With the end of lockdown in sight, all many of us want to do is leave the house for a much-needed retreat. With restrictions lifting, safety is still very much in the public consciousness. The perfect solution then for a quick April getaway is the isolated Staycation.

Staycations are becoming increasingly popular. With there being so many travel restrictions for traveling abroad, exploring what your home county has to offer may 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 in the heart of Shropshire.

Producing authentic wines grown from Shropshire soils, guests are welcome to immerse themselves in the country 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 Shrewsbury 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 confined space.

Every lodging is luxuriously appointed with its own double bedroom, children’s bedroom, log burner, kitchen, spacious bathroom with underfloor heating, lounging area, and it’s own hot-tub. The more family-focused ‘Superior Lodge’ even has an indoor treehouse-style ‘kiddies hideaway’ sleeping area for a real weekend adventure.

Overlooking Shrewsbury, Hencote Vineyard is the perfect temporary escape, offering an incredible two night package from Friday 16th April to Sunday 16th May – available on either a Friday or Saturday night stay.

If you opt for a holiday this year with the Hencote ‘Staycation’ Package, you will enjoy:

  • Bottle of Evolution Sparkling Wine on Ice on arrival to you Lodge
  • A Wine Tour & Tasting on one afternoon of your stay
  • Breakfast Hamper provided on arrival in your lodge for both mornings of stay
  • Friday to Sunday evenings – £35 allocation per person towards Dinner at The Balcony and a complimentary glass of our Hencote Evolution Sparkling wine
  • Complimentary Hot Tub use
  • Amazing views overlooking Shrewsbury Town and The Shropshire Hills
  • Package is priced at £450, which is a 25% saving on the individual price of each item of £603

Rather than travel somewhere by car, you could get away for the weekend by hopping on the train – no need to drive, we’re a 5min taxi ride away! We can also arrange trips into town where you can soak up the rich history and culture of Shrewsbury. Find out more www.hencote.com
