  • Two granddaughters and my husband spent a couple of hours or more happily painting a varied choice of pottery. The pottery workshop is a lovely calm place to work in and was extremely well equipped, e...  more »
  • Another fab lunch you can't go wrong here, loads of choice and freshly cooked without a long wait and lovely staff 
  • For free and a private house still. Not an NT property. How the other half lives, although some of the Bentincks work for a living.

  • The Harley Café: sets the gold standard for cafes. Superior quality to most restaurants. Eggs benedict with a choice of ham or salmon, from the specials board. Cooked to perfection. Presented simply. All ingredients of a very high quality. The service was outstanding. I wish I could rate you higher. You deserve to do very well ... open a chain, please.
  • Nice gallery. We went to a Lego exhibition so was v busy. Nice garden centre there too with decent cafe.
  • Provides regular exhibitions of art, historical interests, crafts and many other areas of interest, and it's free.
  • The gallery is a bit of an unexpected gem. We visited for the first time with our two small ones for the Lego exhibition they were holding. The building itself is an impressive relatively new structure built with lots of thought to the historical location within the Welbeck Estate. This really pays off inside where the galleries are well lit and of a decent size, though by no means huge. We especially liked the vault like doors on the lower floor gallery room, they had some real clout to them! It was busy on our visit as it was half term and the exhibit was aimed at children, but there was enough room to mill about. The staff were pretty helpful and I guess due to busyness, you didn't get that feeling that you can do in a quiet art gallery of being constantly observed! The attached cafe looked to be service some rather tasty sounding food, but it was very hectic so we headed to the garden centre next door.
  • An awesome place to spend a few hours. Take the kids. It's free
