About Whirlow Grange
Whirlow Grange was founded in 1953. In 2004 following a major refit Whirlow Grange Limited a not for profit Charitbable Limited Company was formed. The company now manages the centre at the cutting edge of conferencing, function management and delivery, residential conferencing and Christian Spirituality and retreats.
What better location could you imagine? Situated amongst attractive and extensive grounds, and located 4 miles from the centre of Sheffield and 4 miles from the Peak District.
The region offers a welth of heritage, and groups wanting to explore this can take the short journey to a number of historically significant sites, including Hardwick Hall, Chatsworth House, Botanical Gardens and the industrial museums in and around Sheffield.
Whirlow enjoys a tranquil setting in a peaceful rural community and its gardens won a Gold award in Sheffield in Bloom in 2008 and "topped its Class" in 2009.
As well as affording easy access to one of Britain's most popular National Parks, Whirlow provides a great natural setting with two acres of grounds providing the ideal surrounding for a refreshing stroll, and the perfect outdoor setting for a range of functions.
As the natural home of the Church of England in the Diocese of Sheffield - when it comes to conferences and retreats - the added bonus of the chapel at Whirlow should not be underestimated.
This is a genuine space for peace, quiet and reflection and is open to all.
As well as hosting an excellent spirituality library, the Chapel is wired for sound, has a top level keyboard and flat level access, underfloor heating makes this a top venue. There is seating for 40 and can easily accomodate 120. It also boasts a Church of England Wedding License.
We have a dedicated and professional team who are here to make your stay with us as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. We are frequently told that it is our friendly approach and the commitment to our guests that separate us from othe conference venues.
