The Field Kitchen, Holt
An unexpectedly cool cafe hidden away in this quiet Wiltshire village dishes out coffees, cakes and salads to grateful workers and visitors
Track down a gem of a cafe for a refreshing injection of contemporary cool in this sleepy Wiltshire village. It’s located in the Glove Factory Studios – a workspace hub for a variety of small businesses, many in digital media.
The modern open-plan cafe is usually buzzing with a combination of workers at laptops, local dog walkers stopping in for coffee and visitors to the two National Trust properties nearby – The Courts Gardens and Great Chalfield Manor. It has a lively contemporary-eco vibe that might have you sharing one of the long industrial style tables, or relaxing in slouchy leather sofas inspecting the cool mags on hand.
A counter bursting with homemade cakes and cookies is mouth-watering, but save some room for the posh salads and risottos at lunchtime. Sunny outdoor tables are tempting for a summer lunch in the stylishly planted courtyard, where there is plenty of room for kids and dogs.
The cafe is also available for wedding and party hire – something to think about while you eat your cake.
