Your long-awaited Hen Weekend has arrived, your bag is packed and all that’s left to do is to get yourself to Alexander House – it couldn’t be simpler!

Host Sam will be there to organise everything, from all of the catering to every activity you’re planning to try. Isn’t that bliss compared to having had to spend months pulling together a weekend itinerary and then worrying the entire time that something will go wrong or you may have forgotten one vital thing?

Time to let your hair down

The fun starts from the moment you arrive at Alexander House. We will be ready to welcome you with a few glasses of perfectly chilled fizz. Check out the amazing views Alexander House has to offer, settle into your rooms and then head to the kitchen for a relaxed buffet supper based around your choice of Turkish mezze, Italian or Indian food. There’s no cooking, no clearing away, we take care of it all! Once dinner is over you can feel right at home, playing your favourite music or maybe a few games to get the party started before turning in for a good night’s sleep.

The adventure starts here

We’re not running a boot camp, so breakfast is served from the civilized time of 9.30am. Setting you up nicely for the day ahead you can enjoy a few hours chilling, maybe take a dip in the outdoor pool or soak in the hot tub, before the activities start.

On the activities front the world – well, Alexander House and the fabulous Scottish surrounds – is your oyster! The choices are endless, with plenty to do either onsite or nearby. Try white water rafting, kayaking, river duckies, take aim with clay pigeon shooting or archery, or learn bushcraft skills. You provide the transport and we’ll send you off with a delicious picnic to enjoy while you’re offsite.

Returning to Alexander House late afternoon, we’ll have a scrumptious homemade cake ready to enjoy with tea or coffee and you’ll have plenty of time to dress up for the evening, so don’t forget to pack your little black dress and sparkly shoes. Pre-dinner canapés are served in the Drawing Room, which is the perfect setting for selfies and group photos – especially if you’ve chosen the option to have a Murder Mystery Dinner and everyone is dressed in fabulous costumes!

Now it’s time to fall into bed…


And so to Sunday. Why not simply cosy up in your complimentary white fluffy dressing gowns and head down for a late morning brunch served in the kitchen. With no need to rush off just yet, turn on the tunes and chillax. With snacks and all food provided there’ll be plenty of leftovers to tuck into if you’re feeling peckish. Don’t forget to grab those last-minute selfies or group shots and enjoy a farewell glass of bubbly before leaving around 4pm.

As one of our recent Hen parties described their catered stay at Alexander House, it’s like having a special Hen fairy who is always there to make sure the entire weekend is a magical time!
