An enormous, traditional estate deep in Robin Hood country, Welbeck Farm now hosts a chic and well-rounded community of artisan food producers and entertainments. The large shop sources two thirds of its produce from the estate, stocking its own meat, raw milk, Welbeck Abbey ales, Stichelton blue cheese, artisan chocolates from in-house chocolatier Shelly Preston and sensational sausage rolls.
Across the courtyard, the Harley art gallery has activities for kids, an irresistible gift shop and contemporary exhibitions alongside the Portland collection. In a building nearby, there’s an independent café with a hip, minimalist interior where hungry hoards are fed with classic fare, delicious daily specials and a unique coffee blend. If you have time to spare, park up, grab some snacks and meander round one of the three downloadable walking routes around the rural estate. Heaven.
