The Farmhouse at Redcoats - afternoon tea review

When it comes to you hen weekend, it can be difficult to decide what activities to pick. With so many options to choose from and so many people to please it can get complicated.

The Barns at Redcoats - New Hertfordshire wedding venue review

A warm May evening with a glass of prosecco, surrounded by beautiful countryside and great people - this is how I spent my Thursday evening.

I had been invited to the Barns at Redcoats, nr Hitchin as they opened the doors to their brand new barn wedding venue for their launch party.

The Farmhouse at Redcoats dates back to the 15th Century and is surrounded by beautiful views of the Hertfordshire countryside. I have visited the Farmhouse many times for afternoon tea, dinner and recently a fragrance making hen party.
