Broadbottom is a pretty village sitting on the edge of the Peak District National Park. It was mentioned in the Sunday Times "Best Places to Live" in 2014 - not a bad feat for our quirky little village. The village has a real community feel, with many events happening through the year including a yarn bomb, scarecrow competition, village show and a duck race. There is a cricket club with teams playing regularly over the summer. The club also hosts Gin & Beer Festivals and occasional music nights.
By rail you can reach Glossop within 10 minutes in one direction whilst the vibrant city of Manchester is 25 minutes at the other end of the line.
If outdoor pursuits are your thing, then all the Peak District has to offer can be reached within a short drive or put on your boots and head straight out of the door. There are numerous walks and cycle routes in the immediate area. Kinder Scout is the nearest hill of note, with the Pennine Way and Etherow Country Park also worthy of a mention.
If you are a golfer then there are several courses within a 30 minute drive - Glossop, New Mills and Saddleworth to name but a few.
Throughout the year there are many events both locally and in the surrounding area you should be able to find something to suit you - from Country Shows to Comic-Con!!
Lymefield Garden Centre is a short walk away. It is a family run enterprise for all you green fingered folks - expert advice is always on tap. There is also a recently expanded farm shop offering local produce with on-site butcher and cheese counter. They also have an excellent café/restaurant offering cooked breakfasts, lunches and amazing cakes 7 days a week.
