Tankersley Manor

I've 'sort-of' been on holiday.

This is Tankersley Manor, just off J36 of the M1, north of Sheffield in Yorkshire. It began life as a seventeenth century manor house but is now part of a hotel group with conference rooms, a restaurant, spa & leisure facilities and a bar. It has obviously expanded from it's origins and is smart and well managed, rather than being full of character, but it was very nicely decorated, the staff were polite and helpful and the part of the grounds which I saw looked beautifully kept.

No! I didn't stay here!

A friend lives in the area and I wanted to stop off and see her as I travelled north. She suggested this as a convenient meeting point. I had an enjoyable lunch in very pleasant surroundings, but it was the company which really made it lovely! Thank you Claire :)


  1. All looks good to me. Can you take your verification bit off ?

  2. Ladies who lunch, eh? Sounds fun.

  3. I have passed it many times but never actually stopped off there. You inspire me to pay a call.
