  The Detail...

This luxury self-catering bolt hole is available for week or weekend short breaks throughout the year. Sleeping two guests, this Victorian Hunting Lodge was built in the late 1800s by the third Earl of Bradford. Set over three floors, leading up to a top floor sitting room with panoramic views over Capability Browns stunning 18th century parkland, the Tower combines all the home comforts you could would want but in a unique historic hideaway.

The Knoll Tower is situated on the outer reaches of the Park and as well as unrivalled views across to the magnificent 17th century stately home and the Temple of Diana, also enjoys views across the Shropshire Hills, affording total privacy for a relaxing escape. Guests staying at Knoll Tower can enjoy walking through Temple Wood, one of only five Capability Brown Pleasure Grounds left intact in the UK. The Granary Grill and Deli on the estate is open all year round with the Grill serving lunch and dinner and the Deli stocking a wide range of food and drink.

The Weston Park Foundation took over the Weston Park estate in 1986, the Tower was unused and semi derelict at that time. In 2002 it was restored and permission granted to build an extension providing kitchen, bathroom and heating. In December 2013, the property went through a major redecoration programme to enable the charity to offer the property as a unique destination for short breaks.

This spectacular estate is set to host a year long programme of diverse events to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the birth of Englands most admired landscaper, Lancelot Capability Brown (1716 1783) along with many other events throughout the year.
The delicious Granary Grill, Deli and Cafe are located within Weston Park serving a variety of meals for breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner. Otherwise, locally sourced produced can be purchased from the well-stocked Deli, or theres The Fox in Chetwyn Aston, that serves excellent food. There is an abundance of walks within the Park where you often spot an array of wildlife. Slightly further afield and you can walk up The Wrekin a well-known landmark in the area or Cannock Chase, a huge area of parkland. Weston Parks Woodland Adventure Playground is the perfect day out for the children with slides, zip wires and a cargo net and the Miniature Railway takes a mile long journey through the glorious grounds of the Park.

Play a round at Shropshire Golf Club or fish with RH Fisheries Limited, one of their fisheries is located within Weston Park. The Granary Art Gallery is situated on the estate. Selling exhibitions by acclaimed artists from the UK and beyond, along with items on loan to the gallery from private collections. Other activities that Weston Park may be able to arrange for you are: archery, clay pigeon shooting, falconry displays, 44 off roading, quad and trail bikes, duck herding, ferret racing, hot air ballooning, horse drawn carriage rides and treasure hunts.

Lindsay and Russell says...
"Wow, what an amazing place. The view from the roof was amazing, perfect for star gazing. We saw 4 people during our 4 day stay, so if you want peace, this is perfect. We arrived to find a lovely bottle of organic wine along with all other basics you may need. It definitely has the wow factor. The stairs take a bit of work on the first day but by the end you're running up and down like you usually take stairs. I can't recommend this place highly enough, just fabulous , and we are going back next year! Bring binoculars, and/or a telescope because the stars are really clear due to it being in the middle of nowhere. And enjoy the army of squirrels in the surrounding trees :-)"
