It is at this time of year that I start to get itchy feet and want to start planning breaks away for the year ahead. You may remember that I am trying to be good and not book anything just yet however some deals are just too good to resist! I'm lucky this year that two of my good friends are getting married and I have been given the task of organising a hen weekend. There are actually some real bargains to be had at the moment and here are the top 5 breaks I am considering at the moment:-
A night at Slaley Hall
There are lots of fantastic deals to be had with SpaBreaks.com from only £25. My favourite deal is a spa break at Slaley Hall in Northumberland which includes dinner, bed and breakfast, a 30 minute treatment and spa access for only £89 per person. Bargain! Now that I am aged 30+ and a fan of the quiet life, a weekend in a spa with my friends is the dream!

Go Ape at Matfen Hall
If you are looking for something different and your hen is the outdoorsy type, you are likely to thoroughly enjoy Go Ape at Matfen. Their tree top adventure involves zip wires, swings, high ropes, tunnels and crossings in the spectacular Northumberland countryside. After your afternoon of fresh air you can chill out and relax in the hotel spa and enjoy afternoon tea which we hear is pretty special.
A night at Newcastle Malmaison
The Malmaison sits in the heart of Newcastle's quayside and is a perfect place to chill out or party. We spent a night at the hotel last year and were very impressed with the stylish surroundings, brasserie with a view and cocktails in the bar (avoid the painkiller cocktail if you don't like them strong!). Newcastle Gusto and the Pitcher and Piano are next door if you'd like to head out for the evening but don't want to walk far in your heels and for something really special you could cross the Millennium bridge and enjoy drinks in the Baltic bar with unrivalled views of the Tyne.
A city break to Amsterdam
Book a budget hotel and hit the town
So those are my suggestions for a hen party in Newcastle, I must admit, I am leaning towards a bargain 2 night cruise to Amsterdam! Where would you book?
