Today we visited Weston Park it was the weekend for Cosford air show, we were hoping to catch a glimpse of the planes from overhead.
The Weston estate is underneath the flight path, we knew we would be able to watch the planes without queuing or sitting amongst large crowds of people, fighting for a picnic space on the grass.
It has been a while since I visited Weston but it is my favourite country estate in Staffordshire by far and we have been around quite a few now, pushing the children on their bikes.
Inside the estate is a lovely restaurant the Granary Grill and Deli, some of the meals on the menu include:
Spiced crispy pork belly with pan fried scallops on bak choi with lentil and coriander puree.
Rump of lamb with black olive tapenade, Provencal vegetables and garlic mash.
Seared calves liver with caramelised onions, crispy bacon and mash.
they are just three of many more amazing mains, I haven't even got started on the puddings!
Weston park is set in 1000 acres of beautiful country side and features a miniature railway, park for the children with sit on diggers in a large sand pit, swings slides climbing frames, walled garden, deli and café, St Andrews church, and a Victorian orangery the list endless.
Whilst we were visiting the park a quick rain shower broke out, so we raced with the children under cover and sat outside the café. Paul and I shared a bottle of chardonnay (I mention this because the price was fantastic a mere £7.49 fantastic value for money in such a lovely setting, it wouldn't cost much less for two coffee's).
If you are in the area of Weston Staffordshire and want somewhere good to look around whilst in the proximity, I highly recommend Weston you wont be disappointed.
