Holiday close to home

As lockdown eases, many of us are looking forward to a holiday or break. Even as restrictions lift, safety is still very much in the public consciousness. The ideal solution could be the isolated staycation.

With restrictions on overseas travel, staycations are becoming increasingly popular. Exploring what your home county has to offer might make you see Shropshire in a completely new light. One of the places offering a complete staycation package is Hencote, a family run wine estate on the outskirts of Shrewsbury.

Guests can immerse themselves in the rural wine-making lifestyle, glamping amongst the vines, partaking in vineyard tours and wine tastings, and savouring the locally-sourced produce from Hencote’s restaurant overlooking the vineyard and Shropshire countryside. 

For those with concerns about COVID-19, the Hencote Glamping Village is in a wide open space where every lodge is isolated, so there’s no worry of being in a crowded confined space.

Every lodge has its own double bedroom, children’s bedroom, log burner, kitchen, spacious bathroom with underfloor heating, lounging area and hot-tub. The more family focused Superior Lodge even has an indoor treehouse style ‘kiddies hideaway’ sleeping area for a real weekend adventure.
Hencote Vineyard is offering a two night package from Friday 16th April to Sunday 16th May, available on either a Friday or Saturday night stay. Packages include a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival, a wine tour and tasting, a breakfast hamper, a £35 per person allocation towards dinner at The Balcony and complementary hot tub use. The package is priced at £450, a 25 per cent saving.
