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. You don't need to panic buy and bring all your shopping with you!

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 the late shop, library, 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 & leisure facilities - there is something for everyone.

We specialise in bespoke, sophisticated, spa break hen weekends where you can indulge in fine dining, in-house pamper treatments & great catering & cocktails. In addition we provide a fantastic & luxurious range of add-on attractions & activities to create a truly unique hen party - including theming an entire themed weekend from start to finish with decorations, games, food styling, activities, acoustic music, food & drink & even bespoke cocktail menus.

Bordello Banquets offers baroque dinners to burlesque dance classes; can-can & charleston classes; cocktail training & chocolate making; butlers in the buff & murder mystery; fresh pasta making & wood fired pizza baking. The theatrical setting and elaborate table themes can complete your distinctive weekend, and we can put together a package to suit a 'per hen' budget.

Bordello Banquets also offers indoor or alfresco buffets, three course dinners, cream teas & mad hatter’s tea parties well suited to intergenerational family bookings and big birthdays & we have vintage china, cut glass ware, bone handled cutlery and uniformed staff (including butlers in the buff) to complete the look!
