Fed up of constantly being told what you can and can’t do? In the current covid-19 climate, the rules and regulations are constantly changing, and getting out and about is proving to be rather difficult. Here at Moonrise Lodges, you can enjoy a restriction-free winter holiday – whether you prefer getting out and about, or simply wish to relax in the hot tub with your loved ones, our two wooden lodges provide the ideal setting for a spectacular seasonal staycation. Why not book out both lodges and enjoy a relaxing break with another family this winter?!

Here are our top 10 things to do during your winter stay at Moonrise Lodges:

1) Explore Wonderful Winter Landscapes

Step outside the front door and discover many magical walks just a stone’s throw away from Moonrise Lodges. Mitchell’s Fold is a Bronze Age stone circle set in dramatic moorland; Corndon Hill is a fascinating hiking route situated on the Wales-England border; and Stapeley Common is a saddleback-shaped hill boasting walks for all ages and abilities. All of these routes can be walked to from our lodges – no need to get the car out!

2) Embark Upon a Family Farm Tour

Here at Moonrise Lodges, we offer all guests a FREE farm tour for all the family to enjoy. Discover the inner workings of a dairy farm and feed our young calves on this fascinating family adventure – but make sure you pack your wellies!

3) Independent Shopping in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury is one of England’s finest medieval market towns, just a 45-minute drive away from Moonrise Lodges. The centre offers fantastic independent shopping and an award-winning indoor market; so why not bag yourself some brilliant bargains during your winter staycation?!

4) Picturesque Walking Trails at Powis Castle

Just a half-hour drive from our lodges, Powis Castle is the ideal landscape for a wonderful winter walk. The castle is home to a spectacular collection of paintings, sculptures, tapestries and furniture; with the award-winning gardens boasting picturesque walking trails and crisp winter views.

5) Make a Racket in the Tennis Court

Let off some steam and challenge your family members to a game of tennis or two in the full-size tennis court. Our well-maintained tennis court is situated within the idyllic grounds here of Moonrise Lodges, and we encourage guests of all ages and abilities to partake in this friendly sport.

6) Cook a Delicious Dinner

Cook a tasty meal for all the family to enjoy. The beautiful fully-equipped kitchen area features integrated appliances, a large fridge freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave and dishwasher; with the adjacent dining room providing the perfect space for eating and socialising. Supermarkets can easily deliver to our lodges, so there’s no need to waste time embarking on a stressful supermarket trip. Self-catering at its finest!

7) Soak in the Sunken Hot Tub

Relax and unwind in your own private hot tub after a busy day exploring the sights and sounds of rural Shropshire. Our stunning sunken hot tubs boast sprawling views across both England and Wales, and can be used all year round – even during the snow!

8) Huddle Around the Fire Pit

After a long soak in the hot tub, why not settle down by the firepit with your tipple of choice and roast some marshmallows (specially provided for your stay)? Our rustic firepit provides the ideal setting for a bedtime story (or two!); wrap up warm in a cosy blanket and spend some quality time with your loved ones during your relaxing winter staycation.

9) Snuggle Down with Your Favourite Film

If you start to feel a bit chilly, you can retreat indoors and settle down in front of the large-screen TV in the cosy and comfortable sitting area. We offer free WiFi and smart TV apps within both lodges, allowing you to put your feet up and indulge in your favourite Netflix show or film.

10) Gaze Upon the Spectacular Starlit Skies

Our lodges are hidden away amongst the spectacular Shropshire countryside, with minimal noise and light pollution. Gaze upon the stars and explore the wonders of the galaxy from the comfort of our magnificent hot tubs or decking area during your winter break.
