Close to Wolverhampton and Telford, you’ll find one of the most exquisite country houses in the Midlands: Weston Park. The heritage-listed building dates back as far as 1670, although the 18th-century gardens are the main draw – the work of inimitable landscape architect Capability Brown. Read on for a list of noble and worthy places to stay on any visit to Weston Park – bookable now with Culture Trip.

1. Park House Hotel

What better way to start a list of hotels near Weston Park than with the exquisite Park House Hotel? This impressive accommodation encompasses two historic mansions, and both retain many of their original features – you’ll see ornate coving, chandeliers and high ceilings. A large fountain sits on the lawn outside the ivy-covered main building, while the water features inside include a small indoor swimming pool and a jacuzzi.

2. Church Farm B&B

Bed and Breakfast, Hotel

Wisteria clambers up the side of Church Farm B&B, which is eight miles (13km) from Weston Park. This pretty, 17th-century building is now a family-run bed and breakfast with bright rooms and plenty of rustic features, such as half-timbered ceilings and historic family portraits. Breakfasts consist of a full English with pastries and fruit – the eggs come from the property’s very own free-range hens.

3. Days Inn by Wyndham Telford Ironbridge M54

Hotel, Chain Hotel

For a reliable budget chain hotel, there’s the Days Inn outside Telford. The hotel is moments from the M54 and only 7 miles (11km) from Weston Park. You can expect the ensuite rooms to be minimalist yet well-appointed, with amenities including a work desk, bedside reading light and small seating area. Breakfasts are available for an additional fee for adults, and are free for children.

4. Haughton Hall

Hotel, Guesthouse

On the outskirts of Shifnal, the 18th-century mansion of Haughton Hall is an excellent luxury option. Such is the opulence here, you could be forgiven for thinking it was an extension of Weston Park itself – albeit one with an on-site fitness club, swimming pool and jacuzzi, as well as a more novel footgolf course. The latter facility is precisely what it sounds like: a combination of football and golf.

5. The Queens at Horton

Hotel, Pubs with Rooms

The Queens at Horton is a modest bed and breakfast with only five bedrooms and plenty of rustic charm. The rooms have a boutique feel, with a black-and-white design motif extending from the patterned wallpaper and lavish beds to the warmly lit sitting area. Much of the furniture has an ornate feel, and that continues through to the restaurant, with its wooden floors and exposed brick fireplaces.

6. The Lion Hotel

Bed and Breakfast, Inn

For a stay in a typically British pub, look no further than the Lion Hotel. This family-run abode sits in the heart of Broseley, a quaint Shropshire market town. The eight bedrooms are individually designed, containing either wrought-iron or four-poster bedsteads, wooden wardrobes, a small seating area with a kettle, and complimentary tea and coffee. Breakfast is included, consisting of fresh fruit and a cooked English breakfast.

7. Holiday Inn Wolverhampton - Racecourse

Hotel, Chain Hotel

8. The Mount Hotel

While the countryside around Weston Park has no shortage of manors that have been converted into elegant hotels, the Mount Hotel is a standout. Rooms have USB charging sockets, tastefully tiled bathrooms and modern mattresses, but the great hall, with its chandeliers and relief carvings, is the highlight. Impeccably preserved, it blends period features with contemporary comforts.

9. Telford Hotel & Golf Resort
