Weston ParkView map
One of the most welcoming stately homes
ollow in the footsteps of Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and other international leaders, by visiting the magnificent Weston Park. The eyes of the world were on this place when the most powerful figures on earth met here for the 1998 G8 Summit, but things will be rather more relaxed as you stroll around the Capability Brown-designed gardens.
Weston's Dining Occasions (we recommend the Chocoholic's) are a great opportunity to dine and stay overnight in one of the 28 rooms (24 doubles; four singles), all with the trappings you’d expect from a 17th-century stately home. Designed in 1671 by Lady Elizabeth Wilbraham, there’s a rather magnificent collection of tapestries, porcelain and fine art to explore (including works by Van Dyck, Stubbs and Constable), 1,000 acres of parkland for long leisurely strolls, an adventure playground – and even a maze.
With a full calendar of events and great food and art exhibitions all year round, Weston Park promises to be an unforgettable venue, appealing to young and old.
