Description from owner

Description

This bothy was used, as the name suggests, as a workshop for the team of gardener’s who worked in the glass houses providing pot plants and cut flowers for the House. Benches would have been full of clay pots on work benches, bamboo canes and equipment that the team would need from soil sifters to planting out trays – all of which are referenced in the interior design.


Taking inspiration from its former use the design scheme weaves in gentle nods to its heritage with white washed walls and quirky features but with all the home comforts that you would expect.


Entering the property through large glazed doors the open plan living space features a hi-spec kitchen, wood burning stove, sheep skin rugs and a comfy sofa. The large bedroom has a luxurious en-suite bathroom with a bath made for two, heated floors, twin sinks and soft lighting.


A secret door leads into the historic walled garden for you to explore

The Weston Park estate on the Shropshire Staffordshire border is home to four unique historic holiday properties each with their own story. The Weston Park Foundation, the independent charitable trust that owns and maintains 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 1,000 acres of Capability Brown Parkland, Weston Park is 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.
