This lovely aparment is around a 10 minute drive to the city centre. I would definitely recommend this home to those looking for a homely and modern stay in Sheffield. Bal was an amazing host and was very accommodating. The fridge and cupboards were stocked on arrival. Overall a great experience! Thanks again.

Beautiful, well-equipped, comfortable house

4 of 5
The house comfortably accommodated our large group, and the owners provided a number of thoughtful touches which made our stay all the better. The kitchen is well equipped, and there's a plentiful supply of crockery and cutlery so you don't find yourselves short of plates or mugs whilst the dishwasher is running. It was useful to have both the Aga and the gas cooker when catering for such a large group. I would thoroughly recommend this property.
