Horn Cote is THE best place to host your self-catering hen or celebration weekend in Yorkshire. Surrounded by beautiful countryside yet only a ten-minute walk from the local pub, the 17th Century farmhouse has the sort of country-chic style that you see in Tatler or Town & Country magazines and is perfect for letting your hair down with your 17 (up to 28) friends and family in comfort. The owners cater exclusively for group bookings like hen weekends (as well as stag parties for over 35's), milestone birthdays, family celebrations or simply being child-free for a few days away with friends!
The location just outside of New Mill and only two miles from the pretty village of Holmfirth (the filming location for "Last of the Summer Wine") feels peaceful and rural yet is just 45-minutes from Manchester, Sheffield, Bradford and Leeds. It's entirely possible to spend a day shopping in one of these cities before returning to a cocktail mixing masterclass and a catered meal in the dining hall (house chef and waiters can be arranged), or waking up to a late brunch and an afternoon of pampering spa treatments before enjoying an unforgettable night of dancing with on-site disco (karaoke and live bands can be arranged). The owners of Horn Cote can help you arrange the perfect mix of activities to suit your party, from a burlesque class, to guided walks, road cycling and even boot camp.
You can stay on the grounds of Horn Cote without organising anything extra at all and still have a fantastic time because the house has it all. Not only is there plenty of space indoors and out where people can either spend time socialising together or snooze and sunbathe in peace, but the house also has a large outdoor Grand Canyon hot tub in a private courtyard, big cedarwood sauna with both steam and dry heat, a games room with a pool table, table tennis, unlimited WiFi and beauty treatment rooms.
The owners of Horn Cote (Martin and Caroline) want your stay there to be as successful as you do, so they do everything they can to help make planning your group holiday or celebration in Yorkshire stress-free. They have been working with families and friends to help create special times for five years and look forward to helping you arrange yours. Their website has more details on the packages they offer for hen parties, and they are happy to chat about arrangements for other celebrations and help tailor activities to suit everyone in your group.

Outside: Horn Cote is surrounded by five private acres of fields and woodland and offers a private and exclusive retreat. There is a courtyard next to the house for entertaining, enough flat lawn space to hold activities like boot camp or archery classes, and a fabulous hot tub and sauna. Outdoor lighting and braziers mean the fun doesn't end when the sun goes down. There is lots of space to park up to 15 cars. Webber BBQ (plus charcoal) provided - the owners can arrange for someone to cook on the BBQ for you if you prefer.
