Quote: We recently spent a weekend in Sheffield as part of a fantastic package deal we got. Our main reason for visiting was to visit Chatsworth House, but we managed to do some other things whilst we were there too.

Meadowhall Shopping Centre

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "For the Shopping Enthusiast!"

Quote:
Meadowhall was the last of the places we visited on our recent weekend in Sheffield. It is a huge indoor shopping centre that has lots of shops catering to all budgets and tastes and is worth a visit if you are in the area.It is conveniently located just of the M1 motorway and is very well signposted from there. If you are travelling by car, the post code for your satnav is S9 1EP. Once you leave the motorway though it is really easy to find thanks to numerous signs along the way and there is plenty of free parking when you get there in an underground car park that has direct access to the shopping centre, Meadowhall is open every day at the following timesMon - Fri...Read More

Chatsworth House Farm Shop

Attraction | "Fabulous Fresh Food"

If, like us, you'd have expected the Chatsworth House Famr Shop to be located on the grounds of the manor itself, you'd be wrong. It is actually located about a mile and a half away in the village of Pilsley. This is not to say that it isn't worth visiting because it is. Not for nothing has it been winner of the Farm Retailer of the Year award twice in recent years.The shop is very easy to get to once you have left Chatsworth House, thanks to the many signs pointing it out. There is ample parking when you get there and it is open from 9am until 6pm every day expect for Sundays when it is open 11am until 5pm. We actually visited on a Sunday and could have done with it opening a bit later ac...Read More

We recently spent a weekend in the Sheffield area and visited Chatsworth House as part of our stay. we loved our visit, which was a full day of a thing by the time we'd explored the absolutely huge gardens and the not so small house itself.It was a lovely day when we visited, so we decided to spend as much time as possible in the gardens and this wasn't hard to do because there is so much to enjoy in them. When you enter, you get a little map which is quite useful for planning your walk around the gardens. It is actually really easy to plan a walk that goes in pretty much one big circle so that you see everything without doubling over parts.We went to the Emperor Fountain and C...Read More

Restaurant | "Lacking That Bit of Spice You Want"

We recently stayed at a hotel in Rotherham that was sort of in the middle of nowhere, so we were looking for somewhere to eat. The pickings were slim, but a quick google search told us there was a Chinese restaurant nearby that had reasonably good reviews and offered a cheap buffet on Sunday and Monday nights. The restaurant does not look good from the outside; in fact it would be easy to drive right past it thinking it was a disused building. Fortunately we knew from reviews that it looked like this so we didn't drive past! Instead we found one of the limited spaces on the street outside the restaurant. Parking there is free after 6pm. Inside was a bit of a jaw dropper to be h...Read More

We got a fantastic deal at this hotel through the travelzoo.co.uk which included lots of extras for a great low price, including a couple of tickets for Chatsworth House, which is nearby(ish). The hotel is a lovely one with great staff although the lack of facilities and fact that it caters more for the business visitor than the leisure visitor is what stops me from giving it a full five stars.Getting there was fairly easy because the website offers pretty good directions, although the location is no fantastic as it is located at the edge of an industrial estate full of office buildings and the like. There is a supermarket and an outlet store withing walking distance but that is literally ...Read More
