Whirlowbrook Hall in Sheffield – A brief History
A stone built wholly impressive house set in fantastic grounds, with amazing views over Ecclesall and the outskirts of the peak district. In the 1920’s Walter Benton Jones purchased the house with his wife Madge and with their full time team of ground staff they developed the grounds to a very high standard indeed. Both Madge and Walter were very keen gardeners but when Madge passed away in 1938 the house and it’s 39 acres of grounds were sold to a consortium of buyers who included the Graves charitable trust and the Sheffield Corporation. It was sold for the princely sum of £15,000!
In 1951 the grounds were opened up to the public and known as Whirlow Brook park , with the house now being used as an amazing venue for weddings, events and conferences. Up until 2012 there was a beautiful café open to visitors in the Hall but this sadly closed for unknown reasons.
Saxon Hotels took over the running of the Hall in 2013 and signed a 25 year lease on the property, and in 2017 announced they would be reopening a new café, by building on an existing property in the grounds. This was mooted as being a bespoke eatery style café in keeping with the quality of the Hall and it’s grounds.
Whirlowbrook Hall offers the perfect blend of charm, elegance and historic charm. The manor house sits high on an elevated terrace with amazing views of it’s finely manicured grounds and the surrounding vista.
