A hen party retreat to beat all others!

Introducing Orchard Barn, a hen party retreat to beat all others! Near to the famous market town of Ludlow and walking distance to the lovely local pub, Orchard Barn is one of three beautiful holiday barns nestled on the grounds of a 2,000-acre estate where guests are welcome to walk and take in the stunning surrounding Shropshire countryside. Ludlow has many things to offer - from walking the streets of this historic town and visiting the castle and St Laurence's Church, to a meal at one of Ludlow's restaurants. Ludlow is also noted for the many events and festivals that take place, from the annual Medieval Christmas Fayre and the famed Food and Drink Festival. You will find plenty of things happening to keep your hens entertained! If you opt to stay in there is a shared swimming pool and tennis court, and a large garden, together creating a majestic hen party backdrop.

Property Information

Orchard Barn itself is a large L shaped property with an open plan kitchen and diner leading into the lounge and out onto the south facing garden, which has plenty of room to host a summers afternoon BBQ and drinks with your hens. Each of the six bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom or shower room and all face to the south, revealing enviable views from the windows. Orchard Barn also has shared access to a heated indoor swimming pool which you can book to use exclusively for your party, and use of a hard tennis court so don't forget your racket!

Why not book afternoon tea on arrival which will include a selection of delicious cakes and sandwiches? There is also an array of calming and deluxe spa treatments to choose from, which will put every hen into full relaxation mode. The large outdoor space is brilliant for a fun and energising boot camp session, and the sitting room is the ideal setting to cosy up for a movie and pizza night. These activities can be booked prior to your stay so your retreat will be planned with precision and attention to detail. Orchard Barn is the luxury pre-wedding venue that will be unforgettable.
