Hen’s parties employed to be synonymous with tacky veils, feather boas and L-plates, but there’s a new, far more sophisticated trend of celebrating your last days of singledom, with a relaxing girls weekend away. Bellingen, on the Coffs Coast (halfway between Sydney and Brisbane) is a scenic and peaceful town with some of the best B & B’s I’ve noticed. They are just perfect for a hens weekend.
Lily Pily Country Property is a objective built eco-sensitive guest residence sitting on 32 hectares of farm land. The 3 person suites, every with a Queen bed, ensuite and private deck overlooking the river and rural scenery are the best location to unpack and unwind. What tends to make Lily Pily excellent for a girl’s weekend away is the guest lounge and dining room. With comfortable sofas, a library and lots of magazines, the frequent region provides year extended comfort with a cosy log fire for Winter and cool air-conditioning in Summer season, the ideal spot to sit and chat for hours with your bridal party.
On arrival at Lily Pily, owners Felicity and Brian will welcome you with afternoon tea, a glass of wine and assist you decide exactly where to go for dinner. Your afternoon can then be spent bushwalking, canoeing, buying in town or just enjoying the organization of your close friends with some wine and the expansive scenery from the timber deck.
But, my recommendation is to contact in Liz from Skin Bliss Day Spa and indulge in a pre-wedding pamper package. Arrange a mani-pedi party, a massage, body scrub or a nourishing facial… no matter what you pick, each therapy is created to revive, restore and revitalize the thoughts, body and soul, generating it ideal for a stressed out bride-to-be and her besties.
Each morning at Lily Pily an a-la-carte breakfast with fresh farm eggs and fruits is served in the dining room and will energize you for a total day exploring the quaint town of Bellingen.
Just about the corner from Lily Pily is an additional wonderful B&B known as Afterglow Cottages. At Afterglow there are two self-contained cottages to decide on from. You can stay in the new architect-developed cottage or the beautiful converted 1940s dairy. Both cottages have one bedroom, are spacious and have the most magnificent outdoor bath I have ever observed. Unwind and get pleasure from the comfy lounge region equipped with a tv, dvds and books or sit back with a bbq on the deck and while away the day.
A delicious antipasto platter and wine will be waiting for you when you arrive, as effectively as a fridge stocked complete with fresh eggs, bacon, freshly baked cakes, bread and homemade preserves. Yum!
Owner Agnes, is the quintessential B&B operator. She has a enormous heart and will look immediately after you, help you strategy your weekend, or leave you alone… which ever you like. If you chose to leave the tranquil beauty of your cottage, Agnes will recommend and make a restaurant booking at one particular of her encouraged restaurants for you… she will even provide to drive you into town. Agnes is seriously sweet, you’ll finish up wanting her to join in all the enjoyable with you.
For a girls weekend away, book both the cottages and enjoy a enjoyable catch up prior to you stroll down the aisle, or take into account booking Afterglow for your honeymoon or a attractive pre-wedding getaway with your fiancé. Afterglow Cottages provides a wonderful getaway of tranquility, privacy and pure bliss.
