Pink Cottage

May 3, 2020

Pink Cottage is a beautiful unique escape on the charming Weston Park Estate in Shropshire.

Once on the grounds of Temple Wood, on the Weston Park Estate. We followed the directions from the booking sheet and arrived at Pink Cottage. Hidden in what feels like a story book forest, the cottage is a romantic retreat which sleeps two.

The cottage is just like the photos and we were even more surprised once we stepped inside. Opening the door directly onto the spacious kitchen, we were greeted by a fantastic welcome pack consisting of fresh fruit, wine, eggs, milk, bread, butter and other essentials. Relaxing music was coming from the unique sitting room, where a wood burning stove, logs and glass doors opened onto the green gardens. The bedroom was beautiful, the bed was made with luxury sheets and fresh laundered throws. The en-suite bathroom was even more fantastic, consisting of a free standing bath tub with a champagne cooler and the mural of the main house as a back drop, rain forest walk in shower and all the essentials and bath salts you would need for a cosy night in.

We had an amazing long weekend at Pink Cottage and would recommend it to anyone looking to book.
