The Space

New Accommodation in Sheffield
Spacious and light double attic bedroom in Victorian terraced house, consisting of double bed, chest of drawers, hanging space, bedside table and desk and chairs. Tea / coffee making facilities, T.V. hairdryer and Internet access. House is fully double glazed with central heating. We have recently installed a wc and shower in the attic space.

We joined Airbnb last October and have had many guests since. Our house is situated in the superb Hunters Bar/Ecclesall Road area of Sheffield. There is an excellent range of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops all within 100 metres of the house. The universities, hospitals and city centre are all within walking distance though there is also an excellent bus service into the city.

We are also just round the corner from Endcliffe Park which leads onto Bingham Park and out into the Peak District (so a superb location for walkers).

Guests are welcome to use our sunny kitchen/diner with the usual facilities of kettle, microwave, oven etc. We will also be happy for you to use the washing machine if you need it . We include continental breakfast but guests can opt out of breakfast and save £5 per person per night.

We are: Rita, a part time worker in a local store and a keen dancer: and Mike, a self-employed musician, tutor/trainer and dry-stone waller. We enjoy meeting new people and providing information about our lovely city.

Please note - we have a fairly steep staircase, a small bathroom and live on a steep road where parking is not always easy. We also live in an area where there are a lot of students so it is occasionally lively which may not always be suitable for people wanting total peace and quiet during their stay. (Generally it is very quiet and peaceful!)

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the kitchen facilities and use of the washing machine. They are also welcome to use the small patio garden.

As from September 2015 guests using the attic bedroom will have their own wc and shower.

Interaction with Guests

We enjoy chatting with our guests and making them feel at home, but we also understand if you need space and rest after a long journey! Either way we are happy to try and answer any questions you may have about visitor attractions, local restaurants etc.

The Neighborhood

Welcome to Sheffield - 'the world's largest village' it was once described to me when I first started working here. The friendliness and humour of the city isn't just a cliche. We really love our little neighbourhood of Hunters Bar, having moved here in February 2013. It manages to encapsulate the best the city has to offer, with lively cosmopolitan life the length of Eccleshall Rd right to the city centre; yet you can also pull your boots on at our front door and walk straight through the parks and woods into the Peak District, up onto the start of the Pennine Way (if only our old knees were up to it now!)
We have thriving live music pubs within walking distance, a great jazz club a short walk away on Wednesday nights, the best Irish music sessions this side of Dublin at the legendary Fagan's, sophisticated wine bars and eateries, theatres including the wonderfully miniscule Lantern Theatre in adjoining Nether Edge - I could go on and on (and he frequently does! - Rita). Come and see for yourself!

Getting Around

The bus routes to and from the city are excellent and run every few minutes down Eccleshall Rd, making it easy to get to our house if you get off at the Hunters Bar roundabout. Friendly locals will usually help if you're not sure. There is on road parking at our house but it is frequently full and you may have to park further up the road. We are on a steep hill so not so good in snowy weather.
