Sheffield is fast becoming one of England’s must-visit Northern cities thanks to its love of art, friendly locals and the fabulous nearby Peak District National Park. Here’s Culture Trip’s guide to the best hotels from which to spend a weekend exploring.

The Garrison Hotel

The Garrison’s crenellated 160-year-old walls once guarded military men and acted as an ammunition base, but now provides a boutique hotel experience for any visitor planning to stage a siege on Sheffield. The history behind the building is evident; beneath its turret-topped roof there are still remnants of old jail cells. If you’re looking for a drink in the evening, head to the aptly named Guardhouse Bar, and luckily, the restaurant’s fine-dining fare is a cut above what the soldiers were once served.

Located slightly outside the city, this spectacular guest house is where people believe Picasso stayed in 1950 while attending the Peace Conference. Today, it’s owned by Scandinavian designer Tiina Carr, whose flair is noticeable throughout. With just eight rooms, each one decorated in its own, simplistic and stylish way, it feels cosy and homely. They’re named after different birds and have the kind of magnificent roll-top bathtubs you’ll want to hop in and never leave. The restaurant is friendly and serves a range of treats to suit all taste buds.

    This period mansion-turned-boutique hotel is the kind of luxury weekend escape that couples will particularly enjoy thanks to the romantic vibe and nearby Sheffield Botanical Gardens. The extremely comfortable beds make up for the simple decor, as does the satisfying breakfast, which offers plenty of options. Sheffield city centre is accessible by train or bus, or head to the nearby Peak District if you want to enjoy a walk with fantastic views.

    The traditional pub here has been built upon to add more guest rooms, and the result is a welcoming, authentic-feeling hotel. Located just at the edge of the Peak District, it’s a prime spot for ramblers and nature enthusiasts – but those who just want some rest and relaxation will benefit, too. A spa treatment room is an added perk of the accommodation, while the hotel can arrange activities such as kayaking and clay pigeon shooting for more active guests. The food in the bistro is delightful, thanks to a varied menu and plenty of local ingredients. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, and even have air conditioning for the warmer summer months.

    Whitley Hall Hotel

    This ivy-clad, 16th-century mansion sits just outside of Sheffield in the South Yorkshire countryside. Twenty acres of gardens surround it, including some woodland, making it a honeypot for hotel lovers who like their city break with a side serving of green-fingered good looks. Legend has it that Mary Queen of Scots spent a night at Whitley Hall during her sojourn in captivity at Sheffield Castle and Manor Lodge – though the fortunes of today’s guests look somewhat brighter. Rooms are cosy (some have four-poster beds) and the restaurant offers British and international favourites made with good old-fashioned Yorkshire ingredients.
