The alternative
hen do or stag do.

Your coolest best friend deserves exactly what they want for their big day, including their hen do!

Are you organising your best friends hen do, stag do, or a joint do and they fancy something a little bit offbeat? Then Grey Willow Yurts is the perfect laid back venue for them. 

Why Choose Grey Willow Yurts for Your Hen Do or Stag Do?

We’ve been lucky enough to host many hen do’s and stag do’s in the past for those that fancy something different from the norm. We hope we can help inspire your weekend, but don’t just take our word for it though, Hitched.co.uk think so too!

Our yurt site has room for 15+ guests in a very large field. While you have the space to enjoy yourselves, with only three yabins on site, it also has the intimacy and privacy to relax and switch off in a hammock with your inner circle. 

Not everyone wants the hustle and bustle (AKA DRAMA) of a packed-in activity and clubbing weekend. But that’s not to say Devon doesn’t have its fair share of activities to offer!

Hen Do Activities in Devon

Hen do’s can turn into a pricey weekend, but many things to do in the area can be really affordable if not free. So you can be assured everyone can enjoy a great weekend without breaking the bank.

Devon has quite the list of activities to please even the most discerning of bride & grooms. Take a look at our ‘Days Out‘ page to get a taste of what’s on offer. 

Our Favourites are: Sheldon Riding Centre, just 15 minutes from our site. Where you can hack your way through the Mid Devon countryside, and beginners are welcome too. 

Enjoy a boat ride to see the Jurassic coast at its best. Or be a bit more adventurous and hire your own boat at Beer beach and catch some mackarel for your bbq (summer months only). 

We’ve even had previous guests hire a Belly Dancing teacher to teach an outdoor dance class on site. 

We’re also very lucky to have not one but TWO local breweries, and by local we mean only a few fields away! Many Hands Brewery is a brand new craft brewery, who can provide beer to site before your stay! More on this coming soon! As well as Otter Brewery who provide brewery tours just a short walk from site.

But if relaxing is key to your weekend, then head to the Jurassic coast just 30 mins away to soak up the sun (hopefully), swim in the sea or go fossil hunting, all for free!

A Taste of What's on Offer!

If your group is full of foodies, then they’ll be spoilt for choice for eateries in Devon! Fancy something casual? Go for brunch at Boston Tea Party in Honiton. They have an excellent menu covering a range of dietary requirements, as well as being able to book large tables.  

If you want somewhere special then The Pig at Combe is a real treat. You can feel like your in Downtown Abbey while gorging on local food and drink, plus it isn’t too expensive either as they often have offers on!

If you prefer to keep it casual, then order in very yummy handmade, wood fired Pizza’s, delivered to site by Blackdown Pizza Co.
