The broomhead Estate
The Broomhead Estate is tucked away in a little known, yet incredibly beautiful part of the Dark Peak. It’s located down a winding moorland road about 30 minutes from Sheffield. It makes a fabulous spot for a short break or longer holiday at our B&B, Shepherd’s Hut or holiday cottage. We are not on the tourist trail, although the attractions of the Peak DIstrict are all within 45 minutes drive. Look at the photos in the gallery to see how lovely the area is.
The estate has been in the Wilson family for more than 700 years and we run a working upland sheep farm. Ours is the fourth house on the site and we are gradually restoring the Victorian gardens which are at their best in the spring when the rhododendrons and azaleas are in bloom. The site was a Cromwellian stronghold in the Civil War and we will be glad to tell you more of its history.
We have a choice of places to stay: the B&B (see below), the holiday cottage and the shepherd’s hut. Just take your pick and get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you to our very special corner of Britain.
Catherine and Ben Rimington Wilson
In the north eastern corner of the Peak District high up in the Ewden Valley is our family-run bed and breakfast at Broomhead Farm. With magnificent views down over the Broomhead reservoir and barely a house in sight, it is hard to believe that we are only 30 minutes from Leeds and Sheffield.
At Broomhead Farm Bed and Breakfast we can offer you a most comfortable and relaxing stay at our newly converted former stable block with its turreted tower.
Downstairs you have your own cosy book-lined sitting room with a wood burner, providing a comfortable space to relax after a hard day’s hiking or sightseeing in the local area. Upstairs there are two bedrooms – either twin or double – with their own en-suite bathrooms with bath, toilet and sink.
You will wake up to a spectacular view from your bedroom window and have breakfast in the blue dining room. After some of our own eggs and bacon, we encourage you to put on your hiking boots and explore the local area.
a home grown breakfast
We have taken every care to provide the best possible breakfast. We have Saddleback pigs which provide us with some delicious sausages and smoked bacon and a few hens for eggs and source as much food as possible from local producers. We make our own jam and marmalade and honey comes from hives on the moor. In the summer we also serve home grown tomatoes. We have scoured the area for the best ingredients which have to be passed by two very fussy critics, our two boys, Johnny and Eddie.
So much to do in the area
There is plenty to see and do with Sheffield, Leeds, Holmfirth, and the Peak District on your doorstep. Why not have a day out in Holmfirth, the location for the BBC series “Last of the Summer Wine” and visit the programme’s exhibition centre or have a refreshing cup of tea at Wrinkled Stocking Tea Room? There’s so much to do in the Peak District with Chatsworth, Wentworth Woodhouse, Magna Science Museum, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the Blue John caverns and many more all within a 45 minute drive., There is something to do for everyone in the local area.
If you are wanting to take advantage of the 200 mile expanse of the Pennine Bridleways, why not bring your horse for a wonderful riding holiday or your mountain bike?
