About our home

Do you enjoy the theatre, cinema, art galleries, restaurants and shopping but also love beautiful scenery, hill walking, rock climbing and picturesque villages? We are lucky enough to have all of this within 15 minutes of our lovely home in the leafy, western suburbs of Sheffield.

Our 1930s detached house is situated in a quiet residential area of Sheffield overlooking the beautiful Mayfield Valley. We are south facing and enjoy a light and airy through kitchen, dining and living space which give good views of our mature garden. Flowers, shrubs and lawn make the garden an inviting area in which to sit, eat and relax. A front facing sitting room offers a quiet haven for watching the TV and winding down in the evenings. Downstairs also consists of a utility room and hall. Upstairs we have two double bedrooms, toilet and shower room available. Both bedrooms are south facing and enjoy views across the valley.

Our facilities include sound system with an assortment of CDs, internet enabled HD TV, exercise bike, washer, dryer, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, electric oven, gas hob. Within 5 minutes walk there is a small supermarket, post office, newsagent, hardware shop, florist, green grocer, butcher, optician and wine shop. There is also a local park 2 minutes from the house.

With 2 universities and 3 teaching hospitals Sheffield offers a vibrant, multicultural city. According to Wikipedia: 61% of Sheffield's entire area is green space, and a third of the city lies within the Peak District national park. There are more than 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city, and an estimated 2 million trees, giving Sheffield the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe.

Within ten minutes drive from our home you can be in the city centre with 2 theatres to choose from (the Crucible theatre will be familiar to snooker lovers), three cinema complexes including an excellent independent cinema. We have several art galleries and museums and the beautiful, free Botanical Gardens. For those who enjoy shopping the city centre offers both the high street stores and independent shops, and 25 minutes away is Meadowhall, the largest indoor shopping centre and entertainment centre in Yorkshire. Sheffield has an active music scene boasting two concert halls and a wide variety of clubs and pubs.

If you wish to be a little more active but remain local, you have the choice of 3 indoor climbing centres, mountain bike trails, golf courses, Olympic swimming and diving pools all within easy reach. There are many enjoyable walks in the countryside from the house either out towards the Peak District or through the woodland parks towards the city and the cosmopolitan area of Hunters Bar with its bars, cafes, delis and assorted independent shops.

Five minutes drive will take you into the beautiful Peak District National Park where you are spoilt for choice. Walk the hills and dales, cycle one of the several quiet cycle trails (bike hire available), mountain or road bike more challenging hills, climb on the gritstone edges and boulders or limestone cliffs or just enjoy the magnificent scenery. Alternatively visit a stately home with Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall all within a half hour drive.

Transport links from the city are excellent, we are well served with 10 minute bus services into the city and from the Midland Railway Station you can be in London in 2 hours. Trains also run frequently to historic York (45mins), Leeds (45mins), Manchester (60mins) and Birmingham (100mins). Sheffield is positioned off the M1 and the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors or East Coast resorts of Whitby, Scarborough and Bridlington are all within a day visit. Close to three major airports: Manchester (60mins), East Midlands (60mins), Doncaster (50mins).

Sheffield is well placed for so many facilities and activities, no wonder we enjoy living here and we are sure you will too.
