Large house sleeping 10 to 40 with a hot tub and function room, for hen weekends in the Forest of Dean

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The General Stores, Mill End, Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire, sleeps 10-40 in 17 bedrooms.

The General Stores, Mill End Mitcheldean, is an absolutely perfect large house for family re-unions; 40th, 50th, 60th birthday parties with children brought along to share the occasion; big wedding anniversaries with all the generations together; active outdoor extreme sports weekends using all the local attractions; business dinners and private dining.

The General Stores is located on the edge of a village, which has all the amenities one might need for a weekend away for forest holidays or a self-catering weekend in a big country house.

The courtyard garden is completely private and not overlooked, other than by George Cottage, affording great views up the hills behind and immediate access to late shop, off-licence and take-away options within the village. You can make the most of the forest all around you, or you can spend the weekend luxuriating in the house, garden and facilities - there is something for everyone. Please look at our testament page on our own website to see what people have to say.

We specialise in and offer bespoke, sophisticated, spa break hen weekends where you can indulge in fine dining, in-house pamper treatments and hampers. In addition we provide a fantastic and luxurious (though we say so ourselves) range of add-on attractions and activities to create a truly unique pamper party.

These range from baroque to burlesque; can-can to charleston; cocktail training to chocolate classes; butlers in the buff to murder mystery; pasta making to wood fired pizza baking. The theatrical setting and elaborate table themes can complete your distinctive weekend, and we can put together a package specifically for your group, working to a budget per head.

We offer in house catering from our sister company, with buffets, three course dinners, cream teas and mad hatter’s tea parties – even themed dinners, offering vintage china, cut glass, bone handled cutlery and uniformed staff (including butlers in the buff) to complete the look!
