Welbeck is an inspiring place to work and live.
Dreaming of escaping to the country? If you’ve ever imagined immersing yourself totally in the country life, the Welbeck estate has the perfect solution.
It not only offers the opportunity to live within an historic country estate but it also has office accommodation and all the benefits that come with being part of an established business community.
You can put an end to early starts, long commutes and racing for those hard-to-find city centre parking spaces. Replace all that with a morning run, dog walk or just a leisurely breakfast before heading across the park to the office.
The estate surrounding Welbeck Abbey is steeped in history. Its striking expanse of parkland and impressive buildings make it both a beautiful place to live and work.
Its 15,000 acres are peppered with the villages and hamlets of Cuckney, Norton, Holbeck and Holbeck Woodhouse. Properties to let range from cosy terraced cottages to stone-built Victorian lodges and traditional farmhouses in beautiful rural settings.
Contemporary workspaces within carefully converted heritage buildings provide an inspirational setting for any business. Consultancies and technology companies work alongside creative and artisan businesses, food producers, publishers, designers and artists.
Commercial properties range from the grade II listed buildings of Carriage Court and Pineapple Lodge to The Brewery Yard, with its hub of food and drink producers. Cavendish House, meanwhile, offers modern serviced offices with meeting room, reception and car parking.
Businesses on the estate benefit from fibre broadband and IT support as well as 24/7 security. Welbeck is not short of space either. If businesses want to expand their operations further, there’s the option to grow. As part of the wider Welbeck Project, there are plans to develop more of the estate’s heritage buildings to create yet more opportunities for businesses.
While the estate offers a quieter pace of life, it’s certainly not sleepy. It has a thriving community and is also home to The Harley Gallery, The Portland Collection museum, and The Harley Café as well as Welbeck Farm Shop, Welbeck Abbey Brewery and The School of Artisan Food
It offers all the benefits of easy access to the larger cities and towns of Sheffield, Chesterfield and Nottingham and is only a 15-minute drive to both the M1 and the A1.
