Working in Cranborne

Cranborne Estate

We are proud to have helped provide many local businesses with the premises and environment they need to succeed.

We recognise the benefit in renovating the historic buildings, traditional barns and stable blocks and have seen a growing demand for these converted units for flexible commercial uses.



In 2015 we started the regeneration of the redundant farm buildings at Holwell Farm, about half a mile outside the centre of Cranborne.

Orchard Bay Bakery: Chris Wakely set up as a small independent baker in 2015. When he had outgrown his home kitchen, we were able to give him space in Cranborne Stores for a small bakery. Orchard Bay at Cranborne Stores quickly grew and soon Chris was looking for bigger production premises. The Holwell development for Sixpenny Brewery was underway and this pair of former farm garage/workshops was available for renovation.

We worked with Chris to make sure the building was food-safe and during the works, extended into a vacant unit next door to allow for expansion into a retail shop and pizzeria.

“Having supported Chris from his early days and first bakery within Cranborne Stores, we are delighted to see him grow into a fully-fledged artisan bakery at Holwell. The added business synergies of being next to the Sixpenny Brewery Tap means his Friday-night pizzas are now highly sought-after”.
