Hen House Party Activity Weekend Itinerary

What makes us the perfect choice for a Lake District Hen Activity Weekend

These days adventurous activity weekends are not just reserved for the lads on their stags, and each year we’ve welcomed more and more hen groups looking for outdoor fun and adventure.

But what makes us the perfect choice for a Hen Activity Weekend with a difference? The fact that we have been an outdoor activity provider for over 15 years and have the added bonus of our own bunkhouse accommodation that sleeps 20 people, makes us fairly special. Even if we do say so ourselves.

And with our Hen House Party activity packages starting at as little as £900 for 2 nights accommodation + 1 activity for up to 8 people, or £1200 for 9-16 people, we don’t think you can go wrong!

We offer various activity packages that are based on your group number, but we are often asked which activities hen groups enjoy the most. So, with that in mind we thought we’d give you an example of the kind of fun hen weekend you could enjoy if you have a group of 16 people.

Friday Afternoon

From 4pm Lowick School Bunkhouse is all yours! Let yourselves in, make a brew or pop the corks on the prosecco and start to relax!

With its big self-catering kitchen-dining room, separate lounge complete with screen and projector, table football and wood-burning stove, groups are often pleasantly surprised with the large amount of inside space in the bunkhouse.

And outside it’s just as great as you get a large campfire area with seating around a firepit that you can also BBQ over. The fell views are pretty special from there too, so there’s no forgetting that you’re in the stunning Lake District. And if that isn’t enough, you can always book a hot tub from Cumbria Hot tub Hire who will deliver and set up so that everything is warm and ready to relax in on arrival.

The bunkhouse is self-catering, so you can either get the chef’s whites on in the fully equipped kitchen, light the BBQ and take advantage of our pre-order butcher packs, or if you really don’t feel like cooking, book a table at either The Farmers Arms Lowick or the Red Lion Inn, both of which are just a mile down the road.

Saturday Morning

Wakey-wakey, it’s time to make some memories!

Most groups choose to do a morning activity, or a full day with 2 activities. Our most popular hen group activities are Canoeing, Raft Building and Gorge Walking. You can just do one or combine 2 to make a full day. These activities can be as challenging and competitive as you want, but most of all they are rewarding and ridiculously fun!

Before you head out, your instructors will come and say hello to you at the bunkhouse and get you all sorted with the technical kit that you’ll be needing for your day. Then it’s off for your adventures! If you’re out for the day and want to make life even easier you can also pre-order delicious packed lunches for your group for £10 per person.  We don’t provide transport though, so make sure you have your designated drivers organised for the day.

Saturday Afternoon

If you’re doing two activities you’ll have time for some lunch before your afternoon session. Depending on your chosen activities you can either pop back to the bunkhouse for a quick bite, or take your packed lunches and find a spot between locations with a good view. There’s quite a choice around here!

If you just booked one activity, the rest of the weekend is yours. You could head out into the Lakes to see what else there is to offer, or we can set up a fantastic afternoon tea (with or without fizz) in the bunkhouse, so you can just hang out, have fun and feel spoiled.


Time to say good-bye (unless you’ve booked another night). But unlike some providers we understand the value of a good lie-in, so the check-out time for the bunkhouse is 12 noon. This gives you plenty of time to get up slowly, have a brew and some breakfast and still have time to clean up the bunkhouse before heading home.

So there you have it. The perfect mix of great group accommodation and excellent outdoor activity provision from a company who love hen groups, and who understand what it takes to make a weekend full of amazing memories!
