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 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 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 soured from the food heroes who we work with both locally and further afield.

If you don't feel like cooking, the Granary Grill is a short walk or 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.
