We were going to write a blog post for November about Bonfire Night events in Macclesfield and the Congleton, Stoke & Alderly Edge 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 Flower Pot 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 Flower Pot too.

Things to do in Macclesfield throughout winter

Winter is a  great time to get out and explore the best that the Macclesfield area has to offer.  There are plenty of heritage sites open throughout the winter, but some of our  favourite activities involve walks around local sites like Teggs Nose Country Park & Macclesfield Forest, on the edge of the Peaks.

For road cyclists, a quick look at Strava’s heat maps shows loads of popular winter cycling routes between Macclesfield and The Peaks. Plus, Bikemap has this really useful page with six cycle routes of various lengths that start and finish in town. Alternatively, If you like Golf then we’re the ideal location for some pre or post golf hospitality, with courses like the Macclesfield Golf Club practically on our doorstep.

So, there you go. If you’re lucky enough to find a Halloween or Bonfire Night party near Macclesfield, 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 East Cheshire.
