The Knoll Tower holiday home details

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.

What an amazing place this is. We were married at the house in 2009 and spotted the Tower. So glad we returned to this magical, beautiful place. It is so idyllic for it's solitude and peace, yet so accessible for local attractions. We are locals ... and will rebook.

What a wonderfully appointed, cosy, quirky hideout for "Mother's Day" weekend - Surprise! So peaceful - just the sound of birdsong and the bleating of the sheep with their lambs outside the fence. Lovely walks and huge buzzards.

An excellent conversion of an attractive and well built tower. We were very thankful for that during "Storm Doris" when some trees fell or lost their branches. We and the Tower remained stable and cosy. Visited Shrewsbury for the first time for 40 years and were impressed, as we were with Weston Park.

Absolutely brilliant. I booked it for my husband's birthday and we both enjoyed our stay there so much. Beautiful, unusual accommodation and site. Despite our plans to visit other places, we spent all our time in the estate. I hadn't realised it was going to be so large. It was lovely. Full of wildlife so peaceful. The views from the tower were wonderful. All the estate workers and staff we met were so friendly and helpful too. The Granary Restaurant was brilliant - definitely our best meal during our holiday. We had such a happy time. Thank you so much.

A wonderful place to see out the old & bring in the New Year, a bonus to have a clear night on the rooftop to see fireworks (not to mention stars!). Warm & comfortable in 'our' tower.

We had our honeymoon here this time last year and fell in love with the place. We promised we would come back and we did. This little enchanted 'castle' has the gift of welcoming you with open arms and forcing you to relax. We will be back again.
