From the moment you walk into the Front Hall, you will realise that this is not just any ordinary stately home; Weston was the ancestral home to the Earls of Bradford and contains internationally important collections of art and antiques, which reflect the collecting passions of the Newport and Bridgeman families.
Weston was first mentioned in the Domesday Book and the current House was built in 1671 by Lady Elizabeth Wilbraham, inspired by designs in Palladio’s First Book of Architecture.
The Dining Room
Created by the Victorian 3rd Earl, this room was designed to impress and entertain. On the walls hang a significant collection of Old Masters so you can enjoy dinner in the company of 17th century theatre impresario Sir Thomas Killigrew by Van Dyck and Charles II’s notorious mistress Moll Davies by Lely.
The formal dining table can seat up to 46 guests or up to 90 guests on round tables.
The Victorian Orangery
Originally built for the cultivation of exotic plants, the natural stone walls and floors make this an enchanting setting for any occasion. In the summer the doors can be thrown open and guests can enjoy drinks and canapés in the beautiful Italianate Broderie Gardens and around the fountain.
The Library is the heart of the house, with roaring log fires in the winter and doors open to the gardens in the summer, your guests will naturally gravitate towards this room and its large comfortable sofas to relax with a coffee or enjoy after dinner drinks and conversation.
The Music Room
Situated in the Victorian East Wing, the Music Room offers another location for dining up to 60 guests, civil ceremonies or recitals using the Baby Grand Piano.
The Marble Halls
Located in the centre of the House, with natural daylight the Halls are superb locations for a Champagne Reception, buffet lunch or exhibition space.
The First and Second Salons
These rooms were open courtyards when the House was originally built, they now showcase items from the collection and offer an intimate dining alternative for smaller numbers and can cater for up to 20 guests.
