Self Catering in Staffordshire - Weston-under-Lizard
The Knoll Tower
Sleeps a maximum of: 2
Pricing From: £429.00
Built circa 1865, this fascinating house is located in ancient and historic Weston Park, with panoramic views of the Shropshire countryside and Welsh borders. Situated on the far side of the Estate, its top floor sitting room looks over 'Capability' Brown's stunning 18th century parkland and is within walking distance of the onsite Grill and Deli.
This stunning Victorian Hunting Lodge is a luxury self-catering bolt hole affording privacy for a relaxing break away. Set over three floors, leading up to the top floor sitting room with panoramic views over historic parkland, the Tower combines all the home comforts that you would expect but in a unique historic hideaway. 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, the 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 on the far side of the Estate, The Knoll Tower benefits from the 1,000 acres of Capability Brown Parkland that Weston Park has to offer, being 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 team in our 1767 Granary Grill & Deli will prepare your welcome hamper which will include milk, butter, eggs, cheese, biscuits, freshly baked bread and a bottle of wine - all of which are sourced from the food heroes who we work with both locally and further afield.
If you don't feel like cooking, the Granary Grill is approximately a 20-minute walk or a short drive from the property. Based around an open plan kitchen and grill, our seasonally inspired menus 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 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.
