Hen Weekends

Planning Your Hen Weekend

Planning your Hen Weekend? Kings Beck Barn is an ideal location to get together with your closest friends. A spacious barn that can sleep up to 10 hens, with plenty of space for all. 

“What a fantastic location for my daughter's hen weekend. Amazing facilities, everything catered for. Thank you!”

Jane, March 2022

We would love to welcome you and your closest friends to Kings Beck Barn for your hen weekend. The barn is extremely spacious and was designed to be a sociable venue! The large kitchen and living room provide an ideal setting to celebrate with friends.

Prices range due to the time of year, so check out our Prices and Availability page for more information.  During the quieter months, (& if we don’t have guests leaving the same day) we may be able to provide you with access to the barn from 2pm (please check with Sarah nearer the time to confirm).

We also understand that guests often don’t want the three nights that are on offer for a long weekend, but also don’t want to be up and out by 10am after a late night! If that’s the case please contact Sarah as she may be able to provide you with a two night option and associated discount (direct bookings only). Please note that this will only apply in off peak periods. 

We have listed a few things that you can do either at the barn or locally which hopefully will help in planning your special weekend, if you need more help please contact Sarah.
