Welbeck is a traditional, 15,000-acre estate in the heart of Sherwood Forest. The Farm Shop and Harley Café are part of Welbeck's community of artisan food producers, with the shop's low food mile delights served by attentive, knowledgeable staff.
At this well-established foodie hub, the team is proud to say that two thirds of its products are grown, raised or made right on the doorstep. There are meats from the award-winning butchery, raw milk and Stichelton blue cheese, with craft ales from Welbeck Abbey's microbrewery. Heritage seasonal fruits and vegetables are cultivated in the Walled Kitchen Garden.
Welbeck's diversions can fill a day or a week with a gallery, museum, activities for kids plus a sleek and seasonally influenced café. The excellent coffee needs its own CV. Stash some snacks and forge a route through the ancient woodlands and prehistoric gorges of this vast rural estate.
