This comfortable and spacious attic room is a 10 minute walk to the city and a 15 minute walk to the station. Both universities are a quick bus ride away. The mega-shopping centre Meadowhall and the glorious Peak District also very close!
The space can fit two people comfortably, perhaps even a third small person if you ask us in advance. There is a friendly resident cat, so probably it wouldn't be a great idea to come stay with us if you are allergic to our furry monster.
You can use all of the spaces in the house, just not our bedroom (that would be weird :) ). British terraced houses have only one bathroom, so that would be shared. You are free to use the kitchen as long as you tidy up after yourself. Smokers will be asked to smoke outside. We also have an office area that you can use for work.
We are both postgraduate students and creative freelancers, so we are often out. Yet we seek to stay in touch with our guests at all times if something goes wrong and you cannot figure out the door lock or something. We are always up for cultural exchange, so sharing meals and going down to the local pub is something we are always open to!
Highfield, or Heeley, has a huge community vibe, with community events taking place nearly every day. There is also the Heeley City farm, where you can pet animals, buy fresh produce and eggs, or enjoy a warm homemade meal in the organic/vegan friendly cafe. It's all volunteer run! Concerts, exhibitions, events abound...
There is a bus stop two minutes away with buses running to nearly every corner of Sheffield. If you come by car, there is free on-street parking at the house. The supertram line is also not that far, about a ten minute walk away.
Most often, we just walk into town.
From the nearest airport Sheffield/Doncaster, one must take a bus, then a train to Sheffield, and then walk or take a bus to our house.
From Manchester, there is a direct train into Sheffield, and then you can walk or take a bus to our house.
We have a swimming pool! We mean, everyday in England is like a swimming pool. Though we have a few umbrellas, they tend to break easily in the vicious winds, bring your own.
Very friendly and welcoming hosts with a beautiful house!
Don and Martina are a very nice and friendly couple with a very clean and tidy house that made my stay very comfortable and easy. The room is independent and quite big, being perfect for short stays not far from the Sheffield city center. I definitely recommend them as a hosts!
This was our first AirBnB experience, and we will for sure repeat! Don & Martina and Jimmy Changa (the cat) were all great hosts. The room was perfect. We felt like at home, and the location of the house is very good, close to the center of the city.
We highly recommend this place to anyone going to Sheffield.
My girlfriend and I stayed with Don and Martina last weekend and they were the perfect hosts. They could not have been any more friendly, accomodating or helpful, giving us directions to the best restaurants, welcoming us with a cup of tea and a chat, and understanding when we missed our train and checked out later than planned! Our room was fantastic - large, bright and clean - and well located for the train station and city centre. We couldn't recommend them enough!
Don & Martina are very nice couple, we enjoyed the stay there. The room at 3rd floor is very nice and cozy..Both of they are so helpful.Recommend to all.
Martina and Don are an amazing couple - their hospitality knows no boundaries. If you want to rent their room, I assure you that you will feel perfectly, like at home. If you want to spend the evening alone, no problem if you want to talk too, nobody will have anything against it. The room is cozy well maintained and has a great atmosphere. One thing is certain: if a weekend in Sheffield is just at the Don and Martina place! Thank You and see You in the future :-)
Don and Martina was a really sympatic couple, welcoming and listening.And the house and the room was pleasent and quiet.
And they have a lovely cat :)
During our week in Sheffield we stayed at Don & Martina's apartment, and we have to say that from the very first step into the door we felt like we were home and that they have been our housemates for years.
Everything was really welcoming and clean, our room warm and location perfect for our needs.
If you are planning to spend a nice week in Sheffield, well we would definitely recommend Don & Martina.
