What’s more, with an array of things to see and do in the city, you can tailor your celebrations to suit your every whim, whether it be slipping into the thermal waters of the famous Thermae Bath Spa, a stint of shopping, or sampling the vast choice of restaurants, bars and nightclubs throughout the city.

For exclusive luxury…
Situated in the centre of Padstow, the sublime Georgian country home accommodates eight hens during what promises to be an unforgettable celebratory experience.

Part of Prideaux Place – an esteemed estate dating back to Elizabethan times – Fentonluna is located in Padstow’s popular Old Town, offering prime views over both town and ocean beyond. What’s more, the interiors are awash with unique character and charm, where open fires meet stripped wooden floorboards and uber-ambient lighting (created by Soho Hotel’s lighting designer, Charlotte Packe) to spellbinding effect.

There’s even a cinema room nestled into the attic, as well as four individually styled bedrooms, a stunning living space and glorious walled garden; the perfect place to stretch out in the sunshine or sink a glass of bubbly before heading out to explore Padstow’s world-renowned culinary scene or snuggling up with a film and some games for the evening.
