There are plenty of things to do close by to keep you entertained during your stay at Spicer Manor.
Close to the nearby town of Stocksbridge is Underbank Activity Centre. If you’d like to arrange something for your group to enjoy, this is the place to come. You can try your hand at everything from kayaking, paddle boarding and archery to mountain biking and zip lining, but remember to book in advance.
From pear trees and vines to a fairyland garden, the grounds of Cannon Hall Park & Gardens are full of enchanting surprises for the young and old alike. Take a trip around Cannon Hall Farm, which recently featured in the ‘Springtime on the Farm’ TV series, before exploring the Georgian house, which has a display of fine artworks collected by the ceramicist William De Morgan. In the summer months, you’ll find the Maize Maze close by, which offers hours of fun as you look for the clues to find the way out of the corn jungle.
For classic car enthusiasts and lovers of nostalgia, The Carding Shed is not to be missed. With its array of stunning vehicles, as well as a vintage clothes store, this place is a hidden gem tucked away inside a disused mill. There is also The Oil Can Café on site which will cater for your breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea needs. Find it just off Dunford Road, a mile outside Holmfirth.
On a hill overlooking the town, you’ll find Holmfirth Vineyard. You can find out why the Holme Valley is the ideal location for producing wine on a tour of the vineyards, before enjoying a tasting session.
For the more artistic, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is situated just 20 minutes away. The park is the leading international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture, including an ‘open air’ space with over 80 sculptures to discover.
If you are green fingered, you will enjoy a visit to Wentworth Garden Centre. The setting here is unique, with former Italian and Japanese gardens on display. The restaurant is a great place to go to enjoy fresh, local produce.
For the shopaholics, Meadowhall has everything you need. Situated right next to the M1 motorway in Sheffield, the centre is one of the largest in the UK, boasting over 280 stores, 45 eateries and a cinema.
