish dinner in the evening. We can also arrange a Wild Gourmet Banquet where you can forage and prepare all of you wild food before enjoying a spectacular dinner with candles, music and of course lots of wine! We’ve also got some amazing local restaurants (from pub grub to Michelin starred) and some award-winning takeaways, all within a 15 min drive.

Just bring yourselves (and a few embarrassing photos/costumes obvs)

You can turn up with literally your clothes and a few basics – you don’t need to worry about any camping equipment – we even have real wine glasses and the all-important corkscrews! This of course leaves more room in the car for inappropriately themed costumes and hen-do paraphernalia 😊. And you are guaranteed the whole place to yourself so no need to worry about disturbing anyone else – you can literally make as much noise as you like (cue squeals)!

It’s like a grown-up pyjama party (with Prosecco!)

You get to share a bell tent but rather than slumming it on the ground you are treated to real beds, gorgeous cosy throws, big squidgy cushions and lots of candles and rugs. Not to mention a snug little log burner to keep you all toasty in the evening as you snuggle up in your favourite PJs, pop a few corks and play a few rounds of Mr and Mrs!

If this sounds like your idea of fun then get in touch and we can craft an unforgettable experience for you and your mates, that won’t break the bank!
