    About this property

    Complimentary Welcome Hamper
    A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

    S41825, built circa 1865, is located in the midst of the ancient and historic park of Weston Park, with panoramic views of the Shropshire countryside and Welsh borders.
    This luxury self-catering bolt hole is available for week or weekend short breaks throughout the year. Sleeping two guests, this Victorian Hunting Lodge was built in the late 1800s by the third Earl of Bradford. Set over three floors, leading up to a top floor sitting room with panoramic views over Capability Browns stunning 18th century parkland, the Tower combines all the home comforts you could would want but in a unique historic hideaway.
    S41825 is situated on the outer reaches of the Park and as well as unrivalled views across to the magnificent 17th century stately home and the Temple of Diana, also enjoys views across the Shropshire Hills, affording total privacy for a relaxing escape. Guests staying at Knoll Tower can enjoy walking through Temple Wood, one of only five Capability Brown Pleasure Grounds left intact in the UK. The Granary Grill and Deli on the estate is open all year round with the Grill serving lunch and dinner and the Deli stocking a wide range of speciality food and drink.
    The Weston Park Foundation took over the Weston Park estate in 1986, the Tower was unused and semi derelict at that time. In 2002 it was restored and permission granted to build an extersion providing kitchen, bathroom and heating. In December 2013, the property went through a major redecoration programme to enable the charity to offer the property as a unique destination for short breaks.

    "Amazing venue. Secluded location, all mod cons. Made me feel like Lord of the Manor for the five nights I stayed. I saw hardly anyone apart from at The Granary, after a long walk from the Knoll. One of the best locations I have ever stayed in. This venue is totally unsuitable for people with mobility issues otherwise sublime."

    "S41825 was a wonderful place to stay we were slightly disappointed.We arrived on 27.10 the milk which was in the welcome back expired on 26.The small very attractive battery operated lights, the batteries were dead and there were no replacements, there were no additional night lights so once used 1 evening that was it. A tea pot would have been nice.However this is a personnel preference."

    "Amazing property. Good restoration. Didn't realise Weston Park was so big.would definitely recommend the property! Disappointed with deli as not stocked well enough to make a meal. Two pieces of cheese in the chiller no meats. No fresh bread. Granary Grill not the best either. Limited menu and ruined my steak. :("

    "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."

    "The weather was terrible - gales and heavy rain which caused every window to leak, and the back (kitchen door) to let water in underneath. None of the leaks affected our stay and it was not their fault that the weather was so bad. We didn't leave the tower for our entire stay (in fact we came home a day early, thinking we may as well be confined to the house with our own home comforts!)."
    Confirmed Guest
    "We had an amazing time - the property was stunning and the facilities were top notch.
