Self Catering in Staffordshire - Weston-under-Lizard
The Gardener's Bothy
Weston Park Estate
Sleeps a maximum of: 2
Pricing From: £381.00
This former gardener's workshop has been refurbished to the highest standards, offering a spacious open plan living space, wood burning stove, hi-spec kitchen and large bedroom with luxurious en-suite bath made for two. Set in the historic Weston Park Estate which offers 1,000 acres of 'Capability' Brown with direct access through a secret door to The Granary Grill and Deli.
The Gardener's Bothy, a delightful, romantic property for two is where the Garden's team would have stored their equipment and stopped for a well-earned cup of tea and a rest. With its exposed brick and old country wooden floor, the Gardener's Bothy has been given a warm scheme with unique touches including a table made out of an antique grape bin. Entering the property through large glazed doors, the open plan living space features a hi-spec kitchen, wood burning stove, sheep skin rugs and a comfy sofa.
The large bedroom has a luxurious en-suite bathroom with a bath made for two, heated floors, twin sinks and soft lighting. A secret door from the garden leads into the historic walled garden with direct access to your very own entrance to the Granary Grill for you to explore and enjoy at your leisure. If you don't feel like cooking, the Granary Grill is based around an open plan kitchen and grill and seasonally inspired menus which are created by our Head Chef and his brigade.
The Grill serves lunch daily and dinner from Wednesday through to Saturday. Over in the Granary Deli you will find fresh bread, quality cheeses, cured meats, homemade cakes and savoury pastries, oils, vinegars, jams and chutneys plus some very special ingredients that you won't find in the supermarkets. The team in our 1767 Granary Grill & Deli will also prepare your welcome hamper which will include milk, butter, eggs, cheese, biscuits, freshly baked bread and a bottle of wine â all of which are sourced from the food heroes who we work with both locally and further afield.
The Weston Park estate on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border is home to six unique historic holiday properties, each with their own story. Temple of Diana (6 guests); The Knoll Tower (2 guests); Pink Cottage (2 guests); The Gardener's Bothy (2 guests); The Potting Shed (2 guests); and the main house, Weston Park (up to 54 guests in 28 rooms). The Weston Park Foundation, an independent charitable trust who own and maintain the estate, has given each property a new lease of life balancing comfort and modernity whilst remaining sympathetic to their extraordinary heritage thus providing a rare opportunity to stay in the heart of this historical Estate.
Set in 1,000 acres of Capability Brown Parkland, Weston Park is a stately home, events venue, visitor attraction and luxury get away all rolled into one. At certain times of the year you will need to share the estate with a wide variety of events that take place in and around the Parkland. There are also times of the year where no events take place on the Estate so please click here to take a look at the calendar - you may even be planning to come along to one! The Shropshire/Staffordshire area has plenty on offer to explore with the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge and its famous museums, foodie destination Ludlow and historic Chester all within easy reach.
