If you’re looking for a beautiful spot to escape to, then you’ll love our holiday cottage 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.

This impressive stone cottage has been carefully restored to offer a relaxed and cosy retreat, whilst retaining its historic character.

The space
The cottage forms 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. The Duke's racing successes were legendary. He was a very generous man too and The Winnings were built in 1890 specifically for retired estate workers.

The decor of the cottage has been designed by Alison Swan Parente, founder of The School of Artisan Food who has furnished the rooms with pieces from contemporary interiors specialist, PR Home, who are based on the Welbeck estate cottage

The cottage includes:
• two en-suite bedrooms
• light-filled sitting room with log burner
• fully-fitted kitchen with oven, dishwasher and washing machine
• private courtyard with seating area
• shared rear garden and large front garden
• designated parking for two cars

Each cottage has three HD TVs and Wifi, and also provided are books about the estate, 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), matches, logs and firelighters.

Where you’ll be

Nottinghamshire, England, United Kingdom

At our cottage, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the Welbeck experience. You’re just a few minutes’ walk from The School of Artisan Food and Welbeck Abbey Brewery so you could pre-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 which reopen on the 1st August 2020. 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 cottages are self-catering, but breakfast hampers are available to pre-order from Welbeck Farm Shop.

Jump in a car and you’re just a short drive from a wealth of other attractions including…

Bolsover Castle: Once part of the Welbeck estate, the Little Castle was built by William Cavendish as a retreat and entertaining space.

Hardwick Hall: Now owned by the National Trust, this Elizabethan mansion was created by Bess of Hardwick, whose youngest son purchased Welbeck Abbey.

Clumber Park: This neighbouring parkland with lake, healthland and chapel was once the seat of the Dukes of Newcastle and is now National Trust owned.

Sherwood Forest: Home to the legend that is Robin Hood, this forest now has an RSPB visitor centre with walks and marked trails.

Rufford Abbey: This park surrounding the remains of an Abbey, has a wealth of pathways around its woodlands, gardens and lake and also has activities, events and places to eat.

Mr Straw’s House: This Edwardian semi-detached house in Worksop has remained largely unchanged since the 1920s and is open to the public if booked in advance.
