From the second we arrived at the glamping site we could just tell it was going to be a fantastic weekend. The tents are brilliant, lovely clean beds, mirrors , torches and lots of bunting to make it look pretty. Dean was there to welcome us and We were given a tour of the site and given all information we needed, we met the security guys who we were told were there at our beck and call all weekend.......they did not let us down. These guys were amazing and really played a huge part in making the weekend run smoothly. Lighting the fires, Cooking our bbqs, navigating us to the local pub, making sure we had enough bedding when the night got a bit chilly, they really went above and beyond the all of duty and were a credit to the team.
We shared the site with another hen party and so altogether there were 31 girls on site at one time. We each had use of the Barn for a night each and this room really did make the weekend the most amazing hen party venue. The only small criticism was that the area for washing up is in the toilet in the barn and wasnt the cleanest of places. This did not take anything away from the weekend though.
On the night we didn't have the barn we made good use of one of the fire pits and had a lovely evening outdoors with a Chinese take away from a local restaurant. Saturday morning the local pub The Elephant and Castle kindly opened its doors to us at 10am and cooked us a fantastic English breakfast. We were their first ever hen breakfast and we would definitely recommend them to carry this on.
The location of the site is about a 1mile walk to Twyford station and just a short train ride in to Reading , we arranged a cheer leading class in reading and this was a great morning.
Overall I would recommend St Swithens to anyone that asked. It really was a weekend to remember 10 out of 10 !! Xxx
