About our home

Our home was built in 1904 and is in the suburbs of Sheffield, a central location in England from which to explore all parts of the UK. Sheffield is well served with public transport and is a short distance from international airports at Manchester, East Midlands, Doncaster Sheffield and Birmingham. The city is on the outskirts of the Peak District National Park, 555 square miles of beautiful countryside offering many places of interest and a wide range of outdoor activities.

The house has been renovated and includes an indoor heated swimming pool, large garden and spacious South-facing conservatory. A separate free-standing covered area in the garden features a wood-fired oven, perfect for baking pizzas.
