For coffee-lovers, creatives and countryside adventurers
We are Open
In the bleak months of Corona 2020, we made a life changing decision to turn our little family farm into an outdoor rural retreat with cafe and visual arts events.
We want to create a space that serves its communities, sourcing locally and working with the people of Stoke-on-Trent and the Staffordshire Moorlands, connecting our guests with culture and nature.
Join us on our journey by keeping an eye on our progress and get involved with our projects and initiatives.
Growing with Staffordshire
What we offer...
Whether you are a caffeine addict, theatre lover, or countryside walker, we provide a relaxing environment for all those looking to escape to the country and indulge in that farm lifestyle.
We will aim to source locally where possible and invest in our community. In time, we aim to grow our own produce on the farm and grow our business alongside the Staffordshire Moorlands and the city of Stoke-on-Trent.
We believe Staffordshire is a place of immense potential, and we want to be a part of it!
Please be advised the cafe will be closed from the 21st-24th of October for scheduled construction works. Normal service will be resumed on October 28th. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Bolton Gate Team
Our Mission Statement
To use our space to serve the communities of Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding Staffordshire Moorlands, and connect our guests back to nature.
To support local artists and contribute to the cultural landscape of our community.
To be a space that champions inclusivity and welcomes all.
To serve a banging cup of coffee!
What makes us so unique is our location. We are the bridge between the old furnaces of Stoke-on-Trent and the endless green hills of the peak district. We aim to put our environment and our communities at the heart of everything we do, and share this little gem with as many people as we can!
The Sheep and the Swallows
Whilst on the farm, keep your eyes peeled for our swallow families nesting in the barns.
It's just family business...
We are a family run business and between us have a range of different passions and interests.
Handyman Andy. Owner of the farm, Andy has been in the Sheep and agriculture business for many years. Sheep are his best friends. It is his dream to retire on the farm with a wonderful business that he can share with all who visit.
Sandie brings the educational expertise, working with vision impaired students across Staffordshire, as well as having a creative eye. Ever supportive, Sandie is a key part in making the cogs turn smoothly.
Meet Kerry, our loyal little Collie. At 16 years old she's a little on the deaf side, but sprightly as ever helping to guard the farm and round up the sheep (even if she isn't very good at it).
