SUPPLIER FOCUS: A girly weekend away with a wild and wonderful differenceTweet
Today we’re giving a HUGE shout out for the fabulous girls at Babes in the Woods, who make it their business to bring "Champagne camping with a touch of the wild” to adventurous brides who fancy something much more special for a hen party than just taking a cheap flight to get drunk in the sun!
Now, anyone with any sense would thinks that surviving a weekend with no showers, running water or electricity would be a girl’s worst nightmare but once you arrive at the Babes HQ all your fears will evaporate. The charmingly rustic camps are exclusively tucked away either in a secret pocket of beautiful Devon woodland or a magical spot on the Malvern Hills.
Sleeping quarters are furnished with comfy camp beds (on legs!) inside Californian bedroom domes and the dining area is a large pole built space with a tarpaulin roof in the middle of a clearing. Washing facilities are in another tent that contains an antique nightstand with mirror, china wash bowl and jugs of hot and cold water, while the composting toilet is a miracle of engineering!
And the glamp doesn’t stop at the accommodation. You’ll be served delicious local food around a banquet table in your very own woodland grove, listen to story tellers or musicians around the camp fire, learn to forage and make jam, experience a shiatsu massage or indulge in a facial. There are three different packages to choose from so everyone's idea of a wild weekend away is catered for.
Hetti Dysch, the founder of BITW and a great one for bush craft, which is a key element of the weekend, says: “The whole weekend is a totally different, wild opportunity and it would not be complete without A Babes in the Woods adventure! Our wild walk in Devon takes in a stunning river beach complete with its' very own boat wreck! Stories abound of undiscovered treasure troves dating back to missing gold from the Spanish Armada. And for the brave hens, there's always the possibility of a quick dip...”
The BITW team is totally committed to showing you a fantastic time that you’ll never forget. When you celebrate with them, you’ll find that you and your friends will experience what it’s like to live in a wild and nourishing woodland community. Alongside deep relaxation, learning new skills and sharing plenty of laughter, you’ll also get to play a part in the smooth running of the weekend, a total team effort!
Babes in the Woods is an approved Green Union partner. Think glamorous camping, new skills, laughter and fun. They specialise in champagne hen do's with a touch of the wild. Learn to build a fire, a survival shelter and identify wild food in the hedgerows. Laugh the night away around a campfire, falling asleep in luxury Californian bedroom domes. A proper girly weekend away with a wild and wonderful difference! Prices fully inclusive.
