The kitchen is considerably better equipped with the basics than most other holiday properties, and with generous arrival gifts. We had a fair bit of snow while we were there and the loan of sledges was great for the kids. The owner was great at answering my questions before arrival and assisted when we asked for help. We were visiting relatives who live in Sheffield and the property is so good and well located we are already planning our return visit!

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.

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.
