Holiday Cottages

If you’re looking for a beautiful spot to escape to, then you’ll love our selection of holiday cottages and barns, in the heart of Welbeck.

You’ll find your own slice of tranquillity right here in this private rural historic estate, nestled within Sherwood Forest in north Nottinghamshire. Our holiday cottages have been carefully restored to offer a relaxed and cosy retreat, whilst retaining their historic character.
Staying on the estate
At our cottages, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the Welbeck experience. You’re just a few minutes’ walk or drive from The School of Artisan Food and Welbeck Abbey Brewery so you could book on a cookery course or brewery tour during your stay.
You’ll also be able to explore the public walkways around the beautiful estate or visit The Courtyard; home to The Harley Gallery, The Portland Collection and The Harley Shop. Refuel with a hearty breakfast, leisurely lunch or afternoon cake in The Harley Café or stock up in Welbeck Farm Shop.  

Here you’ll find delicious food fresh from the estate including Stichelton Cheese, Welbeck Abbey Brewery real ales and bread and patisserie from Welbeck Bakehouse. The holiday cottages and barns are self-catering, but breakfast hampers are available to pre-order from Welbeck Farm Shop.
All of our holiday accommodation has plenty of free parking, Wifi, maps of local walks, beautiful white cotton bed-linen, towels, toiletries, kitchen equipment and a supply of basics (coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper, and olive oil). 
You can choose to stay in one of The Winnings cottages or from mid-august Holbeck Farm Barns will be available. 

The Winnings

These stunning two-bedroom cottages both sleep up to four and form part of The Winnings; a row of ornate almshouses which were built by Welbeck Abbey’s 6th Duke of Portland using the proceeds made during a series of horse racing wins. Find out more. 


Holbeck Farm Barns 

Tucked away in a quiet part of the estate are the newly transformed Holbeck Farm Barns, providing the chance to truly get away from it all. These self-contained barn conversions are currently being furnished and will be available from mid-august. They are set in the estate’s picture-perfect village of Holbeck with uninterrupted views of rolling fields and woodland. There are five adjacent holiday properties available, sleeping from four to eight people.  Find out more

Welbeck makes the ideal base for exploring further afield with a variety of attractions within a short drive away.

Our flexible booking policy

We have suspended our usual cancellation policy so you can book with peace of mind. This also applies to existing bookings. If you have to change plans due to coronavirus, you can move or cancel your stay up to 48 hours before the check-in day, due to: 

  • Government restrictions make it impossible for you to travel to the property.
  • You or other guests have Covid-19 symptoms in the two weeks before your check-in.
  • You have to self-isolate.

If this happens you will have three options:

  • Move your booking: You can move your booking to any dates up to the end of 2021 (subject to availability). The price may be higher or lower depending on the time of year. If you move your stay we will not charge any admin fees.
  • Take a credit note: If you want to move your booking but you are not sure of dates we can give you a credit note for later. This will be valid up to the end of 2021, and there will be no admin fee charged.
  • Cancel your booking: In this case, we will refund all payments.

When we are ready to revert back to the standard policy we’ll give plenty of notice so you don’t get ‘caught out’ by a change.
