An English B&B offers accommodation that is somewhat different from standard hotel fare
We are actually located 2 miles (3km) west-south-west of the city centre, a small, quiet (unusual in a location so close to the city), residential 'cul-de-sac' -with good on-street parking:
Just off Psalter Lane; 3-minute walk from the A625 Sheffield to Castleton road (named: "Ecclesall Road"), along which run several bus routes (generally numbered between "81" "88"), the nearest bus-stop is at "Hunter's Bar" roundabout.
To get an idea of the area, and to help find our place (because many of the city's taxi drivers know less of Sheffield than you do, apparently), try going to:- Multimap.com , and enter our postcode (S11 8WB) when prompted to choose a search using either this or a street name.
The House is approximately 100 years old, and was extensively altered and refurbished in 1992, and further in the year 2000; the only 'new' materials used were for technical systems: wiring, plumbing, heating controls etc., the rest was achieved entirely with re-claimed materials, antiques from various periods, (with a little carefully selected help from Ikea!) and so on.
There are only three guest bedrooms, (2x doubles and a twin-bedded room), which are of course centrally heated, and each contains a colour television, together with tea-and-coffee making facilities, and each has its own bathroom.
Breakfast is served in a large kitchen-dining area, which is the most idiosyncratic part of the house. The room is large (about 9 metres by 4.5 metres), always warm due to the aforementioned Aga, which is up to temperature 24hrs a day. Two sets of 'French windows' open onto the balcony which overlooks a surprisingly sizeable garden -in which can be seen about 6 hens (for eggs and as pets, not eating...) -and the sun (when available!) streams into the room in the morning. The whole room has lots of wood, combined with bright colours, and has a pleasant 'ambience'; and we didn't copy any magazines, or buy the kitchen from a shop!
In the interests of freshness and quality, the choice of breakfast is limited to:-
As of September 2013, the single-person occupancy of a room is : £49.00 (inclusive of breakfast)
The price for double-occupancy (including a twin room) is : £69.00 (inc. breakfasts), which of course works out at £34.50 per person.
There is no VAT. to pay. (if you are from abroad, don't worry about what that is; you just don't have to pay it!)
We are unable to accept credit card bookings (due to the exceedingly small scale of our business)

Check-in time is normally between 3.00pm and 6.00 p.m., though we can arrange something outside these times. In any event, we prefer an estimate of time-of-arrival, so that we can ensure someone is here to greet you (and let you in!); we do, after all, do things like go to Sainsbury's, pick up from school and all the myriad fascinating details that go to make up 21st century life.
Check-out time is normally 10.30 am. on the day of departure.

P.S. -I notice there's a little teeny bit of product placement going on here, with mentions of Sainsbury's and Ikea - however, I'd like to point out that no money has changed hands - well, not in my direction anyhow. I think that kind of thing influences one's editorial style in completely unacceptable ways.
On the other hand, any pan-global operations that do actually need to find a home for some of their vast marketing budget, I think I might be able to help...
