About Judie Kingdom
We are Judie and Patrick. I am originally from Surrey and Patrick from Yorkshire. Much of my childhood and early life was lived in Wales, and Patrick comes from an Irish family, but was born and has lived all his life in Yorkshire. His father was a doctor who came to work in Sheffield as a GP in the 1950s. I have also lived in Devon. Patrick and I have been together since 1982 and have one grown up son. I also have two older children who live in Essex and Germany, and who have provided me with three lovely grandchildren. I am a retired librarian, having worked in both public libraries and in the Arts, Film and Media section of Sheffield Hallam University Learning Centre. These days we are rather nomadic! We both enjoy travel, reading, Scrabble, crosswords, cooking and wine!
Judie Kingdom purchased this Farmhouse in 1986
Why Judie Kingdom chose Sheffield
We totally fell in love with this beautiful, spacious Grade II listed old farmhouse which dates back to around 1660. The house has oodles of character and history, having been the birthplace in 1781 of the famous painter and sculptor, Sir Francis Chantrey. The position is excellent being on the fringe of the city of Sheffield, and yet also close to the countryside of the Derbyshire Peak District. Jordanthorpe Farm is a friendly welcoming farmhouse that lends itself very well as a venue for a group of friends or relations wanting to hold an informal get together in a central location, which is easy to reach for guests arriving from the north and south, east or west of the country.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The farmhouse enjoys close proximity to a wonderful park which is a rare breeds centre, and which also has a small animal enclosure ideal for children to see goats, rabbits, piglets, chickens, guinea pigs, deer, etc. There is also a Leisure Centre within easy walking distance with a swimming pool and tennis courts for hire. Jordanthorpe Farm is a central building in a particular area which is known locally as 'Chantreyland' and offers modern conveniences and comfort within an historic environment.

Great family base for a wedding
Plenty of space, convenient location, well-equipped but, most of all, full of character
Great affordable option with large living spaces
Great living spaces. Close to travel networks but still private. Close to Graves park run. Not deluxe but not a deluxe price so suited our group. Ground floor bedroom for Grandma. Super service from host who returned left behind items. Would return.
A hidden gem!
Fabulous home full of character and felt so welcoming, had some very precious family time and made some beautiful memories. We will definately return again. We were sad to leave. Thank you to the owners for sharing their lovely home.
Jordanthorpe Farm is a perfect place to hold a large family gathering,
Wonderful home for a large family gathering, house is steeped in history, fascinating children and older family members alike. Having brought our family from the US back to Sheffield for our 50th wedding anniversary with our extended family here in Sheffield, we were hoping for the ideal place to
entertain everyone, we found it. Plenty of room, comfortable beds, good cooking facilities, etc. For us, it was close to our old haunts, Derbyshire and the city in easy driving distance. We have loved our stay here
The owners were great, providing us with plenty of information ahead of time and all the help we needed during our stay. Thank you
Perfect venue for a wonderful family gathering.
Jordanthorpe was the setting for our family gathering to celebrate our daughter's wedding in Sheffield. We had 14 to sleep and everyone was comfortable. The dining room is amazing. Our candlelit wedding eve supper was a highlight of the weekend.
Judie and Patrick were really helpful in advance and gave excellent instructions about the use of everything in the house. It is a really characterful place and we will all remember our stay here fondly.
Lovely place full of character
Stayed at Jordanthorpe Cottage for a hen do. On arrival I was not sure about it as it is in quite a random location - just off a bypass next to a School! When I got inside I was blown away with how lovely it was and full of character. The property is old and they have maintained that theme throughout the property so it really does keep its character. The facilities are excellent and there is everything you would need for a weekend/weeks stay.
They priovide useful items such as cleaning products, bin liners etc so you do not need to take these.
The property is ideal for large groups as the lounge area is the perfect size to sit around and chat and the kitchen and dining room have large tables where everyone can fit around. The rooms are all a great size - there was only 1 of the double rooms that was very small but still fine for a short stay.
The location is not very scenic but if you are wanting somewhere close to Sheffield then this is the perfect location. It cost us approx £10 in a taxi into Sheffield City Centre.
I cannot reccommed this place enough. All my party loved it!
Nearest bus stop a 10 minute walk with regular services into Sheffield centre.
The centre of Sheffield with the usual city amenities, cinemas, galleries, museums, shopping, etc, is only a 20 minute drive away, as is the large Meadowhall Shopping Mall. The attractive market town of Bakewell is also only a 20 minute drive. The Derbyshire border is literally a stone's throw from the property. Many charming Peak District villages are less than a 30 minute drive away, such as Eyam, Hathersage, Castleton, Ashford-in-the-Water and Youlgreave.
A lovely park is within easy walking distance of the farmhouse. This includes lots of rare breeds, and also features a small animal section which is delightful for young children, with piglets, chickens, rabbits, goats, deer, etc. The Rose Garden Cafe provides refreshments. There is also a Leisure Centre within easy walking distance, with a swimming pool and tennis courts for hire. A group of local shops lie just 2 minutes away by car, with a large supermarket a little further on, which also has a cafe and garage.
