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 South Yorkshire

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The garden was a perfect informal setting for our summer barbecue party. We put up bunting in the trees and decorated the tables'

'My hen night was everything that I had hoped. All the girls loved the being in farmhouse, and they loved Lemmy too, who was spoilt all weekend'

'Jordanthorpe Farm was just the job for Mum's 70th birthday - all the family fitted into the place, and we had a smashing celebration dinner. It was far nicer than staying in a hotel'

Great, characterful house, perfect for our hen do

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our hen do. It's away from other residents so we didn't need to worry about noise but close enough to walk to the church for bell ringing, the park run and a pub. It's just a short drive to the peaks where we had a wonderful walk from Hathersage along Stanage Edge and a meal at the Scotsman's Pack. There's an aga and a rangemaster which made cooking breakfast for everyone easy. Simply perfect for us.

Lovely quaint 16th century rabbit warren of a house! Gorgeous, perfect for big groups!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend here celebrating a hen do for 13 persons of mixed ages. The house was lovely, so quaint and overflowing with character. Plenty of room for the 13 of us to relax in the living room, eat in the dining room and prop ourselves around the kitchen table. We loved the charm of the place and all it's lovely knick-knacks, the rooms were all comfortable and clean and really well turned out, there were lots of comments about how comfortable the beds are.

The location was a little hidden away, but the directions provided by the owner were very clear and helpful, and you don't feel like you're so central, it all feels very tucked away.

The owner was most helpful in helping us with recommendations for transport companies and suggestions for local activities - thank you so much!! A lovely weekend!

Great place for groups to meet up

  • 4 of 5

We booked this property to stay as an extended family for a weekend whilst attending a family party in Sheffield. It is a great place to stay for this sort of thing. It is very old and quirky but charming and has great character. It is also very comfortable, with a lovely cosy lounge, plenty of sofas for everyone to sit on, and felt very homely. The beds were comfortable too, and we had enouigh beds for various groups of childen to share which was good. We enjoyed all sitting round the huge dinning table for meals, and the house is very well equipped.

The owners were helpful in providing information before and during our stay, and there were christmas decorations up as we stayed in December, so it felt festive too.

I loved having a go at cooking on the aga, with the help of the Mary Berry aga cookbook provided. Managed a sunday roast for 10 of us!

This house was perfect for our needs, and I would recommend it to groups meeting up. It is not quite a rural as I had imagined but this was not a problem. Do take note of the directions provided by the owner to get there first time, but once you have found it then it is easy to come and go.

Good facilities nearby for shopping and eating out.

We would stay again. Thank you to the owners and thank you from my son for returning his i-pad charger he left behind!

Lovely, quirky and friendly place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We were a hen party or 11 people looking for a place to relax, enjoy the countryside and also have fun. The property was perfect for everything we wanted. With a wonderful big dining room and plenty of kitchen facilities and cooking equipment, we had a fantastic evening dinner. It's proximity to the Peak district meant we were not far from some great country walks and pubs, and the ample bedrooms and space meant we could all stay very comfortably.

Fantastic hen party for 14 ladies!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 14 ladies thoroughly enjoyed this house and all it had to offer for a three night hen party stay! Arriving at the house we were pleasantly surprised to find it all set up, heating on, fires stacked, tea and biscuits on the table and all ready to settle in. We all loved exploring the house with its maze of rooms and two stair cases. The bedrooms are cosy, the living room lovely with the open fire and the big grand dining room was perfect. Our favorite room was the kitchen which was incredibly well equipped (especially compared to most holiday cottages) and full of character. We loved the aga and the homely feel.

Our only difficulty was in ordering taxis to take us to Sheffield because none of them could find the house! We ended up having to wait on the main road. We did a food delivery too and the driver almost canceled our order when he couldn't find us! We wondered if it would be worth putting a sign on the main road to direct people as it just looks like the school entrance.

Other than this minor detail we absolutely loved it and would definitely come back with families or friends in tow. It's fantastic value when you compare the price to 14 people staying in a hotel and incomparable in terms of facilities and character. Thanks for everything Judie!

Great place for family get togethers

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at jordanthorpe for a family celebration. The house is full of character and has lots of space. The dining room seating 14 was a nice feature, although we didn't get time to use it. The kitchen is very well equipped for dining and cooking. We visited the Peak District everyday and only took about 30 mins so it's an ideal base if you want to go out and about. Thank you Judie and Patrick for letting us stay in your lovely house and for the card and boxed biscuits.
