The Oteley Estate is situated on the shores of the mere in Ellesmere. The estate has been in the family for over 500 years and has seen many changes from lavish country house to army hospital camp. In recent years however the 2,000 acres of land has become home to two stunning herds of native breeds of british cattle; Beef Shorthorn and Highland.
Here at Oteley, we believe happy, healthy animals produce the best meat, and our meat boxes are testament to that, with a delicious selection of quality meat also available in many of the Ellesmere Town Stores. Our Highlands our purely grass-fed, and are free to roam the lush pasture all year round.
We are advocates of extensive farming, not intensive, keeping the environment’s best interests at heart. Through being purely grass fed and not relying on cereals and grains to be grown for their consumption, they help to protect natural ecosystems and wildlife habitat.
There are minimal food miles with our beef. These animals are born here, they stay here, and then they are sold directly to customers and local shops
Put a spring in your step, take in the countryside, and enjoy tasty treats and meals at our Oteley Pop-up Shop and Cafe!
Events and Open Garden
On the shores of the Mere at Ellesmere is the beautiful location of Oteley Garden. Accessed via the rolling parkland and through the original Stable Yard, the 10 acre garden is home to an array of fantastic trees, shrubs and extensive lawn. Within the garden are many features from the original house including a boathouse, tower and swiss cottage. The garden is one of a handful of gardens that first opened in 1927 when the National Garden Scheme was launched and has continued to open once a year to raise money for nursing charities ever since. Follow us on social media for details on open dates and events.
