365 great things about Staffordshire - Weston Park in South West Staffordshire

Weston Park is no ordinary stately home. Set amongst 1,000 acres of Capability Brown landscaped parkland and former home to the Earls of Bradford, Weston has a rich history, an internationally important art  collection and all the grandeur you would expect from a stately home – but with a very modern outlook.

During the summer months the estate is open for visitors to explore and enjoy.

Gifted to the nation in 1986 by Richard, the current and 7th Earl of Bradford, Weston is now owned and maintained by the  Weston Park Foundation, an independent charitable trust. All proceeds go directly to the Foundation for the ongoing maintenance and conservation of the estate.

The House

The House and its collections are not hidden behind ropes as we operate as an exclusive use venue. With its tranquil location,  28 bedrooms and easy access to major train stations and airports, Weston is a highly sought after venue for private house parties,  weddingscorporate events and  celebrations. Guests enjoy exclusive use of the House, alongside five-star service from a dedicated team of butlers, chefs and housekeepers.

The Grounds

The grounds of Weston Park combine 1,000 acres of natural beauty and three centuries of garden design. The formal lines of the 19th century gardens fuse dramatically with the naturalistic style fashioned by Capability Brown in the 18th century.

Events

The park is home to outdoor events, large and small, throughout the year including the Midland Game Fair, CamperJam and Food and Craft Festivals.

Relaxing

Over in the  Granary Brasserie & Bakery, the restored 1767 Great Barn on the estate, our Head Chef and their brigade serve up simple, seasonally inspired dishes all year round. Diners can enjoy easy eating in a relaxed and laid back atmosphere in the Brasserie or delicious coffee and homemade sandwiches in the Bakery.

Location

Weston Park is located on the south western edge of Staffordhire, at Weston-under-Lizard.
