Holiday Cottages

Set on the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire border, you'll find your own slice of tranquillity right here in this private rural historic estate, nestled within Sherwood Forest.  We are more than 30 miles away from the city of Nottingham. Once here, there’s no need to travel far. There’s a network of trails to explore and it’s just a short walk from the estate’s very own art gallery, museum and café. You can even pick up locally sourced, fresh food from our award-winning Welbeck Farm Shop.   

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 a selection of 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, kitchen equipment and a supply of basics (coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper, and olive oil). 

The Winnings

These stunning two-bedroom cottages both sleep up to four and form part of The Winnings; a row of ornate almshouses that 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 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, and two of the barns have hot tubs.  Find out more
