Sheffield Manor Lodge

Sheffield Manor Lodge is a hidden gem in the English landscape – perfect for a family day out, or as a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Learn about the Manor’s fascinating history -built in the 12th century as a hunting lodge with a 2,500-acre deer park, then evolving into a grand Tudor home housing the noble 4th Earl of Shrewsbury. Perhaps most infamously it was the place Mary Queen of Scots was held captive for 15 years before being executed in 1587.

There are also some stunning wildflower meadows on-site, as well as some ancient Tudor Grounds to explore. There’s an aromatic apothecary garden full of medicinal and culinary herbs, and a beautiful lavender labyrinth to get lost in!

Where can I find Sheffield Manor Lodge?

It's just east of the city centre.

Feeling peckish? Visit the Rhubarb Shed Cafe for a selection of fresh and tasty food, ranging from lunch options (ciabattas, salads, gourmet burgers), to simply coffee and cake. There are also vegan and gluten-free options so there’s something for everyone!
