Set high above Shrewsbury and the Shropshire countryside, Hencote is a destination English vineyard with national appeal.
Visit a genuine English wine estate to stroll through the vineyard and ancient wet woodlands of the old River Severn, visit the winery operation to taste the locally produced award-winning wines, dine in a new restaurant sourcing the best local and national produce or stay over in a beautifully restored Georgian hay barn or in any of 10 thoughtfully appointed luxury glamping lodges.
Luxury onsite accommodation is available in the shape of the Grange, an elegantly restored Georgian farmhouse, and the glamping village, a series of lavishly furnished luxury lodges. Each residence is outfitted with its own hot tub - the perfect vantage point from which to take in the view of the Shrewsbury skyline and the vibrant vineyard that sits below.
At ‘The View’, our brand new restaurant overlooking Shrewsbury and the Hencote vineyard, you can eat and drink with loved ones to your heart’s content. Sit at the chef’s table and savour strikingly delicious meals prepared from the finest ingredients. Alternatively, take a seat at our wine bar and enjoy one of our exquisite wines while looking directly into the very winery that produced it.
We run winery and vineyard tours throughout the year, where guests will be able to share in the vision that creates Hencote's wine. Winery tours are available every Thursday to Sunday throughout January to April whilst our Vineyard Tours begin in May when the growing season begins and continues through to harvest in September.

We had a great day. Could not fault anything. Lovely wines, delicious food and brilliant hosts. We are lucky to have this facility on our doorstep and can't wait until the restaurant opens. Highly recommended.
“I have just returned home after a wonderful stay at Hencote.”
From the moment I reached Hencote with its beautiful surroundings I began to relax. Hencote itself is pure luxury. The sumptuous bed, free standing bath and gorgeous fluffy towels were my personal favourites!
“Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality.”
The care and attention showed by the fabulous team. Luxurious yet homely feel to the accommodation. Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality. I could stay here for a month/year! I don’t think that I have ever
felt so relaxed!
