Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is a truly magnificent pile, well worth a visit. There is a variety of tours on offer as well as free flow. There is also a varied programme of events. This ancestral hi me has been the location for films and TV series. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. The staff and volunteers are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Please do visit as often as you can and support the 25 restoration programme of the charitable trust.

    Parked in the village car park and started our walk at the church. On to the Main Street where we called at the village shop. There is a tearoom and a couple of pubs along with the post office. Nice walk along the lane behind the cricket field and past the windmill house. Went on to Wentworth Woodhouse and eventually up to Hoober Stand. Lovely walk.

    It was my daughter’s 3rd birthday and she’s fascinated by animals and this experience seemed good for her. We opted for the VIP Tour and at first I was apprehensive as the price was lower than what I would expect so I expected a mediocre experience but something the kids would enjoy which was fine.

    When we got there, we were greeted by the kindest person Toby. Toby was so accommodating to us and brought the kids out of their shells. He was brilliant with our kids who at times can be shy, but he made them feel so welcome and confident around the animals.

    The experience itself was beyond anything I would’ve imagined for that price. It was so interactive and hands and my kids felt so special especially my daughter on her birthday. They did so much! We as adults thoroughly enjoyed it - the whole experience was unforgettable.

    Toby made the experience even better by just being a great host and a kind person. He is a credit to the Farm and we wish him great success in the future. He allowed us to create some fantastic memories as a family and that is worth more than anything.

    We will return to the farm very soon and do it all again as the kids couldn’t stop talking about it. What a great find!

    Roche Abbey is a lovely spot. The abbey is a ruin with only a small percentage left standing. But the real joy of the place is the surroundings. The setting feels very remote without being so at all.
    The countryside is peaceful and the walks nearby are tranquil and relaxing. The abbey is a great spot for a good old ramble and a picnic. Take a flask, or something stronger to sip and have a break.
    History, peace and quiet, greenery, nature. What's not to like?

    Popped in for a coffee after seeing the board outside. Lovely church, clearly very historic, but unfortunately the information panels were blocked by tables and chairs so I wasn't able to read them. The back of the church was very cluttered with stuff, and whilst I would have liked to look around the building, the sign adjacent to the coffee table advised that only volunteers could proceed beyond that point.
    The chap serving the coffee was pleasant though, and the coffee was nice, and good value at only £1.

    This is one of the nicest modern stadiums I have visited. It has great facilities, I particularly liked the outside bars around the stadium. As an away fan, we were in the south stand behind the goal, the stand is steep and gives you great views of the game. A top stadium.

    I spent a couple of hours here today. Janet and Steve were excellent; they took their personal time to show me around and educator me about the building. We discussed it’s current status and future. It was a very worthwhile experience and when I’m next visiting from the USA I’ll be sure to visit again. Thank you.

    Tucked away in a small housing estate and yet on the other hand it can be seen for miles. It's not currently open, but the public footpath gives you views over the countryside towards Wentworth Woodhouse and their follies. Parking is by the side of the road on the estate.

    Great architecture and well maintained grounds make this church one of my favourites in the South Yorkshire area.
    Definitely worth a visit.

    If you are on a walkabout around the Wentworth area the mausoleum is a must to have on your list of follies to see.

    You can’t miss Treeton Church. It stands on top of the scarp and is a well known landmark for drivers leaving the M1 and dropping down Sheffield Parkway into Sheffield. Its square tower dominates the small mining settlement around it.

    There has been a church here since Saxon times and it is one of the few churches in South Yorkshire recorded in Domesday Book. Nothing remains of the Saxon church and the present building dates from the late C12th. It has been extended, altered and restored over the years. leading to what Nikolas Pevsner describes as “a confusing building”.

    The church, apart from the top of the tower, is built from the local Rotherham Red Sandstone, which really does look red on a sunny day. The top of the tower was added later and was built from Magnesium Limestone, in marked contrast to the rest of the church.

    The earliest part of the church is the nave and north aisle which were built in 1175, possibly on the earlier Saxon church. The chancel was built in the C13th along with the base of the tower, which was originally offset at the south west corner of the church. It only became part of the church building when the south aisle was completed in the C14th.

    In the C15th, the nave was extended at the west end to line up with the tower. A south porch was built and the nave roof was raised with a clerestory added. The Brampton Chapel, at the east end of the south aisle dates from the C16th.

    There was the usual restoration of the church in the Victorian times. The plaster was scrapped off the inside of the church, leaving the bare stone walls so much beloved by the Victorian restorers. They also removed any wall paintings and tantalising traces survive on the north chancel arch and above the lintel of the window in the south aisle.

    In the back south west corner is a C13th effigy, which is one of the oldest in South Yorkshire. This is now very eroded and any shield has been removed. It has been suggested that it was Sir Christopher Talbot who was the second son of the Earl of Shrewsbury and who was Lord of the Manor of Treeton and lived at Sheffield Castle.

    The high altar has pre-Raphaelite style angels painted on the front. The small reredos on the east wall has the symbols of the four evangelists. The Brampton Chapel is reached through a carved screen. The pews have been removed and it is now used as a meeting or exhibition area. The painted altar with triptych above is C19th.

    It is very attractive church, set in the centre of the village and much loved by its congregation. It is open for coffee on Thursday mornings. It is usually open as part of the Heritage Open Doors.

    If you want good food and drink in fantastic surroundings, this is the place to go.
    The church has original woodwork and the pulpit and organ add to the ambiance. Lots of nooks and crannies, tiny doors and the possibility of stumbling across secret passageways. Absolutely worth repeat visits.
    The shop is full of fascinating knicks and knacks and magical doodads. I will be back soon.

    This memorial is in abiding remembrance of those from Rawmarsh and Parkgate who fell in the wars involving the United including the two world wars and Afghanistan. The monument takes the form of a Cenotaph and is on a raised area, approached by steps. The cenotaph is a tall tapering rectangular column and only the names of the fallen from WWI are inscribed on it along with the dedicatory inscription. Behind the cenotaph is a semi-circular wall where there are rolls of honour for WWI and later wars are on bronze plaques.

    This monument is a memorial to the servicemen of Wales and Kiveton who lost their lives during the First and Second World War, and in the subsequent conflicts and peacekeeping duties for the United Kingdom. The monument depicts the figure of a soldier standing at ease with a rifle slung over his left shoulder. The soldier is wearing the typical attire of the first World War and on his head, a steel helmet.
