Nestled in the depths of Temple Wood, the Pink Cottage is a romantic retreat sleeping two on the Weston Park Estate. Set over one floor, compromising a spacious kitchen, unique sitting room with wood burning stove and glass doors opening into the gardens, cosy bedroom and modern bathroom, the cottage is the perfect hideaway for two.
Through the entrance hall, the kitchen has a modern grey and cream design fully kitted with oven, hob and fridge freezer, with dining table and chairs. The sitting room features a sugared almond colour scheme, with a love seat and sofa huddled around the wood burner. The cosy bedroom with oak furniture and chunky rugs leads into the en-suite bathroom with walk in rainforest shower, free standing bath and mural of the House adorning the back wall. To the side of the cottage is a patio set, perfect for warm summer nights, and a large private garden.
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 in a clearing in the heart of Temple Wood, the cottage is surrounded by 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.
