We were going to write a blog post for November about Bonfire Night events in Prestbury and the Alderly Edge, Bollington & Adlington areas but as we come to post this, local events are either cancelled or in a state of hiatus.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we’ll keep you updated as we find the latest on these.

Instead, and given the current situation, we thought we’d highlight a few days out and activities, available around the Legh Arms over the winter period. Many can be done as small groups, some are more suited to individuals; all can be enhanced by starting, finishing or including within them a little light refreshment… obviously.

For example, in our October post, we talked about how we welcome dogs and highlighted a few dog friendly walks in the area. If that’s you, then you can still read that article, do the walk and bring your pooch for some post perambulation pampering.

However, as the nights get longer and the days cooler, we thought we’d highlight a few of our favourite winter activities and some that our regular visitors like to do when they visit the Legh Arms too.

Things to do in Prestbury throughout winter

The cooler months are a great time to get out and explore the best that Prestbury and the surrounding area has to offer.  National trust properties like the house and park at nearby Lyme operate throughout the winter.   

For road cyclists, a quick look at Strava’s heat maps shows we’re on a very popular winter cycling route from Macclesfield out to Alderley Edge.  For you lot, do feel free to pop in for tea and medals if it’s cold & wet, we’re open every day.  

Alternatively If you like Golf then we’re the ideal location for a winter golf break with three courses; Prestbury, Tytherington & Motteram Wood all within a couple of miles of our hotel.

So, there you go. If you’re lucky enough to find a Halloween or Bonfire Night party near Prestbury, to kick off the early part of the festive season, we’ll be here if you’d like to book a table and make night of it.

If however, the current situation precludes that, then perhaps you’ll think of us and pop in when you’re enjoying the great outdoors and the best that winter has to offer in Macclesfield.
