Hen Venues in the UK & Abroad
1. Linton Lodge, Scotland
If you’re looking to party, Linton Lodge should be pretty high on your list! It’s not too far from Edinburgh so a big night on the tiles is close by, but you might be tempted just to stay inside and enjoy everything this chic, fun and stylish property has to offer. The funky décor provides ideal surroundings for partying, and that’s before we get to the amenities! Who needs one hot tub when you can have five? Two are outside and three are indoors, and there’s enough room for everyone even if you fill up Linton Lodge with 24 guests. There’s a gym if you feel like working off some of those Prosecco calories and a cinema room for watching movies of your choice – and there’s even a lovely little pub just down the road if you feel like a cheeky drink (or ten).
In fact, Linton Lodge is so amazing that one hen party who booked through us loved it so much they wrote a blog about it for us!
