For a grown-up Hen Do, Launceston Farm is ideal. You’ve all made arrangements for the kids for the weekend and you need somewhere sumptuous and stylish for a much deserved break away together.
The surrounding Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides plenty of opportunities for walks from the Farm gate whilst dirt buggies, clay pigeon shoots, archery, paint balling and quad biking are on hand at Gorcombe Extreme Sports Centre. Try western style riding at Loose Reins Riding School or head to the New Forest to hire bikes and meet some of the local resident ponies. If the Jurassic Coast is calling, take a hike on the South West Coast Path – ranking alongside the Great Himalayan trail as one of the world’s most awe inspiring hikes – or try your hand at paddle boarding, coasteering or sea kayaking with Land & Wave.
If you don’t want to drive then pack your boots – or your bikes – and set out from the Farm gate. We provide maps and routes which will take in a pub or two along the way. Come back to the farmhouse kitchen; the perfect place to come together for a cookery demo or a mixology session and enjoy dinner together in the Old Cart Shed or head down to the Orchard and make use of our tractor hub-cap fire pit.
We can cater for your party if you want food waiting for you when you arrive or a farm-sourced full English on Sunday morning. If it’s fully waitered service and a bespoke menu you are looking for, we have local caterers we can recommend.
