Here are some of our top suggestions of places you can celebrate getting hitched with your friends and family.

If you’re the adventurous type, leave unmarried life with a bang with one of these adventure activity centres.

For a chance to truly leave the world behind for a few days, head to Roadford Lake. Their adventurous stag and hen activity days give you the chance to take on the ultimate adventure, with everything from archery, raft building, paddleboarding or even taking on the high ropes course – there is something for everyone! Not only that, but you can even stay onsite! Why not combine your stag or hen with a stay in one of their luxury bell tents to really round of the experience? The team at Roadford Lake can even put together a tailored package for you, so you know everyone in the group will be catered for.

For a choice of adventure and slightly more leisurely activities, take a look at what the Mole Resort have to offer. As well as offering luxury accommodation, the Mole Resort also host activity days, with an array of indoor and outdoor experiences, including archery, axe throwing, bushcrafting or a round of golf.

Or how about booking an experience with  Tamar Trails in Tavistock? Here you’ll find several activities available for those who love being outside and taking on a challenge, including those offered by Canoe Tamar and Tree Surfers.

Like the idea of axe throwing? Head to Exeter and spend some time with the Celtic Tossers – where you’ll enjoy a premium experience every time! With sessions lasting an hour, you can easily fit this in with a host of other activities during your hen or stag experience.

If you fancy something a little more low key, there are plenty of options for you too. How about heading to China Blue in Totnes and creating memories together at the Colour Me Happy Pottery and Paint Centre.
