Having my hen weekend at the Oxford Yurt Company in September was an absolute stroke of genius on the part of my four bridesmaids. I literally had the best weekend ever - more fun than I knew was possible to cram into a weekend!

I had dropped a few hints that I didn't want a typical tacky weekend and that I thought 'glamping' would be fun - I really just wanted to have some good times with all my girlfriends in one place, as we don't get together very often - and as I don't like clubbing it seemed like a good option.

Well, when I arrived at the Tipi Village and saw our Yurt it exceeded all expectations! I loved the yurt's interior and decor with the lanterns and boho chic furnishings. The whole set up was truly unique and had a real 'Wow' factor about it - the perfect setting for a girlie weekend. Plus it had all the mod cons us girls need, including hot showers, clean toilets, plug sockets and a separate kitchen hut.

All my hens absolutely loved the place and were really impressed that the whole weekend was so different - it was great all sleeping in the yurt together and having the whole field and area to ourselves. The activities that were planned were fab - several BBQs and a lot of party games, a Bollywood dance class out on the grass, a cream tea in the lovely kitchenette and an Arabian Nights themed Moroccan feast complete with Aladdin-style fancy dress.

Sarah was the perfect hostess - arranging the Bollywood class with the lovely Gita, preparing our afternoon tea and cooking up a Moroccan feast - whilst at the same time letting us get on with things ourselves.

I had the best ever hen weekend - it is a weekend I will always remember... simply perfect.

Huge thank you to Sarah, Gita and everyone else who made it so memorable and wonderful. I would recommend it to ANYONE looking for a fun hen weekend, glamping or just a weekend get togethr.

A really big thank you for looking after us and making the weekend the huge success that it was.

Everyone had such a fantastic and really memorable time - I've had e-mails from everyone asking to pass on their thanks and appreciation to you and Jules. Already thinking about a mid-week summer event.

I organised a friend’s hen weekend at The Oxford Yurt and we all had a fantastic time. Entering the yurt is a bit like going into a magical world and it really feels like yours for the weekend which is so much nicer than booking into a hotel. When the sun has gone down the atmosphere created with the roaring fire and lanterns is a gorgeous, chilled space to share with your best mates.

We enjoyed a Bollywood dancing class and wine tasting session on our weekend which were both great fun and really added a sense of occasion to the event.

Sarah was extremely accommodating both in the run-up to the weekend and the weekend itself – she was so helpful and worked really hard to ensure we had exactly the right party for our group and our budget. I’d have no hesitation in recommending The Oxford Yurt to other groups. Thanks Sarah!
