Feelgood Farm is an 18th century farmhouse and home, comprising a boutique hair salon, tattoo studio, and community cafe space (opening Autumn 2017).
We are not a typical enterprise – we serve clients free a wide variety of fabulous teas, coffees, and cake or tiffin of the day, and we offer a calm loving fun atmosphere quite unlike typical shops and cafes.
Increasingly Feelgood Farm offers a space for anyone dealing with emotional challenges such as bereavement, stress, depression, illness, and any other anxieties or demons that can cause your mind to make you feel low or very sad or stuck or empty, or worse. The community cafe space is available for groups to use (donation only – there is no fixed fee).
Feelgood Farm is in Anstey, 4 miles north-west of Leicester city centre, on the edge of the beautiful countryside of the Charnwood Forest and nearby Bradgate Park.
The farmhouse is one Anstey’s oldest buildings. Built in 1767 as Hurd’s Farm, it was a working dairy farm until 1990, when it became a family home. It remains with the same family. The cafe space exists alongside the businesses Hair by Nelly and Tattoo by Alex. Alan Chapman founded the free work/life education website Businessballs.com here and continues to be based in the farmouse, as tea-boy, gardener, odd-job man, etc.
Alan, Nel, Jesse and Alex offer a uniquely special place where our clients become our friends; service is sensitive, caring, and joyful; and the atmosphere is just like being in a friendly home, which is exactly what the farmhouse is (home to Alan and Nel).
Come see us for a cuppa and a slice of cake.
