Broomhill and Crookes are deemed as a sought after student area, with Sheffield University being within the S10 boundary. This has led to the bubbly atmosphere of Fulwood Road and Crookes Road with its local supermarkets, independent shops, pubs, takeaways and restaurants. Properties here offer an excellent investment opportunity, with many properties being let out to students and young professionals. This being said, Broomhill and Crookes have still managed to maintain a very family friendly feel about them, with the area being in high demand due to the well regarded schools and lovely parks.
If it’s green space you’re after, then S10 has this in abundance. The Botanical Gardens on Clarkehouse Road are a real horticultural delight, with a lovely café/restaurant and numerous events throughout the year such as ‘Art in the Gardens’, ‘Music in the Gardens’ and Open Air Theatre. Endcliffe Park, Weston Park, Bolehills Park, The Ponderosa, Lydgate Park and Crookes Valley Park are also all within the S10 area. Leading out towards to the Peak District from Endcliffe Park is Forge Dam and the Mayfield Alpacas. It’s easy to forget you’re so close to the city once you’re walking through the trees and fields there.
In regards to eating out, you really are spoilt for choice in S10. Almost every cuisine preference is catered for, from take aways such as Fish and Chips, kebabs, pizza, Chinese, Indian, and Mexican to restaurants whose offerings include Turkish, seafood, French and Thai.
Thyme Café in Broomhill is most definitely worth a visit if bistro style freshly made food is what you’re after. The menu changes daily and is written on large chalk boards dotted around the restaurant. Lokanta offers authentic Turkish food and Chez Lalou serves French cuisine in generous portions. Bucher and Catch is exactly what the name suggests and is a meat and seafood lover’s heaven. If a more traditional pub and grub is what you’re after then look no further than The York or the Crosspool Tavern.
