How to get here
The Brentwood Hotel is just over 2 miles off the M1 at junction 33, in the direction of Rotherham on the A618 Moorgate Road. To find use using satnav, use the postcode S60 2TY.
The tree-lined road the hotel stands back from was once a popular residential area for the merchants in coal and steel – the two industries that led to Rotherham’s rapid expansion during the 19th century. Dating back over 100 years, The Brentwood Hotel’s classic Georgian-style front with a pilaster entrance looks out across a beautiful tree-lined street.
To the rear of the hotel stands Boston Park, now a public park but once owned by the Earls of Effingham, who built a hunting lodge here known as Boston Castle. The Earl was a supporter of the American War of Independence, and Boston Park was given over to the people of Rotherham in 1876, to mark 100 years of American independence.
Prior to its industrial period, Rotherham had been a successful market town for over 800 years, following the granting of a charter by King John in 1207. The early town grew up on the banks of the River Don and River Rother and the chapel on Rotherham Bridge, the Chapel of Our Lady, is one of only four surviving examples of a medieval bridge chapel in the UK. Built in 1483, thought to have been funded by the Rotherham-born Archbishop of York, Thomas Rotherham, pilgrims prayed there for a safe journey. The bridge was the site of an English Civil War battle in 1643, when Rotherham was a Parliamentarian town.
With the arrival of the Industrial Revolution, the town built a reputation for high-quality iron production. Soon famous for making the nation’s earliest iron bridges, the town also produced the best and most reliable British cannon – including guns used by Nelson on HMS Victory.
The famous Guest & Chrimes Foundry, one of Rotherham’s flourishing 19th century foundries, was responsible for inventions such as the screw-down tap, leading to a monopoly on the most advanced taps, pumps and water meters of the time. They also manufactured the iconic New York City fire hydrants.
Today, it’s possible to explore the town’s historic sites – including its industrial past – with the help of walking guides freely available from the town’s visitor centre.
Rotherham gets its name from the Old English word hām ‘homestead, estate’, so it literally means ‘homestead on the river Rother’. Thanks to its convenient location just outside the busier surroundings of Sheffield, Rotherham is popular with those visiting the area on business and people here to enjoy the region’s places of interest.
Sheffield (6 miles)
The bustling city of Sheffield may be known as Steel City, but over one third of the city lies within the Peak District National Park, and it is the ideal gateway to the glorious moorland landscapes of the Peaks. Sheffield itself offers many attractions including the Millennium Art Gallery, the iconic Sheffield Winter Garden, the largest urban glass house in Europe, and the magnificent Sheffield Cathedral. Getting round the city centre is easy on the Supertram network, which also connects with the Meadowhall shopping centre.
Meadowhall (2 miles)
Just 2 miles outside Rotherham is Meadowhall, the largest indoor shopping centre in the Yorkshire and the Humber regions. From Apple to Armani, Zara to Zen Gifts – the complex houses over 280 stores and a multiplex cinema.
Sheffield Arena (4 miles)
Big name music acts, comedy legends, and sporting icons – the Motorsport Arena Sheffield has played host to them all. Home to the mighty Sheffield Steelers ice hockey team, there is always something going on at South Yorkshire’s premier arena venue.
Magna Science Adventure Centre (2 miles)
If you’re visiting The Brentwood Hotel as a family, the Magna Science Adventure Centre is well worth a visit. Aimed squarely at kids, this award-winning educational attraction is divided into five pavilions – Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Power.
Conisbrough Castle (8.5 miles)
The remains of this 13th century castle are dominated by a 97-foot high circular keep. Recently restored with a wooden roof and floors, audio and visual displays let visitors of all ages imagine what life would have been like in the golden age of knights. An English Heritage attraction, the castle famously featured in Sir Walter Scott’s Ivanhoe.
Roche Abbey (8 miles)
Set in a beautiful valley landscaped by the renowned Capability Brown, Roche Abbey’s excavated foundations reveal the most complete ground plans of any English Cistercian monastery. Managed by English Heritage, the Gothic ruins are ranked among the finest in Britain, and can be best admired while picnicking by the stream.
