If you are planning a hen weekend with your closest friends in rural Norfolk, Kings Beck Barn could be the ideal location.  A perfect party barn for up to 12 hens from £36.50 per hen, per night. 

Hen WeekendEnjoy a weekend with us in our large self catering barn with your best friends. The options are endless; if you fancy an evening in, why not have a cocktail master class, followed by a delicious meal from your own private chef, whilst being served champagne from a butler in the buff? If its an evening out, you could venture into nearby Norwich to party the night away in the numerous bars and restaurants. During the day you could take a trip to the coast or have a go at paddle boarding on the Broads. If you fancy something a little more active why not have a go at clay pigeon shooting, a high ropes course, go karting or a surfing lesson. In addition you could enjoy afternoon tea at the barn with an afternoon of pampering. There are so many options available, with a some great pubs/restaurants nearby, including The Banningham Crown which is only 1.5 miles away.  After a busy day, why not return to the barn and enjoy the amazing sun sets whilst relaxing in the hot tub.  The games room can be used to set-up a disco in the games room.

To help you plan your hen weekend, we have put together our top suggestions with links of things that you can organise.  If there is something that isn’t listed and you need some local knowledge, give Sarah a call and she will do her very best to help.
