The rural beauty of idyllic Bradfield – complete with a medieval church, Norman castle and cosy pubs – will take your breath away.
Bradfield is actually made up of two villages joined by a steep, winding road that’s not for the faint of heart. High Bradfield clusters around the fine 15th century Church of St Nicholas and the site of a Norman castle, and boasts far-reaching views across the picturesque Upper Derwent Valley. Low Bradfield centres on the picturesque bridge over the tranquil River Loxley.
Whether High or Low, Bradfield is a wonderful place from which to explore Sheffield and the Peak District National Park in Northern England, and to get a taste of quintessential English village life. With its own brewery, welcoming pubs scattered among the pretty gritstone cottages and nearby Our Cow Molly ice creamery, there are plenty of places to while away a few pleasant hours.
Bradfield is 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Sheffield, which is just over 2 hours from London by train.
