Brocco on the Park in Sheffield
For a hotel with a fascinating backstory, look no further than Brocco on the Park (****). The refurbished Edwardian villa was once known as the Peace Guest House in recognition of a reported stay here by Pablo Picasso during his famous visit to Sheffield for the World Peace Congress of 1950. While in the city he drew a peace dove on a napkin which is now on show at the Weston Park Museum. That peace dove has inspired the avian-sounding names of Brocco’s eight luxurious bedrooms. All of the rooms have super stylish Scandinavian-inspired decor with wooden floors, lambswool blankets and . The hotel’s signature room, the Dovecote, boasts a free standing copper bath and a loveseat designed by Allegra Hicks.
