About this listing

We are happy to provide a continental breakfast for an additional £5 per person.
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. Please note there is limited head height in the wc. 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 facilities. We will also be happy for you to use the washing machine if you need it . We are happy to provide a continental breakfast at £5 per person payable during your stay.
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!)
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.

After a background in both the public and voluntary sector I am now semi-retired. I love music and dancing, e.g Lindy Hop and Swing and Jive. I also belong to a local gym where I also do yoga and pilates. I enjoy food and drink and generally socialising. I also like to go for walks in the Peak District and occasionally cinema and theater. I also like travelling when I can.
I live with my partner Mike who is a musician, a trainer and an occasional dry stone waller. He also enjoys socialising and running and sometimes I persuade him out dancing! We have been accepting guests for over 3 years now and we really enjoy it. We have met some lovely people.
