Calling all brides to be… Whether you’re a local girl or looking a little further afield, the Green House, Bournemouth’s most eco-friendly luxury boutique hotel, is here to help you put together a unique celebration for you and your closest pals.
In fact, we’d go so far as to say that with our golden, sandy beaches, palm trees and cosmopolitan cafes, coming to Bournemouth is the closest thing you’ll get to a hen weekend abroad, only without the expense and the airport security queues. And all the money you save can be spent on making memories instead. Whatever your personal hen style – surf weekend or spa break, food with friends or champagne with shopping (or all of the above) – the Green House ticks all the boxes.
If you haven’t been in a while, it’s likely your idea of Bournemouth is a little outdated: far from catering to the blue rinse set, these days it has a buzzing, contemporary yet laid-back feel. Some are even saying we have knocked Brighton off its perch (or at least nudged it along a bit) as the capital of south coast cool.
The Green House has bags of experience putting on hen parties and weekends and we go above and beyond to ensure all your needs and desires are catered for. Whatever your chosen theme, we will work closely with you to ensure it’s totally unforgettable and Instagram-friendly! We’re located away from the crowds in a discreet, chic oasis, with plenty of complimentary onsite parking. And we offer the added bonus that our eco philosophy and practices mean you can let your (fabulous) hair down without letting the planet down too.
The Green House’s afternoon tea parties (with added fizz, if required) are particularly popular with our hens – pretty, affordable and prepared especially for you. Tea is served in our award-winning Arbor restaurant or in our chic, cosy bar every day from midday to 5pm. All our delicious bites are prepared fresh to order and arrive at your table on a beautiful three-tiered wooden tree; scones are served warm from the oven. Throw in a bottle of Bolly or our special English sparkling wine and you’ve got yourselves a slice of girly heaven.
Alternatively, we will work with you to put together a special Hen menu to be held in the privacy of one of our events rooms – you can decorate it however you like and won’t have to worry about disturbing other guests while you party.
All our luxurious twin bedrooms have a stunning reclaimed Victorian roll top bath, 32” LED flat screen TV, Bose sound dock, luxurious goose down duvets and crisp white organic bed linen. The bathrooms have natural stone basins, walk in showers, luxury toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. Let us arrange in-room beauty treatments for you all so you can relax and have a giggle while being totally pampered.
For trips out you’re spoilt for choice. There are the beaches and piers, of course, plus nearby Poole harbour and glamorous Sandbanks. Westbourne, affectionately known as ‘The Village’, offers a mix of designer stores and luxury beauty shops while Boscombe has a vintage market inside the Royal Arcade on the first Saturday of each month, an open air market, and antiques alley. A stroll down Old Christchurch road is great for vintage, too, with retro boutiques, quirky cafes and individual book shops.
If you’re game we can even arrange a surfing lesson on the beach for an unforgettable, exhilarating, bonding experience! We have partnered with Bournemouth’s premier surf school Surfsteps to create the perfect cure for a fuzzy head after a big night! The school can cater for groups of up to 24 people and offer discounts depending on group size.
So call the Green House today on 01202 498900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us arrange the perfect home-grown hen celebration for you and your friends.
