Why North Devon for a Stag or Hen Party?
Ok, we accept that North Devon may not be everyone’s first thought when deciding on where to go for a stag or hen weekend, but as an area it has so much to offer… Hear us out!
We may be biased, but we think North Devon is awesome! You are never far away from either the brilliant beaches of Woolacombe or Croyde or the rugged moorland of Dartmoor or Exmoor, throw in some great places to eat and drink and you have the perfect combination for a great weekend away.
We’ve been blessed with some pretty phenomenal weather recently, all the way through to Autumn! At times, you’d have been forgiven for thinking you were in Italy or maybe even on a Greek island but minus the flight costs, the airport delays and the mosquitoes.
If you are coming from Cornwall, then it’s far enough to feel like you are going away (& also much more civilized than you’re used to ), but not too far to travel back after a buzzing activity filled weekend on the Sunday. For those of you travelling South- it has great road links with the M5 and there’s at least one train that gets you fairly close
Part of North Devon’s charm is that it’s slightly behind the hubbub of the cities and so you can expect a slightly more chilled out pace.
Once you’re here, we can set you up with transport for getting to and from your nights out.
Most of you will spend your 9-5’s inside at a desk. Get some fresh sea air and relax! We have beaches galore and our coastlines are stunning – take some time out to explore Hartland Quay or Baggy Point. You really won’t see too many places in the UK as beautiful.
The outdoor activities on offer are on the doorstep and it is the perfect location for Surfing at Westward Ho! and Coasteering at Croyde or for those of you that don’t want to travel during the weekend we have loads of on-site activities that will keep you entertained for hours.
Keep your Friday evening free to enjoy the on-site BBQ and Beer Tent selling locally (literally across the road from us) produced beer, cider and gin this then leaves the Saturday night for your group free to explore the local area. Whether you venture into Bideford or slightly further afield to Barnstaple to enjoy local food, drink and take in the night life that’s on offer.
We’re (for the most part) a friendly bunch down this way! You’re likely to encounter some real characters and some accents that you’ve only come across on spoof TV! If you stayed with us you’d be at our Ultimate Adventure Centre where the staff would look after your every need and ensure you had a good time. We’ve been putting on Stag and Hen Dos for a long time now and we’d like to think we’re pretty good at it!
What we do know is that everyone should take away fun filled memories of their trip to North Devon, that will be shared for years to come!
